Vilamendhoo Island is beautiful with great beaches and the best house reef for snorkelling and diving that we have ever seen. Even when paddling you can see baby sharks and other fish. We dived every day and the dive shop at this resort is first rate. The resort is very well maintained and although busy it never really felt crowded...

This trip was to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary. We spent 10 nights here in early April and we had an absolutely great time. Our first 8 nights were spent in a Beach Villa (167) which I would say is in a great position on the island. We did request a single villa but ended up with an adjoining villa...

As soon as we arrived at Vilamendhoo we were blown away! Within minutes of arriving we were spotting Stingrays and Reef Sharks. Our Jacuzzi Water Villa had spectacular lagoon views and direct assess to the reef.

Visiting the Maldives is a real treat - an expensive one at that - so it's fair to have very high expectations. And Vilamendhoo doesn't disappoint. We stayed "on the cheap", meaning a garden bungalow (vs. on the water) but frankly it was absolutely magnificent. The full board buffet was consistently exceptional, the staff friendly and knowledgeable, the flight smooth,...

I visited with a friend who had the water villa and I had a garden room, which turned out to be a good combination because we could swim off both the beach and the steps to the villa, one at each end of the island. The beach in front of the villas sort of belongs to the occupants so you...
