Hi forum, I am planning a trip next year to the wonderful Maldives. I last went in 2004 and stopped at veligandu in a water villa before the refurb. I loved this island, the food, rooms, atmosphere. I can't go diving as I have poorly ears but do love nice soft sandy beach on a pretty island. I would love to stop somewhere that is just as pretty as veli, but not has expensive, not to fussed on the reef, but food must be half decent. I am looking at going in may 2013, 10-14 days and will have £3000-£4000 ish as a budget for two including flights. Would rather ai, however good full or half board options would be considered. Not to fussed on the size of the island. Hope you can help.
