Going on name alone, it’s not difficult to envision this exquisite five-star Indian Ocean resort as a haven of ultimate seclusion. Located in the Noonu Atoll, the spectacular Velaa Private Island boasts luxurious thatched-roof villas, pearly white-sand beaches and glistening azure waters, as well as unique spa facilities and a multitude of sporting activities in and out of the water.
A holiday to Velaa Private Island starts from £7,205 per person for a week’s stay, including flights and transfers, and for this you are booking more than just a holiday, you are getting a truly life-changing experience.
Perhaps the standout features of Velaa Private Island are the villas, they are amongst the largest in the Maldives and each thoughtfully and separately designed with specific holidaymakers in mind: families, couples, and larger celebratory groups.
A range of Water Pool Villas occupying either a sunrise or sunset aspect and Beach Pool Villas are geared towards all types of special occasions, while the Beach Pool House and Ocean Pool House are aimed at families. The largest Residences are reserved for romantic getaways and big groups. Each is beautifully decorated with rich dark wood, cool, crisp furnishings and remains empathetic to the natural beauty of this island nation.
Stylish accommodation at Velaa Private Island
Luxury Maldives holidays are as much about the eating and drinking as they are about relaxing and playing, and Velaa Private Island is nothing short of exceptional when it comes to its dining options. Athiri is the resort’s main all-day restaurant, boasting top-tier chefs from 14 nations who serve authentic homestyle fare. Avi is the casual poolside bar open long into the evenings, where your resident mixologist will whip up some pretty special drinks while you bask under a blanket of stars. Aiming to make Velaa Island a foodie destination in its own right, fine dining restaurant Aragu is where east meets west, with Adeline Grattard at its helm – a two-time veteran of Michelin-starred establishments in Paris and Hong Kong – who earned her very own star aged 32. Tavaru is the resort’s teppanyaki eatery and wine cellar, which is said to be the largest wine and Champagne collection in the Maldives located in an impressive 37-foot tower.
Velaa Private Island Maldives prices include access to a sanctuary that effortlessly blends modern, personalised treatments with ancient rituals and techniques – the ultra-luxurious Velaa Spa is a world unto itself. And if you thought you’d never see snow in the Maldives, think again; as well as a steam room and sauna, the spa is home to the only snow room within the archipelago. Alongside this haven of fire and ice is a gym with an array of excellent cardio and strengthening equipment, yoga and meditation programmes, plus a wonderful selection of wraps, scrubs, body and facial massage treatments and a hair and beauty stylist for a little extra pampering.
If high-tech water sports are on your bucket list, you’re in luck. Here, the resort offers some incredible experiences in the water including flyboards, hoverboards, electric foil surfboards and the latest Tandem Jetovator (you may want to Google that one). For those in search of something a little more subdued, there is also a wide range of towable water equipment available that is suitable for families, as well as fabulous snorkelling and diving opportunities. Back on dry land, you can enjoy the tennis courts, squash courts, climbing wall and football pitch for a little exercise burst. If that isn’t enough then perhaps a swing on the golf course designed by José María Olazábal might be on the cards?
