Veligandu Island Resort is located a scenic 15 minute seaplane flight from The Maldives’ international airport in the capital of Malé. It has a total of 81 rooms including 10 Water Villas, 10 Jacuzzi Beach Villas and 54 Jacuzzi Water Villas and I stayed in the last category. It had rainshower, nice natural products in the bathroom, an outdoor jacuzzi and a comfortable bed. Many of the mid-priced resorts in the Maldives don’t have internet in the room, but Veligandu has and its on a complimentary basis for all guests.
The service is always the most important thing and while The Maldives is one of the world’s most beautiful destinations, the service is hit and miss. Veligandu has very good service after Maldivian standards, but still far from the bests. I do however on the other hand believe Veligandu has some of the best value for money in The Maldives, especially in low season. They do a better job and experience than what I would expect for the price. The same can be said about the food. Great buffets at lunch and dinner and its worth to note I have eaten in many bad buffets in otherwise good Maldivian resorts.
Like in the other Maldivian resorts, Veligandu has lots of facilities and activities for all guests and can you won’t get bored, even if you book a three week vacation here. A highly enjoyable resort in The Maldives with some of the best value for money in the entire country.
My opinion: Great experience.
