Velaa Private Island the latest Maldives Dream Resort
Velaa Private Island Maldives – Aerial
The long awaited and most talked Private Island Retreat of Maldives opened its very exclusive doors in December 2013.
Located in the beautiful Noonu Atoll, in Northern Maldives, Velaa Private Island is a small rounded Island covering just 20 hectares dedicated itself to Luxury, Privacy and Extraordinary.
The Resort is born from the Dream of 2 people: Jiri Smejc and his wife Radka, who fell in love in the Maldives and share a common passion for the Islands. ( we love this story ! ). Together, they decided to open their own private Maldives Retreat, an Island that would fulfill their dreams about a perfect place on the Earth… Velaa Private Island is a true inspiration from their various journeys in the archipelago.
An architecture inspired by Nature
Its name “Velaa” ( which means Turtle in Dhivehi, the Maldivian language ) was chosen to embody the generations of sea turtles that flock on the island to nest and hatch. Inspired by the beautiful Turtles, the Resort Designer has kept Turtle motifs and colors as a main pattern to imagine the property. 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.
In order to preserve their precious population, Velaa Private Island has also ensured plenty of room for its marine visitors, with a hatchery and conservation plan in place.
The Resort defines itself as an Unique and Ultimate Luxurious Private Retreat that will bring its guests “Beyond Luxury” . Knowing the high levels of hospitality in the Maldives and the plethora of Top Luxury Resorts, Velaa Private Island had to bring something more.
As expected, it is not surprising that you will find there the first class service and luxury amenities that contribute to make the Maldives one of the most exceptional destination in the world. But looking at the resort features and the owner inspiration, it looks that Velaa Private Island has put another “Golden” touch into it.
