Quite simply stunning!

Just returned after spending what has to be the very best 10 days of what I can only describe as the perfect piece of paradise set in a stunning location. If you are looking for the ultimate in relaxation holidays this has to be very high on your list of choices. We're a couple in our early 60s and booked a 10 day stay at Velassaru. We picked this island after doing some research on YouTube as we wanted somewhere fairly small, with a low-key and relaxing vibe. This resort is part of "Small Luxury Hotels of the World", and that description is certainly accurate. We elected to pay the additional charge for their all-inclusive package (what they refer to as their "Indulgence" package) as we had heard reports that food and drink can get very expensive in the Maldives and we didn't want any nasty surprises come check-out time. We selected a deluxe beach villa with pool in a quiet location (room 216 to be exact). The room was superb with really great air-con, a huge TV (that only got used on the one day we had rain and cloudly conditions), and huge and comfortable king size bed. Our villa had an outside bathroom which was really nice. Having a warm shower out in the sunshine after getting out of bed was certainly a different experience, but very nice indeed. The island can only be described as simply stunning. It has the quintessential light coloured sandy beaches, palm trees on the shore line, and crystal clear and calm warm waters. The whole island is small and you can walk the entire beach line in around 20 minutes with ease. The place is very well maintained by a team of gardeners and maintenace people (see later on this), and all of the restaurants are very well staffed, clean and welcoming. Getting there from the airport was just a short 25 minute boat ride. We were greeted at the airport arrivals gate by a Velassaru rep and quickly escorted to the waiting boat. One big advantage of the boat transfers is gthat they can operate both night and day, so fitting in with your flight plans doesn't incur a lengthy wait at the airport. We ate in all of the restaurants, but our favorite was Teppanyaki which is Japanese influenced serving some of the best food I have ever tasted. The "Kani Salad" for a starter was amazing. My only critisism if I had one is that the food portions are huge, and on several occassions we simply skipped the starter, or asked for a smaller portion. Of course, if you just go for the self-serve buffet evening meal in the Vela restaurant, then you can have as much or as little as you like. Here, the buffet options were highly varied with plenty of choice including salads, curries, fish and most everything else you could wish for. The Maldivian style curries are superb! We did have a small issue in our villa when we noticed the toilet starting to block, with some concerning gurgling noises after flushing. We popped into reception after breakfast the following morning and reproted the issue. We then returned to our villa which took around a 10 minute leasurely walk, where we were greeted by the assistant maintanance manager exiting the villa who confirmed that there was a problem and that it would be fixed quickly. Within the next half hour, one of the maintenance staff came round to inform us that the problem had been sorted and to let them know if there were any forther issues. A superb level of service, and shows they genuinely care for their guests and want you to have the best experience they can offer. For us, having a villa on the beach was perflect as we are not strong swimmers. Personally I would not go for the over water villas as I prefer walking into the sea from a beach, whereas in the over-water villas you have to descend a short ladder down into the water. But that's just my personal preference. So, would we stay at Velassaru again? Absolutely yes if we ever get the opportunity to do so again in the future. It's a long flight from the UK, but well worth the effort just to experience the location. Overall a superb holiday with absolutely no negatives to speak of and lots of memories to look back upon. Thank you to the staff for making this such a wonderful experience which we will never forget.

Relaxing, luxurious

Fabulous luxurious island. Nothing was too much trouble, staff so helpful, polite & friendly. The food was really excellent! I couldn’t stop taking photos of the beach. Watching the fish & spotting a massive ray from the spa… magical memories

Unforgettable stay in paradise

After my stay on a local island for a surf trip I knew I couldn’t leave the Maldives without visiting Velassaru again. This was my fourth time on the island but the first time without the family, although it was an amazing holiday once again and showed me that Velassaru is perfect for solo trips as well. As always I stayed in a Deluxe Bungalow with plenty of space, the open air shower as a highlight and the sea right in front of the door. There are a lot of possibilities to lay at the beach all around the island. Either in front of the rooms with more privacy or at the pool area. Although it is a small island, it definitely has everything you need. A special big thank you to the Immersion and Glide Center with Carmen Dressler and her amazing team which is letting dreams come true. From the well organized snorkel and scuba diving trips which allow you to see turtles, sharks, stingrays and a lot more to the great offers of watersport activities, everyone will find something to try out. The staff is very caring, helps with everything and makes sure to always give you a safe feeling. Another highlight on Velassaru is definitely the culinary aspect with an outstanding quality of the food in all of the five restaurants. This time I spent most of the evenings in my personal favorite restaurant, the sands restaurant which is directly at the beach and creates a very calm and peaceful atmosphere. The staff is doing a very good job, especially supervisor Imran who constantly did an excellent service and always made several reservations possible. There is one thing which impresses me each time again. You never get the feeling of a crowded place, even though the occupancy is very high. All in all it was an amazing stay once again and I am sure it won’t be the last…

Great vacation on Velassaru

We had our nice vocations in Velassaru Maldives second half February – beginning March 2023. This was really magic days in beautiful island between snow-white sands, nice green tall palms, five-star testy dishes, friendly service. This is our first experience with Maldives and I spent much time for looking info about Maldives resorts. After checking thousands pages in Internet and Telegram we chosen Velassaru. This was 100% goal. During all days we had enjoyed our rest. Nice snorkeling in domestic island reef gives us many imaginations about reach deep ocean lives. Unbelievable ! So many small and big fishes… There are 3 families if Triger Titanes 😊 This fish familes is my friends now 😊 Reef is alive and growing. Lagoon is friendly and protect island from outside ocean big waves. Swimming is very comfortable. Resort has 5 restaurants. Main Chef Mr.Wasantha organized amazing net of 5-starts restaurants on this small island. His team works hard and well for preparing best dishes for guests. We visited all restaurants and enjoyed cousins in each of them! Chef Wasantha and his team were amazing. Also I had private Big Fish Fishing. Ms Carmen (Head of Diving center) helped with organization. Our Team: Captain Maruuf, Sapi and Ibragim assisted me in this nice super fishing. We had caught 30kg’s Seaboat Fish (kind of marlin) ! This was incredible!!! These experiences will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you very much my TEAM for this!!! This fish was prepared by Chef from VELA restaurant! Was very delishies! Thank you very much! I hope I will once I will revert to Velassaru !!!
