When you think about the Maldives, luxury, water villas, crystal clear waters and privacy in remote islands are the first things that comes to mind. This is exactly how Velassaru Maldives is. So if you want the full Maldivian resort experience, Velassaru Maldives is the perfect place for  you. 


What we love the most, is definitely our water villa. These are what the Maldives are known for, and the water villa at Velassaru is exactly how you’ve imagined it to be. We really enjoyed the direct access to the crystal clear water. Each villa is equipped with two pairs of snorkeling gear, so you can go snorkeling whenever. Velassaru Maldives is the perfect place for people who would like the luxurious Maldivian resort experience. It is all about luxury and privacy.


As mentioned earlier, the resort is on a remote island away from civilization. This might sound boring after a while, but not Velassaru Maldives. They have plenty of facilities and activities to choose from, so there is always something new to do and explore every day.

Velassaru Maldives has 5 different enticing dining venues, all with different types of kitchens, so whether you prefer Italian, Asian, Mediterranean or some good old international favorites, Velassaru Maldives has something for your tastebuds. Their breakfast buffet offers a large variety of dishes both international and Maldivian. You MUST taste their freshly made waffles and crepes! They were absolutely delicious!


When you feel like having a drink or to simply relax, Velassaru Maldives has two fantastic bars; Chill Bar and Fen Bar. Chill Bar lives up to its name, it is very chill!. It is a large sundeck, which is perfect for ‘’chilling’’ or relaxing while enjoying the Maldivian sun. Fen Bar much bigger than Chill Bar, and is located close to the other restaurants. Fen Bar is also very ‘chill. They have these beanbags by the sand, oversized daybeds and really comfortable hammocks! Fen Bar is right beside their beautiful infinity pool, making it a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun.

For the gym addicts or those who just wants to break a sweat and burn off some of the calories you’ve consumed from indulging in the delicious cuisines, do not fret! Velassaru has a fitness center, tennis court and a complimentary sunset yoga class, 3 times a week (17:30 - 18:30).

If you’re more for water activities, they offer a complimentary morning cruise and guided snorkelling tours. If you prefer snorkeling by your own, each villa is equipped with 2 pairs of snorkeling gears, so you can snorkel whenever you want to! They also offer a huge variety of watersports activities such as water skis, wakeboarding, windsurfing, parasailing and much more. For those who wants to explore the underwater wonders, Velassaru Maldives has a PADI-certified dive school, so you can take your diver’s license while on the island.

For those who simply wants to relax, Velassaru Spa has more than 10 water treatment rooms for your service! As I mentioned before, there is plenty of things to do at the resort.


We stayed in one of Velassarus Water Villas. It was absolutely breathtaking! The villa was just how we imagined that it would be; over-water, sun terrace with direct access to the ocean and nothing less than pure luxury. As soon as we came in, we immediately spotted the large windows giving us a view of the ocean. It is perfect for viewing the sunset. It was a spacious 112sqm Villa, with a huge living room, LCD tv, DVD player, Minibar, Tea- and coffee-making facilities and a huge bathroom with L'Occitane bath products! The villa screamed luxury at first sight.

When we weren’t enjoying laying in out huge comfortable bed watching tv, we spent our time out at the terrace equipped with sunbeds and a huge sofa. We loved the direct access to the ocean so much, that we started each day out with a morning swim!

It was such a luxurious experience. It is exactly how you imagine it would be when you see pictures of water villas in the Maldives! We really enjoyed our stay.


The resort is on a remote island located in South Malé approximately 25 minutes away from Malé International Airport.


The resort has a service team at the airport, to escort their guest to their speedboats upon arrival.

As soon as we arrived on the island, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and upon check out, they make sure to bid their guest farewell as well. We really liked this about Velassaru Maldives. This showed us how much they value each and every guest.
