My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in September 2016 and it was nothing short of perfect. We stayed in a water bungalow facing out onto the ocean. The room we stayed in was huge, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the bathroom was sublime. We cam away with ideas as to how to decorate our own bathroom!...

Wow, what a beautiful Resort! We came with another couple after our trip to India for a 4 days relaxation. I did some research and decide to pick Velassaru. We made the best choice. From our emails between the resort to our final checkout, we were well taken care of. The Resort was beautiful, we had the lagoon and the...

We stayed at the Velassaru for 9 nights on our honeymoon, and it was absolutely fantastic. We stayed in a Beach Villa, number 231, and we were very happy for this villa. The Villas on this side of the island is closer to the beach and are more private, rather than the villas on the other side of the island....

Amazing Amazing Amazing! If you're looking for a place to stay in the Maldives, look no further. Velassaru was literally a dream come true. There were numerous times where I would turn to my husband and say "is the real?" The beauty there is truly unbelievable. I did plenty of research online as I always do and decided on Velassaru...

We recently flew to Velassaru for our honeymoon and was completely blown away. We flew with BA and then travelled by boat which only took 25mins. We noticed other couples arriving by sea planes also, so you have the option of both. We stayed for 2 weeks on the Velassaru Indulgence package (all-inclusive) and can not recommend this package enough,...

Velasaru is beautiful island. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help all and do to feel like a king .The island is not boring and every night organized some entertainment / cinema, a disco club on the beach, an acoustic band and much more. The sea is beautiful and warm. The beaches are beautiful and surreal. I had...

We spent a week on Velassaru from 11th Feb.. lovely island, fab friendly staff and great food! We had a beach villa with pool which was brilliant (and particularly enjoyed by our 7 year old daughter!). We chose the all inclusive indulgence package which allowed us to eat in all the restaurants with no extra charge.. all the restaurants were...

Where to start with this resort... I researched a number of islands and resorts extensively for weeks on end before finally deciding upon Velassaru as the destination for my husband's 30th birthday trip. When selecting a hotel, the key factors for me are usually nice grounds and a large pool, direct beach access, a good selection of bars & restaurants,...
