Stunning Velassaru has stylish facilities, fantastic fine dining and exceptional service.

Velassaru’s glistening beach and bright turquoise lagoon create a serious ‘wow’ factor on arrival. The resort has a slightly younger vibe and is ideal for honeymooners and couples. Vela, the main restaurant, is the perfect place to enjoy dishes from the interactive buffet and live cooking stations. But it’s definitely worth trying the à la carte offerings which include the popular Teppanyaki, boasting an idyllic spot over the lagoon and serving Japanese cuisine with a creative twist, and Sand, where you can enjoy dishes inspired by the Indian Ocean on candlelit tables dotted along the beach.

There are also two fabulous bars. Fen Bar is cool and minimalistic with mood lighting and chilled music, and the place to relax with a cocktail and shisha. For drinks in a gorgeous setting, head to Chill Bar at the water’s edge and grab yourself one of the chic daybeds overlooking the ocean. Other facilities include a recommended watersports centre and snorkelling can be done directly from the beach.

The beach rooms at Velassaru have some of the biggest and loveliest indoor/outdoor bathrooms. Deluxe Bungalows are individual single-storey buildings a few metres from the water, with a raised sleeping area. Sleek Beach Villas are thatched cottages facing the beach, with little extras such as a wine chiller. There’s also the newly refurbished Deluxe Villas, a choice of villas with pools, and beautiful Water Villas on stilts over the ocean. 

Kuoni Insider

Velassaru is one of my favourite resorts. The main bar area is really funky and you can relax in the evening with a cocktail and shisha. The food was delicious and the lead-in rooms were very comfortable, modern and spacious – I particularly loved the bathrooms here. There was a stunning oceanfront infinity pool and some evenings they arrange a cinema on the beach where you can relax on beanbags, eat popcorn and watch a film under the stars."
