Velaa, a stunning private island in the Maldives, offers an extraordinary escape combined with ultimate exclusivity.
One of the most secluded islands on earth, the exclusive use of Velaa Private Island caters to every desire for an experience that is truly individual and unforgettable. Whether it’s a vintage champagne sunset cruise on one of the island’s opulent yachts, a spectacular beachfront firework display or a personalised tasting menu from the signature restaurant, each moment is entirely bespoke.
Velaa offers even more exclusivity by being the only resort in the Maldives that has a strict no drone rule, in-room dining direct to the ocean and a ratio of 1:8 guests to staff and dedicated butlers. There is no limit to ensure experiences go beyond the norm. Guests with adrenaline-fuelled agendas can try the private semi-submarine, James Bond-worthy state-of-the-art water toys, a climbing wall and nine-hole golf course.
Velaa’s Private Residences have their own kitchen and an array of dining spaces, making each one an ideal setting for intimate occasions and celebrations. The island’s highly trained chefs will also cook and serve menus tailored to every palate.
For new gourmet experiences that compete with some of the world’s most famed restaurants, Velaa Private Island’s signature restaurant, Aragu, has introduced a new approach to gourmet cuisine. It provides tasting menus based on personal preference – an ingenious new culinary concept under the spectacular leadership of award-winning chef, Gaushan de Silva.
