The ideal combination for the perfect vacation”
The combination of accomodation, food, snorkeling, diving, beach and quality of service make Veligandu a perfect solution for a dream tropical holiday. It is really the Maldivian getaway that everybody fantasizes about. We have had a great time, would recommend it to anyone and will do our best to return!
Dear Sergio, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! We are so thrilled to read such awesome descriptions about our island! Thank you kindly for taking time to share your story of perfect holiday. It gives us a great sense of accomplishment to know that you truly had a dream holiday with us. And of cause we all look forward to have you back! Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Excellent service with very helpful staff; the most incredible buffet spread that never disappointed (how they make such amazing desserts on an island in the middle of nowhere is crazy!); beautiful clear water; stunning sunset view from the jacuzzi; quiet and peaceful...we're ruined for life after such a great stay.
Dear Paul, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! We are really appreciative of your vote of confidence to tell your fellow agoda.com members that your stay at Veligandu was paradise-like and quiet and peaceful …and therefore well worth it! As much as you had enjoyed every second of being here, we too enjoyed every second that you were with us. We look forward to seeing you again! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
All that the Maldives is supposed to be....and more.”
Stunning location, stunning views, beautiful villas, excellent food (even being vegetarian) and great staff. Nothing really to fault this resort, the snorkelling is amazing around the reefs, the beaches are pure clean white sand, extremely photogenic and the short trips to see the Dolphins and Turtles are definitely worth taking the time to do. We stayed in a jacuzzi villa for 4 nights, amazing nights sleep with the wind coming off the sea and stunning sunrise and sunsets if you get the right villa. My only constructive feedback would be in regards to the AC noise. We did not use AC for the whole stay, the wind and ceiling fans are more than enough to keep you cool and of course much more environmentally friendly. However if the villa next to you is using their AC, the noise spoils the beautiful peace you get on your balcony/deck. In all honesty they should ban the use of morons using the AC, it is just not required and in a green resort its disappointing some people still use.
Dear James, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Wow such wonderful descriptions! Feels like you were in a dream?! Did you pinch yourself ? Thank you kindly for your kind words and appreciation. Happy you being vegetation treated yourself with plenty of delicious veggie options available at the restaurant. Thank you for sharing you constructive feedback in regards to the AC noise. Your suggestions are valuable and we will look into possible improvements. We do agree the noise ruins the tranquility and serenity and are truly sorry that you encountered such inconvenience. Please do stay in touch and drop us a quick note when you are planning your return visit. Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Beautiful & Relaxing”
We had a wonderful stay at this resort. The staff were very friendly and always smiling. Staff at the main bar were a bit slow, but it was okay. There is a large selection of food to meet everyone’s tastebuds! Our water villa was cleaned frequently and it was very quiet. The shower was never really cold, so that was disappointing after sweating all day. Overall, it was very pleasant stay.
Dear Awirut, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for your comments about your stay at Veligandu. Indeed the island is truly beautiful and relaxing as you said - this is one aspect that all our guests mention. Thank you for the comment you made about the service at the bar and having cold shower. Sorry if it caused you any inconvenience. We will definitely look into possible improvements. We appreciate that our efforts were recognized and in general you has a very pleasant stay. We look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
This is our 1st island resort stay in Maldives. We spent 4 days 3 nights here & indeed very nice island resort. We were arranged with Seaplane transport from Male to Veligandu & everything is in order and smooth. We managed to check in at around 11am with lunch provided. We joined the Sunset punch dolphin tour & it was fun & enjoyable. Besides, we also joined snorkeling tour & managed to see coral & fish. It wasn't easy for snorkeling as the wave is quite big as compared to our other visits. There are variety choice of foods/meals including vegetarian option. Highly recommend to opt for full board if you pay a visit to this resort. As for services, it was good during check in period that made you feels like VIP. The minus point is check out & you will be treated like normal 3* hotel to settle the bill with no more warm feeling as a guest. Overall, this is a very nice place to enjoy honeymoon. Our Water Jacuzzi Villa able to see Sun Rise & we spent our time at beach to see the Sunset.
Dear Gek, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Can’t thank you enough for your compliments and appreciation. Your highly regarded review about your time here is very much appreciated.

Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa

This is the first time we came to Maldives and we choose Veligandu as our accommodation because of all the good reviews. The stay is very very good and ways above our expectation. The staff are very friendly and they do treat you like a family. We stay in Jacuzzi Water Villa and we really enjoy the room, the view and all the facilities is very nice. Due to our departure flight is in late evening, the manager of the resort make a special arrangement for us to stay as late as possible before transferring us back to Airport and i wasn't expected this at all. Food are very delicious and this one of our important focus when we choosing the resort. Overall is very great and we hope we could come back again.

Excellent place with amazing staffs”
We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights at their Overwater Jacuzzi Villa and it was absolutely amazing. The all inclusive package was great as the mini bar was replaced every time we consumed the drinks/ snacks. The room is spacious and clean thanks to our villa boy (Mahmood) who was nothing but kind and approachable. The distance is quite a walk especially for those older and ordering at the Thundi Bar takes more or less 45 minutes, not advisable for those in a rush or have a seaplane/ boat to catch in a couple minutes. Food at the main restaurant was delicious and the staffs who served us (Hishaam and Zafhaan) surely made our stay even more memorable. I would recommend the place for those who need time away from the hustle and bustle of the city or simply a time to unwind and relax. As for the activities, the snorkelling session led by Gaasim was great as the reefs and marine life seem to be very much alive in this island and wind surfing offered in the resort is great.
Dear Consor, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Mahmood, Hishaam, Zafhaan, Gaasim, the rest of the team and I thank you for taking the time to for giving us such a highly regarded review about your time here. Sincerely, it brings us much joy to hear that our efforts are translated into a positive experience for all our guests. Your compliments and appreciation are very important to us! It will be our greatest pleasure to delight you during your next holiday with us! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Our stay was amazing! We went for my boyfriend birthday and they provide us complimentary bottle with chocolates plus cake after dinner!
Dear Laura, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Thank you very much for your lovely 10 star review of our resort.

Look forward to welcoming you back for another fabulous holiday with us! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Excellent as usual”
Thirteenth year visiting Veligandu, from the warm welcome to the reluctant exit we had a fabulous holiday. The holiday is made by the Management and their staff, from Fathuhulla to the gardeners they are all friendly welcoming and prepared to chat. It always feels like coming home, on top of this the food is first class - from the buffet to the a la carte, the location is brilliant, the accommodation excellent and the facilities are all first class. We will return next year.

Perfect no other words needed”
Everything is so well organised the staff are so helpful they are all a credit to Veligandu, every where is spotlessly clean the food is amazing and I would recommend the all inclusive package, and if possible a sunset view water villa having the Indian Ocean as your back garden is an amazing treat when you wake up. Spoil yourself you won’t regret it !!

Perfect location, perfect rooms & perfect services by all the staff. Staff are super friendly and helpful. We were made to feel special from the time we arrived until we left. My mum has difficulty walking and we had a wheelchair at our disposal during our stay. We took the all inclusive plus package and were never disappointed. Breakfast, lunch and dinner was always good with lots of varieties including vegetarian. Desserts were too many to chose from and so many types of breads as well. There was even champagne served during lunch and breakfast. The dolphin cruise is a must; including the nearby island excursion to Rasdhoo Island. The mini bar in the rooms were always replenished. A variety of teas and coffee. The drinks in Thundi Bar is an amazing way to appreciate the beauty of the island. Veligandu is the perfect island holiday for anyone. Highly recommend this place anytime of the year!

A beautiful resort with excellent service”
A beautiful resort with polite , friendly and helpful staff Room was spacious with a stunning sea view from jacuzzi bathtub , where we enjoyed our evening with warm bath and a glass of Champagne Food was nice and there is a 24-hour bar where you can have drinks and snacks even at late night We really appreciate the restaurant staff `s efforts put on my birthday dinner from decorating the table , making sure our food was okay , and singing me birthday song :) Bed was clean and comfortable The only downside was the villa kept shaking especially during heavy rain and strong wind at night But it`s still worth the visit

Heaven on Earth”
From the moment we got off the seaplane we were wowed. The beach was pristine, clear blue water everywhere. Makes us want to jump in everytime. The jacuzzi water villa we stayed in was superb, complete with amenities plus baby sharks and stingrays visit our villa each morning. Paradise is an understatement -- lots of instagrammable spots everywhere! We got the all inclusive package, one downside is that sadly we were not able to make the most of it, we were not able to do the Kuramathi excursion or avail of the photography session due to seaplane schedule which we were not informed in advance. The sunset cruise where we saw pods of dolphins made up for it though! Regretted that we did not stay longer, will definitely be back! :)
Dear Bechelle, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! We are wowed by your sweet review! Thank you very much for taking time and leaving such high rating. It is gratifying to note that you appreciated both facilities and stunning scenery, nature and sea life. I am so sad to know you could not enjoy all All-inclusive package benefits due to not informing you about seaplane transfer timing. Please accept my apology. I will look into your case to see what happened exactly so that we avoid this in the future, plus to see area where we need improvement. Thank you for sharing it with us. Happy to know that you did enjoy watching dolphins, I do agree that these stunning creatures are amazing! We hope to have you back soon …for longer stay…so that you could experience all the activities you wish to! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Cannot say enough wonderful things about this spectacular resort. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The island is beyond beautiful - truly a piece of paradise; the food is sensational; staff and management are outstanding; organisation and attention to detail can not be faulted. We could not have asked for a better stay and were made to feel like individuals at all times as opposed to 'just another guest'. Definitely recommend the All Inclusive Package which is excellent. I researched the Maldives extensively to find the 'right' resort to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We wanted something relatively small, intimate and idyllic. There were many exceptional and very modern resorts to choose from but we chose the Veligandu because it ticked all the boxes and we loved the fact it was more traditional in its style. We made the right choice and cannot wait to return in the future. A HUGE thank you from our hearts to Adam and his OUTSTANDING team.
Dear Carol, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! WOW such an awesome review! We can’t thank you enough for your compliments and appreciation. I will sure pass you kind words to Adam and our Team, they will be so happy and it will definitely bring smile on their faces. We sincerely value your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back again to our shores! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Great food, staff and peaceful resort!”
This is the 4th time we stayed at Veligandu and we really enjoyed staying here this time as well. We enjoyed food, drinking, kayaks, swimming, some of excursions,, everything during our 7 nights! Next time we return to Maldives, we will definitely choose Veligandu to stay. See you soon!

Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
5 days Honeymoon ”
We feel that we’ve got more than what we paid for. No amount of money can equate to the experience we’ve had in Veligandu. Veligandu, in our opinion is the pride of Maldives as they offer not just good food, amazing scenery, great accommodation, but they truly gave us a once in a lifetime experience that will be cherished in our whole lifetime. The only problem that we have right now is, Veligandu set our standards to high.. how can we enjoy the next resorts we plan to go to? We’ll definitely be back, and we’re considering to spend our wedding anniversary at Veligandu every year. Thank you very much and more power! Love, RJ Dacanay & Georgina Cortes-Dacanay
Dear RJ & Georgina, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Thank you so much for such gorgeous compliments and taking the time to write this beautiful review.

Meanwhile, we wish you a fantastic season ahead. We look forward to welcome you back! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
I like the environment and time in the resort”
We stayed for three nights on beach villa and water villa. Villas are good, clean and spacey. Money paid are worth. Recommend to join the sunset cruise, we saw lots of dolphins dancing around you. Food are also good with various choice. Buffet dinner, lunch and breakfast are good quality. Bar are also good.
Dear Lok, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! Thank you for your lovely comments and recommendations. We are glad that among all the resort ocean activities, you enjoyed dolphin cruise. It is truly mesmerizing to watch these stunning creatures. I will pass your compliments about food to our culinary team, they will be happy to know you appreciated their talent and efforts. We look forward to welcome you back for another fantastic holiday with us! Warm regards, Fathuhulla Ibrahim, General Manager, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Nice private resort, clean and great food ”
It was a great holiday experience and stay at Veligandu. Resort is clean with clear water for snorkeling and friendly staff to help you when you need. The water villa is nice and clean too, with twice daily housekeeping service. Even the Jacuzzi tub is clean. I opted for the full board package and food was nice and the spread was great. No regrets as it is hassle free and you can eat and drink all you want. There are various activities to join in the resort and the highlights will be dolphin cruise and hand line fishing. Went for jet ski and snorkeling out in the sea too and was great experience. I feel that resort should look into the prices for some of the excursions to make it more reasonable such as fishing trips.
Dear Eileen, Sunny greetings from Veligandu Island Resort & Spa! I would like to sincerely thank you for taking the time to write about your experience with us! It feels like you truly embraced our laidback lifestyle. We are happy to learn you appreciated our facilities and services. Thank you for sharing your opinion in regards to fishing trip pricing.
