Awesome holidays!
The coral reefs was amazing! We enjoyed our stay in jacuzzi water villa for 4 nights, the view from our balcony was stunning. The food has much variety and there was different theme for dinner everyday. Overall, we felt warm with the good customer service and we will recommend Vilamendhoo to our friends.

Fantastic Maldives
Amazing place, just be aware everything has a price if you are not all inclusive. Diving is second to none, but very expensive. The staff are fantastic on the island and the layout really works well. The house reef is rightly legendary.

Best snorkelling resort
Snorkelling in Villamendhoo is best for me. You can feel to be in the aquarium. But I was disappointed at taste of buffet. It was not too bad, but don't expect good buffet.

Good service
But please do not put Asian people together in the restaurant. Sometime people come from the same country talk or share their experience too loudly. Very annoying for every time to have meals. We need to sit outside to avoid them...

But some activities are very popular, we can't book the activities like windsurfing and dive. And when we had breakfast, there are too many mosquitoes... Terrible
