In recent times, a considerable effort has been dedicated to identify certain conditions - the so-called swampland conjectures - with an eye on identifying effective theories which have no consistent UV-completions in string theory. In this paper, we examine the anti-de Sitter vacua corresponding to solutions which arise from purely nonperturbative contributions to the superpotential and show that these solutions satisfy the (axionic) weak gravity conjecture and the AdS-moduli scale separation conjecture, without particular fine-tuning of the parameters. We also sketch out their advantages over other constructions.
