Jessica J TripAdvisor review

Just retuned from 10 nights at Angsana Velavaru in the Maldives with British Airways holiday. From the moment we arrived at Male International airport to the moment we departed 10 days later we couldn’t fault any part of our trip or the representatives from Angasana Velavaru who provided first class customer focus and service at all times. Transitioning to the island via seaplane and leaving again 10 days later, they had everything under control, and they were really well rehearsed in making sure that everything went like clock-work. The island itself was amazing with crystal clear water, white sands and above all, fantastic staff who made the holiday even more enjoyable. The beach front lodge was perfect and the restaurants, food, staff and atmosphere was all as expected from a 5 star resort and probably more! The island had the perfect balance of tranquility, activity and Maldivian beauty. The main focus for us was the 5-star diving and marine research centre. Whether enjoying the marine life that you could experience literally just off the shore from the beach or taking part in the many trips available to the house reef for snorkelling or the whale shark and manta ray day trip. The staff at the marine centre were a real credit to the island and they were genuinely interested in ensuring that we had a great experience at every opportunity including: – • Daily snorkelling experiencing the house reef coral marine life including many sightings of turtles, • Coral maintenance and helping to take part in coral conservation, • Off-island trip to see and swim with manta rays and whale shark, • Helping to learn to free dive and experience the coral ‘nurseries’ that were dotted around the island where they nurture new coral growth. • Scuba diving to the house reef where they took lots of photo’s and videos for us to enjoy. The daily feeding of the love birds was also very enjoyable, being up close to nature once again. This was something we also took part in daily, as each day the experience was different depending on how hungry the birds were! The ‘bird-man’ as we called him, was fantastic in ensuring that each visitor had their fair share, up to as many as 6-7 feeding birds perched on our hands each . A very special thank you to Angsana Velavaru for really caring about us and our trip to the island, the whole experience was first class and nothing appeared to be left to chance and the staff were always polite, helpful and a pleasure to talk to. We really miss the island and the people on our return to the UK!

Beautiful experience

Clean, beautiful and peaceful! Everything was great! The place, the people, activities, reception & food. Beach villa and ocean villa both are up to the mark. Scuba diving is the best! Friday nights are Maldivian nights on the land. When you’re here on Fridays, be sure to check it out. There’s local music, drinks and food.

The water house is very beautiful, the restaurant and reception service is good, especially the restaurant Totti service

Good food, great restaurant and bar staff but poor snorkelling inside the lagoon, though the free snorkel trip every morning to the outside of the reef was good. Rooms a bit dated and small due to the layout but good privacy onto our own section of beach. Excellent service from being met at Male and waiting in VIZp lounge

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We appreciate your positive comments about our restaurant and bar staff, as well as the complimentary house reef snorkeling trips. Your compliments on the excellent service starting from your arrival at Male and the VIP lounge are also greatly appreciated. Regarding your concerns, we apologize for any disappointment with the snorkeling inside the lagoon and the villa layout. Your feedback is invaluable to us as we continuously strive to enhance our guests' experiences. Nonetheless, we are glad to hear you enjoyed the privacy of your own section of the beach, despite the size of the villa. Thank you again for choosing our resort for your stay. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future and provide you with an even more enjoyable experience. Best regards, Ahmed Zahir General Manager
