Velidhu is a well maintained small 350m times 300m large island in the you immediately felt comfortable. We had a water-bungalow (# 208/south/west side) for the greatest privacy to have.

Bungalows are in the years old and a little dingy. Not really clean, but still acceptable. No radio/tv, mini bar present but against payment. Pleasant guest structure. Many german guests. International would have been nice, but is due to the fact, that only Neckermann, bucher and thomascook this island offer. Why i still only a star will give later declared (theft)! …  read hotel review

It was our first trip to the Maldives and we thought, we could the destination so that tick off. A misconception! We have widerholungsbedarf! Velidhu is a small green idyll! The bungalows are not very modern, but clean and functional. But we wanted to also not always sit inside. The island to orbit takes barely 15 minutes and we asked ourselves constantly, where the other guests were!? Everything is on the small island so much, that you hardly to other holiday-makers meet. The food was varied and good. It was every evening for us sufficiently delicious. Everything is very clean ... and kept clean, even my wife with their sensitive stomach didn't have problems. We were mainly for diving there. The diving school is no bad impression. The rents for the equipment we thought was very overpriced. But we had anyway everything from home with me and we can only recommend. Not at home in tauchshop all rental, the is much cheaper than on site! The tauchpaketen boat trips were not included, okay, the petrol and the boat want to be also paid, but the bootsgebühr per dive to compute. Phew. The limit on rip-off, that we have never experienced that before. The reef of the hotel was very nice and good reachable over a footbridge. Which recommends, at home the nitrox-light make, because it is all the same, whether air or nitrox diving going, the price is the same. Recommended is the manta safari. There is no guarantee not, but we do not have the no mantas and many have gone even larger delphinschulen met. Oh, wlan gives it on Velidhu and that's great! No run with smartphone or tablet rum. That was also for us a wonderful break from the technology! All in all we can the island only recommend, it was our first barfußurlaub and we were very comfortable and the relaxation factor was huge! read hotel review

Property spacious on the island. We had a beach bungalow (number 139) which i can highly recommend. The decor is functional but clean. Here and there is even an ant or even a cockroach in the bathroom around - but we are in the tropics and something nobody can disturb. We had booked all inclusive and the resort was almost written off with predominantly german-speaking guests. Cell phone worked, but wifi is available on the island.

    The transfer from male with a water plane takes about 25 minutes and is highly recommended. Sitting on the flight left you can the island photograph. The bungalows are around the island and the distance to the beach is everywhere, and some beach sections certainly nicer (and repeatern are reserved). We were very pleased with our bungalow (139). It was especially quiet - the extra you can hear here less. Shopping was limited to the small store (overpriced). So take everything as possible and as few forget. The evening entertainment repeated every week and is relatively well arranged (crab races found i for still quite funny, but everything is after maximally 30 minutes past).

    Therefore, breakfast is for a few days, okay, then, it becomes boring. I was most disappointed. Especially juices are rather artificial (no fresh juices), müslibüfett rather modest, bread basket without big changes. Coffee there not a extrabüfett, but it is served by the waiter. The waiter is for the whole stay the same. Lunch we occasionally have used. It was very delicious and rich - a clear increase for breakfast in terms of quality. Dinner was really great. Scored here the kitchen fully. There was really something for every taste. Curryliebhaber and fish eaters got to their costs.

    The bungalows are very spacious, the furniture older nature and the air conditioning worked (although rather noisy). There is a refrigerator with mini bar (not in all inclusive). You can at the bar but water or soda and take must not every times to the bar, if the thirst to large. The shower is inside and nice large. On the terrace 2 chairs and a table to relax.

    There is a water sports centre and a diving school. There is also a ping-pong table and several games, as well as a decent library. Per bungalow there were 2 beach chairs and 2 documents, as well as daily 2 fresh towels. Entertainment none - were also not we would have liked. The water sports centre offers great manta snowmobile safaris. Here definitely on the first day, since these often for several days in advance are. Absolutely recommendable.

There are lots of mosquitoes and not enough spraying is done. Insect repellent is useless. The air conditioning is good only in some bungalows, we had an old one and it was very noisy. The reef is good, but some types of fish are missing. We are long-time snorkelers. The complex is well-maintained, each bungalow has its own beach chairs with cushions and the beach towels were changed daily. You can relax. We only missed fish a lot at mealtimes. On the day of departure we were then told that the fishing areas have changed anyway. read hotel review

We were for the 2nd time on Velidhu, because of our first anniversary. It was fantastic again! The staff is very friendly and helpful, room boy was very polite. We felt very comfortable because in 2012 we were there on our honeymoon. Next year we will fly again, because there is no better relaxation for us! read hotel review

We were on Velidhu for 8 days and it was gorgeous. The arrival by a seaplane is a must, the view during the 25 minute flight is impressive. You can totally relax. (No TV in the beach bungalow, no wireless internet, etc.) The beach is super, the reef was very beautiful (turtles, sharks, sting rays, a lot of colorful fish.). A must is the Manta Safari. a great experience There are 3 baby sharks by the breakwaters - very sweet. Our beach bungalow was always properly cleaned and we did not notice anything in regards to theft. Safes ... are available at the reception free of charge and you do not have to leave everything laying around by you.! Beach towels are available and changed daily. You should bring enough mosquito repellent. Sunscreen is recommended as well (LSF 50). In our opinion, the food was very good and also sufficient. (we are a little picky and found something every day.) The dessert was great, especially the desserts with chocolate.! The waiters were always nice, helpful and courteous. It was a perfect holiday for us. read hotel review

  • October 2013
First time on the Maldives: Velidhu Island resort from the 05. - 14,10. 2013 Prior 05,10. Alone from Frankfurt 22:05 hours with Qatar Airways terminal 1/ QR24 Boing 787 (Dreamliner) via Doha/Qatar To check in starting from 19 o'clock possible/before luggage in storage was possible = €7 for 24 hours Night flight very pleasant, in economy class enough space, nice service and good meals, flight time to Doha about 5 hours lost due to the good entertain programme. Fast Free luggage 30 kilogram + 7 kilogram hand baggage (had about 35 kilogram total luggage - complete Diving ... equipment without bottle/lead) + enough chocolate souvenirs for diving/free luggage air-taxi but only 25 kilogram, i 40 American Dollar overweight f. return paid. Change in Doha well organized (yellow band)/ 2 hour stay at the airport are well bearable/airport well air conditioned, since outside temperature of 30 degrees cel. Flight almost 4 hours with airbus a321 to male (again, with catering - less seat room) In times very high humidity with over 30 degrees., lounge airport also well chilled. There's also wi-fi (to inform people about the arrival in male) Island Velidhu: Arrival and check-in without any problem, paradise impression - the island is clean, very well maintained, nice and lovingly designed garden area (with parrots, bats and three cats), of the necessary logistics for the operation of a ' tourist. -insel' you get with hardly anything. Upgrade to the water bungalow would be 80 American Dollar/night possible (but not necessary!). Small 'barefoot island' with a nice sandy beach and bathing jetty (is necessary to go over the reef roof), breakwater before the beach does not disturb you at all, you can in about 15 minutes travel once around the island, German speaking island (about 90% german), average age mid/end of 40, some 'regular guests', hardly service, nice beach bar, spa with various treatments for 100 American Dollar/60 minutes available (not used). On the island there are mosquitos. 2 times/week, on the island is full of fog (stinks then terribly). Nobite spray (1 time ) + Nobite-ointment (1 tube/week ) + Nobite closthing spray (clothes before spray yourself thoroughly) helps a lot. Only had 1-3 mosquito bites. Money is only needed for the 'tip' (room boy, restaurant, diving school), otherwise on the last evenings invoice. In the reception there was a sufficiently large safe for valuables available. Bungalow: Kettle, nescafé, creamer and tea were sufficiently available. Enough towels and bath towels are also available (are 2 times per day replaced by roomboy). Very good and quiet air conditioning system is present, there is a very favorable laundry (the dry cleaning and laundry on the same day cleaned and ironed brought back). There is also a hair dryer and an adapter for german e-equipment. Overall, the example a simple but very clean impression. Beds are very good for beach chairs. Catering (all-inclusive): You get a reserved seat in the (single) assigned seating, which is reserved throughout the stay / drinks are all written down by the waiter and you must sign Breakfast buffet: from 7:30, quality ok (note 3), features: ' egg man' /filter coffee served in cups Lunch buffet: from 12:30, quality ok (note 2), 1 times local. 'curry', pasta, fried fish (tuna), otherwise a lot of chicken, from time to time beef, soups are delicious, large area for dessert, with lots of fruit and sweet' stuff' Dinner: from 19:30, see lunch buffet Beach: here it becomes clear that all-inclusive is not equal to all-inclusive (I still don't understand that), you sit very nicely on the beach looking at the sea, get a beer, the two house wines, soft drinks and nearly non-alcoholic cocktails (no coffee), 'real' cocktails cost $ 10 American dollars, wine is more expensive and coffee is available as Nescafe - in the context of all-inclusive. (otherwise 5 American dollars / cup) / Important: only the asterisked on the map rel. Drinks/snacks included in the all-inclusive program. Diving/diving station: On the island there is a diving station eurodivers (on padi-base). Currently chaired by the english speaking greek Leonidas Kalantidis (very nice and competent). On the homepage of Euro Divers different diving packages can be booked in advance with about 10% discount, the rental equipment (including to Loan refinancing Shortis) are in good condition and well maintained, Nitrox32 is 'for free' (of course only with appropriate certification), the processes in the base are impeccable, the staff very nice and helpful at all times. You enter yourself in a list for the desired diving trips of the next day. In the morning, one - and two-tank tours to different diving spots offered (except on friday, since gives it because of the islam. Holidays only one tank tour), which are all visible on a large card. In the afternoon, there was only one tank-tour. Similarly, (to register on a list) you can go reef diving from 6:30 until about 6:00 p.m. Sometimes ' nightdives' will be offered (on the reef or at sites outside). There is the all-level, as well as the advanced - level dives. With the intermediate -dives there is more in flow area diving. You have next to AOWD (or similar) to demonstrate that you have mastered the so-called negative entry (ie immediately descend after jumping in headfirst quickly to get out of the flow area and the underwater reef (Thila) also 'make' to) The dive sites are approached with two Dionys. For these tours, you have to at the end of each dive pay to the hotel about 16 American dollars (gross) (not at the dive center), which is of course increases the cost per dive even further. I (aowd with about 60 days before the holiday) the 6 - days no-limit dive packet (applies within seven days) in advance and have at least managed to book it, in this time 22 tg to undergo (maximum would be in six days 24 tg possible), of which 15 boat tg. Am with 3 kilogram (!) Well managed and had a 3 millimeter semi-arid suit (completely ok with about 30 °c/many diving with shorti these offers however no protection for example from waves), I bought my own diving equipment apart from bottle and lead. The tours were accompanied/guided by the Austrians Peter Eckhardt (petzi) or the Swiss Esther stucky, rarely also Leonidas Kalantidis. The briefings (in german v. Peter and Esther) were absolutely understandable and comprehensible; i always (over - and under water) felt very safe and well prepared/cared for. Under water the animal and plant world became then very actively shown. The TG was then discussed after. The underwater world: the view this season was good to moderate. I've seen next to all kinds of small fish, almost always the different types of sharks, moray eels, turtles, etc. The were no mantas at this time. The reef landscape is partly a sad sight. I suspect as famous dive sites such as Maya or hafza thila (or even the house reef) once looked. Why is that: coral bleaching end of the 90s, Tsunami, 'divers', who should not diving. It's a pity. Please help, so that the delicatly growing coral can evolve again! Do not touch, do not trample on it (but everyone knows that!) Conclusion: The big fish etc. was great, I found the reef world on the Red Sea (Egypt) more interesting. The hotel and the food was ok! read hotel review

... Is in the wrong place! Yes, there are some defects on this island. But we should not expand, since this (in view of the general situation, beauty and friendliness) not further weight! This island has, if we remember, 80 beach bungalows and 10 water bungalows. Since we booked all inclusive, we can only advise! In this performance is included everything except the mini bar and the marked a drink in the bar. During our stay there were 80% german tourists there. The rest were a mix together of swiss, austrians, russians, british and french. There were all age groups represented. read hotel review

    Here you should the distance to the beach specify?! Hmm... The island ireland standard time the beach! :-d The distance to the airport is, limited, with the speedboat about 2 hours, with the seaplane about 20 minutes. If you want to shop it is a trip to male to book! In the small souvenir shop, there was only the most necessary things and small (as the name suggests) souvenirs. At trips are offered: manta safari, delfinsafari, island hopping, trip to male...!

    There is a restaurant, a bar and a coffee-lounge, named bbq grill. The food in the restaurant is always fresh and delicious prepared. The choice is not huge, but it always in front of the background see, that everything there shipped to be! The desserts were really delicious! ;-) There were different theme evenings: maldivian, chinese, indian...! Everyone gets its own table. Depending on how many or few guests are on the island you can get the table also choose or change. Everything runs very quiet and civilised from. Not so, as in many other resorts! I had in the whole 3 weeks not even the feeling, that one of the employees on tip waited. Sometimes you had to you for even afterwards. :-d The cocktails at the bar, you have to pay for, are between 8 and 10 Dollar. A reasonable price. Nevertheless we did not try, because there were many drinks, the all-inclusive offer has, which one very well drink.

    Since we the water bungalows not have from the inside seen, can we nothing say. What we do know is, that in each of them 2 units and each of which is less than the beach front bungalows. They have something to the 48 square meter. Ok, it is true, that all has gotten a bit old. But how much time do you spend there. And as long as everything is clean?! And that was it definitely! The roomboy came twice daily to sweep. The beds were ok! Balcony does not give it, but a terrace, our luckily with sea view. Air conditioner and fan in every bungalow. Minibar available, but not used. The same, from the mini bar must be paid for, are available at the bar free (at least with all inclusive). Tv is as little available, as well as free wi-fi. The but we did both in the whole time no second missed. Kettle, fertigkaffee, tea, electrical adapters and telephone are also available. Whereas i the latter did not take advantage of, because of the huge costs. The 'wet room' we found to be a little adventurous, but fun! As the shower between sink and toilet, without a real separation, the whole area for showering regularly under water. :-d there is now also renovated bungalows, in which the amended should have. But we found the not as a drawback.

    Friendliness is a high priority here! Women across the street is you rather reservedly however never unfriendly. Everyone spoke fluent english. A staff in the bar can also very good german. That was for us, with our eingestaubten english, very calming. All of the rooms (at least the beach-bungalows) were twice cleaned daily. A doctor was always on the island were present. Since we have no reason had us over something to complain about, we cannot judge like with such situations it?!

    Which leisure options await people, a holiday in paradise make? For the, the still interested in: There is no entertainment! Thank god! Sporting activities there is - logically - exclusively water sports. And just think, that there was actually a volleyball court are. We took there however never saw anybody playing there. A disco does not give it there not, but every week once a disco evening in the bar. As well as a bingo evening, an evening with crab races (highly recommended), a magic show, once livemusic (just our taste), film the diving school and an evening under the motto 'special cocktail with soft music', the spirit of this motto we had locked?! :-d Now to the point, the holiday for us so relaxing made as none before: Every beach-bungalow has its own 2 beach chairs, with the bungalow number are, under its own umbrellas! No allmorgendlicher fight for the beach chairs and the best place. So begins each day immediately completely relaxed on. Us a question in the sense: if you expected in this area a pool? My god, you have the most beautiful bath in front of the door, that you can imagine! The beach is, if needed, cleaned. The whole island is served daily from all flung leaves removed.

    ... Is in the wrong place! Yes, there are some defects on this island. But we should not expand, since this (in view of the general situation, beauty and friendliness) not further weight! This island has, if we remember, 80 beach bungalows and 10 water bungalows. Since we booked all inclusive, we can only advise! In this performance is included everything except the mini bar and the marked a drink in the bar. During our stay there were 80% german tourists there. The rest were a mix together of swiss, austrians, russians, british and french. There were all age groups represented.

Bungalows are in the years old and a little dingy. Not really clean, but still acceptable. No radio/tv, mini bar present but against payment. Pleasant guest structure. Many german guests. International would have been nice, but is due to the fact, that only Neckermann, bucher and thomascook this island offer. Why i still only a star will give later declared (theft)! read hotel review

    Now we come to the problem in the room. In several reviews, theft mentioned, which i warned and arrangements had. So i have it caught, that my bags, my laptopcase and my purse ransacked. Obviously with the intention on the day of the departure here blow to beat. Only i meant, that nothing was missing, and this also to the management circulated have. Unfortunately, the directorate thats not responding, because it 'only checked, but nothing was stolen, '! The manager did not with me and has always on 'later' be put off any. When i later said that money was missing and police communicate wanted, one has refused the telephone/phonebook the police and refused the name of the boy to give. The manager was not willing to listen to. The bellboy was also a week after my experience with him still a cleaning strength in all other bungalows action (it was only, after i gave him the day later the entrance to the bungalow abdicated, for another boy). I believe, without this but as to say, that the management is involved.

  • Room

    Rooms not in the best condition. Bedside rugs were quite dirty. Rooms and bath were however very tidy cleaned, but existing discoloration, split tiles and even mold infestation you can't talk. No radio and/or tv. No wi-fi for own devices on the whole island available. Bed in good condition and clean. Electric kettle with coffee and tea available (immediately after the first meal, a large bottle of water, because water from the mini bar must be paid for, which is not understandable, especially, because this council by waiter personally came.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    Food was very good and varied. Great seasoned especially the rice is unique, as it was offered. Breakfast was a bit monotonous, but if you consider, the everything on the sea route herangefahren must be, comprehensible and so i mention it, i see no reason for this to complain about. Service is very good and quickly, even without a tip (out and afterwards the waiters' made up '). You get an allocated space with 'own' waiters (with me Mohamed) assigned. He is him with 'excellent' rating. The head waiter and chefs at the kochplätze were very accommodating and friendly. Unfortunately a small drawback with the cleanliness. Tablecloths weren't changed when something next to the plates was. Played but no large role, because, you always got the same table and thus knew where it came from. Thus no full 6 points earned.

  • Location
    6.0

    Ideally located, no matter in which bungalow one stayed, because all in a circle on the outside of the island are built with contact with the water. Each has its own 2 with number provided couch in the immediate area surrounding the bungalow is possible (with umbrella and cushions). No shopping possibilities, except for the small island store, the only sporadically stocked. Desk not recommendable, except the manta tour (for 50 Euro/person a must and an amazing experience!). Definitely an underwater camera with you! A beautiful coral reef, if also not more in the best condition, surrounded the island. Anyway, you can almost everywhere without bath shoes in the water if you just want to swim.

Theft at velidhu it

  • July 2013
We have already been for the 4. time at velidhu it, but it will now after some incidents this year july on this island not more. We we were stolen, and the whole place has system. It's not just happened to us three other couples with which we keep in touch here. During the last breakfast remains the luggage in locked bungalow and only the roomboy has access to this. That is a fact. When we had returned from breakfast was missing for us a cell phone, which we only on male airport noticed had. So no longer this on ... the island to clarify. The naturally know of nothing and find it almost rude the we this with you Germany have asked. A further few were 50 Euro from the bag stolen (in the enclosed bungalow understands me!), as well as 20 Euro from the hotel's own safe to the only one person has access!. Another few were dollars in not known amount stolen, as this not expected in his holiday. Only later did they bizarre, as with credit card paid and on the island nothing in bar had paid except tips for the staff. Another few was the roomboy the laptop more vessel, he had access to uses. So a good tip: only carry little cash forward for the tips of the staff, the rest of the evening before paying with credit card and important: no valuable articles in the bungalow can. It happens always exactly on the final day and we think the system behind is. In such a way which one it not more on the island can see. Also the travel line locally the place was never closes theft from. A great help no local travel agency. We have this incident the respective travel agencies reported since these aneren tourists should not happen. The island is great and you can get away from it all. The food has plenty of choice although a matter of taste. The service staff is friendly and accommodating. The room boys you have to like i said very careful. They clean the room only in the absence of tourists and say this clear. Nice is different. But now we know why they do this. Don't let yourselves of the island, but thinks of money and other valuables. Good guard as the own eyeball, especially on the last morning everything control before you with the seaplane flights to go home! read hotel review
