Velassaru is outstanding in some ways, such as the beach is so pure white, which although in Maldives is one of the top few, the sand there were so soft and fine. I love the interior design, I chose to stay in the normal beach villa without private pool nor sea view, but when I got there, I was totally...

We just got back from five nights and overall it was very good and we really enjoyed it. Hotel is good, sea is amazing and the vibe of the place is very relaxing. The food is good but could be better as at times it's not up to the standard you would expect by such a place. Overall would recommend.

To sum up my experience about Velassaru - I just have one thought - When will I come back? I had carried out a lot of research about the Maldivian islands and finally zeroed in on Velassaru for my honeymoon. We had stayed for 3 nights 4 days during mid February. We were picked up at the male airport on...

The Velassaru resort is a 20 minute speedboat ride from Male Airport. White Sand and turquoise sea, it is a heavenly place to be. We had a Deluxe Bungalow which was great. The Lower Numbers are better situated. The Bungalows over the water are more expensive and bigger but or a couple, ours was great. We had half board which...

I enjoyed the stay there actually.The staff fetched us from airport to resort. Expensive food but taste good. Clean rooms and the house keeping staffs were polite. Some staffs at restaurants are not that friendly. No honeymoon surprises for us though we indicated that we were on honeymoon. So sad. Pros: very near to airport. Crystal clear water. No stingrays...

Our fourth trip to Velassaru was as good as our first. We thoroughly endorse all of the positive reviews on this site. Having visited two other Maldivian islands before .. Velassaru is in a different league. We want a fresh water pool, 3 or 4 A la carte restaurants as a variation for dinner and a beautiful beach all round,...

We spent nine nights at Velassaru in Feb/March and it was pretty much the perfect holiday for us. The island is small enough and brilliantly laid out to be intimate (a 15-minute walk around the island on the beach) but large enough to be interesting, with a variety of activities, excursions and events if you wish to be busier. Retaining...

We spent 3 nights at Velassaru in February. We are senior travellers and although the resort caters for families as well we found it to be a paradise. It is so well spread out on a tiny island that you can enjoy the peace and quiet if you want or enjoy the chill out tunes at the bar by the...
