"Beautiful island with amazing snorkeling & staff!"
The Centara Grand Island Resort was spectacular. The water and snorkeling are beyond words, just amazing. The staff was friendly and helpful and ensured we were having a terrific stay during our honeymoon. We have nothing negative to say about our stay.
"Very peaceful.....need to improve on entertainment"
Very very nice peaceful and calm place.....Staff were very friendly..... Special thanks to chef who made our fav dishes for our dinner. It would have been great if they had some more entertainment in the evenings

We Went to the place on 22nd Nov 2014 and stayed for 3 days. The beaches were awesome. The food was average. However, for indian veg, the cooks were more than willing to make us some curries and dal. The staff is extremely pleasant and more than willing to help. The beaches are extremely neat. The best part of the resort is that it is not very crowded and if you walk a little bit, you will feel that you are the only one on the beach.....Will definitely recommend for people travelling to Maldives.
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.

So many incredible things to write here.
First off the usual:
Good size room, incredible number of towels, huge & comfortable bed, 2 housekeeping per day, 2 refills of minibar per day, incredibly smiley and friendly staff, fantastic beach, safe for children, great number of activities, very good food, beautiful beach villa setup which is about 20-30 meters away from the water, quite atmosphere!
I am a hobby photographer and I did some shooting around the island. There was one very iconic location where I tried to get the perfect shot but some branches coming from behind were blocking the view little bit. I asked for Shaun, the General Director, and asked for 5 mins of his time. He responded immediately and set down with me. I showed the location in the photograph and just gave him a little advice about trimming the branches a little so everyone can get 'that' perfect shot. He immediately made a phone call. After he hang up he told me it will be done within 1.5 hours. And it was!!! My request was not exactly a cup off coffee but it was done in a blink of an eye. This is exactly the sort of stuff which makes you feel right at home!
Our whole experience at LUX was top notch! I can't thank Shaun and his team enough! LUX is now in our yearly program of Travel for many years to come.

It was our first stay in an island. And we stayed in a water villa for 2 nights. Stay was very nice. Room was good. The first advantage of water villa we felt was we can do snorkelling just underneath/next to the villa (something like private).
