I stayed 5 nights June 16-21 with my wife in velessaru. We are newly married and were looking for a honeymoon spot in Maldives. Be it the location, food, quietness of the place or be it the hospitality of the staff , velessaru exceeded our expectations. Would love to return here sometime later .

One of the best experiences that I will cherish forever. At Velassaru, not just the place is great but the service as well. They make sure every query or concern is taken care of. So, don’t second guess - it is worth every penny because you will have a lot lovely memories.

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!!
