Hotel Overview

Velaa Private Island is the realization of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway. This unique destination was developed to embody the very best of this unique archipelago, bathed by azure skies in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean.

Located in the gorgeous Noonu Atoll, 187 kilometres north of Male, Velaa Private Island is an exceptional luxury retreat where our 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 centre 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 derived from the generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch; it is comprised of 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. Here all details have been considered: each villa comes with a personal butler, all services offered can be tailored to personal specifications, and attention to...

Unique Facts

Velaa Private Island is so fantastical, snow falls here. At least it does in the Maldives' only snow room, just one of the ultimate indulgences of this ultra-luxe resort. Privileged guests can relax in luxury at My Blend by Clarins Spa, hone their short game at the Velaa Golf Academy designed by Ryder Cup Captain José María Olazábal, or explore the undersea world with a Seabob, or “Bond-style,” semi-submarine. Polite luxury is the motto here, where all 47 private villas — 18 suspended over water — feature private pools and butler service.

Guest Rooms & Suites

Beach pool VILLA

These detached one-bedroom beach front villas are sumptuously furnished. Mahogany louvered panels and intricate lofty ceilings impart a colonial feel, while teak furniture and suspended bamboo lights bring nature indoors. Wall to wall glass doors frame the terrace and private pool. By day the villas are filled with light, yet remain secluded by clusters of palms. An indoor bathroom with Romeo and Juliet basins opens onto a large outdoor bathroom connected by a garden atrium where a gazebo covered daybed overlooks the oversized tub. Day beds, swinging chairs and an alfresco dining area face the Indian Ocean.


In lush foliage flanked by gently swaying palms, the two-bedroom beachfront houses are ideal for families. The large living area works as a retreat in the day and a social hub in the evening. It leads to the kitchen area, complete with bar and high stools, which is practical for both catering and socialising over snacks and meals. Bedrooms blend light and privacy using louvered wood, natural materials and lights suspended from high vaulted ceilings. Rattan swinging chairs add a sense of fun to the elegant décor. Outside, there is a spacious terrace with a large private pool, carefully positioned day beds and a standalone outdoor dining platform which offers panoramic views of the lagoon.


Natural materials and colours bring the outside in, while a suspended chair adds an element of playful refinement. These private one-bedroom beachfront pool villas feature a large separate living room, outdoor terrace and private pool and indoor bathroom. The Zen-like outdoor bathroom features a huge bath and deck, and a reclining daybed under a pillared podium connected by a garden atrium. The alfresco dining area by the pool is the place to be at sunset.
