Very excellent, 6 star plus
Extremely comfortable. Food and services are great. The only regret is that we found that they offer promotion that 6 nights have free seaplane flight. Found too late!

excellent setting, friendly staff, ample food and beverage
should pre-inform guest about Monday closure of most activities and night live music. end of each buffet session is kind of 'rush' and 'bothered' by the waiter to leave quickly. suggestion: ring bell to signify last 5 mins, follow by leaving the dessert and fruits last when start clearing food

Value for money
The overall service is awesome. My husband and i enjoyed a lot there. Advice for the tourists : AIP is a very good choice , which means you don't need to worry about the price , a lot of drinks and three meals are included. All the staff there are very friendly and warm hearted , everything left me an excellent impression. But one thing to suggest that the wifi there is not that strong, but having the scenery there , who cates about the wifi?

Awesome resort, awesome foods & awesome staffs!
I had the best holiday in my life at Veligandu island resort and spa. The resort staffs are polite and very helpful. Specially thanks to our hotel manager Mr Hameed, the manager and the staffs of Dhonveli Restaurant. Thanks for the room decoration and the complimentary birthday cake! The overall quality of services is consistently high standards. A big thank you for all the staffs in Veligandu! You make our stay wonderful. Will definitely come back in future!

Picture perfect
We never got used to how beautiful this place was. Apart from the view, the marine life was extraordinary. A few feet from where we lived, I swam with manta rays, saw a shark and a unicorn fish, and marveled at so many others (I mean, where else can you see a heron, a manta ray, turtles, a moray eel, and so many fish at a jetty?). The food is fresh and delicious. The internet is erratic and generally unsatisfactory, but in a place like Veligandu, who cares? We agree that the All-Inclusive package is worth it (although the drinks are a distant second to the food). We had several days, but never had time to do all that we wanted. Perfect reason to return.

Great location and friendly staffs
The island is a great choice for couples that enjoy their privacy and want to spend time on the beach. Even though it was almost fully booked it never felt crowded. There are plenty of activities (snorkling, diving, windsurfing, jetski, etc.) for reasonable prices. The buffet offers a decent variety of different cuisines and meals at an exceptionally good quality. Besides there is a second restaurant that you can book in advance for private occasions like a private beach bbq. I'd recommend taking a water villa instead of the beach villas. Overall we enjoyed our time and can highly recommend the resort.
