Jet off to Velaa Private Island Maldives in ultimate safety, comfort with VistaJet

Velaa Private Island Maldives has partnered with VistaJet, the first and only global business aviation company, to offer affluent travellers private and safe journeys to the ultra-luxury escape in paradise.

During a challenging time with the Covid-19 pandemic, planning and researching future journeys is high on the agenda, and a vast majority — 80 per cent — of global travellers intend to explore as soon as they are able.

With privacy and safety becoming paramount, health is being factored into travel choices more than ever before.

The concept of safety is also changing. Historically, travellers associated safety only with what happens outside of the aircraft. Now, the journey to the aircraft, the in-cabin experience and the final destination are the driving factors.

As the number of touchpoints significantly decreases when flying private — 20 interactions as opposed to 700 when flying commercial — the travel industry expects to see an increased number of first-time private flyers looking for safer and more reliable alternatives.

Research shows that 79 per cent of high net worth individuals would be more inclined to travel by private jet than before, and this is reflected in VistaJet’s new incoming requests: as of June, 71 per cent are from passengers who have not regularly used business aviation solutions before.

Through the partnership with Velaa Private Island, the VistaJet Private Office can exclusively facilitate safe point-to-point journeys from flight to destination for members to enjoy a memorable holiday with the maximum peace of mind — introducing the ultimate notion of private travel.

“Your safe haven is only a flight away. Journey to the pristine white sands of Velaa in privacy and comfort with VistaJet,” an announcement by the resort read.

Velaa Private Island has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as its guiding principles, while allowing the Indian Ocean to take centre stage.

Within 35 minutes of landing, VistaJet members can sink their toes into the island sand with their personal butler on hand to take care of check in and any individual requirements.

All 47 private villas — 18 suspended over water — feature private pools. For those wanting ultimate seclusion, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing for even more privacy.

Private island buyouts can also be arranged.

Guests can contribute to the Velaa Private Island Coral Project — one of the largest coral reef restoration projects in the Maldives — by adopting a coral plantation and following its development with the marine biology team.

Private moments, from deserted island picnics to wine tastings, are tailored to the occasion and guest preferences.

There are also unlimited activities for all to enjoy in privacy, from golf at the Velaa Golf Academy designed by Ryder Cup Captain José María Olazábal, to the Maldives’ only snow room in the Velaa Spa. No activity is ever shared.
