Velassaru South Male atoll

Our Opinion
Part of the Universal group of resorts, Velassaru is just a 30 minute speedboat journey from Male. Set in a beautiful lagoon it has has lovely white sandy beaches and a good range of accommodation and dining options. There is no house reef so snorkelling can be done at one of the many nearby reefs.

Visitors to Velassaru should note, part of the island faces Thilafushi, otherwise known as Burning Island.
Secluded but not isolated, Velassaru is located on a private coral island on South Male Atoll, just a 30-minute speedboat ride away from Male international airport.

The island boasts fine white sandy beaches and a turquoise lagoon - the resort buildings and accommodation designed to convey minimalist chic in teak, stone and thatch.
