Velaa Private Island Maldives

Located in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometres north of Male, Velaa Private Island is an exceptional privately-owned luxury retreat where guests are treated like royalty.  We like to think of it as a seriously sophisticated resort for grown-ups but with plenty on offer to keep younger family members entertained thanks to the provision of a childrens club and swimming pool.

With one of the finest golfing centres available in the Maldives, the largest wine cellar, exclusive shopping and an incredible spa - there's much more to staying at this resort than sun, sea and sand. 

Why Velaa Private Island?

Velaa Private Island is special for many reasons but here's what makes it really stand out for us:

For the gastronome

Dining options range from beachfront barefoot chic to fine dining - all set in stunning surroundings, and all with an emphasis on exceptional quality.  A must-visit is 'Aragu';  Velaa Private Island’s signature restaurant inspired by Michelin starred chef, Adeline Grattard.

Velaa Private Island also boasts the largest wine cellar in the Maldives.  Enjoy a rare opportunity to discover gems such as the 1956 Domaine de la Romanée Conti “Romanée Conti”, rare vintage Salon Champagne, and a centuries old fortified 1870 Blandy’s “Verdelho Solera”.  The champagne bar affords guests the chance to enjoy their favourite vintage, and discover some new ones under the expert tuition of the resident sommeliers.

For the health conscious

A range of sporting and other fitness activities are available - including tennis and squash courts so you can keep in shape throughout your stay.  For the adrenaline junkie there is a wide variety of high tech toys including a Weta trimaran, Topcat K1 catamaran, jet-skis and a Sea Bob. Paddleboarding, parasailing and kite surfing adventures are also available.

Accommodation

Designed and curated with privacy and comfort as the guiding principles, while allowing the Indian Ocean to take centre stage, each of the private retreats is built using local materials, combining contemporary flourishes with interiors designed for sensory exploration.

Options range from 1 to 4 bedrooms and private pools, glass viewing platforms, serene spa areas and the most sumptuous furnishings will mean that you'll want to try them all.

Make it extra special 

For us, it just has to be the Romantic Pool Residence.  Offering the perfect combination of privacy and romance, plus the services of a private chef and butler, it's our pick for honeymooners or those who are looking for a 'beyond luxury' experience.

Accessible only by boat, this ultra-private one-bedroom villa is suspended above the lagoon and offers uninterrupted views of the ocean.  All rooms open onto terraces, where the jacuzzi, pool, sundeck and sunken bath offer varying aspects towards the horizon.

Dine inside or over the water in a gazebo on its own jetty at sunset, or enjoy sundowners on the daybeds.  With a personal gym and spa treatment rooms inside the residence, there’s little reason to leave.
