Veligandu’s underwater gardens, the House Reefs

The beautiful house reefs provide an underwater garden for leisurely divers, snorkelers and for underwater photographers.

As explained by Nicola (Nic) Stratmann, Dive Manager of Ocean Dive & Sports Centre in Veligandu;
“Veligandu Island is very fortunate to have two house reef sites which are located at different ends of the island. The first house reef option is located directly in front of the dive centre facing west, towards the inside of the atoll. You can especially see the juvenile blacktip reef sharks having a stroll on the reef as well as an abundance of different types of coral, with the most colourful reef fish all around.

The second house reef is located on the south-east side of Veligandu Island, facing the outside edge of the atoll. This site is the perfect place to go snorkelling if you want to spot turtles! Of course, here you can also find all other fish and coral types seen at the west side. Please be aware of the current here, as it can get a bit stronger due to the location of the reef. For scuba diving purposes we only access the south-east side by boat, but for snorkelers it is just a 5-10 minutes swim off the beach.

All dive activities are guided dives.”

Rejuvenate At Your Safe Secluded Haven – A message from our General Manager

Dear Guests,

Blessings and Greetings from your favorite Secluded Haven.

As mentioned in my previous message, our guests are enjoying their holiday and barely notice any differences in service. In this edition, I would like to cynosure some of the alluring reviews received from our beloved guests, assuring the safe holiday experience at Veligandu and the adroitness of our staff during this uncertain time of chaotic travel.

1st Class stay during lockdown

– Alexsav85 wrote on Oct 20, 2020 – TripAdvisor

“… I never felt nervous or uncomfortable throughout the entire holiday. All staff are wearing masks and most wear gloves (especially around food) and they will never touch you. They pay you the upmost respect and there are hand sanitizers spread around the island for your convenience. They also gave us a PCR (Covid test) the day of our departure just in case it was required. Every morning/afternoon your temperature is checked via a handheld control which does not touch you…..

… I have been fortunate to visit the Maldives 3 times as well as Fiji, Hawaii and the Caribbean several times. Overall Veligandu ranks as one of the top resorts I have ever been to and I could not recommend it highly enough…”

To sum up: Veligandu was unique!

“It was the best decision we could make to travel to Veligandu despite COVID-19. And just because of COVID-19 it was a very special, unique and great experience…

… The hygiene measures on the island are very extensive and well thought out. Contact-free disinfectant dispensers are available at all entrances. On arrival and departure, luggage is disinfected. At breakfast the temperature is measured daily contact-free. Paperwork is avoided…

Schöne Insel, Toller Service, Team einmalig –> Rundum Traumurlaub trotz Covid 19

“Wir waren zum 2x für 14Tage in unserem Paradies. 2018 zum 1x und haben uns auf Anhieb verliebt. In der momentanen Covid 19 Situation hatten auch wir anfangs bedenken, aber auf dieser Insel wird wirklich alles dafür getan um sich sicher zu fühlen. Die komplette Belegschaft dieser Insel trägt zu jeder Zeit einen Mund-Nasen-Schutz, Desinfektionsspender sind überall vorhanden, die im Hintergrund laufenden Desinfektionsmaßnahmen sind kaum wahrzunehmen”

We are well preparing for the forthcoming festive season and on the verge of finalizing an exciting program which we will share on all our social media platforms by the end of October 2020. Stay Tuned.

Our British guests can rejoice. We have just gleaned the news that the government of the UK had added the Maldives to its green travel corridor. A remarkable opportunity for the British travelers to visit the Maldives before the year ends and respite in Veligandu.

On behalf of the management, a big thank you to those who have been on the island and those who booked to visit us during the upcoming weeks and months. We really appreciate that you have chosen Veligandu for your precious holiday during this uncertain time. I vouch for our guest’s feedback and assure you that the Maldives is a safe place for a rejuvenating sojourn.

It gives me great mirthfulness to perceive that our guests appreciate everything that we have done under the new normal. Our priority is and has always been the safety of our guests and team members. We are confident that all our guests will have indelible mysterious anecdotes at our forevermore secluded haven that they can swank about with their family and friends back at home.

With lots of Blessings and Warm Regards,

Fathuhulla Ibrahim

General Manager
