Hotel overview

The Maldives welcomes you to a tropical paradise­ of palm trees, white sandy beaches,­ sparkling clear, warm water in­ turquoise lagoons and colourful coral reefs teeming with abundant marine life. Vilamendhoo Island Resort, surrounded by a beautiful lagoon, an excellent house reef and long stretches of white, sandy beach, is the only Resort of Vilamendhoo, South Ari Atoll. It is 900 meters long by 250 meters wide, about 55 acres. Your seaplane transfer from Velana International Airport is a scenic, 25 minute flight. The reef around Vilamendhoo is spectacular and very close to the beach. It is a wonderful experience to see the reef and its marine life while snorkeling. To go to the reef, simply walk into the water and snorkel to the inside of the reef. Snorkel through any of the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the outside of the reef, along the “wall". Snorkel along the reef, in the direction against the current, as there is always some current, sometimes strong.­ If the current is too strong for your experience or comfort, then return inside the reef and return to the beach. When done snorkeling, return through any of the 10 “channels” through the reef to reach the beach.
