There are so many lovely islands to choose from it took a lot of thought to narrow down to this one and so glad we did. Even before boarding the sea-plane we felt Veligandoo must be special, as we were shown to an exclusive departure lounge! On arrival, as you'd expect, it is absolutely beautiful - a "given" in the Maldives! However it's also an absolutely wonderful resort, incredibly peaceful and private, luxurious accommodation, fabulous food, a magnificent spa, great snorkelling and very attentive staff. We chose to have a special a la carte meal on our anniversary. The choices on offer looked really special but I'm not a great meat-eater and I was disappointed that the menu offered few vegetarian options. The restaurant manager asked I leave that with him and he'd get back to me the next day. He returned with a wonderful menu and to my suprise the head chef wasn't offering a choice of the lovely dishes listed but planned to make me tiny portions of each, both starters and main courses. We thoroughly enjoyed our fine dining at a table set for us on the sand and the head chef made a point of coming to see us after we'd dined to make sure everything was to our liking. This is only one example of a number of responses from staff and managemenrt which reinforce Veligandu's reputation for exceptional customer service.
