Velassaru the island, the team, the food, hospitality, quality of welcome and accommodation and comfort were outstanding. We enjoyed a fabulous 7 night stay and were thoroughly well looked after from the moment we arrived to getting back to Male airport. The grounds/gardens are incredibly verdant, lush and immaculately maintained and tidied (and beautifully lit at night). The choice and quality of restaurants and meals for a small island (you can walk around it in around 25 minutes, feet in the sea almost all the way) is remarkable. Our beach villa was perfect, with a sea view and plenty of space for the time we wanted to be indoors, including the wonderful outdoor shower. The facilities (pool, dive centre, gym, water sports centre) are all stylish and sensitively low key for the glorious natural setting. Perhaps amongst all this excellence, the stand out feature is the quality of personal service. Polite, discrete, good humoured, attentive and authentic. While not as remote as other islands, the convenience of a refreshing 25 minute boat ride from the airport is more than adequate compensation.

My partner and I spent 2 weeks on the island and stayed in both the beach villa and the overwater villa with a pool. Both were excellent options and it was nice to have a change of scenery during our stay. Brett and Joao and their teams provided great service and spectacular dining options. In particular the New Year’s Eve dinner and party was out of this world. Lots of different cuisine on offer but the highlight was the Teppanyaki restaurant. The wagyu beef was to die for. Never a dull moment with massages and treatments at the spa, jet skiing, parasailing, boat trips looking for Dolphins and seeing lots of little sharks and Stingrays. The overwater villa had endless amounts of fish swimming all around which was amazing to watch. Big shout out to Diwaan who brought a smile to our faces every morning at breakfast. All the staff were so friendly and attentive and helpful.

My partner and I visited this lovely island for a New Year’s 10 day break and what a way to end 2021 and start 2022. Stunning over water villa fabulous food and a huge staff that couldn’t be more polite professional and helpful. Brett, General Manager leads a charming group of people across all areas Midhu and Ahmed in housekeeping were so helpful, the servers in the Turquoise Restaurant, too many to name, were friendly professional and courteous and reception was a joy to deal with on every occasion. Marje gets a special mention for her attentive service and the help she gave to my girlfriend during our stay. I cannot recommend this island enough. Beautiful beaches crystal clear waters and a fabulous resort. We will be back

Beautiful small island that is just breathtaking. We stayed at the island for 5 nights. Incredible service all over !! The only negative feedback would be: - Need to book tables in advance (busy) - Snorkelling area around is not “fantastic” Other than that …worth the money !!
