Location, staff, service, food all above our expectations. We are expats living in The U.A.E and have visited many 5 star and above hotels and resorts, so honestly didn't think anything could match the the service etc we have here. Have to say we were wrong, this place is one of a kind and I have truly been spoilt ,... More

We thought our visit to Gangehi last year couldn't be bettered - wrong! Veligandu setting, staff, facilities, accommodation and food all first rate. On arrival we were given a jacuzzi water villa on the sunrise side of the island although we had requested a sunset one - no problem, as soon as one became available, it was ours. Stayed on... More

Long awaited trip to the Maldives. Booked through Kuoni (price matched)! Good flights via Dubai, easy transfer with seaplane. Take some swimwear in your hand luggage for when you arrive if there's a chance your room won't be immediately ready. We chose sunrise side jacuzzi beach villa 116 - very quiet, beautiful uninterrupted beach views and easy walk to everywhere!... More

This was our first visit to the Maldives and the resort really was stunning (it was hard to find anywhere without a great view!) We stayed in a Jacuzzi water villa and it was lovely, with everything you need including more fantastic views. The resort is very quiet and peaceful and the perfect place to unwind and relax. Our only... More

We honeymooned at Veligandu in March 2015 and are so happy we chose to go here, I can only hope we can visit again for our anniversary (hint, hint Husband!) It's rated a four star hotel - but we felt it was worth so much more. We booked through Simply Maldives and stayed on AI+ in an overwater jacuzzi villa,... More

Went there in couple for a week, and that will stay as one of the best memories! Extraordinary feeling of being alone in the middle of the ocean, very good value for money for everything, excellent facilities and activities (loved the crab race !). Sunset tour watching the dolphins, amazing dives with rays, sharks, napoleon etc, fantastic snorkling all the... More

"Once in a lifetime experience. Do or die must visit Maldives" This sentence has been my tagline when friends and family asked us regarding our Maldives trip. I had booked Veligandu Island resort after doing some research for the past 1 year. Me and my wife wanted a small, cosy all in 1 island that provides almost everything for their... More
