Velassaru Maldives



Our Verdict

An island of pure white sand surrounded by azure water, Velassaru Maldives is an exhilarating 25-minute speedboat journey from Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. This sleek resort combines an affordable Maldives travel package with the very best the Maldives has to offer; contemporary minimalist style rooms, superb beaches, turquoise sea and lush jungle. The chic villas feature luxury facilities and amenities including rain showers and top quality linen. Dining options include Sand, the oceanfront food theatre with a hot stone grill and Japanese food with a twist at Teppanyaki, amongst others. Oversized daybeds and soft beanbags make Fern Bar the ultimate laid-back beachside hangout.

Snorkelling in the beautiful lagoon will yield all kinds of wonderful surprises including baby sharks and colourful reef fish, perhaps even turtles. Those who want to venture deeper into the blue can try an excursion with Immersion Dive Centre, or perhaps take a diving course. There are plenty of watersports available too at Glide including wakeboarding and knee-boarding, not to forget parasailing, catamarans and kayaks. When you’re looking for a cheap holiday tour to Maldives, try Silver Sands Travel for the very best unbeatable rates with no compromise on luxury.

Resort Details

Secluded but not isolated, Velassaru is located on a private island, just 25 minutes away from Male’ airport. It is a distinct resort, inspired by local architecture revealed in teak, stone, thatch and livened by simple colour tones of bright green, vivid turquoises and refreshing yellows.

Velassaru has 129 room both overwater and on the beach, all fitted out with all modern conveniences and featuring high vaulted ceilings and panoramic walls invoking a sense of space. Some of the rooms feature infinity edged pools over the ocean, glass floors and butler service round the clock.

Five dining venues and two awe-inspiring bars exhibit imaginative texture and style; from gourmet Mediterranean and classic European grill infused with Asian flavours to Teppanyaki over the lagoon, the world’s finest cuisine is presented to you at Velassaru. Maldives inspired Asian and continental fare and a buffet restaurant are also amongst popular favourites. A beach front bar and a sunset bar add to the experience of fine dining at this private island in Maldives. For those who wish something different, romantic private dining experiences as well as 24 hour in-villa dining options are also available.

Velassaru offers a range of exciting experiences both for the indulgent and active guests. The infinity pool is set on the beach giving you panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, wellness is complete with an overwater spa with a yoga pavilion, as well as a fitness centre with a personal trainer. A range of excursions including several snorkelling experiences and tennis are also available. Of course a stay in the Maldives will not be complete without great diving and water sports activities.
