Velaa Private Island

By Theodora Halstead |  December 20 2017


Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolář, Velaa Private Island is the realization of island owner Jiri Smejc’s dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway. Velaa means Turtle Island in the local language, named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest. The island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the natural island forming the body.
