Velassaru Maldives

– The Velassaru Maldives could easily be heaven on Earth. Set along perfect sandy white beaches, turquoise waters, and natural beauty, it’s not hard to see why. Only accessible by speedboat, the island offers complete privacy and seclusion making it frequented by royals and celebrities alike.

Our favorite suite has to be the Water Suite with a glass bottom to see the pretty blue lagoon below. But honestly, any suite is stunning with private pools, outdoor rain showers, large, airy windows and high vaulted ceilings. The perfect setting to view that glistening Indian Ocean.
Take your pick from the Velassaru Maldives’ five restaurant and two bars. Go gourmet at Etesian and go casual at Sand where dining al fresco on a beachside pavilion is the deal. Stay along the beach and sip refreshing drinks at Fen Bar. Or take in the water view perched high on the sundeck at Chill Bar (hint – a large glass of white wine makes the view even better).
Since this is one of the most romantic locales in the world, book yourself a private dinner for two on the beach. Then make an appointment pour deux at the Spa At Velassaru for sheer bliss.
