Velaa Private Island is a super-luxury boutique hideaway on the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives. Offering just 45 exclusive villas and residences, Velaa is considered by many to be the finest resort in the Maldives, with the price tag to match.

The cuisine at Velaa Island is a major USP, with three exceptional restaurants. The Athiri and Avi Bar provides all-day beach-front dining and provides a range of dishes from wood-fired pizzas to fresh salads. Tavaru is located in Velaa Island’s own tower at the centre of the island, and has a Teppanyaki kitchen where live cooking and a fantastic wine list take centre stage. The Arahu & Cru Bar is Velaa Private Islands signature restaurant where guests sip vintage champagne before being wowed by mouth watering Michelin quality fine-dining.

Velaa Private Island does not hold back on the facilities and the experiences it provides. There is a superb spa, run by Clarins. There is the Maldives first snow room, and some sophisticated treatments that are at the cutting edge of wellness treatments.

At the centre of the island, you can hone your golf at the Velaa Golf Academy which was designed by Jose Maria Olazabal. There are nine tees, six greens and seven bunkers. The house-reef at Velaa is superb, and the dive centre is on hand to help explore this more remote corner of the Maldives and exceptional diving. From trimarans, catamarans, jet skis, sea bob, parasailing and kite surfing, the water sports on offer will satisfy all your aquatic endeavours.


There comes a seminal moment for any destination when a hotel opens that dramatically raises the bar in terms of its sheer style and exclusivity. Alongside Cheval Blanc which opened in the same year, Velaa Private Island is widely recognised as having taken Maldivian luxury to a whole new level.
Every possible detail has been considered in its design, and they have certainly learnt from other resorts in the Maldives, taking the best bits of each and incorporating them into the island’s makeup. Where other resorts have either been too stuffy with a feel that is a little over the top, or some overly barefoot, Velaa has crested the wave and the result is that the overall atmosphere here is exceptionally well balanced.Velaa has just 45 picture-perfect thatched villas and residences, making the resort feel exceptionally boutique and exclusive. You can choose from either beach or over-water villas, all with private pools. There has been clever attention to retaining a sense of privacy, yet providing lots of space to relax, by including large terraces and gazebos. All rooms feature a clever blend of dark mahogany panelling with a dash of contemporary colour and sleek-lined teak furniture making them earthy, homely and elegant. There are four beach categories starting with the Beach Pool Villas, with wonderful high ceilings and bamboo lighting opening out to a terrace and private pool. The Deluxe Beach Pool Villas are larger and feature a separate living room. The Beach Pool Houses contain two bedrooms and are ideal for families. The Velaa Private Residence is even larger, with four bedrooms, 1,350 metres of indoor space including a vast pool, a gym and spa room. Moving to the over-water option, you can stay in the Sunrise or Sunset Water Pool Villa, the larger two-bedroom Ocean Pool House or the Romantic Pool Residence which is only accessible by boat and provides the pinnacle of over-water living.

Such a pleasure! We're so delighted to have our signature restaurant, Aragu awarded global winner for Luxury Scenic Setting and continental winner of the Best Wine Selection by @luxuryrestaurantawards. Thank you so much for the recognition! #VelaaPrivateIsland #VelaaMoments

A world of expertise and excellence where cutting-edge technology meets ancestral art, where personalised facial treatments are offered alongside traditional massage rituals.

Cool down in the Maldives’ only snow room or detox in the heat of the sauna and steam room, all while enjoying endless turquoise vistas.

Sourced from the world’s leading wellness experts such as Dr Burgener Swizerland and KOTOSHINA from Japan, the latest anti-aging technologies are blended with rare and beneficial ingredients to promote new levels of skin vitality and cellular health.

Take the 45-minute seaplane flight from the airport and you’ll be transported to this 20-hectare retreat which goes above and beyond ‘luxury’.

Meaning ‘Turtle Island’ in the local language – thanks to the sea turtles who have come to nest and hatch their eggs on its beaches for generations – you’ll find its namesake woven throughout the design of Velaa, with even the shape of the resort from above resembling a turtle!

Accommodation choices are superb, with eight categories to choose from, including 18 overwater. For extra space for families, there are four-bedroom residences, or honeymooners will find the extra seclusion of the Romantic Pool Residence hugely private.

Dining is certainly a reason alone to visit Velaa, with the three restaurant options each creating distinct environments in which to indulge. At Aragu & Cru you’ll discover a twist on modern European cuisine, while Athiri & Avi is a casual beachfront setting serving wood-fired pizzas by day and a bar with live DJ and mixologist at night.

For us though, the jewel in Velaa’s crown is Tavaru, a stunning white tower that’s home to Teppanyaki grill cuisine and a wine cellar with more than 500 bins!

Destination and in-villa dining are also available for a more private experience.


And when you’re not lazing by your private pool? Well there’s the spa that works in conjunction with My Blend and Clarins to offer a huge selection of treatments; the all-singing-all-dancing golf academy designed by Jose Maria Olazabal; a vast array of watersports including more unusual pursuits including Seadoo Scooters; a well-regarded PADI dive centre; and a gym, yoga pavilion, tennis and squash courts, football pitch and even a climbing wall. Children meanwhile will be in their own mini-paradise at the Lha Velaa kids’ club with its pool, playground and supervised activities.
