This was our (wife and I) first trip to the Maldives and a co-worker recommended this resort and I could have not been more satisfied. The price is reasonable compared to other resorts in the area. The seaplane ride is awesome to the island. On the island we stayed in a beach-front room. This is a must if you are... More

It is so relaxing to stay at Vilamendhoo. We had a beach vila with your own porch. When you step out from the vila, you are directly on the beach and the sea is like 5 meters away.

Had a memorable honeymoon trip with the resort. Very clean and beautiful waters. Stayed in the Water Villa and had a great view of the Ocean. Friendly staffs who will chit chat with the guests and excellent service. Value for money. Indeed a paradise on its own. Will definitely return to the resort.

Easy to reach with a sea plane and we enjoyed the views getting there. Relaxing place and amazing reef that is just meters away from your chalet. Separate sections of the island for families and couples.
