Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
Heaven can be found on Earth at Veligandu Island Resort & Spa, a 22 acre adults-only playground frequented mostly by herons and honeymooners in the North Ari Atoll. Whether you go beach or water villa is completely up to you, but either way you’ll be treated to a stocked minibar and outdoor bathroom – and perhaps even a private deck with a whirlpool tub if you’re lucky. Edged by shimmering white sands on just about all sides, this lush palm-filled resort offers the quintessential Maldives experience with a beachfront infinity pool, restaurants with live cooking stations and lobster on the menu, and a wealth of exciting excursions from sunset to star gazing cruises. And the best part? It’s all just a 20-minute seaplane transfer from Velana International Airport.
Why we love it
It may be one of the oldest resorts in the Maldives, but it’s by no means outdated. Veligandu Island Resort & Spa is one of the few resorts in the Maldives to offer a bar that’s open 24 hours a day with sandy floors and a sunken bar for partying the night away.
