Review on Veligandu resort stay

Fulfillment of guest request, seaplane n transport arrangement, food variety
8.7
Staff was attentive and fulfill my request. We had an enjoyable stay there. Room was comfortable n spacious. The only lacking was wifi access should be available at most area and full board should include some common standard drinks. Overall stay was very good and exceed expectation.

A Beautiful & Relaxing Getaway!

1. Food/Dining - a very good variety of intercontinental dishes and very delicious. 2. Superb view/sunset at our watervilla 3. Seaplane transfer and good service from the staff
9.3
We were thrilled with the seaplane transfer with superb view!. Later, we were very warmly welcomed by the Veligandu's team, GM & Guest Services Manager. We were ushered/checked in personally by the Guest Services Manager, Kim Zurcher to our lovely water villa with a vast open seaview! Service is prompt and attentive. The sandbank is lovely. Overall, a very wonderful, memorable and romantic stay.
Chandrasekar V. Couples India, February 19, 2015
Awesome experience

Location of the villa, Staff response, Food, Sports activities are highlights
10
Everything was perfect and I can't complain about anything. I spent 6 days at the resort with Full board meals. Buffet meal was really good for the different nationals at the resort. I felt that the cost of the stay was high. But when I looked for other hotels, this Veligandu choice was really good with more water sports activities. Snorkeling, diving, jet skiing, wakeboarding are the activities that I love. Get lazy, eat well and play a lot. You will enjoy.

Andrew H. Couples Indonesia, February 6, 2015
Mediocre

Staff on water sports and di ing centre are really friendly and helpfull. Lots of activities to do there.
6.7
Did not use the spa, so It would be unfair to rate the spa. The only helpful staffs I find are those at the diving and water activities center. Others are just mediocre. Room is spacious, clean with very nice deck into the sea (water bungalow). And the AC did not blow directly over the bed which is a must for me! The negatives: the bed mattress felt lumpy and not comfy! I find that Hilton group has the most comfortable mattress for me. Also the food they served was just boring and some of them tasteless (it's just funny for a tropical sea resort to have their egg station and burger have better taste than seafood or meat station)? Honestly the food was well below of what I expect from a 4star plus resort!

A dream vacation

Luxury, Clean, and Staff
10
Like many people, I compared with other hotels and decided on Veligandu based on other reviews. I was not disappointed. It was clean, great view, friendly staff, and worth the money. Like others, it is expensive but I highly recommend. I booked full board on the water and it was great. I think on the beach one is fine too. Water sports was great and food was 4 to 5 stars. We had a little issue with Scuba Diver staff's attitude but after talking to the manager, she compensated with apologizes and a free wine. Other water sports staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I recommend.
