Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”.
Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a “beyond luxury” exclusive boutiqe hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exlusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body.
The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
More than a kids club, Velaa is an island of discovery where days are filled with endless wonder and new delights; and where imagination is brought to life through the creative inspiration of our very special team.
An innovative concept of pure enjoyment for children from 4-12 years old, the Lha Velaa Kids Club boasts the most extensive kids’ water park in the Maldives which was designed and based on the inspiration of the owner’s daughter.
At Velaa, little guests can enjoy many exciting activities, from playing Maldivian baseball and Koraa [Maldivian hopscotch], to taking part in a talent show or going on a pirate ship adventure, all in addition to extensive festive programmes for children of all ages.
