The Angsana Velavaru is a contemporary, 4.5-star luxury beach resort with villas on the private island of Velavaru (Turtle Island) in the Maldives, four kilometres from Meedhoo Island in the South Nilandhe Atoll. It is set within an azure lagoon surrounded by almond and angsana trees.
This eco- and family-friendly resort offers childcare and children's activities, as well as a family/children's play area on the beach. There's also an on-site watersports centre offering free snorkelling via a brief 5-minute boat trip to the house reef, a diving centre offering lessons, and a marine lab, where children and adults can participate in the daily stingray-feeding programme while learning about the reef ecosystems and sea creatures (stingrays, whale sharks, dolphins, sea turtles, etc). Other activities available at the resort include dolphin-watching excursions on demand, night-fishing trips on a traditional Maldivian wooden dhoni sailing ship, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, kayaking and glass-bottomed canoeing, plus cookery classes and free daily yoga sessions.
The refined beach villas have colourful décor, a thatched-roof veranda, free Wi-Fi, a 32-inch flat-screen TV, a mini bar, bathrobes and slippers, and tea- and coffee-making equipment. The innovative two-storey, high-ceilinged in-ocean villas near the reefs also feature a top-deck sala with sun beds, glassed-in bathtubs, and a private over-water infinity pool with an over-water trampoline and hammocks. Upgraded villas add additional living rooms, iPod docks and Nespresso machines. A complimentary buffet breakfast is included, and room service is available.
Additional amenities include an award-winning spa (it won Best Luxury Beauty Spa in Maldives in the 2013 World Luxury Spa Awards) offering massages and other treatments. Dining options include three buffet-style and á la carte restaurants featuring international cuisine with a Maldivian twist, including one built over a coral reef, with the option of a romantic seafood barbecue dinner on the beach. There's also a casual bar for drinks, light meals and bar snacks, with occasional live local music; a garden; a terrace; a library; a dive centre; a watersports centre; a kids' club and baby-sitting/childcare services; a games room; a concierge and a 24-hour front desk; a business centre; conference/meeting facilities; a gift shop; and a fitness centre.
