Velaa Private Island


Situated in the Noonu atoll, a 45-minute seaplane ride from Male International Airport, Velaa Private Island is the ultimate tropical paradise in the Maldives.

Forty-five expansive villas are set on the beach surrounded by greenery or over the lagoon, offering maximum privacy. Interiors are sophisticated and feature sumptuous furnishings, luxurious outdoor bathrooms, pools and butler service. Accessible only by boat, the Romantic Pool Residence is ideal for honeymooners wanting to indulge. It comes with its own gym and spa. Family accommodation is available.

Velaa is home to three outstanding restaurants helmed by Michelin-starred chef Adeline Grattard. One of the highlights is the Teppanyaki restaurant located at the top of the iconic Tavaru Tower, which houses the largest wine and champagne collection in the Maldives.

Had a busy day? Cool off in the pool, be pampered with a massage in the spa, or sip a glass of vintage champagne in the overwater lounge.
