It is very difficult to add anything new to the amazing reviews already published on this stunning island. As this was our honeymoon we did extensive research on which island to stay and Veligandu kept coming out at the top of our list. Having just got back we absolutely made the right choice.

Best vacation by far! We were looking for a honeymoon location and there is no words to describe how beautiful it is! The resort was perfect. No issues at all. Everything was clean, workers were all friendly, and food was really good and fresh everyday!

My wife spent a lot of time researching our honeymoon destination and she did an amazing job finding/choosing Veligandu. We were in jacuzzi water villa 146, this was on the sunrise side (not the terrible fate some people have made out!). We had gorgeous sunshine on our deck until early afternoon and then some well needed shade. The villa was...

After 2011 and 2013 we decided to return to Veligandu Island Resort again for one week. We definitely enjoyed every minute of our stay . Since 2017 they changed their kids policy and now allow kids over 18 years only. This was one of the reasons to come back again too! Staff and management are all very friendly and helpful....
