The stunning beauty of the Maldives has never been in question, but you can visit this paradise without having to share it with large numbers of tourists, by staying on Velaa Private Island in a stunning villa looking out on the beautiful crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean. Security, privacy and comfort are of the highest importance here, and you will certainly be treated like royalty by the island staff, who are ready, willing and able to cater to your every need.

Each villa on the island is designed with luxury in mind, and whether you choose the Deluxe Beach Pool Villa, with swinging chair, atrium and private pool, or opt for a 4 bedroom private residence with 2 gazebos, private pool and gym, you’ll take advantage of stunning beachfront scenery and high quality, luxurious décor.

With several restaurants on the island to try, there will be no shortage of gastronomic delights, with fresh ingredients and a focus on providing everything a guest could wish for. Dine in comfort alongside wonderful waterfront views and enjoy a cool drink under the stars at the islands champagne bar – the perfect end to a wonderful evening.

Of course, all the relaxation of this beautiful island may have you pining for something a little more invigorating, and Velaa Private Island have this covered too. With watersports such as windsurfing, diving lessons or even a boat trip combined with a shopping experience, you’re sure not to run out of things to do. If yoga and fitness are more your speed, then a tailored wellness program that can include personal training, yoga and meditation can be arranged to suit you.

Whatever your whim, Velaa Private Island can cater to it.

Now then: I’m looking forward to meeting the team from Veela our upcoming Connections Luxury event in Abu Dhabi (6-9th September). If you’d like to know more about participating, please drop me a note at
