Velassaru Maldives celebrates 10 years in luxury service
Velassaru Maldives has celebrated 10 years in luxury service.
Part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, Velassaru celebrated this milestone in March.
From a complete relaunch in 2009 to more large-scale of accommodation and facilities renovation, Velassaru has been maintaining the same sophisticated and understated luxury style reflected throughout the resort’s design. Whilst guests clearly appreciate the resort’s facilities, its elevated dining experience and exceptional service have kept them coming back.
“Thank you for the first 10 years, indeed a reason to celebrate and 2019 is off to a good start at Velassaru Maldives,” Bill Ignatiadis, General Manager at Velassaru, was quoted in a statement, as saying.
Owned and operated by leading local hotel group Universal Resorts, Velassaru is located in South Male Atoll and accessible by a short 25-minute speedboat ride from the main Velana International Airport.
Velassaru offers luxurious beachfront and overwater accommodation with uninterrupted ocean views. Featuring wooden ceilings and floors for a tropical atmosphere, the contemporary-styled villas and bungalows offer chic serenity.
A wide variety of international specialities are offered at Velassaru’s five restaurants, including fresh contemporary seafood, Japanese, international and grill pan Indian options. The two beach bars serve cocktails and wines.
Guests can enjoy relaxing spa treatments in overwater pavilions, or hop on a Maldivian boat and watch the crew demonstrate traditional fishing methods. Other resort facilities include a fitness centre, tennis court and infinity pool with the view of the beach and the ocean.
