VELAA PRIVATE ISLAND

Velaa Private Island opened in 2013, around the island 1560m, is a medium-sized resort island in the Maldives. Beach score 5/Max 5, 100% round the island, average width 30m. Snorkeling 3/Max 5, House reef 60% round the island, distance to the beach 70m.

Since opening in 2013, Velaa has become a byword for personal attention and ultimate luxury.

There are 43 rooms, which range from the one-bedroom Beach Pool Villa to the four-bedroom Private Residence. All have enormous private pools and are decorated in an exotic pan-Asian style with lots of dark-wood furniture and beautifully crafted bathrooms.
