Hotels  Veligandu Island Resort & Spa
is a four star hotel with the lowest room rate of US$400 per night. But in reality the price for most dates start at US$700. Since 2016 the hotel is adult only (18+).
Seaplanes are landing on the west of the island, so it is better to take a bungalow on the east coast, as it's much quieter there.
Water villas are good for snorkellers only, as the bottom is rocky. But it is not common for the Maldives, when overwater bungalows are located on the sand.
