Arrival: On arrival in Male you may will have to queue for a long time for the passport / immigration paper, they use the same system like in India. Papers are given before arrival in the airplane. From Male to Velidhu Island Resort we took the waterplane which took 20min (with the speedboat it takes 2hours). We booked our trip... More

If you are looking for a "Europeanized" FiveStar+ Resort where you have to wear a tie and shoes for the dinner - you are completely wrong here. If you like the authentic maledivian style with convenient bungalows (means: Clean and functional for the 7 hours sleep at nighttime), a shoeless culture and a lot of green environment you are riight...

We went to this place in Dec-2008 for our first honeymoon (we had other places for second honeymoon) It was an excellent choice for retreat and the service was awesome right from our entry to exit everything was pleasant I would definitely recommend this place for either retreat or honeymoon and do few activities to recharge yourself Highly recommended

We stayed here unfortunately only 4 nights (because we also travelled in Sri Lanka). But we liked The Maldives so much that we go back sometime and then longer. We booked a seaplane and that was fantastic. When we arrived at the island somebody welcomed us and we walked to the reception. We got a juice and then they told... More

My wife and me spent 10 nights on Velidhu Island in December 2014. We had booked a beach bungalow and we had asked for No. 177 which we also got. The island is one hour and 20 minutes from the airport by speed boat. We had a smooth ride , no waves but in bad weather conditions with rough seas... More

I have enjoyed four holidays at Velidhu. It is a wonderful island. It is certainly not the most luxurious island in the Maldives but has a character and charm all of its own. Accommodation is either in beach bungalows or water bungalows. We have stayed in both twice so let me give you the pros and cons: Beach bungalows are... More

We stayed on Meeru last time which is a bigger island and had a water Villa so we're spoilt a bit. However Velidhu is a smaller island with good reef and snorkelling . Good choice of Buffett food and wine. Reasonable entertainment if you want it. Sea planes one in a few times a day which is eventful. All in... More

I am writing this report to bring to bring to everyone's attention how disgusted I was with my recent stay at the Velidhu Island Resort. What the travel company called ‘traditional and rustic’, I would call squalid. Until this holiday, I did not realise traditional and rustic were euphemisms for tired, worn out and shabby. Everything about the accommodation and... More
