Paradise & Perfection 🏝🌞
Hello Velassaru, we are missing you so much. From the moment we arrived you made our holiday a dream come true. The island is perfection, staff are wonderful & the food is first class. Thank you to Irufan, you treated us like royalty, everyday you made us smile 😊 We tried the Kayaking, early morning cruise & movie might. We met some amazing people, a place we will never forget. A few tears on our last day. THANK YOU for everything 🥰
Perfect island not so far from Male
We visited Maldives for the first time and it took a long time to choose a hotel. We ended up staying at Velassaru and it turned out to be a great choice! The island itself is very well maintained and the villas are cleaned twice a day (if you need so, of course)! The staff are friendly and always willing to help. We also booked a wedding ceremony for which our manager helped to choose a day with the best weather, the photos came out just perfect! Thank you Faisal once again.
BEAUTIFUL COME BACK PLACE !
It is one of those cosy places where you feel like coming back and this summarises all. Extremely clean and well managed , beautifully set rooms and bungalows . Any category you choose has its own pluses . Housekeeping immaculate & the people in this team are worth accolades . Toiletries well thought of and In sync with the environment . Teppanyaki a must try , highly welcoming and warm service there , same spirit of service in the breakfast . Turquoise is the convenient one and accommodating to all pallets . Sands also a must try at least once The Fen Bar has a good collection needs more mock tails and staff needs to smile more , and , welcome more The sunset bar also a beautiful setting to end the evening . The restaurant staff can be a bit non welcoming at times , which I don’t understand why in many Maldives resorts is the issue , not just this , but here at least they will do their job well , they will do the best for you . The SPA set in the water villa side , also a great . The POOL is the star of the show . It’s beyond relaxing , the beach connected to it is one of the best of the resort… though throughout the day every side has its own beauty . The management do their best to make your stay nice and where this is the spirit , all pluses and minuses have no value , intent is that you should be happy FEEDBACK TO THE HOTEL : Everything should not be left to requests , many things can be offered without requests , as too many requests take away the privilege of being served in Luxury , Luxury can only be Undressed by a naked spirit of service from the heart My view is if any guest is not being able to accept the privilege offered already , the host should be courteous to offer an alternate to make things better rather than deny the same .
Wonderful stay in this lovely friendly resort
My wife and I returned to Velassaru Maldives three years after our previous visit. We wondered if things would be the same after the resort was forced to close due to the Coronavirus pandemic. I’m glad to say that they were! Of course some of the staff that we had met before were no longer there but we recognised many of the people that we had seen during our last stay. The service was of an equally high standard and was delivered in a way that made us feel special. There was a different manager in charge this time and Brett made us feel very welcome. He always stopped for a quick chat if he saw us and we found him very approachable. I will not single out any individual staff for praise as we felt that all the people we met were so helpful and friendly and I would hate to miss out some. So thank you all for making our stay so special. I would recommend this resort to anyone contemplating a visit especially to those looking for somewhere only a short boat trip from the Airport. The accommodation and food are excellent and the island has the feel of an established, well organised but relaxed resort. Because it has been in existence for a long time it has a natural and verdant atmosphere compared to some of the newer resorts. Once again thank you to everyone at Velassaru for making our stay so enjoyable.
We have just returned from our 12th visit to this perfect island. We have visited other islands over the past 20years. But velassaru ticks all our boxes. What sets this island apart is the genuinely friendly service. The food in all the restaurants is world class. The accommodation is spotless and beautifully maintained. The landscaping again is maintained to a very high standard. We have already rebooked to return in September. Many thanks for providing a consistently high standard. Many thanks to all the team who we now consider friends. Chris and Carol
