Who says honeymoon is just intended for a couple? When we planned yearly vacation and put Maldives in our itinerary (one of our destinations), we never imagined to have a second honeymoon. We just simply thought it would be a beach leisure/activities with our son and a lifetime chance to visit this little beauty before vanished by global warming (based... More

We came to Velassaru on our honeymoon in August, and had just under a week here. We booked a Beach Villa with Pool, and it was worth every penny! The location is of course beautiful (our room avoided the view of the so-called "rubbish island" that some have commented on). Our room, 218, had a nice location just around the... More

Overall a good experience but marred by the sales assistants at the gift shop who refused to accept my US dollars due to it being "old". The sales assistant examined carefully every note, rejecting it if they are old, rugged and when she can't find any other fault, she told me she can't accept it cos it was printed in... More

A really lovely hotel, with beautiful white sands & crystal clear sea. Speedboat took about 25 mins from Male, so we were there in no time at all to be greeted by the staff waiting for us. After checking in we were taken to our Bungalow with pool, the first thing I noticed on entering was a stale smell of... More

We stayed in Velassaru for 13 nights in September 2013. Pros: - boatride from the airport is very short. - very friendly staff at all times - perfect beach and sand - except for the occasional cigarette butt that guests have left buried in the sand - which I don't blame the hotel for! - breakfast buffet - this was...

Highly over priced and under serviced. No free entertainment , an average meal cost somewhere between 180$ to 200$ without any alcoholic beverage. You will spend a daily average of 800$ a day on food and one activity. In the Caribbean island you pay l/5th of this 4 day trip for a full 7 days with full board and daily... More

For example, at arrival some guest were given orientation with visits to all the facilites in the resort, and others were given... More

My husband and I stayed on Velassaru for our honeymoon and had an amazing time. We had a beach bungalow with a private plunge pool. We had thought about going for a water villa but they were so much more expensive and I love being on the beach. Very happy with our choice. The bungalow was very comfortable. We loved... More
