Third trip to the Maldives and this has been the best. As a whole, the holiday was just perfect from the start. BA flights on time and the shuttle time from Male to Vilamendhoo was very quick. Nothing out of place thanks to Cosmos and the Islands team at Crown Tours. This is one of the smallest island we have...

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon and I cannot rate it highly enough. I would go back tomorrow if I could and we are thinking of returning for our first anniversary.

We have stayed here during June which theoretically is in the rainy season. But we enjoyed 8 sunny days and only on our departure day, rain was cooling the island.
