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... More

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

Third time to Velidhu after a 3 year break and it is still as good as I remember. Transfer by boat which took 80 minutes, shoes off and on to the cool white sand which was like walking on talcum powder. A short walk to reception to fill in arrival forms etc and then to our bungalow where we had... More

This was our 11th visit to the Maldives but first time to this island. We arrived at velidhu by speedboat which took 1 hour 30 mins, no messing around waiting for seaplanes, we were on the water with a free bottle of water within 10 mins of clearing the airport. On arrival we were greeted by Paul at the jetty,... More

This island had everything we wanted. Peace and quiet, good food, attentive staff, comfortable beds, and an aquarium at your door. We found it strange that the days went so quickly when all we did was swim and eat, and twice a day walked round the island, which took all of 20 minutes. I did get through 15 books in... More

We returned to Velidhu in February for our 6th visit (1st for 5 years) not only to see all our lovely friends who work on the island but to also celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. It was great to feel relaxed the minute we arrived, Mr. Paul is a great addition and asset to the island - a mover and... More

beautiful island, great atmosphere, great food, superb housereef... ideal for all those who like snorkelling and diving.We saw sharks, turtles, stingrays, sea eagles.. lots of coral and beautiful tropical fish. Relaxing doesn't come too difficult either:-) Not to be missed: the Manta safari and the snorkelling tour with the fast boat.
