If an adults only all-inclusive getaway in Maldivees sounds like your idea of a vacation, at Veligandu, we bring award winning romance and adventure to you.

As many of you are aware, the Veligandu journey began with its opening in 1984. Since then, guests have been enchanted by the humble and tailored service from the team. The resort continued to flourish with success winning many hospitality awards and establishing itself in the industry as a top romantic hotel in the Maldives and around the globe.

For September 2022, beach events are in line, led by our culinary team. On Oktoberfest, perch on the white sand to celebrate Bavarian tradition with a delicious BBQ meal and Erdinger Weissbier beer. What better way to create a magical evening than with the hues of sunset and glistering stars as your backdrop?

The asset of Veligandu is indeed our diligent service-oriented team. We have a lot of activities organized for the team members every month. Looking into August, we had a “stars night “with team appreciation, a raffle draw, an exciting dance group performance, an inter-department cricket tournament, and a friendly futsal match with a neighbouring resort. Also, for September, we have planned a movie night, a picnic on a deserted island, reef cleaning, Zumba sessions, and many more events for our team.

We are thrilled to share our owners continue their commitment to care for Veligandu Island Resort & Spa and its guests by announcing a thoughtful renovation of the island, services, and accommodation. This refresh will begin on June 1, 2023, and we will be ready to welcome guests back to our shores for the festive season of 2024. Taking reservations for stays from November 1, 2024, we look forward to welcoming our repeater guests, friends new and old, to experience the enhancements. Improvements will incorporate enhanced sustainability initiatives and technological advancements while holding true to the values of genuine Maldivian hospitality found at Veligandu Island Resort & Spa.

For all your special requests or enquiries prior to arrival or during your stay, you can always reach us at [email protected]. Once you are on the island, you can book all your activities through your Island Host, who is just a WhatsApp text away.

While the 2022 special offers are still open, leverage them for your winter getaway on or before September 30, 2022. There is still time to visit and experience our secluded haven before the resort closes for renovation.

Follow our Instagram page for the latest update and recent gallery of our little paradise. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on our stories and posts.

The ambience of the island is melded into the dishes, bringing a unique touch to taste and presenting the guests with a delectable experience.

Paradise Island

"This was our second visit to the Maldives and Veligandu. If we are lucky enough to be able to return to the Maldives in the future it will be to Veligandu again. It really is a paradise island - soft, white sand with turquoise waters and a relaxed, barefoot atmosphere. The staff are so welcoming and friendly and make it truly special. Our water villas were lovely and spacious and we thoroughly enjoyed our walks along the length of the island every day. The food is excellent with a great selection at the buffet. Thank you for making us feel so welcome again!"

Heaven on earth

' We arrived to Veligandu from local island Thoddoo and as nice as it was to see the real Maldives and meet local people it was even nicer to come to Veligandu where everything is just perfect. We were greeted by our island host Adelaida who took care of everything that we needed. We were escorted to our sunset jacuzzi water villa, which was a lot better than on the pictures posted on booking.com. The reef around the island is full of life, we saw a stingray, turtle and a reef shark. We always had problems choosing what to eat as there was a huge variety of dishes which were always super delicious (especially at the asian noodle corner). The food was definitely 10/10. The staff in the restaurant is also great, they really take care of you. Everything was perfect, our biggest problem on this island was - Caipiroska or Cuba libre
