Its hard to know where to start, this was such a wonderful holiday to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and totally exceeded our expectations. We booked through Thomson Worldwide after doing lots of research into different islands settling on Vilamendhoo largely based on such positive reviews. We flew with Emirates which went smoothly and waited less than an hour for...

What can I say amazing. We had a Beach Villa on the north side of the Island. It was all of 20 steps to the sea. Villa was very comfortable and was kept very clean by our Room Cleaner. The snorkelling was wonderful and like other reviews we picked this island for the house reef which did not disappoint. Even...

This was our third holiday to the Maldives and we picked Vilamendhoo primarily for the snorkeling. We booked a Jacuzzi Beach villa on the all inclusive package but were upgraded to a Jacuzzi Water Villa for two nights. The rooms in both villas were to a very high standard. They were both spacious, well set out and the open bathroom...

I visited with a friend who had the water villa and I had a garden room, which turned out to be a good combination because we could swim off both the beach and the steps to the villa, one at each end of the island. The beach in front of the villas sort of belongs to the occupants so you...

This hotel is overall nice. The house reef is great, and so is the spa. Gym is fine and we liked the tennis courts. The service is good but very formal. Usually in the Maldives, the staff are extra nice and for example kind to the children but we did not experience that here. And we could not get help...
