Palm Villa
Ranked #1 of 3 Velidhoo B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 January 2012

Maldives are overall very expensive and you only see a beach and a palm tree. Staying at Palm Villa is not expensive, you get to know the local culture, they are serving great meals (Karin and Kartsten were both top-chef's in Europe), and they help you with everything.

The island is a typical local island, that's not an island you see on postcards. But it is great to know about the real Maledivians, they are very kind. There are a few cars on the island, so overall it is very quiet. A few meters from Palm Villa there is a beautiful Coral Reef. Even the tourist from the Hilton are coming to this reef because of it's beauty. We saw many fishes, turtles and even a Manta. Snorkling gear you can borrow from Palm Villa.

For a few dollars Karsten will arrange a boat trip to a real Robinson Crusoe experience. Then it is only you, the palm trees and the sand. A great experience.

Please write Karsten about the transfer to the island. When you are not a Maledivian it can be complicated, but they help you out. Transfers are possible from an water plane (expensive choise) to a local ferry (15$ choise). We did both and are both an unforgettable experience.

The rooms are great. They have airco and even an outside shower. The water of the shower is cold, but that's the only temperature you want staying in that climate :)

Must say it again: The food is unbelievable good and for a very sharp price.

Dear Adrian

It was a pleasure to meet you and your girlfriend Dominica at Palm Villa , and to be quite honest I think a friendly photographer angel followed you.
First time you went snorkeling you got the greatest shots of a Manta Ray one can possibly imagine - lucky you.
Thanks for the kind words , we hope to see you again sometime.

Karin and Karsten
