Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. From a romantic residence accessible only by speed boat to the best wine selection in The Maldives, here are just a handful of exclusive experiences that await guests at Velaa.

Dine at the acclaimed Aragu Restaurant

In 2021, Aragu broke into Asia’s 100 Best Restaurant ranking, becoming the first restaurant from The Maldives to make the list. Perched over the water, Aragu boasts a spectacular dining room with dazzling ocean views and an intimate setting. Presenting contemporary European cuisine with an Asian twist, Aragu takes the Maldivian dining experience to the next level by combining passion for culinary art with awareness and sustainability. Chef Gaushan De Silva has created an inimitable category of contemporary cuisine by using the skills acquired at the world’s greatest restaurants.

Stay at the extravagant Romantic Pool Residence
Accessible only by boat, this ultra-private one-bedroom villa is suspended above the lagoon, surrounded by uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean. Upon reaching the Romantic Pool Residence private retreat, couples will be greeted by a personal butler and private chef –available around the clock to cater to their every need.

Perfect for honeymooners and couples, the residence exudes romance with total seclusion, an infinity pool, sunken outdoor bath, dining gazebo and sprawling terrace with luxurious daybeds to catch the idyllic Maldivian sunsets. With steps leading directly into the lagoon, it’ll be hard to find a reason to leave your private residence.

A unique golfing experience in paradise

Aided by the latest swing analysis technology and a Trackman simulator, coaches can help guests finetune their game.

The best wine selection in The Maldives

An evening at Tavaru starts with climbing the ivory-white tower – one of the tallest in the archipelago. Once at the top, the view alone is worth the trip, as guests are greeted by a sweeping spectacle of azure waters. The Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant features a live grill and houses the most exclusive collection of wine in the Indian Ocean. From boutique wineries to established domains, guests can uncover rare gems from what is by far The Maldives most exclusive wine cellar.

The ultimate wellness escape
