Very nice and relaxing place. Small island with beautiful beaches. Viewing the sunset in the northernmost bar was phenomenal. The food is very good, and there are several restaurant alternatives available. Early restaurant booking is required though. The overall experience of the bungalows were mediocre. The layout was good, but there was a strong raw and moldy smell, probably from...

We stayed for a brief 3 nights/days and had an incredible experience. It's is easy commute from Male by boat, which for a short stay made a huge difference due to the very limited service offered by float planes necessary to travel to further away Islands. The staff were extremely efficient and helpful throughout, from service of the room/at the...

The staff was very helpful and also because of them we had a very nice vacation. Especially Jana,the manager from the bar was one of the best,that we met there. But also others were very nice....

There are a few room types available from the hotel but trust me, "Ocean Bungalow with pool" is strongly suggested. U'd never regret as this room type offer much unique 'couple experience' in Maldives. Don't forget to enjoy the amazing sunset while swimming on the room's private pool. Couple can spice up intimate romance outdoor without being noticed. There are...

We recently stayed at Velassaru for 3 nights to break the long journey home to New Zealand. The Maldives have long been on our bucket list, and we chose Velassaru based on feedback, and closeness to Male. We were not in any way disappointed - it was simply wonderful. Arriving in the middle of a thunderstorm and it's following tropical...
