Amazing place to vacation”
The staff is amazing, food is delicious, and the island is basically haven on earth.
Excellent location. Great facilities. Receiving Staff Ayeshath, Shameer, Sand restaurant staff Shalini, Everyone there was good including room service staff, house keeping staff don't remember all names but they all were very good. Excellent place to visit. If any one planning to go for trip to Maldives do include this resort in their trip. Neat, clean environment and a resort worth to visit.
I hace been in the Maldives before, and I have to admit it's one of my favorite beach destinations in Asia. The Hotel is superb, just in front of Male Airport with very short commute. Rooms are spacius and clean, with fantastic bathroom partially outdoor.. Beach is as you expect in Maldives, white fine sand all around. Food is ok. Nothing VERY especiall but good enough. Breakfast is very good and varied. Make sure you reserve in the evening restaurants early in advance as they get fully booked fast.
Gorgeous resort. Beautiful water villa. They were on full occupancy so staff seemed stretched. It was not like the reviews I read before finalising this resort, they were less friendly. Maybe my expectation was too high. All complimentary excursions and activities were fully booked throughout our 3 nights stay even though we tried to book it the moment we arrived. Even the photography was all booked out. Otherwise the resort is so beautiful you should definitely stay here at least once
Honeymoon of one person”
This is an island that gives me the impression of being a place that is not only scenic but peaceful as well，which is near the capital of Maldives，only spending about 20 minutes can arrive at the destination by the speed boat. The staff is both helpful and enthusiastic，the room with an outdoor shower is spacious too. The color of ocean is ever-changing in different time or dissimilar place. What is perhaps surprising is that we saw dolphins in the speed boat from airport to the island. But there are also some disadvantages，such as the snorkeling environment is not good，cause the coral is not merely less most of them are dead either and there are not a lot of activities. It is sure that there are some little drawbacks but it is not vital，Overall this is an excellent solo trip.
Best Vacation in my life!”
It is simply amazing. Cant even say more than just everything was perfect. Room, Beach, Staff, food, location, Spa. We had the most beautiful vacation ever.
Stunning , immaculate and overwhelming ”
An array of staff greeted us upon our arrival giving positive vibes about our stay , they're all so humble and welcoming . We stayed in an overwater bungalow with pool and used to wake up to the sunrise right from bed with the sun gleaming the turquoise water. The facilities and the interior decorations both inside the rooms and outside are top class ,the view of the green lagoon from the bathroom is a view of a lifetime . We spent hours inside the plunge pool gazing at the infinity of the ocean . Breakfast has plenty of options with custom counters to prepare your favorite omelette or pan cakes or even waffles . The restaurants are tailor made for fine dining and exhibit a chic decor . Sunset views from the chill Bar are spectacular . The corals in the reef are all bleached so you may have to venture a bit into the lagoon to explore the marine life though you could see some schools of fishes, baby sharks and even turtles. Staff always wear a smile and courteous
I've booked a water villa w pool for my birthday celebration. I get a nice view. A complimentary birthday cake & chocolate. The room is spacious and clean. Love every inch of the room. The pool is clean. The staircase down to the sea is mouldy due to algae so its a but slippery and gotta be careful. Otherwise not an issue. The bathtub is huge & clean. The in house dining is fantastic. The sea, sand are all clean & the area are well kept. The staffs are well mannered & friendly. They interact alot with my daughter & she loves it. Snorkelling point is good for those who cnt swim further. And the most likely is my flight is late night and they gave us a complimentary room for us to freshen up. Thank you for the thoughtful gesture. I will definitely recommend this and come again. Thank you velassaru team.
The resort is beautiful and offers a variety of activities to it's guest. The staff is more than hospitable and very friendly. The staff have something or the other planned every day for it's guests, do ensure you keep yourself updated. The resort offers 3-4 dining boutique restaurants but ensure that you book it as soon as you come or before you actually arrive as they offer limited seating (every night) and are more likely to be booked during your stay. I would highly recommend staying at Velassaru and I will definitely come back to this resort.
We had a wonderful 3 nights stay in Velassaru Maldives Resort. The food collections are tooooo many and wonderful. The staffs are soooo kind and took care of us well before we request for something. I would say this one is real 5* resort and wish to go again near future.
Pros Everything. If you want the definition of Great Customer Service. This is it. They have thought of everything. Staff will do everything and anything for you. Always greet you with a smile. Food is high end and caters for all. Grounds are immaculate and at all times. Con Bed too soft
Boutique & Luxury Hotel”
Excellent and Willing Team, who make your stay enjoyable. They were not geared up for Indian food, but went out of the way to make our stay convenient with excellent Vegetarian options. Special mention has to go to their duty manager Sahifu (hope I got his spelling right),& Chef - Vasantha and Amit Bharadwaj.
Best resort in the Maldives ”
This is our third holiday at Velassaru . We have looked at so many resorts in the Maldives and just can’t find another resorts that covers all our needs from Value for money Location etc. I can’t fault this resort on anything. Every single staff member go out there way to help you and make you feel welcome. Can’t wait for our next visit.
Perfect Honeymoon Vacation”
So much love for this beautiful resort ♥️ Complete recreational facilities, 5 restaurants that offer delicious maldivian and international cuisine. Amazing staff - impeccable service. 👏🏼 The best part - safe to swim everywhere . We had an amazing time! ♥️ Keep it up guys!
Top marks for the staff at Velassaru - always smiling and courteous. Was given an upgrade from Deluxe Bungalow to Deluxe Villa but strangely, the upgrade was not visible in terms of location quality. In fact the Deluxe Villa was nearer the service jetty than some of the Deluxe Bungalows. Was quite disappointed with the sound and petroleum smell of the service boat when resting at the beach chair. The resort offered quite a number of complimentary activities. Would like to suggest that the resort organise complimentary Male shopping trips for city dwelling guests. Food was well prepared, though on the expensive side.
Velassaru is indeed a paradise on earth. Great location not so far from Male airport still far enough to enjoy the beauty of the Indian Ocean. We stayed in Water bunglow with pool. Hotel staff is very professional in what they are doing, they always greet you even when you are just walking arounf the island. Staff is very kinf and helpful in whatever you need. There are lots of activities you can do. We did kayaking, jetski, dolphin discovery and more. The main Infinity pool is awesome. Overall the island is very peaceful, well landscaped, clean and concise enough to more around. We loved Velassaru so much would definitely recommend anyone who is wishing to spend some cash.
Wonderful people, wonderful island”
Staff was very attentive and friendly. Island was beautiful just as we had hoped. Close to airport but not too close. Great dive / snorkeling centre. We went on a number of really good excursions. Especially the Manta Ray Excursion. Room was great. Water villa.
Best place for honeymoon
We had the most wonderful time here and have nothing but praises for the resort staff and the facilities. Everything was topnotch and the service was impeccable. The water villa with pool we stayed in was a gem- there’s nothing quite like it. 11/10!
