We had 2 weeks in mid October 2013 and stayed in a beach bungalow, all inclusive. Having read previous reviews we were not sure what to expect. For anyone in any doubt: this is an extremely well thought out resort and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. The resort is very informal and are happy for you to wonder around... More

This was our first holiday on a resort island. We have previously visited for a day while on a safari boat. We arrived off the seaplane and were welcomed on to the island and escorted to reception to check in. We stayed in a beach bungalow, which was quite basic, but had everything you needed. The bed was large, sheets... More

We stayed there for 2 weeks. The staff were friendly and considerate. I enjoyed having full body massage in the spa. The beach is nice, the food is good. At the time we were there, we found that this island have rats, and they were almost everywhere around the island. It make my stayed (as I don't like rats) very... More

I stayed there for 6 days 5 night in a water bungalow for my business trip. The staff there are too friendly, food varieties are great for a vegetarian like me! I would recommend their buffet style for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will not feel bored with their foods as they change their menu everyday!!

Recently back from 12 days and totally loved the entire place. If you want total peace and quiet, a real 'no shoes, no news' holiday and very little to do, then this is perfect. If you want choices of restaurants and bars, activities, shopping an lots of buzz then you need to go elsewhere as you would hate it.I had... More

We didn't actually stay on this island- just called in on day trip from a safari boat. I thought that it was a beautiful island with a very good reef for snorkeling & my fellow passengers said the bar was very nice. However beware- the shop has very little useful stock. Seemed to concentrate on ladies clothing for some reason.... More

It is a gorgeous place for relaxing and diving. The bungalows are densely located, but there are so many trees and plants that you still have a sense of privacy. They are very clean and well maintained. The food at the restaurant was great: freshly prepared and local. There are places both for snorkelling and scuba diving, so you can... More

Just back from 2 weeks on Velidhu. We booked with Kuoni and flew with Emirates from Birmingham. 14th visit to the Maldives in 12 consecutive years (love it...). Flights were on time and comfortable as usual, time always seems to fly on the way there! We booked a seaplane transfer to get to the island as soon as possible, was... More

Pros Food is excellent, not always the best quality but the choice and variety each day is brilliant. Your eyes will light up everytime you sit down to eat. The snorkling around the Velidhu is excellent and some of the best in the Maldives. Trips from the resort are much cheaper than they are from the 4 and 5 star... More

Just returned from two weeks on Velidhu with my partner. I have not been to the Maldives before but was thrilled to see the island as we arrived to land by seaplane. It looked gorgeous. We had bungalow 151 which was on the quiet side of the island with soft sea breezes and gentle waves. Ok, my first impression of... More
