Situated in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187km north of Malé, Velaa Private Island is the conceptualisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ boutique hideaway. With its huge array of water sports, snorkelling and diving activities on offer, along with a private pool found in every villa, the island is cool on every level. Allowing plenty of opportunity for guests to chill out, Velaa even offers a snow room (the only one in all of the Maldives) in their luxurious Spa My Blend by Clarins, with icy conditions and light, fluffy snow to bring your body temperature down.








Specially tailored to provide some much-needed relief to those looking to escape the Gulf during the summer months, Velaa Private Island has devised a ‘VELAA STAY 7 PAY 5’offer with guests booking for a minimum of seven nights and receiving two nights complimentary.

Guests traveling from now until mid-October will reap the benefits of an extended holiday to feel refreshed and rejuvenated.

With the offer valid on all villa categories (apart from Beach Pool Villa and Sunrise Water Pool Villa), guests can choose between the gorgeous Deluxe Beach Pool Villas set amongst lush tropical flora, or the stunning overwater villas situated in the azure lagoon.








The mesmerising natural beauty of Velaa Private Island, its unique style, and its sophisticated appeal also extends to its celebrated restaurants, in particular Tavaru, known for its distinctive soaring tower, offers a refined degustation celebrating Teppanyaki grill cuisine. Alternatively, guests can dine with their feet in the sand at Athiri restaurant, which dishes up fine dining international cuisine; or savour a bespoke and unique gastronomic experience at Aragu where a three to five-course tasting menu is created based on each guest’s personal preferences. Select from a simple list of prized ingredients (Maldivian lobster, Japanese Bluefin tuna, Anjou pigeon and more) and wait for the magic to begin.

Priding itself on privacy, world-class cuisine, personalized service and a huge line-up of refreshing activities, Velaa Private Island is a cool retreat for GCC guests this summer.

Velaa Private Island

Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”.

Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch.

From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body.

The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
