Veligandu Island is a haven of invaluable comfort and pleasure. There are a few places – even in the Maldives – that can compare to the island’s natural beauty. Encircled by beautiful beaches of fine powdery sand and a huge sandbank of 80 meters on one end, Veligandu is a haven of peace and tranquility, the perfect place for a relaxing holiday.

Apart from the thatched roof and the fine white sand on the floor, Veligandu offers real Maldivian charm, a high standard of services, friendly and experienced staff; it has an extra-ordinary elegance that is almost beyond compare. This is the real Maldives.
Veligandu Island Resort is situated in Rasdhoo Atoll in North Ari Atoll, some 50 kms from MaleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ International Airport. A short scenic flight of 20 minutes that will carry you over some of the beautiful Maldivian islands and reefs, will take you to the landing platform right at the edge of the famous sand bank at Veligandu.
