We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Veli in the deluxe overwater bungalows. The bungalows at the end of the jetty have the nicest views but the ones at the other end are closer to the hotel's reef. We snorkelled every day in the turquoise water around the bungalows and saw new fish each time. Wonderful. We also took a couple of trips to the reefs further out – a very different experience in beautiful deep blue water along cliffs of coral - well worth it.
From the moment the staff meet you at the airport, the service is excellent and attentive. Veli is beautifully quiet and blissfully free of children. The kids are all on Dhigu :) The food was excellent and the breakfast buffet was the best we have ever had. We really enjoyed the Thai restaurant for dinner. Such an amazing setting by the edge of the reef with crashing waves and where you can watch the rays and fish as you dine. The staff at this restaurant were particularly good and remembered our room number and what we had for dinner the last time we were there….. You won't want to leave.
