January 2021 – Veligandu Island

First Chapter of Secluded Haven

Dear Guest,

New Year 2021 Greetings from your favorite Secluded Haven.

Getting over a painful year is much like crossing monkey bars. The book of 2020 has already been closed, ended and tossed into the sea for a new beginning. The 2021 book is newly opened with brimful of hopes and has just begun. Looking at its first page, we had an excellent festive holiday with so many guests in-house, something we did not anticipate during these challenging times. Some of them were very familiar faces who had spent their festive holidays at Veligandu repeatedly during the past years. It was indeed lovely to have them back and celebrate the festive season together. Our Back-To-Nature theme for this festive season enlivened all our guests throughout, which generated numerous positive feedbacks on our social media channels, especially our daily stories.

In fact, 2020 was one of the hardest years in the history of the hospitality industry. We, Team Veligandu, as one team, conquered the hard times by investing in improving our facilities, an extreme job-well-done during the pandemic and post re-opening. A special gratitude to the wonderful hard working Veligandu Team members and we thank all our guests for the support provided during the new normal operation.

“Not all things are blest, but the seeds of all things are blest. The blessing is in the seed.” Change can be scary, but what is scarier is allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving, and progressing. The good news is, the COVID-19 vaccine administration had started in a lot of countries, giving hope for better days whereby people can travel freely around the world and enjoy without any fear.

We are expecting to welcome several repeaters and new guest during the upcoming weeks and months. We are confident that they all will have an unforgettable tale at our secluded haven.

Leverage the exciting offers of January to March 2021 and revel in the escape of your dreams in the tropical paradise which offers freedom of space and safety. Visit our website or your desired travel agent for more details. Follow us on our Instagram Stories for the latest updates and gallery of our little paradise. We will keep you updated on our daily stories.

We hope more people can escape to our lavish haven to enfold in serenity during the upcoming months. Stay safe and see you soon for an indelible mysterious anecdote.

THINGS TO DO THIS 2021 IN VELIGANDU

“The purpose of life is to live it, to taste the experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.” – Eleanor Roosevelt.

While the options for activities at Veligandu is endless. Here, we have listed down a mix of wonderful experiences which any guest may like.

The Maldives is 99% Ocean

Fish like the local fisherman: For guests interested in fishing and culture or seekers of new experiences, Veligandu suggest the casting fishing excursion in a wooden Dhoni boat with traditional fishing tackles.

Or try Big Game Fishing: charter the 11m Gulf Craft – Aisha or the 12m Riviera 41 Flybridge yacht – Kaleyfaanu for offshore fishing beyond the outer reef. Veligandu encourages catch & release fishing.
