We stayed at the resort for a week in April 2014. What a lovely experience. I spent hours on the internet looking for the right place (10th wedding anniversary) and it certainly paid off. We booked a beach villa on the west side of the island and must say it was the right decision we made (our request was made... More

After a short but expensive seaplane ride from Male, we arrived at this fantastic island resort. Mainly German and British clients. The activity director and head chef are both german. The resort itself is beautiful. Not in the same category as a Conrad or Shangri-la but unique in itself. the resort takes up the entire island. 3/4 of the island... More

Where to start? This was our 1st trip to the Maldives & chose Veligandu because it was small & quiet with a good snorkelling reef & had jacuzzi water villas & included a seaplane trip to get there (which is stunning & only 20mins). The island takes your breath away when you arrive & continues to do it everyday. The... More

We just had two weeks here and as most of the reviews say, this is paradise. The island itself is amazing, the sea blue, clear and warm. The Jacuzzi water villa was perfect for watching the sunset from (if you get the ones on the West side of the island) Personally, I would recommend a water villa in the number... More

The water villa (w jacucci) is a must stay. A luxury and comfortable stay. You get nice view all round the resort with plenty of sun for water activities and tanning. Price for full board is abit steep but worthwhile as you get a wide variety of food choices for your daily 3 meals. The only lacking is standard drinks... More
