Awful experience, will never return, do not bring your family here, they will ruin the entire trip for you.
It took us way too long, to get the ride from the airport to the resort, We landed at 7 and Wernt even on our transfer boat until 10am!! That’s 3 hours of waiting The boat ride there was nothing special, the boat itself took/5 mins to arrive. The welcome, we walked from the boat to the back, they took our passports while we waited exactly to be finished checking in, my husband was not greeted once, Forbes standard failed. We got off the boat at 10:03, it’s 10:20 right now and currently still sitting waiting. While waiting and signing for the double charge I let him know how inconvenient and let down we were to be having to change our entire plans. His attitude “that’s your choice” Our check in attendant was Ibrahim, his attitude towards it all was extremely rude, he basically said, not my problem, this is what’s going to happen, attempted to make zero accommodations. We signed papers at 10:45am and waited again another 30 minutes, finally got into our room at 11:16. If you’re going to travel 24 hours to go to your dream destination, avoid this place at all costs, it will ruin your plans so much. On the 17th, the next day we kept to ourselves except for dinner, we ordered our meal and some pizzas, we never got any plates for the pizza, we finished our water and never got a refill, we had to get up and ask for napkins and water, and then my husband had to get up and sign for the bill. The only thing the waiter did was being a pizza and water out, awful service!! Pool is mediocre, no slides, No activities at all anywhere, or events, shows etc.. In the Forbes standard this hotel would be rated a 2 at the most. Our total originally was $3100 But because they would not allow our 3 babies all under 5 (who already sleep with us in the same bed) to stay with us, they forced us to get a second room. (Knowing we would obviously not allow our 3 and 1 year old to sleep in a separate room) All about the profit. $6200 Save yourself the haste and heartache and try a diffrent resort, especially is travelling as a family, eventually I’m sure every hotel will have to become more family friendly because that’s where the trends are going! I also found two cockroaches! One in our beach villa and one in the spa!! I took a picture of both! And our bungalow bedroom wall had the wall paper falling off, not something that should happen in such a expensive hotel.
Must visit place
One of the best resorts where you can be with your family and friends it’s kids friendly and safe each and every one will take care of you only thing which needs to improve is activity schedule which is not so awesome .I had the beat para sailing with my guides they both are awesome much regard to them to make my trip one of kind
Extraordinary Vacation at Velassaru
My boyfriend and I went to Velassaru in back February and returned a month later as we loved the place so much. Even though it has been months since we came back and life has been continued to be so busy, but I decided to take a moment to express my gratitude. My boyfriend and I had been apart from each other for more than a year due to Covid 19 and we decided to treat ourselves in dream destination-Maldives. So having a great time and making meaningful memories during this vacation was so important for us. And during our one month vacation we not only had an incredible time living our life to the fullest, but also we made life-time memories seizing every moment. In one word, Velassaru is out of this world. We stayed in Water Bungalow and Deluxe Villa. We were blown away by the level of effort from the entire Velassaru staff, from grounds crew to housekeeping to management. They provided impeccable service. So many smiling faces everywhere, it was extremely welcoming. The resort itself is just outstanding. It is super clean, bug free and surrounded by beautiful coral reefs. It is conveniently located near the wall of coral reefs where we had an incredible time diving multiple times. But I realized what makes Velassaru so special is the efforts of its crew. Especially, the management team of Marjorie and Mohamed; as well as , the resort doctor-Dr. Hassan delivered above and beyond level of service in making our stay at Velassaru extraordinary. Marjorie and Mohamed really took their time to listen to us and our story. And they seamlessly provided us world class experience with such attention to details. Dr. Hassan frequently visited and took care of us when we had sunburns and heat stroke. We felt so safe having Dr. Hassan as on-site doctor in resort. So I want to take this moment to thank Marjorie, Mohamed and Dr. Hassan for their world class service. We absolutely will return. We highly recommend this place to anyone who is planning to visit Maldives and making life-time memories.
Romantic summer trip
Just posting from resort in last hours of being here A luxurious not big tropical island dedicated to velassaru hotel nice beach beautiful infinity bar and very kind staff We stayed in bungalow with pool for two night that was great spectacular view and accommodation and endless blue warm ocean with easy access that they offer us just we arrived 10 am and very soon than routine check in Snorkeling was fantastic but remember to wear shies too many coarse coral . We were here for our first anniversary and they scheduled to bring us and anniversary cake. Although they forgot!! They send it after we remember them two times after two days, but the cake was very delicious and beautiful . Our last two nights spent in deluxe villa that they provides for us freely upgrade from deluxe bungalow . honestly, the villa has noting to offer individually, but the resort has so moch incredible places and good sense to offer and we enjoyed very much. Evrey thing is so clean . At last i should say that rubbish island is no matter of thinking , we can't even find to see it.thanks too all velassaru kind team , we hope to visit this beautiful resort as soon as possible.
