Things to do – 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!

3 Water Sports To Try In Veligandu

With crystal clear shallow waters, endless stretches of sea and a cooling breeze, Veligandu Island Resort & Spa has excellent conditions for fun on the water. If you are looking for experiences that are more action-filled than the last ones we shared, you will want to read on. Take on the Indian Ocean and chase the adrenalin with these three water sports.

Stand-Up Paddle Boarding

Also known as stand up paddling or ‘SUP’, this sport allows surfers to stand atop their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves across the ocean. Stand up paddle boarding makes for a leisurely workout as you enjoy the seascape. The crystal clear waters in Veligandu ensure that you get to view the marine life beneath you.

 Windsurfing

Feel the wind on your skin as you surf across the sea. Windsurfing combines surfing and sailing to create an exhilarating experience at sea. Those who are not afraid to get their hair wet will enjoy gliding over the waves. Windsurfing is an incredible way to take in the sights as the tropical breeze guides you.

 

Jet-Skiing

By yourself or with your partner, hop on a jet ski and bump off along the waves. Adrenalin filled and thrilling, jet skiing is a wonderful way to experience the lagoon differently. Nothing compares to that moment when you are speeding off across the ocean, shouting at the top of your lungs and making a splash.

 

 

Adventurers are advised to practice caution and safety while out at sea. To ensure that the tranquillity that other guests enjoy is not disturbed, motorised water-sports are conducted at a distance from the beach. Our qualified Ocean Water Sports team is ready to recommend a Water Sports option that suits both your experience level and preference. Equipment rental and lessons can be booked at the Ocean Water Sports Centre, which opens from 8 am to 6 pm daily.
