Veligandu has exceeded our expectations! We were taken care of from the moment we arrived at the airport. The island is so beautiful that we couldn't stop taking photos. We stayed at a Sunset Jacuzzi Water Villa which was huge, well-equipped, comfortable and had spectacular views of the ocean and the sunset. Even though we were on full board, not AI, we still received complimentary bottled water every day and had a Nespresso machine with different kinds of capsules. We also received a bottle of champagne and a cake for our wedding anniversary! What a lovely gesture! The food was so delicious and had such a huge variety that we ended up overeating at each meal. There were new dishes every day for lunch and dinner, and the desserts were spectacular! The White Glow Party and the Jazz night were superb, too! We spent hours snorkeling near the beach. The marine life is stunning, my husband even saw reef sharks. The staff in the entire resort was always kind, polite and attentive. We could occupy our room 3 hours before the official check-in time and, since our flight left late at night on the day of departure, we were allowed to stay until 4.30 pm, have lunch and a shower before leaving. I could go on for hours talking about our wonderful experience at Veligandu. If we ever go back to the Maldives, we'll definitely choose them again!

Hotel's Favorite
We came came here for our Honeymoon, and it was everything we could have ever hoped for! It is obvious from the moment you arrive to this resort island that you are in for a beautiful vacation. The resort makes you feel right at home from the start. You are encouraged to be relaxed by walking barefoot, and allowing the staff to literally handle anything for you. We found it very convenient to not even have to make phone calls or look for any staff when needing something, we simply messaged over WhatsApp. The hotels gardens, pools, and beaches are gorgeous. The food was delicious, and was filled with varieties, we felt no need to even visit the alternative restaurant. The waters were dazzlingly blue with pristine white sand beaches. The host we were assigned to was Rifau, he was so helpful and kind to answer any questions, or needs we had during our stay. The resort handled all the accommodations in regards to Covid testing for departure. Last but not least the Jacuzzi Bungalow Villa is a must during this stay!

This was our second time here and it more than exceeded our high expectations. The staff and service are just great. From Melvin, Ajith to Adam, Natasha, Moosa, Lufaf, Hussain, Naeem, Aaskhan, Gilbert, a great, friendly and accommodating team. The atmosphere on the island, the wide variety of very tasty food, the great reef and much more make this island a dream location. It was certainly not our last trip to Veligandu. Thanks to the great team, we really enjoyed or stay with you guys.

We had the most perfect honeymoon at Veligandu. We already had good expectations on Maldives after checking the website, but once there, they were exceeded amazingly. The service, the attention, the kindness of the staff made us feel so welcome and cared for, and the island, that turquoise water... absolutely unreal. We definitely recommend Veligandu to anyone who is looking for a chilled holiday and feel in paradise.

We celebrated our 15th anniversary at Veligandu, and we had an absolutely wonderful time! We stayed in one of the over-water sunset jacuzzi villas, and it was really nice with unobstructed views and the ability to walk right out of the room into the water!

Since the transportation, the resort, the staff, foods until the room all are great. Couldn’t be more happy than what they provided us. Would strongly recommend this resort to my friends. This resort worth of money. Our only concern before the trip was the weather because we visit during low season however the weather was great and we had an amazing vacation.
