Velaa Private Island
in Maldives, Indian Ocean

Velaa Private Island has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as the guiding principles while allowing the Indian Ocean to take centre stage. At one with nature, each of the private retreats is built using local materials, combining contemporary flourishes with interiors designed for sensory exploration. Generous terraces and sultry gazebos are positioned to maximise shade, breeze, views and privacy, allowing for total immersion in nature. The resort comprises 43 private villas, houses and residences and 4 four-bedroom residences. 18 villas are built over water, including the Romantic Pool Residence which can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity, designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar.

The name of this private retreat, an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that have migrated here to nest and hatch.

Velaa Private Residences has four bedrooms accommodating up to 10 guests, a rarity in the Maldives. Elegant contemporary design and 1,350 square metres of private interior and exterior space, inclusive of two terraces, a pool and a courtyard. Secluded on a pristine private beach, the carefully curated interiors deliver comfort, style and elegance in equal measures. These two-storey detached residences are laid out with privacy in mind. Each of the four bedrooms faces the ocean across a stretch of icing sugar sand; the first floor bedrooms have generous balconies while the ground floor opens onto the pool. Indoor and outdoor bathrooms are connected by a garden atrium. Flanked by two gazebos for dining, resting or playing, the pool reflects the ocean and is the central focus. Behind the living space a gym, spa room and outdoor living area offer plenty of quiet spaces to retire to.

Accessible only by boat, this ultra-private one-bedroom villa suspended above the lagoon with uninterrupted views of the ocean offers utmost privacy and romance, making it perfect for honeymooners or those who looking for ultra-luxury,including a private chef and butler. All rooms open onto the terraces, where the Jacuzzi, pool, sundeck and sunken bath offer varying aspects towards the horizon.

Ocean Pool House is prestigiously located on the tip of the island,in an exclusive private domain, this two-bedroom overwater residence fringed with traditional thatch offers an elegant living space with carefully curated elements. Louvered shutters let the breeze flow through, while a deep sofa is covered in scatter cushions, ideal for settling down with a good book. The dining area provides a central space while the ocean is the backdrop from every aspect – from the two spacious bathrooms featuring circular baths, to the elegant bedrooms.Swim in your own pool and relax on the sun deck, or step directly into the lagoon. Kick back under one of two gazebos – one with a sunken hot tub and the other with daybeds.
