The Maldives Island for All Ages: Velaa Private Island

The Maldives Island for All Ages: Velaa Private Island

With a creative event and experiences team, Velaa is a multi-generational haven that is one of the most private islands on earth. From the moment children are met at the jetty they are handed a personal invitation to the kids' club, their sitter remains the same throughout their holiday, freshly prepared food is on offer daily and there is even a kids' water park especially co-designed by the owner's daughter.

Crafting new activities and exciting themed events surrounding every season, most recently including a Lion King theme where the island was transformed into the Pride Lands of Africa -  the island events team can also create the most opulent parties and dream birthday cakes whilst they continually offer an endless collection of activities including mocktail and cooking masterclasses and outdoor movie nights with popcorn under the stars. Impeccable attention to detail also offers family groups both adult and kids sized bikes and an extensive array of baby and kids amenities from in-room bottle sterilizers, baby baths and food blenders and baby changing kits.

Velaa Private Island is hidden away within a collection of islands at the most Northern point of the Maldives. The resort comprises 43 private villas, houses and residences and 4 four-bedroom residences, which are ideal for larger family groups - one of which has recently been redesigned by world renowned designer Patricia Urquiola.

And for everyone else looking to recline and indulge, Velaa has created a new culinary concept at its signature restaurant Aragu allowing diners to create their very own tasting menus based on personal preference and offers the finest treatments at its My Blend by Clarins Spa. Whilst for active types, it is also the only Maldivian resort with its own private semi-submarine, is home to Bond-worthy state of the art high tech water toys, has shaded tennis courts, a climbing wall, squash, badminton and beach volleyball courts as well as a nine-hole golf course and academy designed by world famous golfer and Ryder Cup-winning captain José María Olazábal – ensuring there is something for everyone.
