Loved this place
Great resort convenient to Male airport. Just a 20 minute boat ride and you are there. The staff is amazing and super friendly. Food is very good, the breakfast was excellent. Be prepared to pay a lot for meals and activities, but it's the Maldives not Cancun.

Loved every second of our Maldivian experience at Velassaru. The food was amazing but very expensive. Smokers were encouraged and that was the only negative for us.

Fantastic place for vacation
Great place for relaxing. Very clean with super friendly staff. Wish they had more snacks available for purchase other than what the restaurants have. We loved our over water bungalow!

Awesome place
Very good service provided. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Felt like a super VIP, we were taken very good care of by all of the staff. The water villa is fantastic, however there wasn't much choice for lunch as only 2 restaurants are open. For the first time to Maldives, Velassaru is definitely a good choice.
