New for Summer 2018, Velaa Private Island, the most exclusive island hideaway in the Maldives, has announced it will launch a new Detox & Energizing Spa Retreat, to run from 1st June to 1st September, 2018. The 7, 14 or 21 day programme will be ultra-personalized, tailored to each guests’ individual goals and desires, and led by a highly professional team including Nutritional Therapist Amelia Freer, and Fitness Trainer Specialist Aya Miklos.
When guests arrive, they will receive a comprehensive medical consultation and full body analysis, after which a bespoke daily programme will be crafted around their health needs and goals, such as weight management or flexibility. A combination of a personalized dietary plan tailored for each guest by expert nutritionist Amelia Freer, alongside a bespoke itinerary of sports, yoga, meditation and relaxing spa treatments, will be designed to create lasting results for the guest’s mind, body and soul.
For those seeking modest fat reduction, the programme will also include Lip HIFU, an effective non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction, ideal for treating stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite that have proven unresponsive to diet and exercise, including areas like the abdomen, love handles, waist, upper arms, and back. Unlike traditional liposuction, the HIFU procedure is entirely non-invasive and works by delivering focused energy at a depth of 1.3cm and 8mm to destroy fat cells and tighten the skin in the area treated. The damaged cells are flushed away via a natural removal process through the lymphatic system that continues for up to 3 months. Furthermore, where standard liposuction requires a lot of vigorous exercise to metabolise the fat cells after the procedure, the HIFU treatment gives outstanding results without any exercise at all.
The Velaa Energising Programme starts from $750USD per day / $5,250USD per week. Pricing is subject to applicable taxes (10% service charge and 12% gvt tax) and excluding accommodation.
The Programme includes the following, and will be tailor-made according to the guests’ preferences and the experts’ recommendations:
• Medical and Dietary Consultation with Advanced Analysis InBody 770

Velaa Private Island is nestled within the constellation of islands that form the remote northern Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and services 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 the Owner’s 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 here 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.
