Perfect place for couple!
Veligandu is the best place for relaxing! Beautiful place with good people.. We arrived Male at 12pm, and cause ght Sea Plane to Veligandu resort which arranged by the resort at airport. Very easy, when you passed customs and collected your luggages, just go to counter no 18 (Veligandu Resort) at exit. They will arrange your luggages to your resort room, and seaplane to the resort. Be aware, you only can bring 20kg of check in luggage & bulky hand carry per person, otherwise they charged about US$5 a kg for extra. Also, choose All Inclusive, so it includes breakfast, lunch, dinner with drinks (including beers), other you will pay $5 for a can of soft drink. The food is fantastic! All workerd are very friendly, and not annoying. The beach is super clear and the resort itself is very clean!. We were getting a surprise free champagne, birthday cake & flowers on bed for my fiance birthday! Thank you so much for the hospitality! We will be back for sure!!!

Fantastic resort, serene and relaxing
From the time we touch down on Veligandu resort till the time we left, everything went perfectly, hassle free and relax trip. Stayed at the water jacuzzi villa, room is big and well equipped, able to watch sunrise in the morning. Food is fabulous and there were complimentary snorkeling and wind surfing lessons, plus sunset cruise to watch Dolphins, in the all inclusive package. Island is not big but exclusive. Staff were sincere and genuine in their approach. Hope to visit again!!
