Mumbai, India2 contributions
We booked Velagandu on the last week of November. We booked after we had seen extremely good reviews in booking.com and Tripadvisor and since it was our Anniversary and also my baby first trip to Maldives we wanted everything to be of high quality. First let’s talk about the rooms - I am not at all certain how are they rated as five start, quality of the rooms are extremely bad, they are in really bad shape and needs immediate renovation. The bed was not at all comfortable, the topper on the bed was of no use. Clearly it was overused and should have been replaced few years back. The kid bed was extremely uncomfortable, pillows were not even goose down and so it was quite hard for my baby. - Secondly food , it was so bad and the options in all inclusive was so limited that we were totally amazed. There wasn’t a simple meal for our entire 3 nights and 4 days where we ate something which we can remember. Options were so limited in the buffet. - thirdly the staff, most of them are non cooperative, they did not even change our bed linen. I was travelling with a baby and it is out of question to not get the sheets changed. Well they did not care to ask if it should be changed or not. - lastly, I asked for a small favour, well it’s fine if they are not able to entertain at least they can revert my query. There was a complimentary photograph, means a print out of a single pic would be given to you. I requested them to give me the soft copy of the pic as that was the only pic of us together in the entire trip as my husband is camera shy so he wouldn’t get click. But they did not care to even respond to the repeated messages I have been sending. Where I see they keep re sharing the stories and posts from people in “Europe” here again they were being racist. Which anyway I had noticed throughout my entire stay. Their behaviour toward white people were different then us. Overall my Maldives trip wasn’t as expected at all. We regret booking Velagandu and will not recommend them to anyone ever.!

I can easily say that Veligandu exceeded our expectations! The snorkelling areas, the food, the excursions, the bars… everything was perfect! One thing I cannot mention enough is the service. The staff was EXCEPTIONAL, every single one of them!! Most hardworking, positive, kind, helpful and always smiling people we have ever seen! Our jacuzzi water villa was always nice and clean thanks to our room keeper. The food at Dhonveli restaurant was great and there was a lot of variety so you won’t get bored easily! We enjoyed our stay so much. Thank you Veligandu team for this dream holiday!

It’s not often I give 5 stars to a resort but this one definitely deserves it. We stayed in a sunset jacuzzi water villa for our honeymoon and it did not disappoint. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and was cleaned twice daily with turn down in the evening. The resort itself is stunning and well maintained, and we really enjoyed not wearing any shoes for a week! You have an island host on arrival who you communicate with via WhatsApp. They literally do everything for you, book excursions, book your dining, answer any questions you may have - they were amazing! In fact all the staff on this island are amazing. Everyone says hello, you never have to wait long for a drink and the attention to detail is outstanding. The food is the best I’ve eaten at an all inclusive. There was so much variety and the flavours were incredible. I’m vegetarian so I always worry there won’t be much choice for me but there was plenty and there multiple choices every night. Take a snorkel with you (or you can rent one at the dive centre) they have a house reef and there’s so much marine life including stingrays and reef sharks! It’s such an experience. I cannot recommend this island enough and I can see why so many people come back. We had the most magical honeymoon and will definitely return in the future!

Our second visit to Veligandu…We prefer small resorts in the Maldives and this was our 2nd visit to Veligandu. We were really made to feel welcome ….beautiful message on our bed ..WELCOME HOME..fizz on ice in our jacuzzi water villa .Many snorkel hours straight off our step short swim onto the reef , although corals are suffering from rise in sea temperature the reef does not disappoint…one side is always calmer …every swim there were sharks ,turtles and even eagle rays .You can walk around the island in 10/15 mins ..food super fresh and varied ..grilled fish daily and always plenty’s of vegetarian dishes .Cocktails are really good too …nothing is too much trouble..great team of staff

Vienna, Austria
dear community. I've been afraid of the sea for years. As a young child, I witnessed a shark attack and saw what the aftermath was. The diving instructors Sharaf and Rabie gave me confidence and joy in learning the Open Water Diver license. Sharaf took a lot of time for me and gave me the courage to do it. At the same time, I had so many great experiences on the first dive that motivated me to continue. Sharaf showed me that you can also have fun underwater. After 3 days of diving and learning theory, thanks to Sharaf's efforts, I successfully received my diving license. Most recently, Rabie gave me the opportunity to make the final dive decision. I chose the Manta Point. That was the greatest experience for me. 4 wonderful manta rays that elegantly hovered almost 20 cm of the head above us. I can only recommend everyone, put your courage and curiosity before your fear, it pays to enjoy the most beautiful underwater experiences. Sharaf and Rabie's team are great, friendly and super nice. You feel very safe with you. If you have any questions, everyone is there for you. Every teacher was happy with me and congratulated me. Start your underwater experience with a great team full of joy and safety. Have fun exploring and enjoying the underwater world. Greetings to the entire team Jasmin

This was simply the best holiday we have ever experienced. The resort, food, and island team were simply amazing. The house reef was stunning to snorkel in. The boat excursions to wonder rock and dolphin watching were out of this world. There is simply nothing negative that we can say about this result. Thank you for such a wonderful holiday. We can be quite difficult to impress however this resort went beyond all our expectations!

Booked Veligandu for my 50th bday. Was beyond pleased with the location, food, service and accommodations. It rained some, but mostly overnight. Most days were overcast with some sun. Highly recommended and I will definitely return.
