For our honeymoon, we were looking for a nice stay on a small island on the Maldives. Once we decided to spend our vacation on the Maldives, it was clear that it will certainly not be a low budget stay. As someone who is thinking of travelling to the Maldives will know, many of the really beautiful resorts cost more... More

We Stayed at Velidhu Island Resort for 3 days. Resort is average. I mean rooms, restaurants, staff, foods are average. Not good not bad. But for this price; you can found better resorts in Maldives. We stayed in overwater bungalows. This side of Island very dark at night and far from restaurant. Also you don't have any chair if you... More

The first time we visited the Maldives, we made the mistake of paying a ridiculous excess to stay on a five star island, with the high premiums only sanctimoniously reflected in the shoddy WiFi and piped music. Velidhu, however, was the complete opposite and we have subsequently returned twice, with plans to come back again in the future. I will... More

Arrived at Velidhu on 11.5.16 and probably should have gone 2 weeks earlier with regard to the weather which was windy with a few stormy showers which in turn made snorkeling the amazing house reef with limited visibility especially in the afternoons. We were disappointed on our arrival to be allocated an un-refurbished room, the bathroom was clean but basic... More

Recently back from another short visit to Velidhu only 5 days - last there in 2014. Firstly must comment on the reef which is just amazing - since our last visit, there is so much new coral the reef looks like a garden of colour it is quite spectacular and refreshing to see especially when you read so much about...

Everyday in the Maldives is an amazing day! We chose this resort because we wanted the water bungalow experience, and felt the price was more than reasonable. I'm sure there is fancier, more lush, etc but we got all our money's worth and more here. The staff was very good, especially the scuba crew who were beyond friendly! The food... More

Rooms are excellent huts, with nice bathrooms, air conditioning and a porch are with seats, a table and a hammock which faces the gorgeous blue ocean and the reef. The island has a great restaurant, exotic sealife and excellent trips to be taken.
