Tales of Secluded Haven

Dear Beloved Guests, 

Greetings and Blessings from your favourite Secluded Haven. 

Ramadan Mubarak to those celebrating this auspicious month of Ramadan. May your path enlighten and bless you and your family with peace and good health. 

I am so excited to introduce the Tale of Veligandu, a history book that contains a collection of time-honoured photographs that will take you down the memory lane of your secluded haven. Browse through the pleasant reminiscent of Veligandu history on our mobile APP or website. In the future, we will be screening a small slideshow of the historic Veligandu during the cultural show at Thundi Bar scheduled every Friday. 

Furthermore, we have expanded the luxury yacht tales by adding the private luxury yacht experience as an airport transfer option. Now, you can choose to depart from your secluded haven at your desired time to connect your international flight. Meaning you can enjoy a couple of additional hours on the island. This is an excellent option for those who are departing on a night flight. Alternatively, you can choose to leave in the morning of your last day on the island and revel in a full-day luxury yacht escapade, inclusive of a snorkelling experience in 2-3 different reefs amidst Malé Atoll, a sandbank visit, a delectable lunch and an open bar. Reach the airport two hours before your international flight departure. For full details and bookings, contact our reservation team at reservations@veligandu.com or your Island Host upon arrival. 

Recalling our last month’s sustainability tale, we participated in the global Earth Hour movement immensely. We re-created the unmissable sight by turning off the non-essential lights, dining on an eco-ambience that served sustainably sourced cuisine alongside organic beverages, organising a sunset yoga session and more. We prepared similar sustainable activities for Earth Day as well.  Check out the details of the intriguing Earth Day program on our website and mobile APP.
