The best holiday paradise ever!

Nice beach, clear waters, beautiful nature
Everything at this island were very well-organised except speedboat transfer incident. We were informed that the staff would pick us up after our Male City tour but no one was at the counter when our city tour ended. The staff arrived slightly late at the jetty and gave us in the unfriendly tone, informing us that the boat would depart in estimated 3 hours time. We did not bring anything to kill our boredom at the airport for almost 3 hours. My advice to guests: 1) Please bring a book or ipad in case of the speedboat transfer delay and 2) Book a Male City tour in advance to avoid disappointment. We stayed at the Beach Villa for two nights. The atmosphere was very great because it felt really good to bath at outdoor shower area. It is just few seconds to the beach where you can relax on the sunbed and soak in the clear waters. Highly recommended. For the next two nights, we made another reservation for Water Villa but our stay were upgraded to Water Villa with Pool prior to the speedboat transfer incident. It was very thoughtful of the staff to ensure satisfaction in ourselves. The Water Villa with Pool was very awesome where we could simply relax and laze all the times! The weather was very hot and we were happy to soak in the pool to cool ourselves down. It is very easy to snorkel or swim as the water level is not more than 1.6m but for those who cannot swim, shall wear life jacket provided at the Water Villa. If we go there again, we will definitely be happy to book Water Villa with Pool again! The dinner is very expensive at Sand, Teppanyaki and Etesian but overall, very nice except Southeast Asian food. Lobster at Sand tastes great! The price for the finger food at both Fen and Chill Bars are reasonable for late lunch afternoon or tea time when you need to relax. Of all, the staff management at Velassaru are very friendly and helpful! They made everything possible for us despite of speedboat transfer incident. We are grateful to them for brightening our stay.

Birthday getaway with family

Social life, entertainment, staff friendliness
Lot's of fun and great experiences. Very supportive and friendly staff, lots of nice restaurants & activities like happy hour with free wine, DJ nights and movie nights. Not far from airport. However, due to on island generator, disel smell can be smelled at times.

Fantastic resort with lovely staff

Staff, ambience, quality
It's a fantastic resort, we booked a bungalow and loved it (especially the open shower). Staff is very nice, they're always there if you need anything but don't become too much. Food was really nice, tried all restaurants - the only comment I'd have is please have more vegetarian options in the Teppanyaki and Sand restaurant as it's very limited although everything we ate was delicious. Also great that you take care of other special dietary requirements such as having dairy free and some gluten free options. And the old-school underwater camera in the room to purchase is awesome!
