I had travelled to the Maldives before but my partner had not and we choose Velassaru. We were not disappointed everything in this hotel is top class from the food, the understated service and the incredible room and it's great location. Close enough to the airport not to be a drag with an outstanding lagoon! The manager welcomed us with...

This was our third trip to the Maldives and the third resort we've stayed at. This island is closer to Male than the other islands visited - so we didn't need a sea plane just a short speed boat transfer. Crystal clear waters and first class service. We spent much of the time on the beach and in the sea...

We stayed at Velassaru from 12th to 26th November 2016, in a Beach Villa with pool on the "Indulgence Package". I don't want to use the word "amazing" because I seem to hear that everywhere - but I haven't really got an alternative to use. The place is incredibly relaxing, the staff are always prepared to go out of their...

An amazing island. The water bungalow we stayed in was amazing. Waking up to the view of the ocean every morning and having your own private pool, it couldn't get any better than that. Our entire trip went extraordinarily well. The island's food was delicious, especially the beach satay meal. The activities were also very enjoyable, the jet skiing was...

This was our third visit in the Maldives but first visit at Velassaru. We were very pleased with how the handler took care of us from reception to departure at the airport. Only 25mins from Male airport and straight to our room. Beaches were clean and amazing. Staff were fantastic. A special thanks to Chef Wasantha who helped with my...
