Stay at Velaa Private Island

Velaa Private Island Maldives holidays

We know Velaa is always a safe choice for our clients. It’s an ultra-luxe resort in terms of accommodation, service, gastronomy, spa and exclusivity. And the best Maldives resort for the variety and quality of watersports, plus the only one with a top quality golf course. At Velaa your options are close to unlimited. Just note that the island, although stunningly beautiful, is one of the smaller private islands in the Maldives, with wave breakers that can spoil the view for some.


In the remote Noonu Atoll, 45 minutes northwest of Male by seaplane, where two more of the best Maldives resorts are situated, Soneva Jani and Cheval Blanc - many of our clients combine two Noonu Atoll resorts on one holiday. When arriving by private jet you can land at Maafaru International Airport, then it’s a 35-minute speedboat transfer. There’s excellent diving and snorkelling all around the atoll, however, the resort does not have its own house reef.


The 43 villas are designed around their outside space. Each has a private pool and terrace plus private butler. Many also feature outdoor baths and showers, with more extensive terraces overlooking the Indian Ocean. They vary in size and can accommodate one to ten guests, with around half built over the water. For absolute privacy and discretion we recommend one of the four private residences, especially the romantic residence which is only accessible by boat. The two-bedroom beach pool house is a great choice for families.

Who is it for

Families and couples. Velaa combines lots of first-class facilities and opportunities to play, with the privacy and seclusion you need for precious time with friends and family.

Facilities & activities

The best Maldives resort for the variety and quality of watersports, always with the latest high-tech toys like flyboarding and a tandem jetovator. A golf course designed by Jose Maria Olazabal, an outstanding spa, covered tennis court, climbing wall and the best wine cellar in the country. Only three restaurants, but all three of them feature among the best in the Maldives. And the amazing Velaa butler service.
