Me and my wife have just got back from honeymoon at the Velassaru Maldives 20th to 27th May.From the very start we were treated like royalty. When we arrived in Male they had a representative from the island to collect our bags and direct us on to there exclusive speed boat. Upon arriving at the island, you are greeted by the staff and manager. We had booked a deluxe water villa with pool number 415 and where amazed how modern the villa was. The water is crystal clear and the island is spotless! The staff couldn't do enough for you I have to say a special mention to "Ali Ahmed" who looked after us most nights in the main restaurant. The food is 1st class, in the whole 7 days we didn't have one bad meal. We opted for the Indulgence package and can honestly say it is worth every penny. All the cocktails, premium beers, breakfast, lunch and dinners are all included. There is also plenty to do on the island and you didn't feel pressured into doing any of the excursions unlike other holidays I have been on. One night they had a DJ on the beach, I've never seen anything like it everyone was up dancing.

From the moment you step foot onto the island Velassaru you are in good hands. You feel special from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. Not only are the grounds perfectly kept (I didn't put a pair of shoes on the whole time I was there!) but everything is done so discreetly that you don't feel the staff around you making the Island feel as beautiful as it is 100% of the time. The rooms are first class. We stayed in a beach villa and the bathroom most certainly has the "wow factor" (best bathroom I have seen!).The food is wonderful. Our favorite was Sand (in particular the lobster bisque) but every restaurant was great and we visited each at least twice during our stay.The staff are amazing, every single one of the staff seemed to enjoy their job and went out of their way to make our stay special. An extra big thank you to Azaam and Christopher at Sand, Rasheed at Chill bar (in fact everyone at chill bar), the Dolphin tour boys and Madars at Glide. Thank you to everyone at the Velassaru for making our once in a lifetime trip one to remember forever.

I had an incredible stay at Velassaru. I loved the relaxed yet very chic feel the whole island had, gorgeous beaches, a stunning infinity pool, and delicious restaurant choices and chill areas. On the Saturday night we had a great time drinking cocktails at the funky bar on the sand, which later turned into a fun disco/dance floor with great tunes, and even some glowing paraphernalia to get everyone in the party mood! The food was out of this world - such incredibly high standards. The staff were so lovely and attentive - truly 5* service all round, and to top it all off, only a 25 minute speedboat ride from Male.

We went to Velassaru on our honeymoon and it is absolutely beautiful. The photographs you see on the websites etc are what you get when you arrive. They don't Photoshop anything! Wonderful staff, service, food, beach & weather. Our beach bungalow was lovely and literally on the beach. Can't wait until we get to go back!

Very nice resort with very nice staff. The hotel was fully booked, but we didnt t had the feeling, that there was a lot of people. The staff was very helpful and also because of them we had a very nice vacation. Especially Jana, the manager from the bar was one of the best that we met there. But also others were very nice. I strongly recommend this resort for everybody who wants to have calm and quiet vacation.
