Just returned from an excellent week on Vilamendhoo. The purpose of the holiday was for some downtime after a particularly difficult 2021. Highlights include: food quality and selection - and this comes from someone who is particular on eating well, staff friendliness, standard of cleanliness of room, eating and drinking areas and other facilities, and the house reef. Vilamendhoo is one of the larger islands and it was fully booked, but it never felt it. Lots of additional activities on offer, but this provided a conundrum for me - if you want a holiday with lots to do, do you book the Maldives as a destination? IMO, the Maldives is somewhere to go and do very little, other than behold the natural beauty of creation. Recommendation: the Water Villas and Beach Bungalows with Jacuzzi are on the quieter end of the island with a calmer restaurant - if you want to properly chill, book one of these rooms.

Dear edwardb Thank you very much for taking your valuable time to write this lovely review in regards of your weeks holiday with us at Vilamendhoo. I am excited to see that you treated yourselves with a special holiday after a difficult 2021 and having enjoyed our offers and services provided. As you mentioned even if we are fully booked the Island keeps its relaxed feeling especially at the Adults only facilities. Having a good island size to be able to offer a bit more including water and land sport I think is great for anyone visiting the Maldives for the first time. I will share your kind comments with my team as they are the ones doing their outmost and with passion to provide a memorable holiday experience. We all would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for having visited us. It would be with great pleasure to welcome you back to our Paradise Island to further enjoy the True Colors of Maldives hopefully soon again!

Hotel's Favorite
Love Vilamendhoo, it really does feel like coming home in a way (i wish this was my home, to be honest). I've been here a few times already, and will be coming back only to this island after experiencing a few others. This place is pure paradise and they really go out of their way to make your experience perfect. When you're a returning guest, they also find extra ways to pamper you. The welcoming smiles here, no matter who you approach, really make a difference. The entire staff, from waiters, to the diving team, receptionists, customer care, management, the spa ladies, the excursion gang, are all so helpful and caring. The covid measures were easy to follow and don't interrupt with the casual setting, and you only have to wear a mask in closed areas and on line for the buffet, for example. The island was exceptionally clean and the gardeners were constantly planting new trees and working on display. Food was great, with a large choice as usual, although there could be more vegan options. The all inclusive is really wroth it if you want extra activities and not to worry about snacks and alcohol. The spa, as usual, wow. Great staff, and the Balinese message pure, heaven every time. Can't wait to come back (actually already working on that). The only non smiley face i would mention, was by the doctor on the last day, checking for PCR, she was probably the least communicative in the whole team. But otherwise, Vilamendhoo is the full package!

The water villa experience was great and we highly recommend it. The island is beautiful and even thought the resort was full, we never had the impression of being crowded. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great diving, saw mantas and whale sharks

Dear eric Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review in regards of your holiday with us at Vilamendhoo. I am excited to see that you had a fantastic and relaxing time on the Island and that expectations have been fully met. It is truly stunning as you say how it is even as we are fully booked not giving this crowded feeling at all indeed. Having been diving with Mantas and Whale Sharks I belief has left memories that will last for a lifetime! I will share your kind words with my and the team from Euro Divers who are all doing their outmost to make such dreams come true. We all would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for having visited us.

We was here two times for the last year. Really good house reef, really nice divecenter. The food is OK, you will usually find something teasty. Very-very good coctails, mocktaild and coffee. The AI price is not costs if you drink not an alcohol. Not excellent room service and in-restaurant service. Want to return here again. Want to note the divecentre staff Yuki and Pierre as the best staff on the island :) Improvements the management may perform: 1. Baby sitting / kinds club. It is very necessary for the families. 2. Cancellation policy in the divecentre and watersports. 3. Excursion booking policy - it works not very good, some trips are full-booked usually. 4. Hammocks and swings - it would be nice to have it. Thanx.

Dear j2me Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review in regards of your second dive holiday with us at Vilamendhoo. I am excited to see that once again you fully enjoyed diving as well as our offers and services provided. I have taken note on the points mentioned. As we are following our Covid guidelines we are not able to offer babysitting during this time and swings have been removed due do sanitizing that could not be guaranteed. The day tours are very popular and therefore usually quite fast booked. As dicing is done by Euro Divers we have no influence on cancellation policies. However I am more than happy to put this point forward. I will as well share your kind comments with my tea who are all doing their very best to provide a memorable time away from home. We all would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for having visited us twice this year. It will be with great pleasure to welcome you back to our Paradise Island to further enjoy the magical underwater world hopefully soon again thank you for having visited us. It would be with great pleasure to welcome you back to our Paradise Island to further enjoy the True Colors of Maldives hopefully soon again!

We enjoyed the house reef and the possibility to see whale shark in the south of the atoll. During Christmas and New Year there were many children so book the bungalow for adults only if you want it to be quiet and peaceful when you reed your books

Dear AnnikaT Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review in regards of you yearend holiday with us. I am excited to see that you fully enjoyed our offers and services provided as well our Christmas and New Year activities. The "Adults Only" area is a bit more quite during school holidays indeed where the Resort can get quite busy having families with us. I am sure swimming with a Whale Shark has left memories that will last for a lifetime! I will share you kind comments with my team wo are all doing their best and with passion to make such dreams come true. We all would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for having visited us. It would be with great pleasure to welcome you back to our Paradise Island to further explore the wonders of the Maldives Sea hopefully soon again!
