I love this resort. Worth the 18 hr flight from Toronto. Seaplane transfer was hassle-free. I booked an over the water villa (with a hot tub with a view of the ocean), full board (3 meals at buffet), no alcohol or drinks (except for coffee and whatever juice they have at the time). Each mango juice costed me $4 US a pop. Items in mini bar not included. Items, like souvenirs, you buy get charged to the room. I loved the over the water villa. So private and there were stairs out to the water (low tide in the am, high in the pm). There were crabs all the time on the deck (one and a couple on the steps). They try to avoid you. Transformer was provided, AC, TV. Far walk but it's what you get if you want seclusion. Island is so small though (love it). Food at Dhonveli and wi-fi were great. I really only need those two things to be happy. I didn't see too much seafood, but I don't like those anyway. From your deck, you can snorkel and see plenty of different varities of fish. Saw a shark and a couple of sting rays from my deck. Staff is warm and helpful. I travelled on my own and felt really safe. I could leave my phone/wallet at my table with no concerns at Dhonveli. Resort-specific stuff: Bring your own plastic bag for wet clothes. Resort tries to be environmentally conscious so no plastic bags available. Don't bring shoes you don't want to get sand in. I had a really special experience and plan on going back next year but maybe in April instead of May.

Wow, we went here for our 30th anniversary and we were not disappointed! Veligandu is absolutely amazing. The word paradise is often over used, but it is a truly fitting description. Everything was perfect; the staff, the services, the amenities, the facilities, the food, the atmosphere and the romance. It is a picture right out of a travel magazine. We can not say enough good things. If you are reading this, don't hesitate, book today. I promise you will not regret it!

A fabulous resort what more could you ask for in a vacation! Overwater bungalow, fantastic reef full of fish and coral made for great snorkeling and scuba diving. Good food and drinks! This resort sets the standard for a great Maldives vacation. From the moment we landed the staff were so kind and helpful I have nothing but good things to say about Veligandu Island Resort.
