I felt like that Velaa deserved a proper review. Did my best. Hope you find this useful. While going to Velaa for my honeymoon, I’ve read an article that said: “When a cosmopolitan citizen of the world and an internationally-renowned elite architect come together and implement their vision of the perfect holiday paradise on a Maldivian island, then you can...

We spent with my family 5 nights in Velaa Private Island this April. It was quite difficult to get there because from Europe you travel almost whole night to Male International Airport and then you have to take a sea plane and travel another 45 min. But if you survive this long trip, you will be rewarded for the suffering... More
