Very friendly staffs and delicious foods with marvelous scenery. Quality to Price ratio is excellent. Island is not too big to explore and a lot of friendly animal, too, such as dragon, birds, flying fox and etc... Excursion programs are rich enough to choose. Whale shark excursion is very much recommendable.

My partner and I spent an absolutely amazing time at Vilamendhoo Island. Everything was outstanding! The island itself is super nice, big enough for a long walk on the beach around the island or through the tropical jungle! Our water villa was very nice and comfortable. I would particularly like to mention that Mr Thasleem and Manik from the water villa restaurant were so kind and took really great care of us. Thasleem was attentive and extra carry for us. So nice! The dive center that is managed by Euro Divers is really amazing! The staff there is welcoming and very professional. Special thanks to AJ the guest relation lady, she was welcoming and gave great advices on the dive sites! The dive instructors are very professional especially Pierre! I really enjoyed diving with him. He spots everything and is very attentive to the divers safety. Was such a pleasure to be on this island with great positive vibes from all the staff. The reef is also beautiful, plenty to see while. snorkeling. We'd also like to give warm thanks to Aleksandra and Fhareen for they assistance during our stay! We are planning to come back for at leats a full month or more very soon!

A pretty island with exceptionally kind and helpful staff. Conveniently located within boat ride from the whale sharks and mantas. The house reef is recovering and provides good conditions for snorkeling - a lot of marine life, not much current, large territory. The coral is recovering and new spots with colorful coral are appearing, although there are still large areas of damaged coral. Tips: * Snorkel on both sides - the north and south sides provide different experiences. * Go for the Ocean Discovery excursion * Dive center - manta excursion is good, very high chance to experience mantas, whale sharks excursion - the chance to see whale sharks is low, better go for a snorkeling excursion * If you need relatively good internet - get a local sim card

Dear dkostov Thank you very much for taking your time to write this review in regards of your snorkeling / dive vacation with us at Vilamendhoo. I am pleased to see that you fully enjoyed our offers and services provided. Snorkeling and diving is what we stand for and great to see you enjoyed it that much. Being that close to the Manta and Whale Shark point as well as the ability to see them all year around makes it very special indeed. The Ocean Discovery is our best option to meet and swim with this magnificent sea animals offering a comfortable day out at sea where you get life long memories.

It was our first experience with Maldives and the choice of island was right. It is neither small nor big. There are beautiful coral reefs very close to beach, a lot of greenery, accommodation is perfect, meals in the restaurant were very tasty and unforgattable. Topic dinners were great and you could always choose from so many possibilities. We tried an aromatherapy massage in spa, vila snorkeling boat trip for mantas, turtles and whale shark (2/3 check) and scuba diving. Each of this activities was organized very well and I would recommend them. We stayed in the north-east part of the island and it was ok. We had a lot ot privacy and it was really calm there. It is a little bit further to the reef but you can enjoy calmer side of the coast. On the other side there are jetties. The west part of the island is reserved for adults only. We stayed for one week and it was a minimum. We will remember this perfect holiday in paradise for a long time. Thank you!

We are just coming back from a one week holiday in the resort - the entire family is diving. The Euro-divers staff is very friendly, experienced, and will bring you to great diving sites. Diving with mantas will stay in the kids’ memories for long...and in mine too !
