One of the best Adults only getaway in the Maldives: Veligandu Island resort ranked amongst top travel destinations.

We are thrilled to share the good news that your secluded haven in the Maldives has garnered yet another set of accolades. First, the HolidayCheck Special Award 2022 recognised Veligandu for being among the ten most popular hotels in the region.

Secondly, the renowned German tour operator, Der Touristik has named Veligandu as one of the top 100 hotels worldwide, honouring us with the Deutschland Red Star Quality Award 2021. With this fresh set of awards coupled with the TripAdvisor Traveller's Choice awards and booking.com 'Traveller Review award'. With this, Veligandu has now received a total of four awards for this year I extend my heartfelt gratitude to my team for their diligent performance and our guests for appreciating their genuine services on all platforms that led us to receive these honourable awards.

Where there is the ocean, you will never get bored. Ocean activities are a must-do adventure while you are in the Maldives. The Ocean Dive and Water Sports Centre in Veligandu are well equipped for over and underwater thrills, fun, and relaxing ocean escapades from paddle boats to jet-ski rides, sailing, and many more. 

Perhaps no leisure pursuits get you closer to marine life than scuba diving. It allows hand-to-hand acquaintance with the fascinating sea creatures that you may not be able to fascinate from the surface of the water. The Maldives ranks as the best scuba diving destination across the globe due to the perfect temperature of the ocean and the breathtaking marine world.

The most popular three dive spots near Veligandu are Madivaru Corner, Kuramathi Thila, and Cave, just 10-30 minutes from the resort. Without a doubt, Madivaru Corner is the most spectacular dive site that never disappoints. There is a mesmerising diversity of marine species that range from large pelagic species to small pelagic fish, small critters, and beautiful corals - soft and hard. It is the definite favourite of our divers and dive professionals alike.

Kuramathi Thila, aka Rasdhoo Channel, is the channel between Kuramathi Island and Rasdhoo Island. Several beautiful 'Thilas'lined up on the channel drop-off. Myriads of pelagic fishes swim towards the right current conditions. There are big sandy patches in between these 'Thilas'that create impressive landscapes. Due to its depth, this dive site is for Advanced Divers only, best on Nitrox.

The Caves' is a wall dive site on the western side of Rasdhoo Atoll, approximately 30 min boat ride from Veligandu. The large overhangs and two small caves are an absolute highlight of this dive site. The abundance of healthy coral species with a garden of stunning table corals on the top reef less than 10m deep is spectacular.

Diving is undoubtedly more complex than any other water activity. It requires special equipment and training before you can dive into deep waters. To prepare you for your ocean adventures, our ocean Dive Center has a perfect range of PADI diving courses from beginner to professional levels.

If you have any special requests or enquiries before your 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.

"Went to Maldives for the first time for 3 days in June 2022 first week and landed in heaven (Veligandu). This Island was sooooo amazing that I am short of words to describe how beautiful it was and how well it is maintained. To give crisp review of each aspect:

#Rooms : Got a wonderful sunset jacuzzi water villa towards the end of all villas with so much of privacy that I felt we were alone at that place with no one to disturb. Rooms were cleaned two times a day which kept the place very clean. Every small thing provided in the room for guests comfort. We could leave anything in the room lying around without any fear of it getting stolen!! Jacuzzi was awesome to use and gave a beautiful view with ocean in front of you while lying there.

#Food: We are vegetarians and didn't expect much..but to our surprise there were many options including salads, juices, Italian food and much more and taste of everything was superb. We kind of overate at each of our meals. Dhonveli restaurant was huge because of which it never seemed busy & we always had good time eating our meals. Special thanks to Ramesh from the restaurant for making awesome pasta for us per our taste :)

#Staff: Special thanks to Natasha who was our host and Ahmed who was our Island manager for always being there. Our seaplane got delayed due to which we were stressed if we will miss our international flight but Veligandu staff on the airport made sure that we are on board. Special thanks to him.

# Resort: Heaven on earth!!!... no words can justify its beauty. Lots of activity to do with support staff always there for you e.g. snorkeling, dolphin excursion and photo shoot.

Hope to be at this place every year." jain-mani (6/6/22) - TripAdvisor
