This was our 2nd time to the island celebrating our anniversary, we booked direct-all inclusive & ended up with the end water bungalow-stunning view! the water bungalow's are really nice although pretty basic. The food was really good we always found plenty to eat, the water so clear-little reef sharks swimming around the edge, plenty of snorkelling to do without... More

This was our second visit to this island and still our favourite. We were 3 couples celebrating a special birthday and could not have been happier. The island is very small and we swam around it on several occasions. We had beach bungalows on the side where the seaplanes landed (104,110&112)and don't understand anyone complaining about the noise. There were... More

We were looking for an island that hadn't been spoilt with modern day development and Velidhu certainly didn't disappoint. Apart from the addition of a few water bungalows it was very much traditional Maldivian. No need for footwear. Totally relaxing. Food that was certainly better than 3.5 stars. Lovely staff. Clean and comfortable accommodation. We had booked a beach bungalow... More

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
