We visited Veligandu Island Resport & Spa for our honeymoon. So far, we have travelled many places, but Veligandu was the best experience so far. The Island has a wonderful surrounding. We stayed in water villa with jacuzzi. The staff, cleanness, food, sunset excursions, spa, bars and rooms were excellent. It was one of the best decisions we have given and we plan to visit Veligandu every year ! Thanks for making our honeymoon unforgettable !

I was a little nervous having booked our trip based on Tripadvisor reviews and this being our 1st trip to the Maldives and a long awaited getaway without kids but I have no regrets. This was undoubtedly one of my best holidays. It was an absolute luxury escape.
From the Velighandu lounge at the airport, our seaplane trip, which was awesome, our entire stay including our room changeover and back to our return to the airport, everything moved smoothly and appeared to be thought of.

We stayed 4 nights in a beach villa which was awesome. A few metres on super soft sand to a turquoise ocean, like a private swimming pool. Swim out about 20 metres to a reef, although not perfectly healthy but still has fish playing around and we even encountered a turtle. Loungers and a hammock under the trees on the sand in front of the villa provide a shady spot to watch the ocean and the hermit crabs on the beach. The bathroom, partially outdoors, was prefect. Rain shower plus hand shower, double basin and a jacuzzi. Wifi was good and the TV worked - I didn't find reason to pay more attention to this as there was so much that needed to be enjoyed. The bed was super comfy and the room had everything one would require.

We then moved to the jacuzzi water villa on the other side of the island and I was again blown away. The beautiful shades of water straight from a heavenly bed which could be airconditioned or have stacking doors pulled back to experience the ocean breeze. Down the steps into the ocean was magical with tiny fish darting about like your own private show. A few meters away at the reef was like our own aquarium tank. Fish, of so many colours and varieties, starfish, sea cucumbers, sometimes a shark gliding along, minding his own business and again the old man of the sea, languidly feeding and rising to the surface for air.

I was initially a bit anxious about the jet ski and snorkel experience we booked with Imraan since I had not been on a jetski and the though of being in the ocean with no land in site somehow induced a degree of anxiety. It was however, stunning. The jetski ride was a thrill but the wonders down below was amazing. I felt quite safe as long as I had someone in sight. We saw more amazing varieties and colours of fish, 3 types of shark, eel, spotted a ray, turtle and then out of nowhere, a whale shark. Imraan was beside himself as was my husband. I did however feel some reservation at our unexpected meeting but it was incredible. I could see its large wide mouth and its spotted bulk metres away. Apparently a rare site so close to the island!

The food and service at Velighandu were unfaultable. We had variety, special requirements were catered for and we are definitely going to try making Maldivian fish curry the next time we get fresh tuna.

We did book a massage during our stay. The spa is beautiful and serene. Although my husband seemed happy with his massage, I felt that I would have liked a better quality massage for the price I payed.

Perhaps,we were fortunate in our ocean sightings and the quiet period in which we stayed but it was a perfect holiday.

Room tip: We loved both our sunrise beach villa and sunset overwater one.

Great trip. The trips we did were great, the staff were great and food was really good.

Only slight downside was the jacuzzi didn’t work 100% the temperature wouldn’t change regardless how long you left it on with the cover on. That’s why I gave the room an average score
