Luxury Boutique Resort Velassaru, Maldives

Velassaru by Universal Resorts is a sophisticated resort that pairs contemporary luxury with the natural beauty of the Maldives.  This 21 acre coral island is situated in the quiet South Malé Atoll and is possibly the finest resort accessible via speedboat.  With its pearl-dust beaches, turquoise lagoon and myriad coconut groves the island is a magical setting for this 5-star resort.

The villas on this Maldive resort are contemporary and unique.  The island itself is corralled by 54 Deluxe Bungalows and 31 Beach Villas to the north.  Each Deluxe Bungalow is subtly integrated into the natural foliage and provides a spacious intimacy; expertly crafted, these buildings are rendered with wood, stone and thatch.  Beach villas are slightly larger and look out on to the beachfront with a sprawling sea-facing terrace.

Sprouting from the northern tip of the island is a jetty hosting 18 Water Bungalows, each one rising out of the lagoon on stilts.  These villas offer unfettered views of the Indian Ocean, whether from the king-sized bed through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors, or via the over-water deck leading down to the crystal clear waters below.  Similarly, from the south-west of the island snakes a further jetty housing 28 large Water Villas and the resort’s Presidential Suite.

These huge villas represent unparalleled splendour, four have private pools and all feature king-size silk draped beds and a full sea-facing wall opening out onto a spacious terrace above the lucid waters of the lagoon. For those looking for that extra comfort the luxury Maldives resort offers the one and only Pool Villa and Water Suite both with large private pools.  All of the resort’s accommodation comes equipped with an array of modern amenities as standard.

A location of exquisite romance and beauty, the luxury Maldives resort has been designed for couples, families and the young at heart.  This stunning new resort with distinctive style and personality combines affordable chic with true Maldivian hospitality.
