“Velassaru is a private paradise island with villas featuring plunge pools and overwater dining terraces. Each one is wonderfully secluded, and fashioned from thatch, stone and teak with chic minimalist design. We especially like the water villas that come with full sea-facing walls opening out onto an over-water terrace and the lagoon beyond.”
Inevitably the crown jewel of the South Male Atoll, in the Maldives, Velassaru is your answer to a luxury island getaway.
Choose a water bungalow, villa or water suite perched above the sparkling lagoon, or hide away in a beach villa set amidst lush tropical greenery and pure white sand. With refreshing interiors that are light and airy, the minimalist décor uplifts your spirits with its dashes of bright green, vivid turquoise, orange and lemon yellow.
Expect spacious verandas or overwater decks with comfy daybeds and loungers where you can sit and enjoy the uninterrupted seascapes.
Watch the endless horizon from the infinity pool as the sun sets, turning the sky brilliant shades of red and orange. There are also comfy indoor and outdoor dining options that range from chilling out with cocktails and nibbles by the beach, to turning up the romance with a private lunch for two on a deserted sandbank.
