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.

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.
SPACE TO BREATHE
