How to Get There
First time I have written a review on TripAdvisor but this place deserves one. Outstanding from arrival to departure. We will 100% return. Food, Service , Room were all amazing. This place is paradise. Congrats to the Veligandu team for making it so special.
We had an amazing time at Veligandu to celebrate my partners birthday. We are independent travellers who write a travel blog, so we do not usually stay at luxury resorts, but we decided to experience the Maldives at its best, even just for 2 days. We were not disappointed. A personalised birthday cake and champagne were provided on Akhona’s birthday, and we had an amazing sunset boat trip to see over 50 dolphins as well. Even if you are travelling on a budget, spoil yourself for a few days at Veligandu as part of your Maldives experience.
We stayed as a couple for our wedding anniversary in late June /early July for 5 nights. The resort was beautiful & very well maintained. Food was good quality & with good variety & the waiter staff were friendly & attentive.
We stayed in a Jacuzzi Water Villa on the sunset side which was the windier side of the island but the breeze was welcomed.
The snorkeling was excellent with loads of marine life & we saw lots of reef sharks & turtles. Unfortunately the coral is very bleached as it is throughout the Maldives though. We found the water clearer on the west side of the island but choppier because of the wind & so did most of our snorkeling on the east. You have to venture out to the reef where it drops away into the deep to see the best array of fish.
We did the sunset dolphin cruise & saw many dolphins which was a sight to behold as they were leaping out of the water. We also did the Island Picnic & as it was only 2 of us it was essentially a private snorkeling tour to 3 different snorkeling locations. Our guide Ahmed was brilliant with eagle eyes to spot turtles, a moray eel amongst others & was very knowledgeable.
We learned from the staff that the resort takes good care of them & many of them have worked there for over 10 yrs. It certainly shows as most of them appeared genuinely happy.
We did a couples massage which was pricey but great & the masseurs were professional & friendly.
Except for rain at night the first evening we arrived, we had pristine weather for the remainder of our stay.
We were very happy with our stay & hope to return!
I went for my honeymoon trip, and the reception was amazing! Everybody so helpful and kind! There was a great variety of food and drinks, many options of recreation. Everything was perfect! I would definitely come back! It’s expensive, but worth it.
This was our first visit to Veligandu and it won't be our last. It was amazing. So many beautiful spots, the reefs were fantastic we alternated each side for snorkeling with mantra, eagle and sting rays. The food was excellent and the romantic seafood dinner for two on the beach for my birthday was unforgettable with the most amazing lobster and prawns! The bbq beach trip with the snorkling and lagoon very special too. Thanks to all the staff that did everything they could to make the stay memorable. We don't normally do repeat resorts but we definitely are returning here. Fantastic
