Enjoyed the short stay. Great memories

Water villa is superb, food is good, nice beach
Enjoyed the stay. It was fun except once you enter the island you are cut off from the rest of the world. No free wifi and cannot use mobile phone.

A lovely hotel with great value for money

1. No wifi in the rooms 2. Great gardens 3.seaplane transfers
My stay was as expected. The only issue is to know that transport to vehlidhu from male is by seaplane and I had to pay for excess luggage just like any other local flight. So have some money on you at all times. The hotel staff were good and the good was really nice. Water sports however where not much as majority of them where sports for experienced people like sailing and water skiing.

quite comfortable stay

Hospitable staff,
It was a nice and comfortable stay, the staff especially the GM- Uday is a great gut and manages things quite well. He took good care from the time we booked till the time we flew out of the resort. One thing that cane be added is internet in the resort...other wise a lovely maintained resort

Great place - just what we were looking for!

Restaurant - especially dinner selection, house reef, manta safari
Excellent service, excellent food, quite windy sometimes (on the side of the water bungalows), house keeper in water bungalow VERY tip-oriented - not very friendly, generally beautiful location and views, and fine marine life.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Manta safari highly recommended

Not true Maldives

This was not our first time in Maldives and after reading various positive reviews of Velidhu we expected it to be as good as previous visits. Unfortunately it was not. Good food; overcrowded island (on the beach you will feel like in Turkey or Egypt in big hotel); you would not want to sit on the terrace as they are facing path where people are walking all the time; interior or the bungalow is terrible and screaming for renovation; snorkeling is slightly below average.

Ken M. Couples United States of America, January 26, 2012
a good location but needs renovation

good snorkeling along reef and fantastic swimming with manta rays. Food was good and drink prices were reasonable.
Bungalows along the windward side of the island ()had small beaches and less privacy than on the windward side (). The water bungalows were large. Select odd numbers for best sun exposure on your deck.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: go to the manta ray site for snorkeling with them. Arrange for a small boat from the sport center for only $5 more that the 22 person excursion from the reception.

Affordable paradise

I thought this was one of islands with the more affordably priced water villas around. At approx. USD500 a couple for half board, I thought it wasn't so bad. My villa was the one furthest out at sea. My ritual at night is to sit at the balcony to star gaze before going into the villa to view the fishes swimming under the living area.
Hotel Feature Tip: Not much activities to do - no snorkelling trips, no island hopping, but I was happy with the house reef n the diving trips I went for.

Great Service! Great Resort! Excellent Staff!

The water villa views, the resort's very own reef, great staff and excellent food!
We stayed in Velidhu for 5 days with our two boys and it was absolutely phenomenal! Our water villa was gorgeous and the reef underneath had tons of fish schools and various kinds of beautiful fishes. The service and staff was extremely friendly and the food was fabulous. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the Manta Ray and Dolphin Safari -- it was breathtakingly beautiful! The beaches was gorgeous and awfully clear and clean.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Velidhu has pretty much everything to offer -- from manta rays to dolphins to catching a glimpse of sting rays and reef sharks! The glass floor in the water villa is extremely entertaining. We could sit there with a cup of tea and watch fishes play at night! Swimming with the Manta Rays was an exciting experience - not to be missed!
