heaven on earth
We loved the island.Always clean, the perfect barefoot experience. Wide white beaches, relaxed settings and crystal water, amazing for swimming. Never crowded! Really good food, tepanyaki restaurant was a blish. Rooms and openair bathrooms were magic. Personel very friendly and polite in a natural and very pleasant way. Many thanks to all, especially to Mr Ignatiades (the Manager of the resort) who is a true vissionaire. Hope we can visit again soon.
A semi- luxurious , mediocre, nice resort but not romantic. The food is so-so. The lagoon is quite tough and when the hotel is crowded and you see people all around, not like other maldivian set ups. The rooms are big and bright, not new , but nice. If you want a mediocre , budget luxury, semi- luxury : velassaru might be an option. Positive side: close to airport (20 min boat ride)
When you book a stay at the Maldives you expect paradise and that's exactly what Velassuru is. Simple and slick collection at Male airport, straight onto the waiting boat and then just a short 25 minute ride to the island. The island is tiny, a leisurely 20 minute stroll will take you all the way round. But it's quiet, peaceful and serene no matter where you are. The bars and restaurants are amazingly catered the staff attend to your every need. We had a few treats waiting for us as we were on our honeymoon which was a lovely surprise. The beaches were as much a little slice of paradise as you would expect. We also took advantage of the complimentary yoga classes with Aaron. Sunset on the beach is a pretty stunning setting, whether beginner or expert, they are unmissable. Overall our stay at Velassaru was incredible, we only had two elements that caught us off guard. The first were the prices, a lunch of one bottle of wine, a pizza and a salad cost us $120. Everything is enjoyable but just make sure you're ready for the bill! The other thing is the proximity to Male. That means that the boat trip is short, which is ideal. But it does still mean you can see the island and built up skyline from some aspects of the beach. We didn't find this a problem (just find another area if it's bothering you!) but if you think it would be an issue for you then you may want to take note. Overall Velassaru is every bit of paradise that you would hope for. A wonderful place.
Best experience so far!!!
It was our best trip so far! We stayed in a water villa facing the east. Breakfast and dinner which was included in our booking were very nice. Big variety and different choices everyday. Staff was excellent, very helpful and very polite! Very beautiful scenery and amazing sea life!!! The hotel is 30 minutes away from the airport of Male by boat so the access is easy. Hotel staff picked us upon our arrival and got us back at the end of our stay. We recieved excellent services! We totally recommend it!
