This place is magical, romantic and exotic, the experience cannot be explained, it has to be seen so you can believe it. Everything about this island is so beautiful, the Beach is powder white sand , crystal clear water, and the nature, o my god so green, there are people taking so much care about all vegetation, and attention to details around. The restaurants are spot on clean and the food is lovely, with plenty of tasty choices. The stuff is so kind, always smiling and always there for you. Scuba Diving was excellent experience, with one of the biggest ship wreck in the area, unfortunately because of the Corona virus outbreak all my future diving bookings where cancelled. We have booked beach villa with stunning views, 10 meters from the water, with local small reef with plenty of fish, lobsters and if you are lucky enough you can see little baby sharks. The villa absolutely clean every day Mohamed Husain took great care for us from the mini bar to cleaning, set bed morning and evening and flowers where waiting for us every day. Because of the virus the island stopped receiving more people and we have left handful of people, the stuff never gave up trying to make us happy and comfortable, the all restaurant’s where still open and trying very hard for us. Our holiday was cut short because of the outbreak so sadly we had to leave one day early. I have never seen my wife so happy on holiday, I have never experienced such a relaxed, and romantic time with my wife in my life, and because of that this magical place, this beautiful island will be my favourite place to return to as soon as possible next year 2021 and experience all over again. Thank you very, very much to all Velassaru team, thank you for make our holiday unforgettable, we are definitely recommending this beautiful place to everyone we know, and we wish you all the best, I really hope you can make it painless during this difficult times, I will see you again.

Trust me i am saying this as being ocd about cleaning:) Check in: great hospitality with professionalism and big smiles. Thank you Aluo for nice welcoming. Also team who delivers the luggages are so so kind and nice. Such a good first impression they are creating. Water-sports: tried SUP and must do as you can enjoy watching all big fishes thr crystal clear water. Diving: never thought i could do and fell in love with that!!!!even completed my second diving all thanks to Laura who made me felt very safe and comfortable while diving both in hotel lagoon and out in the open water. Their Sunday visit must do!!!100% recommended. Also corals in the hotel lagoon, is sweet to watch small colorful fishes. and snorkeling equipments are complimentary during stay which was awesome. Final note is about photo shooting which is another recommended action:) u will have 30mins complimentary session and team is great. They will for sure gonna take some excellent shots like a magazine cover! (1photo free then charged as per packages). Thank you to entire hotel team!
We have been to the Maldives for the last 4 years now and to be fair price came in to the reckoning when we booked Velassaru. For our first week we took the seaplane to another island then another back to Male to be transferred by boat to the island. We were picked up (just us 2) by a large speed boat, fantastic ! On route the guys stopped as were in the middle of a large pod of dolphins, again fantastic ! The service, food and people were great ( can’t say fantastic again 😉). It’s not fair to single anybody out but we must give a mention to Hazel, she met us and chatted every morning, genuine friendly chat . The beach is by far the best we have ever been on , fish life is poor compared with the other places we have been to but it is near Male. Much has been said about the burner island so we had seen the reviews BUT it is not in the distance, it shocked us at first. After a day or two we forgot about it and got on with it so don’t avoid this island as you will miss a gem just be ready for it. There’s plenty of fish just not the brightly coloured unless you dive or snorkel at the rim of the reef . All in all great place for somewhere near Male.
Perfect end to our honeymoon
This place is every bit as beautiful as it looks in the photos. The staff were great, the choice of bars and restaurants excellent and the island simply stunning. This was our first visit to the Maldives and it certainly won’t be our last. If you want complete luxury in paradise, this is your place!
We spent 4 days and nights on this wonderful island and enjoyed every moment. The speedboat ride was amazing and it was a bonus that there was just the 2 of us! Our beach villa with pool (228) was a perfect location and a dream to sit in bed with that view, very private and great not to have to be around a hotel pool at all. Pleased we did all inclusive as food and drinks are very expensive but all fabulous. Service was excellent everywhere and all restaurants a delight. Thankfully we didn’t need to visit the Vela buffet at night. Book in for dinner as soon as you arrive. Turquoise was delicious for lunch as was the Chill Bar tapas. Etesian, Sand and Tappinayaki were all great. Attentive staff everywhere and cleanliness of rooms and resort were first class. We particularly enjoyed film night on the beach and the snorkelling. A great first experience of the Maldives. Highly recommended.
