Situated in a small island at the Indian Ocean, walking around the area takes only 10-15 minutes to complete one round trip. The resort offers different room types and we have chosen one that is closed to the beach. The room is built with a mezzanine to separate the sitting room from the bedroom and a big garden area, which...

This place is amazing, the facilities, the island, the service... Everything is perfect! It is expensive, as any 5* hotel in Maldives but trust me, it is worth every cent. We stayed in a deluxe bungalow and it was great, very spacious and less than a minute walk to the beach. The spa has the best pool ever, you will...

We chose Velassaru because of its location near Male, meal packages, and beautiful beaches. It's a pretty awesome place and I thought that it deserved a proper, detailed review. Here you go! On arrival we were picked up at Male airport. We had to wait 30 minutes whilst other passengers arrived but there was a coffee shop that sold rocket...

Absolutely perfect. Can't fault it at all. We were so sad to leave. The rooms, food, service were all perfect. We were there on our honeymoon and couldn't have chosen a better place. Loved the Italian restaurant and the sunset cruise was really romantic. Great snorkelling and scuba diving, the team there were very professional. We would highly recommend Velasuru!!!

Just returned from our second visit to Velassaru and thoroughly enjoyed it. Since our last stay in 2011 the resort had undergone several changes which, in our opinion were for the better. We opted for a deluxe villa again as we like the space and split level aspect, giving somewhere to sit outside the bedroom area. Our villa was on...

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...
