The private pool was a game changer. It’s perfect for people who would rather chill in a pool with significant other rather than a big public pool

Velassaru is a very nice resort. The staff, attention to detail is very nice. This time the resort was super busy but recently then staff coped very well. We are return customers and love the resort but as time is moving on the villas etc might require some rethinking. They are not dated or anything it’s just that Maldives has so much competition that adding some more modern so to say elements would be helpful. Overall amazing place and I am sure we will be back. Ps the beef in Japanese restaurant is super amazing :). And sunset fishing is amazing experience.
