Me and my wife visited Vilamendhoo at the start of May for 10 nights. I chose Vilamendhoo mainly due to it supposedly having a great reef, and the positive reviews it gets on here. Half of this island is what you in visage when you're day dreaming about the Maldives and counting down the days until you get there. The...

This was our fourth trip to Vilamendhoo island and unfortunately we were disappointed. It wasn't BAD...just not as good as it used to be. They were all little things but they all added up to make returning a big no. First of all the room. We arrived at 10:30 and always in the past we have been able to get...

For Americans, the Maldives represent a commitment to extensive travel (approximately 20 flight hours)--a trip that is literally halfway around the globe, but we found much value in that commitment. My lovely bride has had one travel wish since our marriage: to stay in an over-the-water bungalow. She searched far and wide to find a place to her liking, and...

My friend and I stayed at Vilamendhoo on 17-20 December 2016. We were traveling to Sri Lanka for the holidays and we wanted to do a side-trip to the Maldives since it’s a 60-minute flight from Colombo. My friend and I are from the States and we don't know many people who have been to the Maldives because it's quite...

We stayed at Vilamendhoo for the first 2 weeks of March. On arrival at Male airport we were met by a Hayes and Jarvis rep, who took us over to the seaplane check in desk.

Strap yourself in, this may be a long review. Arriving via Abu Dhabi, the only negative of our holiday was we waited for our seaplane transfer from 2:40pm until 5:15pm, arriving at Vilamendhoo as it went dusk, but met by the welcoming drums. It certainly is different arriving next to a platform in the middle of the sea before transferring...
