The resort is very beautiful and clean. The entire staff on the island is amazing. That’s the only word I can think to describe them. They were all very friendly and helpful and made our stay excellent. I would recommend Veligandu resort to everyone and I hope to go back there in the future.

Hotel's Favourite
We came came here for our Honeymoon, and it was everything we could have ever hoped for! It is obvious from the moment you arrive to this resort island that you are in for a beautiful vacation. The resort makes you feel right at home from the start. You are encouraged to be relaxed by walking barefoot, and allowing the staff to literally handle anything for you. We found it very convenient to not even have to make phone calls or look for any staff when needing something, we simply messaged over WhatsApp. The hotels gardens, pools, and beaches are gorgeous. The food was delicious, and was filled with varieties, we felt no need to even visit the alternative restaurant. The waters were dazzlingly blue with pristine white sand beaches. The host we were assigned to was Rifau, he was so helpful and kind to answer any questions, or needs we had during our stay. The resort handled all the accommodations in regards to Covid testing for departure. Last but not least the Jacuzzi Bungalow Villa is a must during this stay!

What a beautiful place! The island is so perfect, small, quiet and beautiful. The staff is great! Everyone had a smile and was very helpful. The food is delicious and we loved our dinner at the beach for my husband's birthday. We stayed at a jacuzzi water villa, what an amazing experience it was to go down the stairs to that incredible warm and blue water. The snorkel was also great. We saw turtles and sharks and all types of fishes. We had an amazing vacation and we loved Veligandu so much! A special thank you to Mireia and all the staff. Hope to see you soon!

We stayed at Veligandu from the 5th to the 13th of October 2021. When we arrived we were upgraded to a jacuzzi Water Villa that was simply amazing with the the stairs to the lagoon being our favorite part. The staff was very friendly with Mireia, our Island Host, being very nice and professional. A mention also to Shahid that took care of the cleaning of our villa always with a smile on his face and Mita on the Bar also smiling and full of life. Overall this was an amazing experience, even more than we expected. We definitely recommend a stay here and we'll be going back as soon as possible.

Wonderful days I had. Staff is good & polite overall. Some exception will meet you everywhere. Vegetarian food can be more impressive and they have ability which prove, while providing food (very delicious) on maldivian night I think that was on 1rst or 2nd oct. Bar veg.menu can be more impressive with variety.
