About Velaa Private Island
Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”.
Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body.
The resort comprises 45 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 45 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
Velaa Private Island has been awarded “Best Maldives Resort” and “Best New Resort” by Linara Travel (LT) Maldives Awards (2014). In addition, Velaa has won (co-won) a record of 18 awards in different criteria. The full list of awards is avaiable here:
