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

Had a wonderful stay at velingalu in March 2014. Outstanding beaches with reefs beyond perfect for snorkeling. Stayed in a water villa (No. 125) nicely, but somewhat worn. Good food spicy. Choose rooms facing west, so you get a beautiful sunset.

Veligandu, a very special place in the Maldives, excellent, excellent, excellent.

We booked a 2 week trip to Veligandu through a travel agency, Simply Maldives, who provided excellent and reassuring advice and tipped the balance between this resort and the array of other fantastic alternatives. Our travel consultant was spot on. This is a great resort with everything you would expect of an island resort in the Maldives. Great staff, fab... More

and would not hesitate to go back again. Went back in September 2013 and the weather was not very kind to us. However the resort cannot be held responsible for the weather. The quality of the food and the service once again could not be faulted. I think the Chef was a little bit repetitive on some of the menus... More
