The island is beautiful and so is the resort. The staff are friendly and welcoming too. There are a number of resort run restaurants but the food choice and quality was poor. The food is highly pretentious at the buffet and not particularly suitable for a young child. I can't prove it but I spent the second and third day...

Having travelled to the Maldives previously I can say this hotel/island is fantastic. Really good service from everyone on the island and so much to do in such a small area. The food is fantastic and is a perfect honeymoon or romantic destination. From the executive chef to the staff all around the island everyone was friendly and polite yet...

This really is a paradise island, the water is so clear & warm and the sand so white! The food is also amazing (we were on a half board option so ate in the Vela restaurant for breakfast & dinner and were able to choose which restaurant we ate in for lunch). The food options in Vela were plentiful and...

Exactly like the pictures... Great scenery, views, service, facilities, food & climate One of the most beautiful places I have ever visited - Can't wait to go back! Only 30mins from Male but you still have that Indian Ocean isolation feel

OMG! This is the best ever holiday of our life! Service is extra brilliant! Dining is out of this world! For a little island, they go through great lengths to ensure the food and presentation is 5*s! Hats off to them! We just spent a week there, and were blown away! Beautiful island, beautiful turquoise blue waters , beautiful weather,...

Everything about this place was amazing. From the moment we got to the airport until we left. The velassaru desk is right outside the exit gate at the airport and staff await you. Within 10 mins we were on the comfortable speed boat for a 20 min ride to the island. The ride was smooth, we got some cold water...

My wife and I were lucky enough to already have spent four days at another resort in the Maldives before arriving at Velassaru. Upon arrival at Velassaru it improved to another level. What to say about the resort. Firstly what struck me was the quality and friendliness of the staff, we all say that people are a companies best asset...

My wife, one year old son and I recently visited Maldives, Velassaru resort. Prior to the booking, we had a lot of hesitation while researching all the resorts...it was not an easy choice as man does not go often to Maldives and wants to get as much as possible from the money spent. I believe that we made an excellent...
