We went to Maldives for our honeymoon and gladly we picked the perfect island. Veligandu Island was breathtaking, and the island was really beautiful, coming from the Philippines where we have lots of beautiful beaches, this one trumped all of them. The water villas with jacuzzi is really perfect especially for honeymooners, totally private and really romantic. Nice to wake... More

First trip to the Maldives and this hotel was great. Main point for my wife and I was the fantastic snorkeling on the house reef. We saw sharks, turtles and eagle rays every time we ventured out. The food at the main restaurant is great and there is an excellent variety at the buffet. We stayed in a beach villa... More

Simply a fantastic week, from the moment we were met from the sea plane transfer, to the day we sadly departed. We chose a jacuzzi water villa, as I'd always dreamt that would be part of the whole experience. Our room was at the opposite end of the island to the main restaurant, so it was a lovely shoeless walk... More

I did lots of research before picking Veligandu and I was not disappointed. The island is absolutely stunning, I spontaneously cried at its beauty more than once. I was surprised how hot it was, take lots of sun creams. The island was full when we were there, however this was never obvious, the beach and pool was always peaceful. Only... More

This is our 10th Maldivian Island, and we've done all shapes & sizes. Veligandu is the perfect size (for us) at around 100 huts making it big enough not to get bored, but small enough to allow privacy and ensure the bars & restaurants don't feel full or like a canteen. THE ISLAND incorporates water & beach villas - both... More

this island is a very special retreat for those sun and swim seekers! JBV was high standard - plenty room and right on the beach with fabulous views. Undoubtedly glad we chose the JBV - the water villas weren't to my taste and they all looked the same and too close to each other. The beach every time! Food was... More

We chose Veligandu after reading the Tripadvisor reviews of several resorts and we are delighted that the resort lived up to the good reviews. As stated in some other reviews, the photos on the internet do not do justice to the island and when you walk around the island it seems almost deserted. We loved it and hope to return... More
