Got the oppurtunity to stay the last 4 nights our our two week holiday in the Maldives here for no extra cost. It is outstanding. Rooms are beautiful. The beach is like paradise. Food wonderful. The bar is sunken with a mixture of quirky seats and even beds!! Staff like all Maldivians....very friendly and helpful.

“Paradise on earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2010

My wife and I travelled to Veligandu for the first week of our honeymoon before another week in Lily beach. It is truly an amazing paradise.

The island is quite small (10mins to walk around) but you never really see other guests accept a few around the pool or at dinner. The staff are constantly cleaning and sweeping up leaves from the pristine sand. All of the staff make you feel like you are the only guests on the island.

The food is very good and you must save some money for the romantic dinner on the beach. We had the Wagu beef and lobster. You basically get your own waiter and again the staff cannot do more for you.

The snorkelling is good but the edge of the reef is a long way out in places. Dive off from the peer which is good spot. The reef sharks will keep you entertained for hours as they patrol up and down waiting to catch the fish at the islands edge. Disco night was the best night for entertainment with all the bar staff up at the end of the night to finish the party.

A quiet and romantic place where I could easily retire to. We will certainly be going back as soon as we can.

We really could not think of anything to improve, sorry.
