Angsana Velavaru

5* out of 5 stars

Situated on the castaway island of Velavaru in the beautiful South Nilandhe Atoll (40mins by seaplane from Male), Angsana Velavaru is a tranquil oasis surrounded by azure Indian Ocean waters. Having recently completed a comprehensive renovation programme, this tropical retreat now offers an elevated level of luxury in an authentically Maldivian setting. The impressive new 324sqm pool and decking area unveil a smart new look which continues throughout the villas, kids club and restaurant areas.

The New Look Angsana Velavaru

Refitted Beach Front Infinity Pool Villas now boast a 15sqm plunge pool overlooking the lagoon and all feature chic, airy interiors, as well as expanded terraces and private rear gardens with bathtubs. Angsana Kids Club (Rangers Club) has a new location at the main beach, and features a kids pool, 200sqm private area and designated football ground entrance. Following the renovations, diners at Velavaru may now choose from five restaurants, with new venue Magoo Garden adding a locally inspired al fresco concept to the resort’s diverse dine-around service.

Luxury holidays at Angsana Velavaru Maldives

Broad sandy beaches encircle this one-resort island, lapped by warm shallow waters abundant in marine life; it’s a haven for sunbathers and divers alike. Indeed, the resort is home to one of the best-preserved house reefs in the Maldives, making up to 30 magnificent dive spots available as a result. Lagoon-wide, there are 101 activities with something for everyone – there truly is no lagoon like it.

Velavaru also caters to romantics seeking that one special moment. How does a night on the Castaway Island with your own private chef sound? Or how about a proper pampering session at the award-winning Angsana Spa led by Banyan Tree Spa Academy? Eco-conscious guests will be interested to know about Marine Lab too: the conservation, restoration and education-focused research initiative, which hopes to make the island 100% plastic-free in future.
