Dear Guests,

Sunny greetings from your favourite island in the Maldives.

I hope this newsletter finds you healthy and well wherever you are.

September was quite eventful, with lots of hard work, colourful activities and exciting events.

To mark World’s Tourism Day on September 27, we invited local students from Rasdhoo Island School to honour us with a day visit. The primary purpose of the visit was to allow the students a glimpse into resort operations and provide insights that would help them as they consider their career paths. We also celebrated World Cleanup Day on September 21 and organised clean up events on three islands Veligandu, Madivaru (picnic island) and Kudarah (the small island next to Veligandu). These events are an excellent way to create immediate change and inspire others to take care of our earth and sea.

We have exciting things set to launch in the coming days. At the end of October, we are introducing the all-new a la carte menu for lunch and dinner at Madivaru Restaurant. We believe that excellent dining is essential in hospitality. Therefore, we don’t only look for high-quality ingredients and innovative ideas, but also expert techniques and appealing presentation to ensure our guests always have memorable experiences. Come and try our new dishes. They’ll surprise you!

From November 1, 2019, our All Inclusive Package will now include one a la carte lunch or dinner every 5th night of stay. This option has been created for our guests to indulge in culinary experience with great value. All there is left to do is to enjoy your meals, relax and create unforgettable memories.

If you are planning your holiday in the Maldives, we have an amazing special offer for Summer 2020. You may find more details on our website or at your favourite travel agency.


Hope to see you soon in our paradise!

With gratitude on behalf of Veligandu Team,
