An escape into an exclusive oasis in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean: welcome to Velassaru in the Maldives. This luxury island resort, located a 25-minute speedboat ride from Malé airport, is a private paradise, featuring fine dining, indulgent spa treatments, world-class diving and snorkeling, and a little home-away-from-home just steps from the crystal clear waters. Guests may choose the accommodation of their dreams: from Deluxe Bungalows to Beach Villas and Ocean Water Bungalows to Lagoon Water Bungalows, each room provides luxury, privacy, and elegance - many with the option of a private pool for the ultimate hideaway. By day, enjoy yoga instruction, relax at the spa, explore the ocean, or simply sit back and soak in the incredible surroundings; by night, wine and dine at any of the five dining options and then dance the night away at either (or both) of the two luxury bars. Guests may also take advantage of the incredible location by partaking in the resort’s optional excursions, such as a seaplane tour, a sunset cruise, or a nighttime fishing expedition. After all, in this epicenter of paradise, anything goes.
