We had 4 days at this fabulous resort. It was our first visit to the Maldives . We were met at the airport by a wonderful speedboat and staff and our experience of sheer luxury continued throughout our stay. The small island is as beautiful as the pictures show. The resort is relaxed and very peaceful.We had a double delux villa which was very well equipped and I particularly enjoyed the outside shower. The room was as cleaned and tidied twice a day.
The buffet breakfast was wonderful. So much choice. All of the restaurants served superb food and the chill bar was lovely at sunset,
All of the staff at the resort are friendly and helpful and they can't do enough for you to make your stay a pleasurable one. We loved the outdoor cinema and popcorn and the managers drinks party.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this resort to anyone. Worth a visit !

There's a special welcome during our arrival with smile and waving. A speedy check-in to villa with a welcome drinks. Wifi is accessible all over the islands. Staff gave us a mini tour and got us acquainted with room amenities.Beautiful room design and L'occitane bath products. Generous big servings of food and variety of choices.
Beautiful magical sunset. Would come back again and recommend to friends.

It was second time.It was good as the first time.the management did acknowledge our return .
The spa was amazing even out teenagers enjoyed too.
The menu of the lunch looked the same as last time this was not too good.
The dark point of this secind tine experience was the dive center.
The manager linda was extremely rude and unsincere.
My son started his discovery dive after 5 mins in the water he had to stop due to his sinus.
It was no offer to do it later or reimbursement. My husband had to ask for it which put us in a difficult situation..it was solved at the end with a discount but still my husband had to get upset in his holidays for asking something totally fair.
We booked a dive tje place we were taken were rubbish!!!!
So from our experience avoid diving there.
The rest of the staff are truly amazing and caring. Thank you all.

We stayed for 5 days at this paradise. Excellent rooms, amazing food, breath taking views and great service. 25 minutes boat ride from the airport. The outdoor bathroom is beautiful. We experienced both the beach and water villas and they were amazing. This place is luxuries from the minute you get out of the boat. We will hopefully be back soon.

We spend 7 nights in Beach villa. Our villa was very well appointed, spotlessly clean and serviced twice a day. Outdoor bathroom is a dream. We have a different surprises in the villa: bottle of wine, small bites, champagne on the beach.

The island were perfectly maintained and we spent our days barefoot. The water is so clear and the sand is so white. Walk around Velassaru takes 30 minets on the beach.

The food in this resort is simply delicious and in all the restaurants. Courteousness and friendliness of all the staff is just amazing.

Velassaru is love from the first minute you set foot on the island!
