We stayed here in March 2017 for 4 nights in a deluxe bungalow. The deluxe bungalow was amazing, very spacious, cleaned twice every day. The outside bathroom was wonderful. We had an indoor shower and an outdoor shower as well. Very good quality toiletries (L'occitane) were provided. The choice and quality of food was excellent. We absolutely loved the buffet...

My 8 yr old daughter, myself and hubby stayed here the last week of March in a Beach villa with pool. Can highly recommend this resort! Does not get better then this. Close enough but not too far away from the airport, so no need for the sea plane. We arrived at around 8am to the island and were given...

Have just recently visiting the Maldives for the first time, I have to say I did not prepared to be amused....I am not a big fan of the sea or being somewhat isolated from the world, that all changed when I came to this place. It was very peaceful, tranquil and most of all, beautiful. The staff were very friendly...

Velassaru is absolutely stunning and an excellent choice for couples who love food and relaxation by the beach with a little activity. First, you know how you see a hotel's pictures, and when you get there, the hotel looks just...different? well, with Velassaru it looks *just* like its pictures....which is to say it's ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. THE HOTEL: itself is beautiful....

We have just returned from the most perfect holiday in velassaru. It was amazing, far beyond our expectations. The sea was turquoise and the beach white sand. Our beach bungalow was exceptional, just a few steps from the beach and sea. The food in the resort was fabulous, an amazing selection at every meal. All fresh and delicious. The staff...

It's difficult to overdo the plaudits for this fabulous resort. From our greeting at the airport to the departure, everything was top class. After a swift and comfortable speedboat journey, the welcoming party took care of our check in and gave us a comprehensive introduction to the resort. We were then brought to our room in a golf buggy and...

We booked the room with a private pool for our honeymoon and it was the best! The private boat transferred us from the airport to the exclusive island and we were welcomed with a refreshing drink and cool towels. The hotel staff then escort you to your room where we received a nice L'occitane gift and a small bottle of...
