Velaa Private Residence, Velaa Private Island, The Maldives

By Elite Traveler |  January 13 2020


The vision of billionaire Jiri Smejc, Velaa Private Island exceeds all expectations — not an easy feat in these heavenly atolls. Enjoy superb dining, a Spa by Clarins, a snow room, golf academy and a roster of water activities. While the accommodations are all exceptional (honeymooners, opt for the Romantic Pool Residence), the Velaa Private Residence is the largest, with four ocean-facing bedrooms, a gym, massage room, living room, dining area and separate kitchen. It’s set on a private beach, but the villa’s vast exterior space comes with a 60-ft infinity pool, a spa, two gazebos with daybeds, a 450-ft terrace and a third gazebo with an outdoor kitchen, dining area and pool table — perfect for big groups or family vacations. Be sure to visit the swirling, three-story Tavaru Tower wine cellar — it holds $3m worth of rare and exceptional bottles.

From $17,600 per night. Contact Michal Smejc, general manager, reservations@velaaisland.com, +960 656 5000, velaaprivateisland.com
