My boyfriend and I went to Velassaru in back February and returned a month later as we loved the place so much. Even though it has been months since we came back and life has been continued to be so busy, but I decided to take a moment to express my gratitude. My boyfriend and I had been apart from each other for more than a year due to Covid 19 and we decided to treat ourselves in dream destination-Maldives. So having a great time and making meaningful memories during this vacation was so important for us. And during our one month vacation we not only had an incredible time living our life to the fullest, but also we made life-time memories seizing every moment. In one word, Velassaru is out of this world. We stayed in Water Bungalow and Deluxe Villa. We were blown away by the level of effort from the entire Velassaru staff, from grounds crew to housekeeping to management. They provided impeccable service. So many smiling faces everywhere, it was extremely welcoming. The resort itself is just outstanding. It is super clean, bug free and surrounded by beautiful coral reefs. It is conveniently located near the wall of coral reefs where we had an incredible time diving multiple times. But I realized what makes Velassaru so special is the efforts of its crew. Especially, the management team of Marjorie and Mohamed; as well as , the resort doctor-Dr. Hassan delivered above and beyond level of service in making our stay at Velassaru extraordinary. Marjorie and Mohamed really took their time to listen to us and our story. And they seamlessly provided us world class experience with such attention to details. Dr. Hassan frequently visited and took care of us when we had sunburns and heat stroke. We felt so safe having Dr. Hassan as on-site doctor in resort. So I want to take this moment to thank Marjorie, Mohamed and Dr. Hassan for their world class service. We absolutely will return. We highly recommend this place to anyone who is planning to visit Maldives and making life-time memories.

Just posting from resort in last hours of being here A luxurious not big tropical island dedicated to velassaru hotel nice beach beautiful infinity bar and very kind staff We stayed in bungalow with pool for two night that was great spectacular view and accommodation and endless blue warm ocean with easy access that they offer us just we arrived 10 am and very soon than routine check in Snorkeling was fantastic but remember to wear shies too many coarse coral . We were here for our first anniversary and they scheduled to bring us and anniversary cake. Although they forgot!! They send it after we remember them two times after two days, but the cake was very delicious and beautiful . Our last two nights spent in deluxe villa that they provides for us freely upgrade from deluxe bungalow . honestly, the villa has noting to offer individually, but the resort has so moch incredible places and good sense to offer and we enjoyed very much. Evrey thing is so clean . At last i should say that rubbish island is no matter of thinking , we can't even find to see it.thanks too all velassaru kind team , we hope to visit this beautiful resort as soon as possible.

We had the most amazing experience at Velassaru, right from the pickup at the airport . We had the water pool villa which was truly luxurious. The best part of the resort were the impeccable restaurants and the fantastic menu’s from wagyu to foiegras !!! And the wine list and so on. The chill bar was our favourite for sunset , amazing spa experience , vlad the water sports and snorkel experience was professionally great. Overall a great holiday, the snorkeling around the property is not that great though and very Sandy so recommend the snorkeling boat trip which takes you to a nice reef wall where we did see some amazing turtles and sharks
