For my wife, a 7-year-old son, a 6-month-old daughter and for me The return from a vacation in paradise turned out to be a real survival. As per the staff's recommendations, we prepared to leave the island at five in the morning. Unfortunately, we were not allowed into our planned hydrofoil without giving a reason, and we had to wait an additional 45 minutes, which already created some discomfort. Unfortunately, 5 minutes before the airport it started to rain and the pilot decided to land at sea. From this moment the catastrophe began. 1.5 hours in a rocking hydrofoil without fresh air, the crew gave the impression as if they did not know what to do. We were transported to the neighboring atoll to Łódź, in a moment back to the hydrofoil. Vilamendhoo was informed of our situation and they did nothing to enable us to board the return flight to Europe.   And at the airport we were 30 minutes before the scheduled departure which was additionally delayed by 40 minutes so there was a lot of time to help us. The hotel representatives at the airport had no idea why they were there and the only help from them was the information "you have to buy a ticket for another plane" Total disaster. The hotel is responsible for transporting guests to the airport because they organize it, should be responsible for it, and at least feel obliged to pay additional return costs (considerable costs). The staff's decisions made me not recommend this hotel especially for families with small children

Just returned home from a fantastic 10 night stay in an overwater villa and from start to finish the whole experience was amazing. Arrived on our sea plane from Male to be welcomed by some very smily staff who took us the short hop on the boat to the island and were handed a very cold face towel which was so refreshing after our long journey. Taken to reception and one of the guest services came to speak to us about our check in. The first thing to delight us was confirmation that my request to be placed in a water villa on the North side of the island had been accommodated and we were allocated room 321. The water villas are amazing and for us a must have. Gave us the best of both worlds having privacy with our own decking and access straight into the turquoise sea but also being able to sit on the beach when we wanted. In my opinion the north end of the island is the most beautiful. It’s child free which I wasn’t too bothered about before we went but does make a nice difference. The food was great the best nights for us being the Tex Mex night and Indian although every day was excellent. We were very impressed on the first day the chef speaking to us about the chilli allergy we had and making sure we understood the ingredient signage. The house reef is amazing with us losing count of the number of different fish we saw. The coral is a bit dead looking in places but it must be regenerating given the amount of marine life. Snorkelling is the best I’ve done outside of Australia. Went on a couple of boat trips that are included in the All Inclusive package (The sunset cruise and the trip to a local island). Both were worth it although the time on the local island could have been cut by 30 mins but on the sunset cruise we saw quite a number of dolphins. The spa ladies are lovely and I spent 2 hours having the deluxe package treatment which was worth every penny. All in all this is was one of our best holidays ever and we have returned relaxed and recharged. There are a lot of Maldivian islands to choose from but if you love snorkelling and want value for money this is the one to go for we will be back.

Dear ggmthomson, Thank you for visiting Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa and for taking the time to share your experience with us and with the TripAdvisor community. We were extremely glad to learn that you absolutely loved the experience at our charming resort, whilst enjoying all its barefoot luxuries. Following your comment regarding the corals, unfortunately Maldives were affected by the El Nino in the previous years, where several corals were bleached around the country. Our reefs have been showing signs of recovery and we do our best to raise awareness about our fragile marine eco-system and highlight the importance of treating the coral with extreme care in order to protect and conserve our marine biodiversity. We do hope it is not too long before we welcome you back to your Vilamendhoo for another amazing holiday in tropical bliss. Until we meet again, please contact us directly for future bookings at reservations@vilamendhoo.com. Best regards, Mohamed Zahir, General Manager Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
When looking to visit the Maldives, Vilamendhoo was recommended by a friend who stays regularly. The overall experience exceeded our expectations. The island is beautiful and the reef provides excellent snorkelling. We stayed in a jacuzzi beach villa which was very comfortable. There was a very wide choice of delicious food at the Ahima Restaurant. The staff were all very helpful and there is high level of professionalism and organisation at the resort, right down to being able to take a very early breakfast on departure day ahead of our seaplane transfer. We would go again and have no hesitation in recommending Vilamendhoo.
