Poor home reef. There are several lonely corals. No turtles, no sharks. Except for this, everything else is very good. Perfect service, decent food, great accommodation. Wide selection of watersport equipment.More

Located north from Male, within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll, Velaa Private Island brings a new meaning to "private moments" in the Maldives. Here the essence of Maldivian culture, lifestyle and landscape meets limitless opportunities, where no request is too much, and each guest will ultimately feel that this is their own private island. Comprising 43 private villas and 2 four-bedroom residences fusing local materials and contemporary flourishes, each retreat offers a generous outdoor space and private pool. While 18 villas are built over water, the Romantic Villa is the only exclusive villa that is reached by boat. Our Residences are the only 4-bedroom residences in Maldives, accommodating up to 10 people offering elegant contemporary design and 1,350 SQM of interior and exterior space, incl. 2 terraces, a pool and a courtyard. For the epicurean, Velaa Private Island boasts the culinary consultancy of Michelin-star chef Adeline Grattard from Paris, and the most extensive wine cellar in the Indian Ocean. With 3 restaurants, 2 bars and 1 wine cellar, every palate is sure to be satisfied. The spa, in addition to featuring exclusive My Blend by Clarins products and treatments, will showcase the first 'snow room' in the Maldives and comprises six secluded treatment rooms nestled over the island's turquoise lagoon. Two cloud-shaped reclining treatment pods by Klafs and Sha will also be featured in the spa, which slowly sway and cradle guests into deep relaxation. Golf enthusiasts will be treated to the only Short Game Golf Academy in the Maldives. Designed by professional golfer and two-time Masters champion Jose Maria Olazabal, golfers can craft their game in the middle of paradise.
