We recently flew to Velassaru for our honeymoon and was completely blown away. We flew with BA and then travelled by boat which only took 25mins. We noticed other couples arriving by sea planes also, so you have the option of both. We stayed for 2 weeks on the Velassaru Indulgence package (all-inclusive) and can not recommend this package enough,...

Velasaru is beautiful island. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help all and do to feel like a king .The island is not boring and every night organized some entertainment / cinema, a disco club on the beach, an acoustic band and much more. The sea is beautiful and warm. The beaches are beautiful and surreal. I had...

We spent a week on Velassaru from 11th Feb.. lovely island, fab friendly staff and great food! We had a beach villa with pool which was brilliant (and particularly enjoyed by our 7 year old daughter!). We chose the all inclusive indulgence package which allowed us to eat in all the restaurants with no extra charge.. all the restaurants were...

Where to start with this resort... I researched a number of islands and resorts extensively for weeks on end before finally deciding upon Velassaru as the destination for my husband's 30th birthday trip. When selecting a hotel, the key factors for me are usually nice grounds and a large pool, direct beach access, a good selection of bars & restaurants,...

Beautiful island, staff who cannot do enough for you. Food in all restaurants was carefully prepared and a treat to eat. Our grandson who was with us has an allergy. The Chef made sure he had the feast of a lifetime at every meal. Accommodation was set a few yards from the beach, contemporary,spotlessly clean and plenty of room. Visiting...

From Male airport, the island is reached by a 30 minute speed boat ride. We had booked a chalet on stilts with its own private plunge pool. The staff are so welcoming and no request is too much trouble. Whiling days away beside the infinity pool or having a massage in the spa. The restaurants mean every taste is catered...

We had the pleasure of staying for 2 weeks at the Velassaru resort for our honeymoon. This place met and surpassed all our expectations. The staff are extremely attentive and friendly and they take the time to familiarise themselves with their guests and even know what your favourite beverages/foods are. The natural surroundings are of immense beauty and snorkelling around...

It was our second stay on this amazing island Velassaru. The island is an incredibly beautiful spot in the Maldives. We felt again like we arrived in paradise. It already started with the warm welcome at the airport and the arrival on the island. We booked a Deluxe Bungalow because we were highly satisfied with it during our last stay....
