Enjoy the worlds best luxury at Velaa Private Island
Velaa Private Island has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as the guiding principles while allowing the Indian Ocean to take centre stage. At one with nature, each of the private retreats is built using local materials, combining contemporary flourishes with interiors designed for sensory exploration. Generous terraces and sultry gazebos are positioned to maximise shade, breeze, views and privacy, allowing for total immersion in nature.
The resort comprises 43 private villas, houses and residences and 4 four-bedroom residences. While 18 of the 43 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
These detached one-bedroom beachfront pool villas are sumptuously furnished. Mahogany louvered panels and intricate lofty ceilings give a colonial feel while mahogany furniture and suspended bamboo lights give a natural feel. Wall to wall glass doors frame the terrace and private pool.
Natural materials and colours bring the outside in, while a suspended chair adds an element of playful refinement. These private one-bedroom beachfront pool villas feature a separate large living room, outdoor terrace and private pool and indoor bathroom.
In lush foliage flanked by gently swaying palms, the two-bedroom beachfront houses are ideal for families. The large living area works as a retreat in the day and a social hub in the evening, leading to the kitchen area, complete with bar and high stools, which is practical for both catering and socialising over snacks/meals.
Along an extended jetty, the villas on this crescent have uninterrupted views of the ocean and private pools. Overhanging thatch offers shade over the dining area, while the bedroom and bathroom open onto the terrace, pool and sun deck, with steps leading alluringly into the ocean.
With uninterrupted ocean views facing the sunset and private pools facing the sunset, these villas are dreamlike in design, separated by canvas sails ensuring utmost privacy. Thatched roofing shades the outdoor dining area, while the bedroom and bathroom open onto the terrace. The pool and sun deck have steps leading into the ocean, while under the gazebo a vast daybed scattered with cushions catches the final moments of the sunset.
Prestigiously located on the tip of the island, in an exclusive private domain, this two-bedroom overwater residence fringed with traditional thatch offers elegant living space with carefully curated elements. Louvered shutters let the breeze flow through, while a deep sofa is covered in scatter cushions, ideal for settling down with a good book. The dining area provides a central space while the ocean is the backdrop from every aspect.
