Hidden away within a collection of islands known as the Noonu Atoll at the most Northern point of the Maldives, you will find The Romantic Pool Villa at Velaa Private Island – possibly the most private over water villa in the world.
Accessible only by boat and suspended above a lagoon with uninterrupted views of the ocean; this villa takes the aspirational escape to an entirely new level. Of course not without its own private chef and butler, as well as boating a Jacuzzi, pool sundeck and sunken bath; the one bedroom villa also plays host to its very own personal gym and spa treatment rooms tailored to a unique experience beyond expectations.
As part of the only resort in the Maldives that has a strict no drone rule, in-room dining direct to the ocean, a ratio of 1:8 guests to staff and dedicated butlers; it may well be the Maldives most coveted over water villa.
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 realization of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” 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 exclusive 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 residences and four four-bedroom residences, while 18 are built over water.
*Velaa Private Island was voted one of the top 5 resorts in the world by Travel + Leisure in February 2016.
