Nestled out of sight on the Noonu Atoll the stunning private island resort of Velaa is a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey north of Malé International Airport. As this tropical paradise comes into sight the powder white beaches and crystal-clear turquoise waters will take your breath away. Alongside a gym, squash and tennis courts you will find a short-game golf academy with 170m of lush greens and a swing studio designed by Jose Maria Olazabal so you can brush up on your drive. The water sport facilities are thought to be among the best throughout the Maldives and dive instructors will take you on exciting underwater explorations, although wiling away the hours with a snorkel straight from the beach is rewarding too. The aesthetics of the 43 villas and two 4-bedroom residences are stunningly simple and refined and there is no doubting the luxurious yet subtle touches throughout. With generous outdoor space and private pools there are 18 over water villas and the Romantic Villa can only be reached by boat. The three restaurants have Michelin-star Paris chef Adeline Grattard as their consultant so incredible food to suit all palates is, of course, the order of the day. The resort also boasts the most extensive wine cellar in the Indian Ocean so you can be assured that the finest wines in the world will be available to accompany your gastronomic desires. With a world-class spa, an excellent kids club, bicycles, dining under the stars, and personal butlers you can do as much or as little as you please and no request is too much for the exacting standards delivered by the Velaa staff.
