Back from the 650m long island

leave a comment »

Heyo, we have gone missing for quite a while. Dixie (now my wife :)) and I had gone for our honeymoon in Veligandu, a beautiful 650m long resort in Maldives.

An awesome island for anyone who likes the sun, beach and sea.

A wide range of villas available for selection; water or beach gives the option of waking up facing the open sea or sunrise on the beach. Sleep with your snorkelling gears and you can jump into the sea the moment you open your eyes.

For anyone who is keen to visit Maldives resort, please please opt for the All Inclusive Package (AIP). You can just forget about the word “cash”. Just drop by any of the restaurants and 24 hours bar for a free drink (cocktail, juices or alcohol), just like home. Best thing is its “24 hours” service.

The international buffet provided by Veligandu Restaurant is awesome as well. With a different selection of soup every meal.

Price is affordable and for anyone who is keen to visit Maldives, this is one resort which you can probably consider. 🙂

We took a seaplane from Male International Airport to Veligandu, the holding area for seaplane flight is comfortable, unfortunately, the seaplane flight itself isn’t. 23433503773_837bbd1834_zIMG_6574-2IMG_6570IMG_6572

Greeted by the the staff with personalised “guide” from entrance to your villa doorstep.

Nope, i do not have picture of their rooms, i am there as a tourist, you may check out their website for their villas and suites.

But this is what we see every day

And what we do everyday is, swim, snorkel, sun tan, eat, sleep and shit a lot (to much food to eat everyday, we are on AIP)…

The sea is so clear that occasionally sharks, manta ray and dolphins drop by to say hello.

Otherwise, we will just roam around the island taking pictures of ermm, ourselves. But considering the island is only that big we always end up in the same place.

Dinner ends pretty late, and by the time we are done, its pretty late and we have to walk some distance back with the help of little lights + moonlight which i find night time to be a little eerie.

The sea comes to live and there are lots of activity down there, if you decide to spend some time searching.

Otherwise, the big bird might drop us a visit + poo, if you are lucky enough.3333.jpg23764937740_3de170a2b6_z24020916806_4391ef16e3_z
