June 2019 – Veligandu Island

A Romantic Evening In Paradise

In Veligandu Island Resort & Spa, there are endless opportunities for romance and myriad ways to connect. Further, there are innumerable chances to enjoy the splendour of nature, be it from the deck of your villa, or by the beach. Our experiences are designed to provide the perfect occasions that bring you closer to your partner and nature.

Part of our romantic experiences, the ‘Bubbly Sunset Love Bed on the Beach’ is a delightful way to start your evening while in paradise. Set on the beach, settle in and get cosy while watching nature’s show in front of you. The setting sun paints a beautiful picture, leaving in its wake a colourful sky and a stunning reflection on the sea. As the sea breeze blows gently on your skin, sip on chilled champagne and toast to incredible moments shared in paradise.

To complement the view and the drinks, we have a canapés menu featuring cold bites and sweet bites, from which you can choose four items. This unforgettable experience is $149, but guests on our All Inclusive Plus Package get a special price of $120. After a wonderful evening, you may retire to your room or enjoy our evening entertainment.

On our special offers page, we have listed the latest offer available that you can take advantage of while you book your trip to our romantic haven.

Snorkelling At Sunrise

Beyond the pristine, white sandy beaches, and lush, tropical nature in Veligandu Island Resort & Spa, there lies more beauty. A lagoon that is teeming with marine life surrounds our island. Swimming in the crystal-clear waters introduces you to a world of wonder as schools of colourful fish float past you, frolicking in the coral reefs. For those eager to go further from our house reef, we have specialised snorkelling trips scheduled regularly. The Private Sunrise Snorkelling By Speedboat trip is one of them.

This excursion is perfect for couples as it allows you to enjoy two of the purest luxuries in life, sunrise and the magical sea. Early in the morning, embark on an adventure as a speedboat transports you to nearby coral reefs. The morning light brings with it excellent visibility, perfect for sighting fish and other marine life in their natural habitat. The tranquillity that comes with being alone at sea heightens your experience, allowing you to immerse yourself fully into your exploration.

Scheduled on Thursdays and Sundays from 7 am to 8:30 am, the Private Sunrise Snorkelling trip is for swimmers only. Snorkelling equipment is available for rent from the Dive Centre or for purchase from the Gift Shop. Bring your cameras along as well to document your escapades!

Happy adventures ahead!
