Luxury Holidays At Velaa Private Island

Located in the wonderfully named Noonu Atoll, Velaa Private Island certainly has some spectacular and unique features that really make it stand out, including a teppanyaki restaurant and wine cellar in a futuristically designed tower, a six-metre-high climbing wall and even a golf academy and short course. In addition, there’s an array of activities to enjoy, along with a host of motorised and non-motorised watersports ranging from jet-skiing and scuba-diving, to catamaran sailing.

Privacy and luxury go hand-in-hand amongst the excellent range of stylish, contemporary accommodation. Overwater villas and residences boast private swimming pools and viewing windows in their floors, while villas located on the beach also have private swimming pools, plus spectacular open-air bathrooms in their gardens and direct access to the resort’s talcum powder-soft white sand. Wherever its location, each guest villa acknowledges colonial design in its decor and natural materials are used wherever possible. Families will be delighted to learn that the island boasts a complimentary children’s club, while foodies and wine-lovers won’t be disappointed by the cuisine and beverages on offer here, with a Michelin-starred chef overseeing the international menu at the signature restaurant and experienced sommeliers running the largest wine cellar in the Maldives, replete with more than five-hundred labels, including rare vintages from boutique wineries across the world.

Luxury Beach

Velaa Private Island's beach truly redefines the meaning of luxury and privacy. With soft white sands meeting the incredible turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, guests can bask beneath the warm sun and idyllic blue skies amid an unparalleled sense of serenity. Off-shore, adrenaline-fuelled fantasies can become a reality with a range of high tech watersports equipment - including Sea Bobs and jet skis - or with an unforgettable dive into the nearby coral reef, crowded with exotic marine life.


With extravagant private villas, spectacular dining scenes and unrivalled picturesque views, Velaa Private Island exudes an atmosphere of timeless romance. Glide across the turquoise ocean using one of the hotel's fleet of boats - choose the private Velaa yacht for lazing in luxury or the powerful fishing boat to bring home your own catch together. As the Maldivian sun sets, discover Velaa Private Island's wine cellar - the largest in the Maldives - to unearth some of the world's most exquisite wines side-by-side.


Extremely unusual, if not unique for the Maldives, Velaa Private Island has its own golf course! Velaa Golf Academy by Olazabal has been developed with Spanish professional golfer, Jose Maria Olazabal - renowned for his excellent short game - and includes nine tees, six greens, seven bunkers and a lake. Guests may enjoy tailored private golf lesssons at the academy, given by the hotel's resident PGA-qualified professional golfer, at an additional charge. The academy is open from 9am until 6pm and guests are advised to book a convenient tee-off time for the golf course in advance.

Scuba Diving

Scuba-diving is certainly an option at Velaa Private Island, with a collection of unexplored dive sites no further than fifteen minutes away from the resort. Along with the teems of colourful tropical fish, scuba-divers have the chance to spot Grey Reef Sharks, Nurse Sharks, Black Spotted Stingrays and Manta Rays (in season). Guests who wish to learn to dive may do so, with Padi-approved diving courses available at the resort. Sharing its name with the Sea Turtle, Velaa is home to a number of the creatures and there is even a nursery area for them at the resort, cossetted between the watersports centre and the Padi-approved diving pavilion.

Spa & Wellness

Set in an elegant overwater location, My Blend by Clarins Spa is a haven for personalised spa therapies, developed to deeply relax and rejuvenate guests. With Asian-inspired therapies and innovative facilities, the spa embraces a holistic approach in treating guests - with the addition of fresh juices and Champagne to enhance the experience. Yoga and meditation is also an option at the beachside meditation platform or the raised tree platform, overlooking the hotel's lush gardens and golf course, while guests have a fully equipped fitness centre to utilise as well.
