4 of us stayed at the Velassaru for 3 nights in 2 deluxe bungalows on the sunrise facing side of the island. It really was the perfect luxury vacation from start to finish. The staff were friendly and welcoming from start to end. The bungalows were well equipped and there was always a sense that they go the extra mile. On the first night we ate at Etesian Restaurant. The food was Mediterranean and we learnt that a new Italian chef had just started work there. The ambience is romantic with softly lit tables. On the second night we ate at Sand, the seafood restaurant where the catch of the day was delightfully fresh. We were thrilled at how authentic the Indonesian fried rice which accompanied our main course was, and were happy when we learnt that the sous chef, Alvin who prepared it is from Singapore. On the third night, we ate at Teppanyaki, a lovely restaurant built over the water. The lights from Male twinkled in the distance and all four of us pretty much agreed that the food was exquisite. Who can forget the showmanship of the chef as he seared the beef tenderloin and scallops to perfection. The wine list at the Velassaru is impressive and worthy of fine dining in a major capital city. What a treat to have such a selection in this turquoise paradise. Activities wise, snorkels and fins were provided for free for the duration of our stay and renting kayaks to go round the island was fairly easy. My only advice is 3 nights was probably too short and I can see why some would spend an entire week at Velassaru.

We were very pleased by the staff's welcome to our return visit. They made certain that they knew it was our second visit. Our last day/night at the resort was an amazing one because of the staff's effort to make the visit more enjoyable. We enjoyed the water villa tremendously.

Need much improvement on customer service

The room was very comfortable and the surroundings of the resort was very well maintain

We read a lot of good review about Velassaru before deciding on the resort. I had been to other resorts in Maldives and most of the staff were friendly and smiling. I was surprised that the service staff at the resort were not very forthcoming and friendly despite my husband and I always making the first move to greet and smile. This is certainly what we expect of Maldivian hospitality. The level of English of the operator was also questionable. I called to check if there was any message for me after seeing the blinking message light on the phone. I was informed that it was normal to have message light blinking! ? After insisting that she checked if there's any message she responded that she would call me later. We received no call all the way till check out. Availability of meal plans at the resort was also not well communicated. When we went to Vela restaurant to have our lunch while waiting for our room to be ready, they were shocked by the response a staff gave us. Almost everything we asked he wasn't sure and the excuse he gave was he was new. If he was indeed new to the job, the least he could do was to check for us. Overall I would say that much could be improved on the standard of service. Would like to compliment the masseurs for the wonderful massage and Kim for assisting us in reservation for dinner. The room manager from Indonesia ( sorry forgotten his name) was also very professional in handling customers.

Nice Place near Male, would recommend.

Location near Male, beautiful beach, somewhat well price for Maldives
8.7
We stayed here for 2 days before heading to the Park Hyatt. It was very nice. We did not expect it to be so nice as it was so close to Male and the price is "affordable" by Maldives standards. The beach villa was great, the beach was very nice, great food, and perfect for snorkeling with kids. Our 5 year old daughter played on the beach and snorkeled all day, she really had a good time. We didn't have time for the resort pool, which is pretty nice, infinity, etc… I summary, it was better than expected and the staff was superb, great service. Would go back for sure.

They didn't just simply deliver... they've exceeded our expectations. The room is same as what's on the website. The place is well maintained. Everyone was very friendly. We loved our stay in the water villa. We enjoyed the 'Satay Dinner'. I was really amazed that they really took note of the our food restrictions and changed the menu accordingly. We had a grand time!
