Velassaru

The moment you step into this chic, ultra-stylish resort, nestling on a secluded palm-shaded coral island, you will truly feel you have left the world behind. The beautiful Velassaru Maldives, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World group, strikes a perfect balance between breathtaking natural surroundings and the most impressive of modern amenities. Despite being one of the smallest of the Maldivian luxury islands, it provides everything you could possibly want for an enchanting island escape.

Sense of Space

One of the main factors contributing to Velassaru's beauty, and to its sense of openness and space, is its gorgeous expansive beach, swathed in the softest of white sand, and not affected by erosion as in many Maldivian islands. Stretching out as far as you can see towards the shimmering blue and turquoise lagoon, it is host to blue herons stalking along the shoreline, crabs scuttling over the sands, and baby basking sharks venturing right up to the water's edge. Beside the beach is the exquisite infinity pool, one of the resort's stand-out features, flawlessly designed to give the illusion of blending with the ocean, with a sandy walk-in entry point, while inland, wooden walkways, lined with lush tropical foliage and a myriad brilliant butterflies flitting amongst the abundant colourful flowers, wind among the thatched resort buildings. 

 

Enticing Dining

An enticing array of dining options awaits you, including the romantic Sand, with candle-lit tables spread over the sands, offering seafood dishes cooked international-style on hot stone grills and live cooking stations. For many guests the top choice is Japanese Teppanyaki, on stilts over the water, where you can sit out on the deck  watching the sting ray and reef sharks, or sit at the chef's table watching the food cooked before your eyes. Vela and Turquoise are both set amid luxuriant greenery and offer an array of exotic menus, while Etesian is the place for gourmet Mediterranean cuisine in a stylish, elegant space. And the private dining options are pretty special too, including the acclaimed Private Satay Barbecue on the beach, with your own chef and waiter, or Island Escape, where you are transported with a luxury hamper by dhoni to a private secluded sandbank.

Magical Sea Life

Other ways to experience the magical marine life surrounding the island include snorkelling on the fabulous coral house reef, or making use of the Immersion Dive Centre for novice and experienced divers. The Glide Watersports centre offers jet skiing, kitesurfing and catamaran sailing, and excursions include night fishing and dolphin trips. A favourite is the Sunset Cruise, with canapés and champagne.
