    We stayed on our Honeymoon in a water villa and can say that this is one of the best islands in the maldives, being able to step straight into the water from your villa and waking up to the indian ocean views are just incredible.

    The food was the best I've experienced anywhere, the variation was amazing and so was the quality for all 3 meals of the day. The snorkeling is very good and so are the extras on the island such as the bar and the excursions. The service was also really good.

    The only negatives are really minor, the eating times are a little shorter than other islands, there were occasionally some ants near the food, however this is inevitable on a tropical island and finally we didn't find the spa great, the massages were rough and they were really pushing the hard sell.

    Overall a great island for a couples, everything you'd need.

    Room Tip: Water Villa is a must, Jacuzzi villa not really required.

    Veligandu really is a beautiful island. It actually took us a couple of days to get used to the amazing scenery, the fact that there is no noise (all you hear is the sound of the sea and the gentle rustling of palm trees) and the sense of peace and tranquility.

    We had a water villa with jacuzzi on the east side and it was lovely. Spacious and clean with a good bathroom, private sunbathing area and amazing views. We had glorious sunshine hitting our deck until about 4pm. The food is very very good with plenty of options including veggie alternatives. The staff are friendly warm and welcoming. It's like walking into a postcard, just gorgeous.

    It is hard to pick fault with Veligandu but if I were pressed to make improvements I would start with the all inclusive package. You have to pay for the drinks and nibbles in the minibar in your room and they are expensive. We upgraded to the "all inclusive plus" but this only gets you 4 beers, some soft drinks and extra water. In a luxury resort which costs thousands, the cashews should be included too. However, I understand that they are soon to change their packages to bring them in line with the ultra all inclusive model. My only other gripe is that the bed was a little hard.

    These little things aside, we had an fabulous time and could not recommend it more. We will definitely be returning soon.

    By all means, book this resort because you won't regret it, especially if you choose a water villa. I strongly recommend it! The island is extremely beautiful, the beach is a paradise, the colour of the water is idyllic, the restaurant is flawless, the bar is great, the pool is beautiful, the rooms are superb.
    ----
    Some practical advices:
    (1) No shoes/sandals are needed. I went everywhere, even to the restaurant, in my bare feet.
    (2) Do not forget to book the sunset excursion, you will see lots of dolphins.
    (3) At dinner time, if you want to stay outside, be there early. Everyone tries to stay outside, which is more romantic.
    (4) There are sharks in the shallow waters but they are not dangerous. You can swim at ease. Just do not go to the deep waters, which are dark blue instead of bright blue.
    (5) Do not worry about mosquitoes, they virtually do not exist.
    (6) Buy a digital water-proof camera before going there. You will take great pictures while snorkelling.
    ----
    The only thing I disliked: The pool is not deep, and the beach has reefs, which means that you cannot really "jump" into the water. But who cares? Really, this resort has no major defects.

    Room Tip: Just book a water villa or a jacuzzi water villa, preferably on the sunrise side.

    This was by far the best holiday I have ever had. 7 days was not long enough in paradise. Even though we did have a storm it did not affect the holiday. The food is the best I have ever had and sometimes wished they did repeat the menu through the week!! The staff are brilliant and always say hello and always have big smiles on there faces even at the end of the day, and they work so hard to keep you happy. If you are looking for a fantastic holiday in paradise then this is the place for you. If you can afford to go then book up you will not be disappointed.
