Velaa Private Island
Republic of Maldives, Maldives
Velaa Private Island is an idyllic boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Being one of the most exclusive Maldivian resorts, it delivers ‘beyond luxury’ accommodation, atmosphere and facilities, with privacy and comfort as guiding principles behind its design. It impresses with over-water villas and residences on pristine beaches, as well as natural beauty.
The aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean; the azure blue skies; the combination of luxury and contemporary style with Maldivian nuances: this is a blissful haven where you will experience no less than above-and-beyond service.
The complete seclusion of Velaa Private Island does not mean compromising on opportunities for activity and five-star amenities. You are free to enjoy watersports, diving, yoga and fitness, and for lovers of golf, Velaa’s own PGA academy allows you to practise in paradise.
Each of the island’s restaurants offer fantastic cuisine such as Tavaru, where you have the unique experience of watching innovative chefs expertly create dishes on the Teppanyaki grill plate as you wait for dinner.
This ‘island for all the senses’ is located in the Noonu Atoll, in the northern Maldives. It’s an area famed for its diving and marine wildlife, including the sea turtles that share their name with the island.
As the nearest airport is in Male, 185km away, private transfer by seaplane is arranged, taking just 45 minutes.
