Angsana Velavaru Resort and Spa



Our Verdict

A scenic 40-minute flight from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport lays Velavaru or ‘turtle island’, set in the glistening waters of South Nilandhe Atoll. This is a Maldives beach resort like no other, offering a unique combination of two concepts in one resort. On the attractive main island the 79 Island Villas are scattered along the white sandy beach, surrounded by coconut trees and exotic greenery. One kilometre from the island, teetering on the edge of the coral reef, lies the 34 InOcean Pool Villas. As the name suggests, these water villas are perched over the stunning turquoise lagoon, right where the azure coral reef meets the deep blue ocean.

The round beach villas, topped with coconut thatch, feature original artwork by Christopher Hogan in keeping with Angsana’s fresh and young signature style as well as private gardens, LCD TVs and CD players. The contemporary two-storey InOcean Pool Villas feature infinity poolsin addition to luxury gadgets, as well as an upper tier ‘sala’ for in-villa spa treatments. Several restaurants and bars including an Italian gourmet restaurant within the InOcean Villa complex will delight epicureans and there’s even a cooking school where guests can learn how to prepare Maldivian dishes. The Angsana Spa, dive centre, kids club and marine conservation lab provide further entertainment options. Maldives holiday special packages like this are worth their weight in gold.
