We stayed in Vellassaru for 4 days based on the reviews read on Trip Advisor. It was truly a very good choice and we agreed with most of the reviewers especially on the prompt pre-booking services, high standards of cleanliness on the island. Food was fresh, non-oily and delicious. We liked the gym but there were limited books in the...

I was comparing mostly all the 5 star resorts in Maldives before I chose Velassaru by Tripadvisor reviews, affordable price, food quality, location and service. And now I feel very proud of choosing Velassaru as my vacation destination. The location which took us only 20 minutes from Male international airport by speed boat was just perfect for me, since my...

Please do not go by the lovely photographs shown in their website. The place is actually much more beautiful and exotic which can only be captured by the eyes. Truly a WOW. How I wish trip advisor should have a option of 7 star rating. My experience right from the airport greeting to the good bye was more than luxury...

Beautiful resort with beautiful grounds which are well-maintained. Excellent service. I was there with my husband for our honeymoon last year, May 2013 and I'll just summarize the resort into pros and cons. Pros: Well-equipped gym (with apples and bottled water provided) which is very under-utilized by the guests. So whenever I visited the gym, I always had the place...

I must have been too lost in Velassaru to not leave a great review. We stayed at the beachfront bungalow (facing the lagoon side) and just steps away from the beach, where we see harmless white tip sharks coming to the shoreline every morning (around 7am) to have their breakfast of little fishes. Room is spacious and our little one...

Situated in a small island at the Indian Ocean, walking around the area takes only 10-15 minutes to complete one round trip. The resort offers different room types and we have chosen one that is closed to the beach. The room is built with a mezzanine to separate the sitting room from the bedroom and a big garden area, which...

This place is amazing, the facilities, the island, the service... Everything is perfect! It is expensive, as any 5* hotel in Maldives but trust me, it is worth every cent. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow and it was great, very spacious and less than a minute walk to the beach. The spa has the best pool ever, you will...

We chose Velassaru because of its location near Male, meal packages, and beautiful beaches. It's a pretty awesome place and I thought that it deserved a proper, detailed review. Here you go! On arrival we were picked up at Male airport. We had to wait 30 minutes whilst other passengers arrived but there was a coffee shop that sold rocket...
