Reservation

1

Our Verdict

This stylish retreat set amongst the glistening waters of Baa Atoll takes luxury to new heights. Private and intimate, the island measures only half a kilometre in each direction. Inside this tiny island paradise a world of luxury unfolds before your eyes. A Clarins Spa with snow room and cloud-shaped relaxation pods, a Teppanyaki tower with panoramic views, a Golf Academy, rock-climbing and archery; expect the unexpected at Velaa Private Island alongside some classic touches such as the Cru vintage champagne lounge, dolphin cruises and private dining experiences. This is truly one of the jewels in the crown of our vacation packages to Maldives.


In the local language of Dhivehi, Velaa means ‘green turtle’. The stunning Maldives resort island was named after the turtles which make the pilgrimage back to their birthplace on the sand to lay their eggs. From the seaplane as you swoop in on arrival, you can see the shape of the island and water villas from above resembles the shape of a turtle.


Once inside, the turtle shell motif continues in occasional geometric motifs, with beautiful black and white images of sea turtles adorning the walls. There’s also a turtle hatchery and conservation programme for guests to discover.  Ask our trusted travel consultants for more information on packages to Maldives and Velaa Private Island.

Resort Details

Island for all the Senses

Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway. This unique destination was developed to embody the very best of this unique archipelago,
bathed by azure skies in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean.

Located in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometres north of Male, Velaa Private Island is an  exceptional luxury retreat where our guests are treated like royalty.

Velaa Private Island has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as the guiding principles while allowing the Indian Ocean to take centre stage. At one with nature, each of the private retreats is built using local materials, combining contemporary flourishes with interiors designed for sensory exploration.

 

OWNER'S STORY

There are many private islands in Maldives, but only very few of them are truly private, owned by one person. Velaa Private Island is such a case. The owner, Jiri Smejc, has spent countless weeks in Maldives both on holidays and while taking his business trips from Europe to Asia. The islands became his true passion: many of them being beautiful, but each of them coming short on some part of the visitor experience he valued. That's why he decided to build the Velaa Private Island. An island meeting his ideas what a luxurious private resort should be. An island keeping a real privacy for its guests but at the same time versatile enough to provide number of first-class enjoyment opportunities. After all, the owner is the one who will spend most time on the island and wants to enjoy it for years, not only for a week or two...
