I have a mixed feeling about Veligandu as I experienced a rather bad service during reservation through email directly with the resort. I posted it here : http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g298323-i9264-k7607547-Veligandu_resort_dissapointed_before_arrival-North_Ari_Atoll.html That is the reason I only rate this place average. Apart from that, the holiday was perfect! The service there was great. The food was great. The JWV was great. I only... More

We went in May and had perfect weather 6 out of 9 days but even on the 3 days that it rained, we enjoyed the in-house movies, longer... More

This island is absolutely lovely. Perfect paradise. Third trip to Maldives and this was the best by far. The jacuzzi water villa was excellent and very clean.
