Stayed here last December for 5 nights and booked via agoda. I sent numerous emails to Velassaru for my various queries regarding the hotel, airport transfers etc and the replies were always prompt. Our grand experience began as soon as we were picked up from the airport. We were treated as royalty right away. We had our own personal attendant... More

I've been to Velassaru Maldives with my wife for 3 days, Everything starting from the second we arrived to airport we found one of Velassaru Hotel staff waiting for us, the speed boat which is new and clean was ready waiting for us welcoming us with chilled water bottles and cold refreshing towels, we arrived 6 hours earlier to check-in...

Having left Sri Lanka we flew to Male for a four night stay on Velassaru. We travelled by speedboat to the island where we were shown to our bungalow on the beach. When we opened the door to our rooms it was amazing. There were comfortable chairs inside, a settee outside on the patio, an indoor shower and also an... More

"Complimentary continental breakfast served at Chill Bar from 08:00 - 10:00 hours" Why would a couple on their honeymoon wake up early every day just to be able to have some breakfast, because after 10:00 you will not get any. If I wanted to set the alarm early and be punctual I would have stayed back home. Too strict timeframe... More

The resort and the island are just paradise: pure natural beauty is coupled with luxurious facilities, beating any high-end hotel you might have visited for work-related purposes so far in your life. What makes the resort really special is the level of service you receive, from the moment you are picked up at the airport. The island can host ca.... More

My partner and I stayed here for 4 full days in mid march. After arriving to male airport, we were immediately greeted by friendly staff and were walked to our very decent somewhat fancy yacht! After a short ride from male, we arrive at this paradise and were greeted by even more friendly staff who kept track of all the... More

If you have the tiniest spark of romance in your soul there is one place on this planet you must visit. It will involve planes and a boat but once there, you will be in paradise. The fabulous Maldives resort of Velassaru, to be precise. We have just returned from island-hopping to the resort, which is smaller than some in... More

It just cant get better than this. I am writing this review a good 3 long years after I had visited Velassaru for my honeymoon. But browsing through Tripadvisor one day, I just felt that it would be a crime not to write about this marvellous place on earth. So we landed in Maldives and started our journey to the... More

We undertook quite a lot of research about this resort, having rejected quite a few options that were seen to be "the place to stay". We have stayed in quite a few rustic paradise hotels in recent years and the novelly had begun to wear off. We wanted somewhere more cutting edge and glamorous. From the moment you arrive, Velassaru... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Champagne flute anchored in the sand, stem kissed by the tide. Mid-ocean niches of intimacy enshrouded in tropical greenery. Freedom of youth explored, temptations given in to. Off-shore ocean sunset aboard a traditional sailboat. Spa above the water, by the ocean's edge. Moonlit vows, eye to eye with your best intentions laid bare. Maldives water bungalows, villas and suites perched atop the lagoon or nest on the sands. Open-plan, minimalist design frees up the flow of space, revealing uninterrupted seascapes of the Indian Ocean from your bedroom. On your villa's terrace, lose yourself in prolonged romance for the entire night. ... more   less
