We're not fussy but we do like perfection, and after many holidays around the world in recent years, we found paradise in Veligandu! We couldn't fault one things about our trip. Where to start? Highlights have to be the staff, exceptionally well-trained, the place seems to operate smoothly and nothing is a problem to them. Mention to Mahmood our room... More

Beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters. Great snorkeling. Plenty of chairs along the whole island on the beach for your own little private beach. We saw sharks, fish, sting rays and a manta ray. There is apparently one main turtle but we couldn't find him while snorkeling. Resort is perfect. Cant wait to go back. Bring good snorkeling equipment and... More

Everything about this place was magical from the beautiful island, to the room, to the staff. We received excellent service from start to finish. The food was great, especially when the restaurant prepared the fish we caught. We look forward to returning there someday.

Not a place to take children but definitely for couples who want to enjoy each others' company in peaceful and stunning surrounds. The staff go out of their way to ensure your stay is memorable and special mention should be made for Moosa and Mahmood who both went above and beyond their role to ensure our stay was better still....

This beach is at one end of the island resort. Towels are available near the pool which is close to the beach. An outdoor shower is also present there. Restrooms are close enough. The best part is the bar where you could grab a few drinks and relax on the beach, There are some nice seating arrangements around the bar... More

this was our third trip back to Veligandu,something we vowed we would never do because there are so many islands to choose, the island is perfection for us from the moment you step off the seaplane, a very warm greeting awaits and a well needed fruit punch to cool and cold towel to cool off with after the long journey...

Stunning white powder soft sand with the warm Indian Ocean lapping at the shoreline. Shady spots can be found under palm trees, cabanas, sun beds with umbrellas or relax in a hammock. The sunset side has a lovely breeze which keeps you feeling comfortable in the heat of the sun. The beach is kept immaculately clean and has plenty of... More
