10/10 Exceptional

Our stay at the Velassaru Resort was exceptional! The transfer from another hotel was very polished and well organized. The check-in process was speedy, professional, and personal. The entire staff was professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful to guests. Our over-the-water bungalow with private pool and ocean access was superior and offered stunning views of the Indian Ocean. The hotel provided a well-equipped Fitness Center and a variety of water activities. The guests were issued complimentary snorkel equipment.The local food presentation, as well as the type, was among the best we've ever had at any resort. The food was always fresh, hot, and very flavorful. Guest services were very generous by providing a late check-out since our flight did not depart until 1900. Thank you, Velassaru, for providing us with an unforgettable experience!!
