Luxury disrobed - secluded but not isolated, the new Velassaru Maldives resort has probably the finest white sand beach and turquoise lagoon accessible by speedboat. This coconut palm shaded private coral island is 45 minutes by speedboat from Male airport. Experience the background of the Indian Ocean at Sand Restaurant which serves Far Eastern, European and Indian cuisines. The Fen Bar is the place to relax with views of the ocean. Dine alfresco or indoors at the stylish Etesian, or if privacy and intimacy is what counts, opt for round-the-clock villa dining. Recreation includes a swimming pool with ocean views, PADI certified dive school, guided snorkelling in the house reef, tennis court, water sports and fitness centre. Take moonlit vows, go night fishing; have your dive experience photographed. Relax in the over-water treatment pavilions of Aquum Spa offering signature spa experiences. Seaplane excursions, big game fishing and the Velassaru Sunrise Experience are definite highlights.
