    Paradise island with excellent food and snorkeling
    Pros: This was the second time we visited Vilamendhoo. This island is the paradise but it’s affordable when it comes to the Maldives high prices. The rooms are fantastic and the service is flawless. The house reef is definitely worth it and you can see a lot. Ocean discovery full day trip is recommended.

    Great time in Vilamendhoo
    Pros: We stayed at Vilamendhoo one week and we had a great time! People were really nice and helpful everywhere. We enjoyed the all inclusive package (definitely worth the price!) and all the included activities (kayak, windsurf, tennis and the sunset cruise where we spotted dolphins). We also did the the whale shark excursion and we managed to see a whale shark, amazing! Definitely recommended!
    Cons: One night we found 4 cockroaches in the room, even in my luggage. How they managed to get into our water villa is still a mystery. I can accept wildlife, given that we are on a tropical island, but cockroaches are really not ok. If the hotel is aware of this, it should inform and advise the guests on this potential issue (for example saying not to leave open luggage on the floor etc..). Despite this inconvenience, the staff was very helpful and reacted quickly. We also had a rough experience in our way back to Male airport, even if it's not really Vilamendhoo's fault. We boarded the first seaplane of the day (at 6am), confident that we could be at the airport way in advance for our flight at 9.40am. However, the seaplane made few stops on the way and it took almost 1 hour and half to reach Male (compared to the usual ~25min)! After that, the airport was a complete chaos with queues everywhere and we almost missed our international flight.

    Amazing staying & good value for money
    Pros: We had an amazing staying. The room, the beach, the reef, the staff, the trips were all great. Our experience with the diving centre was amazing, so was the guest service which was really fantastic throughout the holiday.
    Cons: The candle light dinner looked it had been improvised a bit. Little variety of food at the buffet restaurant. The beach outside our beach villa was always in the shade so we had to drag the sunbeds a bit far to be in the sun. The staff at the restaurant was not very professional we felt.

    My experience in Vilamendhoo was fantastic (not taking in consideration de food, more on this later) PROS - Terrific employess, they do all possible to make you feel confortable. - Location is the best with a resort sorrounded by a coral reef - Snorkelling was like swiming inside a fish tank, amazing experience. - Very quite place, if you plan to sleep with no noise, this is the place, in our trip all people didn´t do any noise even when they were collecting the baggage their baggage trolley didn´t make any noise, in lot of resorts they dont care and make noise in any moment of the day even when most people is sleeping. - The rooms over the sea were fantastic with good air conditioning, great for sleeping in complete silence surrounded by the sea. - Resort not too far from Male, 30-45 min from plane if it does not have any delay, in my case it had more than 45 min of delay. CONS - I was in an all inclusive package and the food didn´t work for me, at the end of my stay I ended with my stomach in very bad shape mostly for the kind of food they served, heavy seasoned food, very easy to get spicy food in lot of dishes, I´m no diabetic but I don´t eat sugar and there was lot of dishes were sugar was present, even meat with the sauce with sugar. Sugar in any form is bad for most people because of the glucose and fructose content, it doesn´t matter the color, are all bad in the same way: white sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, date sugar, etc, the only safe options are Stevia and Monk Fruit and for an unknown reason this sweeteners were missing and not used by the chef. Even the meat had some kind of sweet sauce or spicy, sometimes I was able to find a good meat cut, but only sometimes, even the Waygu beef was nothing particular, I think the food is something the resort should improve otherwise is something in my case will limit the number of the days I could stay till my stomach supports it.

    Vilamendhoo è un meraviglioso resort a conduzione maldiviana, ti fa sentire parte di questa terra e offre tutto quello che puoi immaginare per una vacanza da sogno..ha un reef ricco di pesci che circonda tutta l’isola, propone tante escursioni tra cui quelle per fare snorkeling con mante, tartarughe e squalo balena, ha camere accoglienti e pulite, tre ristoranti e tre bar tra cui il sunset bar che ogni volta regala emozioni e un servizio impeccabile grazie al cortese personale. Un ringraziamento particolare va a Samuela della reception che ci ha accolto e consigliato per prenotare le varie attività durante la nostra permanenza, alle preparatissime guide locali che ci hanno accompagnato nelle escursioni snorkeling, alla dolce e sorridente Mounika che ha servito il nostro tavolo all’Asian Wok con tanta cortesia e premura e al simpatico e gentilissimo Shiyaz che ci ha accolto ogni giorno con il sorriso al nostro tavolo del Funama Restaurant augurandoci sempre una buona giornata..con il cuore.

    Второй раз уже побывали на этом острове и в этом отеле. Внимательное и гостеприимное отношение персонала с первой минуты. Встреча в аэропорту Мале, провожают до стойки регистрации на гидросамолёт. Далее - переезд в аэропорт на воде))). Полет до отеля на гидросамолете(25-30 минут). Сразу ориентирую: в гидросамолет на одного человека можно с собой багажа 25 кг, включая ручную кладь! После приземления встречает отелевский катер. Встреча на ресепшн(на причале с барабаном)) и размещение. Мы второй раз брали номер на южной части острова(рядом песочек, удобный вход в воду...). При этом, живности(снорклинг), больше со стороны северной части. Еда вкусная, в достаточном количестве и разнообразном виде, с тематическими ужинами. Обслуживание в ресторане Фунама - хорошее. У нам официантом уже второй раз был - Шияз. Молодец: вежливо, быстро, чутко и внимательно! Спасибо - Шияз!) Хорошие бары) Закуски в барах вкусные, коктейли - качественные, нам понравилось) Большие площадки перед барами с достаточным количеством посадочных мест. Быстрое и внимательное обслуживание. В номерах убирали чисто(два раза в день), не заметно(в период приема пищи или отдыха на берегу), короче - не мешали)). Рум бой по имени Мухамед был адекватный, внимательный к просьба, за что ему отдельное спасибо!) Смена белья через день. Правда не повезло с погодой. Из 12 дней(декабрь)дня три-четыре только в конце погода и успокоилась. Как только приехали - дожди, сильный ветер - как следствие - мутноватая вода для дайвинга и снорклинга... Дайв центр отличный. Есть все необходимое снаряжение. Достаточное количество инструкторов с продуманной программой организации выездов на дайвы по различным сайтам, которых больше 50-ти!!! С утра выходят на дайв сразу две лодки по разным направлениям. На досках информации вывешивают направления, куда каждый может по своему желанию заблаговременно записаться. Есть предложения на дайвы релаксные, есть и медиум(течение и т.д.). Как правило выход до обеда с двумя дайвами. Если на акул, то три дайва сразу за выход, с обедом на лодке. Есть послеобеденные дайвы(выход на один дайв). Есть ночные дайв и снорклинг. Можно парой самим дайверить возле острова(не на каждом острове и дайв-центре), для этого все организовано. Дайв-центр расположен в центре остова, возле ресторана и рядом с пирсом, откуда отходят лодки на дайвы. Команды на лодках адекватные, внимательные. Всегда помогут со снаряжением, принимают с воды хорошо. Считаю, что для дайверов в этом отеле и на этом острове созданы идеальные условия, с максимальным учетом пожеланий на любой вкус и цвет. Я непосредственно видел и акул и мант, черепах и т.д. Спасибо дайв-центру Euro-Divers Vilamendhoo за прекрасную организацию дайв-выходом. Особая благодарность за позитив и профессионализм инструкторам Ник, Этхан и Мэри, от Александра - шоколад))

    Fantastisch verblijf gehad. Nog nooit zoveel soorten vissen gezien tijdens het snorkelen; haaitjes, octopi, eagle rays, eals, pijlstaartrog, schildpadden, noem maar op. Prachtig resort. Het eiland is niet groot maar zeer de moeite waard. Jameel in het restaurant was zeer behulpzaam. Mooie kamers. Top!

    While my stay at the hotel was nice, as soon as I travelled back I starter feeling extremely sick: I got the DENGUE FEVER. I have been hospitalized for 7 days. A really terrible experience. The resort poorly cares about mosquito disinfestation (it was FULL of mosquitos around our room), putting the health of their guests in serious danger. The also never mention about Dengue risk. The pain and sickness I have gone through are not worth the experience. Stay away from this resort if you care about your health

    We stayed at Vilamendhoo for one week before Christmas, on the way back my boyfriend starts to feel sick. He has been hospitalized since then with dengue fever and terrible symptoms, despite being in perfect health before the trip. We had read a review by another Vilamendhoo guest getting dengue one week before our trip, but we cannot find the review anymore. This means that there have been at least two cases in two weeks and that the resort, in addition to failing to perform pest control, seems to be trying to hide them.

    Vor einer Woche zurückgekommen und als „Repeater“ erneut überzeugt. Besonders die Küche ist ein echtes Highlight. Auch zu erwähnen die gute Weinauswahl, in einem All In Resort alles andere als üblich. Personal überragend, kennen die Gewohnheiten super schnell und reagieren pro aktiv. Asia Wok im Osten der Insel ist ein weiteres kulinarisches Highlight, Qualität der Speise. und auch der Service noch mal eine Klasse besser! Wir haben uns dort jedes Mal außerordentlich wohlgefühlt. Wir hatten die Möglichkeit die Insel auch Backstage zu erkunden, bemerkenswert was da geleistet wird. Man in etwa die gleiche Zahl an Personal wie Gäste. Die Insel ist wirklich zu empfehlen, wir kommen wieder.

    Eigentlich müsste ich hier über das Hotel herziehen was es hält, einfach nur damit es keiner bucht und ich auch kurzentschlossen herkommen kann 😉. Das wäre aber super unfair, die Insel ist ein kleines Juwel, Ausstattung und Zimmer ohne tadel. Die Angestellten sind durchweg ofen, freundlich und immer hilfsbereit. Es fehlt schlichtweg an nichts. Die Tauchbasis lässt auch keine Wünsche offen, ob spontan am Hausriff, oder 1,2 oder 3 Tauchgänge, alles da. Die Tauchlehrer (drunter arbeitet hier niemand) sind in allen Sprachen vertreten und wie alle anderen auch, immer freundlich, kompetent und hilfsbereit. Die Leihausrütung ist in einwandfreiem Zustand und wird ständig gewartet. Wer kann bringt seine eigene mit, spart einige Euros. Wenn's mal wegen Nase oder Nebenhöhlen nicht geht, wird unkompliziert storniert. In der Unterwasserwelt gibt es alles was man sich so wünscht, wer Angst vor Riffhaien hat ist hier aber schlecht beraten, mit denen geht man hier schnorcheln.

    Vilamendhoo is simply outstanding from the moment you check in until you check out.We have just returned from a 15 night stay 29th December-15th January room 249. We are well travelled and can honestly say this island is magical! The staff are delightful and genuinely friendly and welcoming.The food is amazing! Huge thanks to the chefs who work incredibly hard to produce delicious food.My son requires gluten free food and everything is labeled.The gluten free bread is excellent and on request will make delicious gluten free pasta. Housekeeping is excellent with a turn down service. We are returning this December and are already looking forward to swimming with the reef sharks and enjoying the powder white sand.Thank you to everyone for looking after us.

    //Summary// Unsure how anyone could rate this hotel anything less than 5 stars. It’s the best example of paradise I have seen and judging by the steer amount of ‘returners’ (people who come back year after year), I’m confident the vast majority would agree (more on why they come back later). The staff are extremely friendly and polite. Our waiter Ilham was very attentive, lovely to speak to and generally a great laugh, Irham who tidied our room every day, went above and beyond whenever he could and Avoy was extremely friendly and welcoming every day at breakfast. All the other staff we spoke to were lovely and are a credit to the resort. //Break Down// -Weather- Our biggest concern going into the holiday was the weather. A lot of information we read was conflicting and the local weather reports didn’t look good. We arrived on the 31st October for two weeks and after the first two days, the weather reports showed showers and/or thunderstorm for the remaining 12 days of our holiday. Completely ignore these reports! During that time we only had two sets of short showers during the day and one persistent set of rain on the morning we left (last from 9pm until 11am). -Money- Everything is priced in US Dollars. It’s important to note that you don’t need any physical cash unless you want to tip. Everything is put on your ‘room’ to be settled in cash or card when checking out. To give you a steer on the cost, we spent £740 on a whale shark trip, nurse shark trip, turtle trip, a manta ray trip & two fridge magnets at the shop (all trips for two people). Not cheap but we’re all worth it (will attach some photos). -Travel- A quick note on travel, the sea plane trip lasts around 30 minutes but you might be unlucky (like we were) by having to wait 3-4 hours at Male airport for the transfer to the resort. It felt fairly brutal after travelling nearly 17 hours from the UK after a brief stop in Doha. -Hotel/Island- The resort is small. Only 900 meters long by 50 meters wide. Considering the hotel was 85-95% full while we were here, it felt incredibly quiet and peaceful. Other guests were quiet and reserved (not once did I hear shouting or music other than the main entertainment). Saying this, the average age of people on the resort is older so not exactly club 18-30 😂 The resort seems particularly popular with Germans and Swiss guests. I think the next largest majority would be British. After speak to one German Couple (for context, they have been back 8 times here after visiting 7 other islands), they said they come back here as the island is nice and small (some other islands are rather large), the resort has its own coral (more on this later) and generally the other guests tend to be German/Swiss who they can speak to in German or English. -Food- Food was great and we felt like we had great choice each night (they having a themed night for each day of the week). My partner is a vegetarian and she had no issue at all. If you have any allergies then they seem very accommodating and all the food is clearly labelled (including if it’s suitable for vegetarians/vegans and how spicy it is). The only shame for me personally (I know this is being picky so shame on me), the chicken almost always had bones in it which put me off having the curries which were delicious. As part of our stay, we could go to the Asian resturant twice. We went once and enjoyed the view (worth going at least once), but we generally preferred the food at the main resturant (that was just our personal preference and the food at the Asian Restaurant was good). -Wild Life- If you love wild life (like we do), then this is the place for you. I’ll start with the non-trip wild life that you get to see around the island. Herons - They are everywhere (and even take a dip in the pool). They are fairly tame and normally let you walk within a few meters of them. Fruit Bats - Hard to take a photo of as you only see then flying (they fly around during the day). Lizards - See them typically around the trees near the beach. Geckos - Will likely see them in your bathroom (more why later). Various tropical fish - The resort has its own coral (which a good number of other islands do not). You can see them all in abundance (clown fish, angel fish, parrot fish). Sharks - You can easily see them swimming close to the shore (they are only small and are very cute). Hard to see them snorkelling as they are quite skittish. Rays - If you keep an eye out, you should get to see some sting rays and eagle rays. We saw a sting Ray around the Asian Restaurant and around the beach outside villa 125 several times, typically early in the morning. Do watch out as they can sting you if you step on them as they tend to lie and semi bury themselves close to the shore. They are more afraid of you so just ‘shuffle’ your feet when walking into the water as this will scare them off before you stand on them. For Eagle Rays (have beautiful spots on top) we saw one while walking along the water villas (early in the morning, around 7am) and we also snorkelled into a group of 3 while snorkelling at the coral just outside our room (as soon as they saw us, they swam off very quickly, will as a picture of the blurred gopro footage I have). Turtles - You will likely see turtles come up for air around the island (we only saw this along the south east of the island where our room was) however, it’s rare to see them in the water as they are so camouflaged and only seem to be out in the early morning (6.30-8am). We were however lucky enough on one occasion to see a Turtle whilst snorkelling in the water (will add a photo). Trips (General) As a general tip, we split up all the trips as much as possible. Your group tends to be smaller, you have break it up more over your holiday and you don’t have to spend the whole day wet. It’s also worth noting that it’s not uncommon to go out and not see anything at all so I would prepare yourself to have a ‘no show’ trip which you still have to pay for. We got lucky and this didn’t happen but we were aware of this happening to other people. Whale Shark Trip - If you have never seen them before, then I highly advise that you go. For anyone worried about deep water, you can can see the bottom when looking at them (around 15 meters deep). It took around an hour to get there, an hour in the water (in and out) with an hour back. My biggest advice is to ‘be on the ball’ and get off the boat promptly. You will very likely have other groups of people on boats trying to see the same whale shark as you (it was us and 3 other boats so maybe around 40 people total). It would be easy to get into the water last, be stuck behind everyone and only see the whale shark when it has swum downwards (they tend to swim down slowly when too many people are around). Don’t worry if you get unlucky on your first attempt (like I was). You will be getting on and off the boat around 5-7 times as the boat tries to catch up to the same whale shark again or another one. Turtle Trip - Funnily enough happened on the same day we saw the turtle in the morning around the resort. Lovely short trip, was only us and one other couple. Only 20 minutes on the boat to get there and saw 3 different turtles. You could just sit there and watch them. Truly amazing. Would be a great trip for weaker swimmers. Manta Ray Trip - This was personally my favourite. They are HUGE. Out of all the trips, these were by far the hardest to see and they also swim very fast, so more than anything, you need to be on the ball to get a good view but you do get on and off the boat several times to see them so there are multiple opportunities. The visibility on our trip wasn’t as good (unsure if this is standard or not, could have just been the weather that day). Like the whale sharks, be prepared to get on and off the boat several times and be quick to get in the water. Out of all the trips, I think this would be the worst one for weak swimmers. Nurse Shark Trip - Probably my least favourite out of the trips but still loved it. It takes around 75 minutes (via speed boat) to get there. You arrive with other boats who are feeding crabs to the sharks so you see plenty very easily. You travel another 10 minutes to see a ship wreck which is fairly cool. -Room- We have an a-joining beach villa. I was concerned about hearing people next door but I didn’t hear anyone once over two weeks so this is nothing to worry about. The air conditioning works very well and the mini bar is very well stocked (even with cold coffee!) Do be warned that the bathroom is ‘outside’ meaning that basically half the bathroom area is open air (surrounded by a 8ft-9ft wall). You do get used to this and you actually learn to love it (a bit odd at first though). This is why you can’t fly drones on the island. Regarding the ‘best’ rooms, here’s my advice. I will refer to the rooms as North West, North East, South West & South East so you will need to look at a map. Personally, I would avoid rooms on the South West of the island as they have little to no beach. These villas tend be the adult only/jacuzzi. The North side of the Island has biggest beach however, the water is typically covered in stones and coral so it’s not that great for paddling (it’s the more beautiful side of the island though). The South East (where we were) was perfect for us. You get a great view of both the sun rise and sun set on the beach, the coral is literally 10 meters away (on the other side it’s more like 30-40 meters away) and the beach is lovely. The ONLY downside is that there are white painted concrete blocks to protect the beach. On top of this, one of the main swimming pools (which has a pool bar) which is usually quiet is very close to the middle of this beach (and was directly behind our room of 111). It was perfect to swim in after a snorkel. -Other- Meals - You are allocated a table at the start of your holiday which is yours for the whole visit. We were very lucky (kind of, will explain in a minute) to be sat at the front to see out of the restaurant. If you don’t like your table, I would ask if you could change first thing. Footware - The resort is 100% sand, I didn’t wear any shoes, socks or flip flops for two weeks (amazing). On that note, I never wore trousers either, always shorts. Wheel Chairs/Buggies - Even though the resort is all sand, in reality, the majority is sand covered concrete (you only notice this now and then when it’s rained and has washed some of the sand away). Mosquitoes - They love me, whichever holiday I go on, they find me once it has gone dark (even when I put spray on). Sadly it was no different here. They mainly got me when I was eating at night (the downfall of having a nice table at the front). It didn’t ruin my holiday, just a sad reality of reacting badly to them. My partner barely gets bitten by them and only had around 5 total across two weeks sitting in the same place and putting the same spray on.

    Super Insel mit viel Komfort. Klasse Service, man fühlt sich echt willkommen. Preisleistung in vielen Bereichen okay. Wellnes etwas überteuert und für sup 50 Dollars die Stunde auch überzogen. Personal freundlich und sehr sauber in allen Bereichen. Wer schnorcheln am hauseigenen Riff liebt und auch etwas sehen möchte an Korallen und Fischvielfalt, ist hier bestens aufgehoben.

    Our second visit to this beautiful island. A 2 minute walk to the beach and immediate reef for snorkelling - what more can you ask for. Excellent food. Polite, professional staff. Even if it rains, you are still in paradise! We'll be back We rated 4 for sleep quality - this is entirely a personal thing, but we found the mattress to be to firm. As soon as we mentioned it, we were provided with a mattress topper. But, if like me you have a back issue, keep in mind that you might want a topper from day one.
