Maldives is Maldives and hard to go wrong .. But we were specifically looking for resorts which were a close boat transfer away. Velassaru fits that.., and is am incredibly beautiful resort.

Amazing hotel. We stayed in the water villas an the view was incredible, very private and quite. It important to say that the island in close to the trash island so some of the villas have a terrible view of a smoke. Make sure when you make your reservation ask for a good view and not to the contaminated little...

Well, our thoughts about the hotel, its beachs, staff, bungallows, water sports, spa and all the atmosphere was so good, that we leave the...

The bathtub is big and located in...

Attention to detail, thoughtful amenities, an ever smiling and welcoming staff--all made for a vacation of a lifetime. If you need to decompress, this is the place. You can feel the worries and stress dissipate with...

While we enjoyed the Ocean view accommodation the deluxe rooms are not the best! Room 130 has aircon which is under-powered and generators/units running at the back side creating a constant humming sound. Staff are excellent and views are awesome but be wise in choosing your accommodation type. Food is good but expensive and not many outdoor recreation activities or...
