Step into a world class Maldives beach resort where you’ll find a spectacular turquoise lagoon, stunning sunsets, romantic overwater and beachfront villas, and unbeatable dining. Velassaru is an ideal tropical getaway for couples or families looking to visit the bucket list destination. Just a 20 minute speedboat ride from Maldives’ International airport and you’ll be transported to the intimate, idyllic island.
The entire five star resort is navigable by foot and features a plethora of luxurious facilities. We loved our comfortable and modern beach villa boasting a refreshing private pool and dreamy outdoor bathroom. The main swimming pool is a perfect spot for a morning swim, afternoon cocktails, or sunset gazing and we highly recommend visiting their dive centre to pick up the complimentary snorekleng gear or booking an excursion to discover the abundant marine life in the Maldives.
Velassaru’s beach is one of the most beautiful we’ve seen in the Maldives. The stunning turquoise lagoon is brimming with live coral and schools of fish and you can’t beat the sweeping palms and long stretches of pristine white sand.
Dining experiences are a huge highlight of the resort and range from casual lunches at Turquise to mouthwatering teppanyaki, and gourmet fare served under the stars at Sand Restaurant. Service is consistently friendly and professional throughout the resort and staff are always on hand to ensure travel arrangements, restaurant reservations, and fun filled excursions run smoothly.
A great option for those looking for a stylish five star resort at the heart of the Maldives.
