We had a wonderful vacation on Veligandu Island. The food is excellent and everybody is friendly. The island itself out of this world. The house reef is beatiful with a lot of small sharks and turtles.

The service is excellent. Plus the amazing sunset cruise with the dolphins and night fishing. The sea water was so clear that we could spot reef sharks and sting ray just from the surface without going down into the sea. Definitely will return to this paradise island.

Beautiful and friendly island. Though it's small, it provides abundant activities, which makes the holiday relaxing and interesting. Walk is the main tool to reach everywhere on the island. 15min walk from the farthest villa to the buffet restaurant. No bad! Water Jacuzzi Villa is very comfortable. Remember to set the desired temperature early due it takes a long time...

For our honeymoon we splurged on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Maldives. Veligandu did not disappoint. The overwater jacuzzi villa was well appointed, great minibar, plenty of space. We loved being able to snorkel right off our deck and the reef is so close that you see so many things right away. The staff is welcoming and so friendly. You...

My experience was unforgettable, the food need to be little improvement but the resort itself was amazing and the atmosphere of the island was like you are in haven. In addition, the cost was little expensive.
