Island amazing, but food and service can be better

Posted Oct 22, 2013 on Hotels.com
The island was amazing with soft white sand and beautiful water. Food variety was ok, but day-to-day, the flavor was rather similar and just average. Waiters were over-eagered to clear dishes, extending their arms over my wife's plate while she was still eating. They also have a lack of activity for rainy days.

Veligandu Honeymoon

Posted Sep 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
Veligandu is just as it looks in the photos!! Beautiful! Contact with the hotel prior to our trip was prompt and they arranged the seaplane details for us. We stayed for 8 days on our honeymoon in Sept. It was low season so the island did not feel crowded and we felt very remote. We enjoyed all the "extras" with booking here - free welcome massage, fruit basket, decorated bed, dolphin cruise, local island trip, nightly entertainment, and use of water equipment. Snorkeling was also good right off the island. Staff is friendly and helpful. Food is good and isn't too repetitive. Drinks were pretty standard. We had a sunset water villa and loved the deck and jacuzzi. Water is rougher on this side, but we still loved our villa. Only had two issues while we were there. 1. I had to call for an iron and they sent me a damaged one (it actually had "Damaged" written on the side) and it ended up ruining a piece of clothing and I had to call for another one. 2. We had a huge cockroach in our bed one night. Ick. Apparently it's common as we called for help and no one came for like 30 minutes and didn't really seem to care. We ended up being able to take care of it ourselves. We did find out (too late) that they leave a can of spray in your room for things like this. Overall, we really enjoyed our trip. Veligandu had everything we wanted and is priced appropriately. We wanted an exotic getaway where we could relax with a beautiful atmosphere - and that's exactly what we got.

Great Honeymoon Spot

Posted Aug 5, 2013
Location: Relax... a LOT of relaxing.
To go from NY via Istanbul, it took an exhausting 30+ hours door-to-door to get to Veligandu. When we woke up the next morning with the ocean as our view, all we could think was... it was well worth it. The hotel is fantastic! Room was large and clean. The food is great! Chef does a great job with selections and variety. It would be nice if they could keep the hot food warmer, but you'll get over it. The island is well kept and all the staff are extremely friendly. I was being particularly difficult with one of the staff members and she was extremely gracious and continued to greet me with nothing but courtesy - a true professional. My wife and I would probably go to another place in the future because there are so many different islands in the Maldives and we would love to see some others... BUT, with my full endorsement I would highly recommend this hotel/island to any friends because I knew they would have an amazing time.

Excellent place for vacation

Posted Aug 4, 2013
Cons: wifi is too bad, and expensive
My girl friend and I went there this July, and stayed there for 7 nights. Everything is perfect, the food is especially excellent!!! The only thing not worth the money is WIFI... $20/day, since my girlfriend needed to check emails everyday, so finally I paid about $150 for WIFI, which actually is very slow...

Excellent Vacation Stay!!!

Posted Jul 16, 2013
Pros: I loved the jaquzzi ocean bungalow. It has a very secluded feel for a romantic getaway. Just perfect.
Location: Windsurfing, SCUBA, snorkling, kayaking, and more
Really enjoyed my experience at Veligandu Resort! The staff was very friendly and courteous - I will definitley stay here again and highly recommend it to others. If you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing holiday Veligandu is the place to go; gorgeous ocean views and a wonderful spa with a wide range of treatments. We enjoyed the all inclusive package, which comes with breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and several different trips and group lessons in snorkling and windsurfing as part of the package. They have a restaraunt separate from the all inclusive buffet but to be honest we never bothered to get a reservation; the buffet was always excellent with fresh food made to order.

This is a great resort. The food, the service, the rooms are excellent. I spent 6 days there and my wife and I had a blast. This s one of the best vacation that we've had. It was a long flight from the USA but it was worth it.

Great resort

Posted Jun 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here in May 2013. This is a great resort. We did All Inclusive Plus which was well worth it if you enjoy a drink. Everything lived up to expectations, the snorkelling was amazing, the food was awesome. A really polished hotel.
