We had an absolute amazing stay at Velassaru. From the moment we arrived till we left we felt like we're in paradise. Staff is very friendly and helpful and did their best to make it stay is comfortable and is memorable as possible. We stayed in the beach house and we loved to have our own pennate because and an amazing ocean view. Room has an enormous bathroom and a shower under the sky. It's only 39 minute but ride from Male, so you wan't be wasting time on transfer. It's a kid friendly resort, our 4 year old loved it. Food and activities are not cheap, there are few complimentary activities throughout the week.

Everything about this resort was amazing, clean and staff were friendly and helpful in anyway possible !

The hotel was absolutely amazing, the staff was very friendly at all times. Very kind with all the requests and very comprehensive with the situation of the pool being fixed at the same days we were staying and my break up of marriage, allowing myself and my ex-wife to have a such great time together at the island. We got this amazing upgrade for the water villa, which is breathtaking the view and being surrounded by fishes and saline by the window at all times. Absolutely would come back and recommend to anyone looking for a magical relaxing vacation in paradise.

Loved my time at the Velassaru Maldives. The experience was amazing!!!

Overall an amazing experience. Excellent!! Food was amazing, staff was equally amazing. Everyone was polite and friendly and welcoming...would definitely like to come back again...

nice lagoon, friendly and attentive staff. Resort layout is nice specially for walking around the island.

We love Velassaru , our first time in Maldives, they have exceeded our expectations, the hospitality of the staff were awesome.. this is a very nice resort, close to male airport, not too pricey with the food.. we were surprised, it was actually affordable.. we love snorkeling on the morning,, a lot of fish.. we stayed at the water bungalow with pool and it was the best experience that we had.. we will come back here again The only downside is that you can see from the other island that they were doing some construction.. I hope maldives stay the same way even when there are tourists coming in, it does not destroy the beautiful corals that they have

This place was spectacular, from the staff to the food to the manicured grounds. Even my kids were impressed, I would recommend this place 1000%!

It was a very clean and well maintained resort. It has amazing natural beauty. Staffs are awesome. Service is beyond your expectation and they are very very polite people. They will make sure you are having a great time there. It’s 30 minutes from Male airport. But they arrange the speed boat. The process is preety smooth. Food quality is good and enough variety is there. I would highly recommend this place if you are planning to go to Maldives.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Velassaru last week, the staff was super friendly, food was very good, the room was very clean and the bed super comfortable, we were very pleased with our choice and would recommend to anyone.

Our honeymoon stay was exceptional. The hotel was top notch. Amazingly friendly staff. Very customer oriented. Always got greeted with a smile and was constantly asked if something can be done to make my stay more enjoyable. Weather was fabulous. Restaurants was AAA. Spa is a must. Definitely worth another visit in the future and highly recommended.

Beautiful beaches with excellent staffs who's always around to make sure all their guests are well taking care of. Going back in a few months :)

Everything was perfect. We enjoyed our honeymoon there

Very nice! All and all very nice! Great family team management! We will return! My recommendations: 1. Lower prices on activities; Parasailing, skiing, etc. 2. When checking out, we paid to extend are stay thru the afternoon, they moved us to a small room in the outback, they should have put us in a regular villa like we had. 3. The chairs at the desk are too low, chairs at check in registration, when sitting you are sitting with the desk at your chin, plus harder for elder lies to get up. All above comments are constructive criticism, please advise. Russell
