We moved to Veligandu after having a poor experience at our original resort. The move was very smooth and from the minute we stepped off the seaplane everything was pretty perfect. Rooms lovely, great choice of food in the buffet and service from all staff was fantastic. Looking forward to returning when we’re able to.

Just got back from Veligandu, we had an absolutely fantastic stay! What can I say other than it is pure paradise, as soon as we stepped off of the seaplane, we were greeted by our island host Rifau who couldn’t have been more helpful, he was brilliant from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, he was always there for us at the end of the phone, as the island hosts are contactable 24/7 by what’s app. With the current circumstances due to COVID, the island make your stay feel very safe due to temperature checks done every morning and everywhere you went there were hand sanitising stations and you were always asked how you are feeling on a regular basis, the only time you need to wear a mask is in the buffet restaurant while getting your food as a all the staff where masks all the time. We stayed in a standard water villa (room 123) which was excellent with great fish around the villa on the sunset side, we loved snorkelling off the deck and was not too far to the reef where the fish were amazing, we were lucky enough to swim with baby sharks, stingrays and we saw a turtle. We were then offered an excellent rate to upgrade to a Jacuzzi water villa (room 152) which was absolutely fantastic, this particular villa had great sunset views. We had superb weather for most days where we could sunbathe on the deck. We went on a sunset cruise and sunset night fishing both were absolutely superb and was lucky enough to catch several fish. We ate in the buffet restaurant for breakfast every morning and most evenings, the food was of a fantastic standard with more than enough to choose from with food stations cooking food fresh i.e Asian noodles to beef Wellington and for breakfast fresh eggs, pancakes and waffles cooked to how you like them, my poached eggs were cooked to perfection every morning, the staff were exceptional and didn’t take them long to remember your room number and drink preferences. A few evenings we ate at Maadivaru the A la carte restaurant, we were lucky enough to sit right on the beach which was truly beautiful and is a must for this resort. My husband ordered Steak which the chef personally came to our table to ask if the steak was cooked correctly for him, which we thought was a lovely gesture. For lunch of a day we had the option of eating in the buffet as were All inclusive plus, we chose to eat in the Thundi bar where we could have snacks, the snacks were enough for us as we are not big eaters at lunchtime and found that the snacks and cocktails in the Thundi bar was a great midday lunch for us. We had a few spa treatments whilst we were there, we found the spa staff to be absolutely fantastic and very helpful with a good range of treatments available, this was certainly the best massage we’ve ever had and we have stayed at many resorts. Every evening we went to the Thundi bar which had excellent entertainment ranging from soft live music to 80’s, 90’s, noughties disco to traditional Maldivian dancing and video of the Maldives, the staff in the Thundi bar were absolutely superb and remembered our preferred drinks every day and our room number. We found Younisa to be excellent at cocktails, always friendly, smiling and nothing was too much trouble, sorry I can’t remember the rest of the bar staffs names as every waiter was amazing. We were highly impressed by the level of service at Veligandu, everywhere you went on the island every member of staff always said hello, how are you. We would thoroughly recommend Veligandu and will be returning next year.

We booked 10 nights at the over water Villa and the view from our deck is magnificent! The Jacuzzi is a great bonus too which overlooks the sea. Very nice designed and good layout throughout the whole island, you can feel the peace and relaxation from nature. Marine life is great we see lots of fishes, sharks, even manta swimming through the water villas. Great diving and snorkeling experience as the house reefs are full of lives, very professional and patient instructors will help you all the way. Very good food and great selection for the buffer! Staffs are all welcoming and truly make you feel at home!
