As the summer holidays are approaching, is there anything more special than spending quality time with your family? Being a year-round destination with easy international airline connectivity, our beautiful Vilamendhoo Island of Maldivian experiences could be your next destination that is worth your visit. 

We started May by celebrating Labour Day with our excellent team, who dedicated their time and effort to make your Vilamendhoo stay memorable. Then, on the 9th of May, the island celebrated Mother's Day Worldwide. Treatments at the over-water Duniye Spa were one of the popular gifts our family travellers surprised mothers who were holidaying at Vilamendhoo.

At Vilamendhoo, we proudly offer some of the best snorkelling and diving opportunities in the Maldives. Dive and discover our famed house reef, the home to many varieties of marine life, including various fish species, colourful coral formations, and fascinating creatures such as sea turtles, stingrays, and octopuses. Enrol yourself in our leisure activities. Look at our excursion program while planning your holiday with us.

Another sought-after experience by our guests is the culinary experiences at our two a la carte restaurants, Asian Wok and Hot Rock. The Asian Wok Restaurant & Bar offers an Asian culinary journey with sea views. It includes a dedicated live station for traditional Japanese Teppanyaki. The Hot Rock Restaurant provides a unique and interactive dining experience where you prepare your meal at your table on the hot volcanic rock!

For family and romantic travel alike, we have great special offers to explore with flexible cancellation available online and with your travel partners. For quotations, bookings and more information, contact our reservations team. In addition, we are constantly sharing island experiences on our social media channels, so be sure to follow us.

"… Excursions were very well organised and gave us a unique opportunity to watch all kind of wildlife, including huge manta rays and whale sharks.” rodriluDenia, Spain (4/5/23) TripAdvisor

With Vilamendhoo situated near the Maamigili Marine Protected Area, our guests has a better chance of seeing the amazing whale sharks all year around! May to November-December is an excellent season to spot these gentle giants as they come to feed in the abundant in plankton bloom.

An amazing week in paradise!

"I was worried coming during the start of the monsoon, but we still managed to have an incredible time and experience! We snorkelled every day and it was such a beautiful reef with an incredible diversity of marine life - no two times were the same! The food was actually delicious in the buffet restaurant and the rooms always kept clean. We did the full day cruise and saw a whale shark, manta rays and turtles which was breathtaking! Amazing experience, couldn’t recommend highly enough."

Great stay in Vilamendhoo

"We spent 9 days in Vilamendhoo with 2 kids (11 and 14) and enjoyed every bit of it. Our bungalow with 2 rooms was ideally located on the North side of the island with a perfect beach section with easy access to the reef. We saw many colorful fishes and several turtles on the reef. Rooms were very comfortable and large enough. The service level at Funama restaurant was excellent (thanks to our decdicated waiter Rifath) and food was very good and diverse enough during our stay. The vegetation on the island is great and offer welcome shadow. Snorkeling from the beach and excursions to visit other spots for Whale Sharks and Mantas were great and we were lucky enough to see all of them (thanks Zeck for your great guidance). Thank you Vilamendhoo, we greatly enjoyed our exciting and relaxing stay with you !."
