The traditionally styled Veligandu Island Resort is surrounded by a lagoon with long stretches of white, sandy beach and is the only resort on the island of Veligandu. Apart from the thatched roof and the fine white sand, Veligandu offers real Maldivian charm, a high standard of services, friendly and experienced staff. It bubbles with an extra-ordinary elegance that is almost beyond compare.
Veligandu is located in the North Ari Atoll and is accessible by a scenic 20 minutes seaplane flight.
There are 3 room categories: most popular are the Jacuzzi Water Villas, which are on stilts in the lagoon with an indoor-outdoor bathroom and a jacuzzi. Water Villas also overlook the lagoon, but have an indoor whirlpool bath instead; Jacuzzi Beach Villas are the same as Jacuzzi Water Villas, but set on the beach.Décor-wise, they are all beautifully and simply styled, with high pitched ceilings, whitewashed walls, kingsize beds positioned with a sea view, a white sofa, and dark polished wood floors.
A watchout while booking this resort is to decide whether you want to enjoy sunrise or sunset from your villa as half of the villas face east to sunrise and the other half to the west to sunset.
Facilities at Veligandu are in accordance with the island’s natural Maldivian style.
Trips around the atoll to see soft and hard coral and a variety of marine life are arranged. This island is one of the best places in the Maldives to see hammerhead sharks.
The main sand floor restaurant, Dhonveli, has a choice of buffet style dishes and live cooking stations, with a weekly Maldivian night.
