Velaa Private Island

Velaa Private Island is the realization of a dream to create a 'beyond luxury' exclusive boutique hideaway. This unique destination was developed to embody this unique archipelago's very best, bathed by azure skies in the Indian Ocean's aquamarine waters. Located in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometers north of Male, Velaa Private Island is an exceptional luxury retreat where the guests are treated like royalty.

Velaa Private Island has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as the guiding principles while allowing the Indian Ocean to take center stage. Tucked away within the collection of islands that form the Noonu Atoll, Velaa Private Island is elegantly positioned to overlook enchanting vistas of a cerulean ocean. Its name is derived from the generations of sea turtles who flock there to nest and hatch; it comprises 45 private villas, houses, and exclusive residences, sleeping from 1-10 guests.

The resort also includes a Romantic Pool Residence, which can only be reached by boat, allowing even more exclusivity. All details have been considered - each villa comes with a personal butler. All services offered can be tailored to personal specifications. Attention to detail everywhere is impeccable: stone pavements from the desert in Jordan, Indonesian flowerpots, luxury wood paneling from Borneo, and glimmering Italian marble.

Velaa shares its name and home with the generations of sea turtles who inhabited the island for countless years. The colors and patterns of a turtle shell make subtle nuances in the design. Simultaneously, Velaa's exclusive over-water villas resemble a turtle's head, with the island forming the body from a broader aerial view. Designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar, the overall design concept is contemporary yet intimate, with Maldivian nuances.
