VELASSARU MALDIVES

Hotel rating:

Velassaru Resort is situated in South Male Atoll just a 25-minute speedboat ride from Male International Airport. On your boat trip you may be lucky to see groups of dolphins spinning around which is a special experience just from the very beginning. The island is rather small in its size so you can walk it along in 15 minutes.

However despite being full, the resort doesn’t feel busy at all which is a testament to the layout and use of space. The Velassaru Resort has a really cool vibe and rather a young and stylish crowd. The staff is amazingly well organized and caring. Whenever you need them – they are there for you.

From some points there is a view of Male in the distance although at times it is hidden by haze. Note that while choosing this resort if you don’t want see any sign of the mainland. Anyway the environment is relaxing and peaceful and you will find a lot of things to do on the island. The colors of the lagoon are just amazing, vegetation and fauna abounds.

You get not only every kind of fishes and dwarf sharks swimming around your feet, you can also see herons on the beach and other colorful and friendly birds sharing the island with you. And during dusk you can also see some bats flying from one palm tree to another.

Beach and Reef

The beach is lovely and well maintained. It’s just what you expect from Maldives – gorgeous soft white sand and the water of a bright turquoise color.
The house reef is just 150 meter far from the island. The sunset side of the beach features top snorkeling in the calm lagoon. Although at certain places the current can be a little strong so it’s better to snorkel with flippers (which the resort provides to you for free).

Snorkeling is good, especially around the Water Villas. There you have the best possibility to see multiple big fishes, sharks and even manta rays. However you may see small reef sharks, stingrays and other large fish within a meter from the beach as well.

Despite there is no kids club on the island you will find many complimentary activities for children daily like kids yoga, face painting, cooking classes etc. During the day the staff comes round with cold towels, fruits, juices and twice a day an ice cream man makes a round on a bike.

Diving
The Dive Center at Velassaru offers certified PADI courses for all levels of experience. You will have an opportunity to visit Kuda Giri Wreck which is literally a sunken ship inhabited by gigantic sea turtles, napoleon fish, shrimps and lobsters. For the more experienced divers they offer drift-diving through a two-kilometer canal at Protected Marine Reserve. Here you may observe reef and white sharks, tuna and barracuda fish.

However if you are a not a very experienced scuba diver, you have to be careful about full moon days because of the washing machine currents which may occur at certain places. February and March are said to be the best months for the best diving experience with the best visibility and little humidity.

Other Activities
Glide Water Sports center offers a range of activities, such as jet skiing, standup paddleboard, kneeboarding, wakeboarding, catamaran sailing, kitesurfing or parasailing. Molokini glass kayaking should be another cool way to experience the underwater world. Scheduled excursions range from the usual snorkeling trips, to night fishing and dolphin safari trips.
