This was our 11th visit to the Maldives but first time to this island. We arrived at velidhu by speedboat which took 1 hour 30 mins, no messing around waiting for seaplanes, we were on the water with a free bottle of water within 10 mins of clearing the airport. On arrival we were greeted by Paul at the jetty,... More

This island had everything we wanted. Peace and quiet, good food, attentive staff, comfortable beds, and an aquarium at your door. We found it strange that the days went so quickly when all we did was swim and eat, and twice a day walked round the island, which took all of 20 minutes. I did get through 15 books in... More

We returned to Velidhu in February for our 6th visit (1st for 5 years) not only to see all our lovely friends who work on the island but to also celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was great to feel relaxed the minute we arrived, Mr. Paul is a great addition and asset to the island - a mover and... More

Second visit to this island (first one was in 2011). All I can say is: this is one of my favorites places in the world. The island is quiet and very relaxed, no loud music, no parties during the day or night. During my stay I noticed that most of the guests were from Germany and Switzerland, and a few... More

beautiful island, great atmosphere, great food, superb housereef... ideal for all those who like snorkelling and diving.We saw sharks, turtles, stingrays, sea eagles.. lots of coral and beautiful tropical fish. Relaxing doesn't come too difficult either:-) Not to be missed: the Manta safari and the snorkelling tour with the fast boat.

We had 2 weeks in mid October 2013 and stayed in a beach bungalow, all inclusive. Having read previous reviews we were not sure what to expect. For anyone in any doubt: this is an extremely well thought out resort and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The resort is very informal and are happy for you to wonder around... More

This was our first holiday on a resort island. We have previously visited for a day while on a safari boat. We arrived off the seaplane and were welcomed on to the island and escorted to reception to check in. We stayed in a beach bungalow, which was quite basic, but had everything you needed. The bed was large, sheets... More

We stayed there for 2 weeks. The staff were friendly and considerate. I enjoyed having full body massage in the spa. The beach is nice, the food is good. At the time we were there, we found that this island have rats, and they were almost everywhere around the island. It make my stayed (as I don't like rats) very... More

I stayed there for 6 days 5 night in a water bungalow for my business trip. The staff there are too friendly, food varieties are great for a vegetarian like me! I would recommend their buffet style for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will not feel bored with their foods as they change their menu everyday!!

Recently back from 12 days and totally loved the entire place. If you want total peace and quiet, a real 'no shoes, no news' holiday and very little to do, then this is perfect. If you want choices of restaurants and bars, activities, shopping an lots of buzz then you need to go elsewhere as you would hate it.I had... More
