We had an incredible time on our honeymoon to this isolated tropical paradise. The hotel staff were amazing, the food was great, and the over all experience was beyond our expectations. It is truly paradise, waking up to a grey heron perched on a sand bar, reef sharks herding fish against the shore, and crabs running about in the sand. So peaceful, so quiet, so serene. Truly amazing.
We had a great holiday at Veligandu. The villa is big and clean, and all staff are nice. The all-inclusive package is fantastic, and we enjoyed great food, wine and dessert at the restaurant and bar with menu changing everyday. Clear water with beautiful corals and lots of fishes. Definitely recommend to all couples and families.

"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.
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.
