A large white sandbank dotted with sun-loungers takes pride of place at Veligandu, which trails off into the warm Indian Ocean. The tiny island offers an excellent tropical holiday experience, complete with water villas, coconut trees and a wonderful coral reef. Imagine sitting in the Jacuzzi on the private sundeck of your water villa sipping a glass of wine, or snorkeling in the crystal-clear lagoon. The rooms are well equipped with features such as iPod docks, DVD players and rain showers, while elegant chaise longues are scattered across the beach. The main restaurant serves a delicious buffet – one of the best in the Maldives – whilst the Carter restaurant serves freshly-caught seafood and succulent steaks. The terrace at the Thundi Bar is the ultimate place to watch to sun set or sip a cocktail under the starlight overlooking the sea.
