Room Choice

I will be staying in a beach villa in early February and would prefer the shady side of the island so I have a place to escape the intense sun.Is the shady side also the windy side? I just want to put in my request as to which side of the island I would like even though I know Vilamendhoo will not gaurentee the request.

Thanks in advance for any information.

You will have a porch on your BV which has some welcome shade , you will also have palm trees dotted around on the beach out side of the BV so you can always find somwere shady to sit.

We visited Vilamendhoo mid Feb last year and didn't get much breeze .

Please feel free to read our review on Vilamendhoo, it will get you in the mood :-)

Enjoy Vilamendhoo,, lucky you

The windy side during the northeast monsoon season in Feb will be along BV 132 to 196. Plenty of shade as some villas are set back a bit. We stayed in villa 175 right next to the double palms. If a view of a sunset is important then you want to picking BV 227 to 241 at this time of year but will feel much hotter.
