My fiance and I stayed here on July of 2014. It is a lovely resort located not too far from Male airport (~30minute ride by speedboat). The staff is simply AMAZING - helpful, fun, attentive. Food/dinning: One of the nicest experiences was dining at Tepanyaki restaurant. The restaurant itself is far away from the shore and established over the water.... More

The place is just Paradise! Very clean and calm island. The rooms are wonderful with private open top bathroom and very modern bedroom. Lots of activities that can be done for those into water sports. The food is great but make sure you buy the food package with drinks or it will be very expensive.If you arrive early, you will...

We went to Velassaru for our honeymoon in June this year and we stayed in a water villa (403). We absolutely loved everything about the resort. This was the first time in the Maldives for both of us so we can't comment on how this resort compares to other resorts in the region. The beach was picture perfect white sand,... More

I visited Velassaru this July (2014) with my wife for our honeymoon and it was amazing! We stayed in a Water Bungalow with pool. Τhe room was excellent, clean, with a Nespresso coffee machine and with a very nice bathroom where you could even see the reef from the bathroom window. The staff was very helpful, polite and friendly, and... More

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
