We had a fantastic week, we were looked after so well and there was so much for the children to do. They loved swimming, snorkelling on the house reef, the kayaks and the football pitch (so hot!) This place really is paradise! My only feedback to improve is that it would be nice if the waiters wrote the orders down as in every bar they consistently brought us the wrong drinks 😂

Hotel's Favourite
Love Vilamendhoo, it really does feel like coming home in a way (i wish this was my home, to be honest). I've been here a few times already, and will be coming back only to this island after experiencing a few others. This place is pure paradise and they really go out of their way to make your experience perfect. When you're a returning guest, they also find extra ways to pamper you. The welcoming smiles here, no matter who you approach, really make a difference. The entire staff, from waiters, to the diving team, receptionists, customer care, management, the spa ladies, the excursion gang, are all so helpful and caring. The covid measures were easy to follow and don't interrupt with the casual setting, and you only have to wear a mask in closed areas and on line for the buffet, for example. The island was exceptionally clean and the gardeners were constantly planting new trees and working on display. Food was great, with a large choice as usual, although there could be more vegan options. The all inclusive is really wroth it if you want extra activities and not to worry about snacks and alcohol. The spa, as usual, wow. Great staff, and the Balinese message pure, heaven every time. Can't wait to come back (actually already working on that). The only non smiley face i would mention, was by the doctor on the last day, checking for PCR, she was probably the least communicative in the whole team. But otherwise, Vilamendhoo is the full package!

No matter on the greatness of the island, the beach and the water. Housing was lovely and the beach infront of the villas was more than relaxing. Dive center is on of the best I have seen - so far. Dive sites are great and the feeling of the guides for the nature, the diver and the "right time" is fantastic. The buffet food is good. We enjoyed more the special restaurants like ASIA WOK.

We had a perfect time on Vilamendhoo! Very clean, very good attention to corona-rules, more than friendly employees and a great house reef! Good restaurants and diving center, saw whale-sharks, black tip sharks, turtles, rays and all the colourful reef life!
