Velassaru is a glorious four star Maldivian retreat that offers seclusion, a good range of facilities as well as the most spoiling white sandy beaches. It’s home to 129 rooms, so it is a little larger than some of the other resorts we offer, but this makes it excellent value for money. It’s most definitely affordable luxury at its best. The island sits just 20 minutes from Male International Airport by speedboat; a resort that can be accessed by speedboat is far easier and cheaper than travelling by seaplane, so we think this is a real bonus. The entire resort has a very contemporary and sleek appeal with innovative bars and cool chill out spaces. Arguably it has a younger vibe than the other resorts we recommend, making it an idea honeymoon choice.
The Deluxe Bungalows are the lead in category; like all rooms they are inspired by island architecture with teak, stone and thatch and high vaulted ceilings. They are just few steps from the tropical shoreline. The Beach Villas are larger, more luxurious and more private as they have a private garden and courtyard. For those with a bigger budget you might want to opt for the Water Villas or even the Water Suites. We feel this is an excellent option for those looking for style and comfort without breaking the bank. Arguably it has a younger vibe than the other resorts we recommend, making it an idea honeymoon choice.
