The name of this private retreat, an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, means “Turtle Island” in the local language, named after generations of sea turtles that have flocked there to nest and hatch.
The resort design borrows from this theme, with turtle motifs, and the colors and patterns of turtle shell pervading the property. From a broader bird’s eye view which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive overwater villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body. Velaa Private Island also ensures plenty of room for its marine visitors, with a hatchery and conservation plan in place.
Velaa Private Island water sports centre offers windsurf, kayaking, wake boarding, water-skiing, seabob, towable inflatables, stand-up paddle boards and kite surfing. Be surprised by its multiple activities variety, including tennis and golf, or by the excursions and getaways proposed by the Velaa team.
