Anantara Dhigu Testimonials


Anantara Dighu was fabulous, really good for families and the two bedroom villa was perfect, near the pool but very quiet and a good size. Kids ate free when eating with adults (except room service) which was a bonus and the kids club was good – they stuck to the timetable which is unusual in my experience, and they had a great outdoor space with a good play area and all my kids liked it.

The little snorkelling island (Picnic Island) was a hidden gem – we spent most days out there and ate lunch there. Staff were great, lots of shade and water was beautiful.

Overall fabulous, fantastic for young families. I wouldn’t recommend it for couples or teenagers as there were just so many young children. We wouldn’t go back, mainly because there are so many other options to try, however highly recommend it, it was stunning and we loved every moment.

Definitely keen to head back soon!

Thanks for organising it, it was a fabulous trip.
