Velaa Private Island (from $3779)


This private refuge, an elegant combination of Maldivian culture and contemporary luxury, is named "Turtle Island" in the local language, after generations of sea turtles that have flocked here to mate and hatch. An island that offers true solitude to its visitors while yet being versatile enough to offer a variety of first-rate entertainment options.


Velaa Private Island was developed and curated with seclusion and comfort in mind while allowing the Indian Ocean to take center stage. Each of the private retreats is made with local resources, mixing contemporary flourishes with sensory-exploration decor. Large terraces and sultry gazebos are strategically placed to enhance shade, wind, views, and solitude, allowing you complete absorption in nature.


Velaa Private Island, located in the beautiful Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometers north of Male', is an outstanding luxury resort where visitors are pampered like kings. Velaa Private Island is slightly under 20 hectares in size, with a half-kilometer radius in either direction, offering both exclusivity and solitude.
