We didn't have high expectations on this trip because we booked last minute and couldn't afford the 5* resort this time of the year... Oh we were pleasantly surprised :)
Reservations before our travel were very responsive and sent us detailed information (Thx Hassan F.); they also moved us to our Water Villa one day before our transfer day! THANK YOU, wonderful surprise for our honeymoon.
The Buffet was the BEST we've ever had, so DELICIOUS, different menu at every meal... seriously, better than a la Carte restaurants. Worthy of a 5* restaurant, Bravo chefs! Our waiter Tauwheed quickly warmed up to us and had excellent service.
Service overall was just WONDERFUL; the local staff were the most friendly and with the biggest smile :)
Maintenance and renovation ongoing which shows a real care for the continuous customer service and the resort.
Thank you Meeru... We will come back as soon as we can :)

we visited vilamendhoo for 5 days for our honeymoon. the arrival process and transfer from male were painless, we waited about an hour for the seaplane transfer but the lounge was comfortable and relaxing. the hotel lobby and accomodations are beautiful and updated - we split our stay between a beach villa and overwater villa. the beach villa was great for the proximity to the beach but the overwater villa was amazing - peaceful, secluded, comfortable, and luxurious. The food was delicious and there were plenty of excursions to keep us entertained. The house reef was great and I loved how accessible it was. all of the staff were very friendly and the service was top notch.

They upgraded us to the 5* gangehi island resort, it was a really great time there, a romantic and elegant resort, especially the service is excellent, the smile, the greeting is so friendly, the food is excellent too... the soft white sand, long tail beach, color of the maldives sea, the platform outside the bar, a beautiful memory in gangehi.
Hotel staff was very nice. Everything was well organized.food was very delicious. We stayed in overwater villas with jakuzi. Room is great and clean. Corals near island was very beautiful. We took a speed boat trip for snorkeling. That was highlight our vacation. We swam with fishes. We rented underwater camera at hotel and took pictures of corals.I recommend everybody.

We stayed for 8 nights and had such a relaxing and enjoyable time. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow and it was a 5 second walk from the beach. The room was perfect and the outdoor shower amazing! Snorkelling with sharks was my favourite highlight.

I went with my wife to celebrate my 20th anniversary. The place is like a dreamland. I stayed in overwater suite which was awesome . The view from the rooms or su deck was excellent. The waters were crystal clear with abundance of marine life . we spotted baby sharks, rays octopus besides variety of fishes. The food was very delicious and spread was marvelous. Vegeterians need to check with resort, though we spotted bhindi, palak man and daal. The staff one to all very courteous. They were very sweet to allow me an early check in and a slightly delayed checkout.
Staff friendly, drinks expensive (same as anywhere in Maldives), excursions reasonably priced - night fishing was fun, boat transfer was expensive (same as anywhere in Maldives).
There are about 5 restaurants on the island, if your meals are included you can eat from the main lodge buffet - the food was nice enough, prices at the other restaurants aren't ridiculous.
Great island for snorkeling, we had tons on fish just 5 meters from our villas door.
Good for wildlife... Lizards, fish, reef sharkes, massive fruit bats that are out during the day.
Good place for all, we went as a family, obviously the majority of people are couples, although we did see more people holidaying on there own than we expected to see.
