beach villa is more suitable for kids”
we tried both beach and water villa, and feel that the beach villa is more suitable for kids as they can go out and play sand any time, it's also easier for swimmers. the waves at the water villa side (as they are out in the ocean) can be a little bigger and not suitable for beginners.
Dear Valued Guest, Greetings and best wishes from Angsana Velavaru family! Thank you for sharing your holiday experience with us. We are happy to know that you and your family had enjoyed both types of Angsana Velavaru accommodations, Beach and In Ocean Villa's. As you rightly expressed, Beach Villas are more suitable in the event guests are traveling with kids since those villas have direct access to the beach area. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Regards, Ali Shakir Executive Assistant Manager
Beach villa is a good deal”
We stayed in both beach and water villas and think that beach villa is better value, esp when we have kids. They can play sand and snorkel all day long. there is quite a bit of fish, - and we saw turtle, baby shark, eels, and corals (many dead though due to global warming, but overall still nice). you can stroll around the island, go to gym, kids club and other activities easily, whereas in the water villa it's more secluded and you can't really snorkel for long without fearing being flushed away (as it's in the middle of the ocean) and there seems to be less coral & fish. the breakfast is smaller scale but equally nice. One big drawback in watervilla is you have to wait for the boat to go to the main hotel island. It is expensive but what you are paying is way more than just a room - there's daily free snorkel session (an hour out), free snorkel equipment, kids club (happened to have a fun Easter celebration day), bird feeding, stingray feeding, gym, nice swings on beach...
Dear Valued Guest, Greetings and best wishes from Angsana Velavaru family! Thank you very much for the fantastic review! We are thrilled to know that you and your family stay with us was good and the water villa (IOV – In-Ocean Villas) too, but we truly agreed that beach villa is a better option when you are traveling with family. Similarly, during your stay you and your kids were able to do snorkelling all day long, spotted turtle, baby shark, eels and fishes. With regards to the corals. Yes, our marine lab team is putting all the efforts to keep the Island lagoon and the surrounded reef active as much as possible. We also have noted the complimentary ferry service is scheduled, due to that you have to wait for the boat to travel between In Ocean Villas and Island. We will definitely be taken this as valuable suggestion and do appreciate your feedback. We are always working to make things even better. We hope to welcome you and your family back soon to Angsana Velavaru Reso
Nice resort, grear villa
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for the five star rating and for the positive review. Regards, Ali Shakir, Executive Assistant Manager
Stayed in the sunset pool villa and it was amazing. The view was perfect, with fishes swimming around the vilka. Staff were great, very friendly. Sunset cruise was a fun experience, chatting n dancing with a few of the staff. Massage at Angsana spa was really good. Never regret choosing to stay at Angsana Velavaru for my Bdae trip. It was a memorable stay
Excellent resort ”
It was truly paradise. The corals here very beautiful and lots of fishes All rooms faced with ocean and water villa was the best in another small island deposit with main islands Staff were warmly and friendly

Angsana Resort is awesome! The view, the water villa is perfect! Their staff very friendly and helpful, only one thing to complaint, the buffet foods are not much choice and the foods not really like 5 star hotel value.

Location was amazing. Staff were courteous and professional. Not too many activities offered. Very friendly scuba staff. Timely plane/boat transfers. Food choices ok but not exeptional. Beach dinner was wonderful. I would rate this place 8-9/10. Would i recommend this place - YES!!! Sharon, Azhar, and this other guy in the reception were very courteous. My housekeeping person was amazing, he decorated our bed and tub exceptionally well.

Actually this is my honeymoon trip. All staffs are very nice and helpful!! When we walked around the hotel, every staff would say hi to us, we felt really welcome. For the honeymoon offer, we got romantic decoration of bedroom, it was pretty!! Besides, we got honeymoon dinner in the glasshouse, the environment was great, food was delicious! Every morning we swam in the private pool, went out for breakfast and then joined the snorkeling tour. We could go snorkeling around our room, the water was really clear and we could see many fish. There are 3 restaurants, I thought the restaurants on the main island were better, we had breadfast there everyday. The only thing annoyed me was 2 ladies staying next to my room laughing and talking loudly at 7am everyday. Btw, this is not the problem of the resort.
Good for couples”
We had a wonderful honeymood there One night complimentary honeymood is served for us Lovely honeymood beddings are presentetd by friendly staff We joined the local tour offered by the resort. $188 US for scuba diving. Worth going!
wonderful honeymoon trip”
Staffs are so friendly. Dinner buffet is around 70US. Rooms are clean. Sea water is clear. Highly recommend to stay at least one night on beach front villa and two nights on in ocrean villa. Local tours can be booked at the resort. Simply send email to the hotel and tell them your arrival time and flight details. The hotel representatives at the airport will pick you up at the aiport and arrange the transport for you. No pick up fee is needed. We paid $460 US for seaplane (includes both ways).
Perfect resort for vacation”
We were there for our honeymoon. We loved the beachfront villa. We ordered room service for lunch almost everyday. Enjoyed having lunch outside of our room over looking the lagoon. Enjoyed the marine talk at the marine center by an intern named Wei Yi from Singapore (hope i didn't remember his name wrong). Enjoyed snorkeling at the house reef by the free rental of snorkeling equipment. Perfect resort for relaxation as it is secluded by a 45-min seaplane ride from Male. We were lucky that it was not peak season and most of the days the resort was not fully occupied. Although it was monsoon season, we got sunshine during the days and it only rained two times at night. Ahmed, a staff who toured us to our room on our arrival is very friendly and helpful. Most of the staffs on the island always serve with smiles on their faces. We got to check-in early on our first day, but did not get to have late check-out on the day of departure. A chinese couple told me that the hotel staff asked them if they would prefer early check-in or late check-out. If only that the chinese lady staff has asked us earlier, we would prefer having normal check-in time and check-out late on the day of our departure as our seaplane transfer was almost 4 pm but we had to check-out by 11 am.We had to hang around the resort for 4 hours before we got on the seaplane.Nevertheless, the atmosphere at the resort is very relaxing. Good for travelers who wish to escape from the hectic city life.Do look up to the sky at night for beautiful shining stars.Visit the marine sport center for activities that they offer.As my husband was not feeling well when we were at the resort, we did not get to engage with many water sports.I only managed to look at the activities the last night of our stay.They have standup paddle-boarding which I really wanted to try.
Paradise on earth”
there were a little mix up on the flight information, but the staff at the airport was very helpful and helped us to arrange for a flight to Angsana Velavaru. The journey was around 45 mins, and we were being transferred to the In Ocean Villa side to check in. The villa was really big, with a personal pool and a platform which you can go down the ocean to snorkel. There is another floor upstairs when you can have in room dining, massages, or just to soak up the sun. Very clean and well maintained. Free complimentary hi-speed wifi provided, and they drop by some tiny gifts everyday to the villa, like a cookie, a starfish souvenir n etc. very sweet. We were there to celebrate Christmas, and they had setup an amazing buffet n pre dinner cocktail party. There were caroling and santa appearance, gifts for all the children. We all had a great time, it was an amazing experience. Staffs were really friendly and welcoming. They had one of the best spa around, it's a must try. Very well pampered trip, and will definitely go back again.
We stayed at Angsana Velavaru for 3 nights for our honeymoon. Everything was well arranged by the resort. The sea-plane was fantastic as we managed to capture the picturesque view of Maldives..we stayed at deluxe beachfront pool villa and it was great. The pool is big enough and the shower is located near the pool. We took full board and all the dining was in Kaani Restaurant. But unfortunately the full board does not cover drinks. However they have 3 more restaurants where you will get 50% discount if you take full board @AIP. We also went for diving and it was really great. the dive instructor, was good and helpful. We managed to see dolphins..
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we didn't regret a single time there. We upgraded to the IOV with sunset view on our 3rd night there. It was extremely beautiful. The room is simply perfect for honeymooners.
amazing hotel - very friendly staff. amazing reef. Kids got sick and the hotel quickly organised a trip to the doctor in a nearby island.overall - a great hotel - the only backside is the food and the lack of variety in it - also, not worth the money you pay for it - paid 80 USD for a singapore chilli crab dish - was worth 10 USD only - if you are not a foodie, then go for it as the hotel is amazing.
Great resort with friendly staffs”
the whole resort has a very premium and relaxing feeling. all the decorations and finishing were very nice. the beach villas were big and cosy. i especially like the private open-air shower and relaxing area at the back part of the villa. all the villas also had direct access to the beach which makes it very convenient. facilities in the resort was also very well equipped with kayas and snorkels provided for free. the dive centre also orgainises free snorkelling trip to their house reefs. trips to other better reefs also available but they charge a price which i find is a bit expensive. especially interesting is the manta rays feeding time in the evening where four huge manta rays comes up to shore to be fed by the staff. overall a great experience!
Fantastic for honeymooners”
small island ,Beachfront Jet Pool Villa was comfort and privacy guaranteed water sport activities amazing snorkeling free for 1 hour a day also the rowboat friendly staff , Chinese favorable resort internet access available for free restaurant timing and price were good and taste excellent it advised to have 2-3 nights there . overall stay rate 9.2/10
Very good hotel with good view and good facility”
i stay in the beachfront villa. the villa is very good. with good garden, good bed, good facility including cd player and tv. the show room is in the garden. outside the villa is private beach. the facility if viall is good including free snorkeling. the equipment can be rent free of charge during the stay. you have to take the seaplane to the island. it is a wonderful experience to sea the so called "india pearls" from the sky.
I booked Angsana Velavaru through Agoda.com quite last minute, almost 10days before my honeymoon trip! But thanks for the promotion Stay 2 nights pay 1 night offer from Agoda, I managed to stay in this excellent resort in Maldives ^_^ The staff are very helpful and friendly, the environment in the whole island is just feel like staying in the heaven. There are 3 main restaurants: Kaani, Azzurro and Funa Restaurant and each have their own specialities. Although Funa Restaurant have the best ambience for fine dining, but the food is not as per my expectation. Other than that, the In-villa BBQ is a must-try for honeymooners. Will definitely recommend this resort for honeymooners, you will never forget the romantic experience!
