Everything here was just great: sea, swimmingpool area, beaches, resort area, villas, food and the most attentive, helpful people working there. We took a boat trip to see doplhines, did snorkling, relaxed.

This was my first time to the Maldives and we cant wait to go back. We had the pleasure of being located in Water Villa on the sunrise side, we loved being able to enter the water directly from our villa and spend as much time snorkelling as we wanted. The accommodation itself was very spacious and the decor tied...

If you are looking at Trip Advisor wondering whether to book Veligandu for the first time - just do it. If you have been to Veli before and are browsing other islands as you don't want to ruin any memories - just book Veli. We recently returned from a second memorable visit to Veligandu and it will not be our...

This was our first visit to Veligandu and fifth to the Maldives. We stayed in a Jacuzzi water villa which was amazing. Large room, deck straight into the sea with a large bathroom and outside Jacuzzi, which we used frequently. Loved the island right from the start, a good size, easy to get around but large enough not to keep...

Our second trip to Veligandu, and we were not disappointed, it was just like coming home. We soon got into the swing of island life, relaxing on the deck, enjoying the fish and rays swimming around and finally visiting the restaurant.
