If you yearn for privacy in an exclusive hideaway this is the spot for you.
Velaa Private Island offers a bespoke holiday experience with numerous dining options and a comprehensive home-from-home feel with that extra touch of magic – endless ocean views and pristine beaches on which to languish the hours away. As far as romance is concerned, hotels don’t come much more seductive than this, making Velaa Private Island one of the most coveted destinations on the planet for honeymooners. Relax; enjoy the views, marine life and world-class cuisine, and indulge in spa treatments and holistic practices that will leave you thoroughly rejuvenated.
A sense of tranquillity descends upon you as you set foot off the seaplane onto this staggeringly gorgeous private island.
Exquisite landscaping, colonial-style buildings and gently attentive staff set the tone for what will undoubtedly be the getaway of your dreams. Velaa Private Island in the Maldives’ remote Noonu Atoll takes Maldivian luxury to another level. The exclusive resort caters to families and international jet-setters alike, thanks to an array of palatial villas, state-of-the-art water toys and luxury yachts, as well as the island’s kids’ club.
These detached one-bedroom beach-front villas are sumptuously appointed with mahogany louvered panels and exquisite textile details.
The two-storey Private Residence has four ocean-facing bedrooms accommodating up to 10 guests
Enjoy a wide range of water sports; curl up with a book from the library; fit in a round of golf on the nine-hole course designed by Ryder Cup winner José María Olazábal,or treat yourself to an indulgent few hours in the spa, complete with snow room for cooling off post-sauna and a Cloud9 machine to boost your sleep. For those with little ones, the kids’ club ensures that everyone gets to play and relax on a luxury holiday.
Despite Velaa’s remote location, the cuisine is as varied as it is impeccable. For pared-back, barefoot dining, Athiri serves unpretentious European and seafood dishes, while the Teppanyaki restaurant Tavaru, perched atop the three-storey wine “cellar”, serves stylish, Michelin-level innovative interpretations of the classic grilled menu. The overwater restaurant Aragu offers some of the finest fresh seafood you’re ever likely to sample.
We love Velaa’s responsible approach to the environment’s delicate ecosystem.
Guests can gain insight into Velaa’s efforts to safeguard the coral reefs here by scheduling time with the resident marine biologist, and by snorkelling or diving in Velaa’s hanging coral gardens where there’s the chance to adopt a coral through the Coral Restoration Project.
