My husband and I had an amazing time at Velassaru. The property was very clean with very friendly staff. We had a wonderful time staying in the over the water room that we took and it totally was worth it. Definitely would recommend and would love to go back again.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Staying at Velassaru was like a dream come true. This was a very special one as it was for our honeymoon trip. Each and every staff member from the front desk, waiters, cleaners, shop staff, maintenance, even the chefs we talked with were so friendly and we honestly felt like royalty there. We even ventured off for an overnight stay at one other resort on another island but we keot talking about how much we missed this place. Everything from the good food and drinks we had every day, the pristine beaches, the well kept island, the photography session was just beyond our highest expectations. We are so glad and extremely happy we got to see Maldives and staying at Velassaru made it an memorable one. We are hoping to revisit here once again hopefully in the near future and quite possibly with children.
