The elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury captures the very essence of this unique resort. Velaa Private Island is the realization of a dream to create a super luxury, exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock to the island to nest and hatch. Resort design borrows from this theme - with turtle motifs as the colors and patterns of turtle shells pervade throughout the property.
Velaa Private Island offers 45 villas that are of the finest quality. The resort boasts the best service and food in the Maldives. Combined with an amazing selection of activities and powder soft beaches, Velaa Private Island is one of the most exclusive resorts in the World.
Activities and facilities such as a Jose Maria Olazabal Golf facility, an overwater spa with a snow room and cloud 9 room, a covered tennis court, squash courts, climbing wall, submarine, yacht rentals, wine tower, and a turtle nursery; elevate Velaa Private Island as a destination for guests looking for the finest things in life.
