We traveled to Veligandu in a company of 4 and the time we spent there was MAGIC. The overall ambience of the resort was like a dream, with wide lagoon and clear weather in the picture. Upon our arrival, we were received with warm hospitality and was told that our room got upgraded from Water Villa to Jacuzzi Water Villa. The room was well equipped with beautiful interior and every amenity you possibly need, and its surrounding was beautiful beyond belief. Our room manager Saeed dropped by our room at least twice each day to neatly tend our room. The only complaint we might have with the room is WiFi, which was abruptly disconnected often.Each day, they made sure to serve a good variety of food selections and the taste of about every menu was quite top notch. Every staff at the resort appeared to be very friendly and well trained. We took on a sunset cruise ride one day and, boy, did we just run into a hundred of dolphins!
The whole experience at Veligandu was worth every cent and I would want to recommend it to every traveler with upper-mid-range budget who targets for a week or two stay.
Tropical beach resort composed of bamboo and palm-thatch buildings, occupying a tiny island located on the North Ari Atoll …More
1. Overwater villa, we stay near the sand bar (room 31) which is very great with just walking distance to their tail sand bar and right in front the sun set view..
2. Recommend for booking all inclusive as the food there would cost sum as they charge in USD.
3. The staffs all are very friendly when they know we are the only asian in the island during the stay.
4. Weather is great, the view and the sceneries is the same as shown in the pictures!!!
5. The only downside is the bed, is joined by 2 single beds to make it becomes super king size bed.
Beautiful surroundings, grounds are very well kept and preserve that "island paradise" feel. Snorkelling was fantastic- whole family really enjoyed it. Staff were professional and friendly. Food was good, especially the curries on Maldavian Night and the fresh fruit at breakfast. Thank you Nika
"NICE HOTEL CLOSE TO THE BEACH AND RESTAURANT & BAR"
THE GUNBARU INN WAS A VERY COMFORTABLE CHEAP HOTEL TO STAY IN BY MALDIVE STANDARDS AND CLOSE TO A NICE BEACH + OPPOSITE A PHARMACY.
IT SERVED A GOOD BREAKFAST AND THE ROOM WAS ALWAYS WELL SUPPLIED WITH MUCH NEEDED TWO BOTTLES OF WATER A DAY A LOVELY SATALITE T.V SERVICE.
THE MANAGER AND HIS TWO CO-WORKERS WERE VERY FREINDLY AND HELPFUL AND ARRANGED GOOD SIMPLE ISLAND HOPPING EXCURTIONS FOR ME + NIGHT FISHING AND ABOVE ALL VISTING AND DINING AT A NEIGHBORING FAMILY HOME.
"Staff is very attentive and helps you with any req"
Arrived on Thursday, hotel owner meets you at the port and takes you to the guest house. Fairly new rooms after the updates and conversion to lodging. Av works well, hot water not a problem in the shower. Food is good, although you may have to order in advance by a day if they need to catch the fish or similar. Wifi works ok, sometimes the server for the island goes down. I went diving and boating with the tours and excursions offered. Had them arrange a seaplane for my departure. Very nice stay.

Pocket Guide: North Ari Atoll North Ari Atoll Hotels
Although a popular tourism region, North Ari Atoll is certainly not overly developed. Dive operations are run by all resorts, with some catering particularly to the advanced diver. To the north east is Rasdhoo Island with its Buddhist heritage, quaint village, and deep sea medical centre. Hammerhead sharks may often be seen offshore on the outer reef. “Fish Head”, one of the world’s most famous dive sites, is located further south.
