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

Rooms - Rooms, very good, some a little older and loved the fact it was round and beautifully decorated. Our room was 169 and our friends who stayed in 168 next door was a little older perhaps, but still fine. We had requested in advance for an extra bed to be put in room 168 and it was done as...

This was our 7th visit to the Maldives and won't be our last but will be to this Island, I have read many reviews where people moan about the Mosquitoes and in the past have thought " come on your in the Maldives, they have Mozzies ", but this place takes the trophy, I usually get about 10 bites in...

We had a great time and you can see that staff really pays attention to details like welcome drink, cleaning room when we're away, etc. Everything was nice, the island is just a paradise with the stunning view, clear water, thousands of fishes and a really amazing night sky full of stars! The food was also great, nothing repeated and... More
