This was my first trip to the Maldives and I had high expectations going in, I'm glad to say my stay on velassaru exceeded expectations. Handily located only 25 minutes from Male on a speedboat, we were met at the airport and efficiently transported to the island, the downside of its location is that both Male and Rubbish island are...

It's THE most wonderful experience I had this year. I love everything about Velassaru. The staffs are friendly, very helpful. Our room get cleaned every morning and evening before bedtime. Fresh food everyday. Lovely environment and gorgeous place. How I love to go back there again. The not so good thing is... Vacation is always too short!! :D

We just came back from our honeymoon in Velassaru. It is indeed a paradise on earth. We stayed for 7 nights (3 nights in the water villa 421 and 4 nights at a water bungalow with pool 307). Both locations are of divine beauty. The sea has wonderful colors (a mix of turquoise, blue and yellow), the sand looks as... More

My husband and I took our first holiday in three years after having our child, and we could not have had a more perfect experience. The hospitality was amazing and the rooms beautiful! The beach is stunning and the pool right next to the ocean is gorgeous and perfect to lounge around. The food was delicious (highly recommend the Japanese... More

Fantastic outdoor bathroom. Service from the staff was extremely friendly and very attentive. Food was outstanding, all the restaurants provided a great choice of fish, meat, vegetarian. Breakfast was fantastic... More

My wife and I have just arrived back from the most sensational piece of paradise where we were privileged to spend 10 wonderful days. Forget any of the minor grumbles you read in other reviews, Velassaru could not be more exquisite . The staff, the villas, the food, the setting - absolutely everything - was as close to perfection as... More

My title explains it well. My wife, my little boy (2 years old) and me had the escape to the island last week. We stayed at Villa #111. Nice amenities, excellent services and all the staff are very well trained how to make you feel satisfied about the place. Well, it's quite pricey I may say- for 3 nights you... More

From start to finish I had a wonderful experience at Velassaru. It was our honeymooon and we wanted something that looked like paradise and somewhere which was quiet. Velassaru had everything we wanted, from great food in the main restaurant with a different twist of food selection everyday. An amazing outdoor pool near the lounge area, a great bar, with... More
