Holiday description: 14 nights at the Vilamendhoo Island Resort & Spa with diving
Holiday Score: 10/10

We love Vilamendhoo which is why we’ve been there so many times.  For me the quality and variety of diving is excellent, while for my wife who likes to snorkel but is quite nervous in the water, the house reef on Vilamendhoo couldn’t be easier.  The food on Vilamendhoo seems to just get better every year, and they are always very accommodating with room requests etc.  This year because we are multiple repeat customers, they also treated us to a free lobster dinner on the beach with one of the management team.

As well as having some fantastic diving available, Euro Divers is extremely well run.  And they have enough boats running each day that there’s options for people of all levels.  We were fortunate to have a few days of very strong currents while I was there which led to some amazing outer-reef and channel dives.  Some dive centres would only cater for ‘all-levels’ so you wouldn’t be able to take advantage of this.

I’d recommend Vilamendhoo to anyone.  They have some of the best dive sites in the Maldives on their doorstep and have the facilities and options available to take advantage of them.  However, it’s not just a divers island.  The service from the resort was flawless – the food is excellent and there are a lot of options other than diving – a great house reef (for diving or snorkelling), water sports, excursions, sports centre and a beach that goes all around the island.
