Visited for 4 days with my husband, and it was wonderful, and would have loved to stay a few days longer. Snorkelling was fantastic, and the equipment was provided free. Happy hours at the bar meant alcoholic drinks weren't too expensive, food was very good and service was amazing, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Would definitely recommend.

Visiting Velassaru for the 2. time and I must start by saying, that the infinity pool is outstanding and not one of these small ones you often see. Regarding some construction which is going on in the middle of the island - it seems management are trying doing their best moving people to other rooms away from the noise. In...

WIth only a 25minute boat trip from Male, (knowing I get travel sick), Velassaru was a truly magnificent place. We stayed in the Beach Villa with Pool, only a stones throw from the golden sand beach and the amazing baby reef shark. Having the choice of 5 restaurants and with the help of the Indulgence package everything was perfect. We...

A true Paradise. We went to Velassaru to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and we were treated with so much Love and honour that we were truly touched. We had a Beautiful Anniversary Dinner on the Beach with Candles all around and a free photo shoot to mark the anniversary. We were then presented with a Silver Photo Frame with...

Our six night trip was to celebrate a significant birthday. The hotel ensured beautiful memories of the day itself. The staff were friendly but not intrusive: all gave the impression of being very happy working on the island. Food was very good and varied. Choices for all tastes. Our room (a deluxe beach villa) was very well appointed, with a...

We had been really looking forward to going to the Velassaru the reviews and pictures on TripAdvisor made it look amazing. When you get there the island is beautiful and the room we were given was very modern and a good size. Unfortunately there was a lot of works being undertaken on the island and especially within the vicinity of...

Lovely resort, well maintained and clean. The water villa is beautiful and spacious and well appointed and the view is fantastic if you face West. However,  compared to other resorts of equal quality that we have visited , Velassaru  did not impress us on its overall service and location.  It's proximity to the rubbish island, an industrial island for burning...

My husband and I spent five nights at this wonderful resort. It is a beautiful resort with great service, food and amenities that you would expect at any high-end resort plus a few bonus surprises. We were met at the airport and quickly jumped on a boat to the resort. Quick and easy 20 min ride to the resort to...

Where do I begin?... Visited Velassaru for 7 nights in December for our honeymoon. The whole experience is one I will not forget. From the extremely friendly staff to the beautiful food and drinks. I would recommend the indulgence package which is more expensive but then you do not have to worry about the amount of cocktails or food consumed....

I have been in Velassaru time back and now I just came from Fuschi that was top on everything, so I compare now with Velassaru and the price was bit too much, food was fantastic yes, but the island is small compare to others so its not much to do, in the Iru Fuschi they made a really nice party...
