A private villa hideaway awaits you at Velassaru Maldives. Whether you choose one that’s nestled among the gardens, on the beach or out in the lagoon, each villa feels like it’s in a world of its own, thanks to the surrounding greenery and privacy screens. You’ll be just a 25-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport, and Velassaru Maldives’ staff will accompany you from airport to island to make sure everything runs smoothly. You’ll be greeted with a chilled drink and refreshments to get your luxury stay off to a great start.
To turn your break into a truly blissful one, visit the resort’s spa. You’ll be able to unwind in one of the overwater treatment pavilions with a soothing Elemis skincare body or face treatment. There’s a therapy for every taste, from jet lag rejuvenation to a classic Swedish massage. Come evening, choose from one of the five restaurants serving every cuisine, including Japanese favourites and Latin American dishes.
Looking to explore the island? There are a wealth of excursions and activities to get stuck into. Explore the clear waters with a scuba diving or snorkelling session, where you’ll be able to get up close to coral reefs and varied marine life. Or, if that’s not your cup of tea, head to the GLIDE Watersports Centre. This place offers a range of exciting options, including wakeboarding, mono-skiing, stand-up paddle-boarding and ocean kayaking, as well as parasailing and underwater SEABOB trips.
The contemporary decor gives Fen Bar a sophisticated feel come evening. Sink into beanbags or comfy day beds, and sip on creative cocktails to a soundtrack of eclectic music.
Dine under the cooling shade of the palm trees by day and, come evening, dine on Turquoise’s candlelit deck. You’ll find European and Asian-inspired cuisines here.
Sample a Latin American-themed menu in Etesian’s sleek dining room or take your dinner to the sands, where you can enjoy dishes made using fresh Maldivian ingredients.
This ocean-front restaurant gives you views of the Maldivian sunset to accompany Pan-Indian Ocean speciality meals. Choose from the chef’s signature menu for an extra-special meal.
Indulge in fresh seafood with signature Japanese flavours at Teppanyaki. Pick between sushi, sashimi and juicy seared salmon, served right at the water’s edge.
The sunset is one of the main attractions at Chill Bar, as it’s perched on stilts over the Indian Ocean. You’ll find tapas-style light bites, cocktails and local beers here.
There’s a laidback vibe to Vela’s design and the international buffet is always delicious. Fresh local seafood and succulent imported meats are the stars of the show here.
