Velaa Private Island

  • 47 Suites

Emanating from the visionary aspirations of Radka and Jiří Šmejc to create a luxurious retreat, Velaa Private Island distinguishes itself in a category of its own. Situated in the Noonu atoll, Velaa's seclusion and authenticity create moments exclusively crafted for the most discerning guests. This property is home to 47 intricately designed and furnished villas, houses, and exclusive residences, all serviced by personal butlers.

Velaa’s range of amenities are unseen elsewhere in the Maldives, including 4 dining venues, 4 bars, and a wine cellar. The distinguished Velaa Spa features the country’s only “snow room” while Velaa Wellbeing Village offers a dedicated Ayurvedic doctor, steam room, and floating pod. Plus, a Yoga Pavilion, Pilates Studio, and wellness-inspired Faiy Restaurant.

In addition to its remarkable amenities, Velaa offers private experiences with expert trainers and masters. Velaa even features its own golf course, meticulously designed by 2-time Masters Champion José María Olazábal. The island’s dive center offers excursions, PADI certification courses, and snorkeling. Guests can also enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, and more. Tailor-made excursions include luxury yacht trips, dolphin watching, and fishing expeditions in the Indian Ocean.

Velaa Private Island is a 45-minute seaplane flight north of the Maldivian capital of Malé.
