LOCATION A hop, skip and a boat ride from the plane. You'll be sipping a cocktail on the beach within an hour of landing.

WHO BOOKS? Spend-savvy honeymooners who want to indulge without worrying about the bill at the end, thanks to the Velassaru Indulgence Package.


ROOM LUST The vibe here is chilled and the resort oozes contemporary chic. All the villas are decked out in a slick, modern style - think bright, light and clean-lined design in an island palette of turquoise, coral and sandy creams. Book a Water Suite to watch the marine life through your floor, or the stars from your private plunge pool.

RELAX… Foodies will be spoilt for choice with five restaurants and two bars to choose from, spanning cuisine from the Mediterranean to the Maldives, sushi to Spanish tapas. For indulgence of a different kind, wander to the overwater spa. Embrace the power of the ocean that surrounds you with a reviving Oceanic Delight treatment, where you will be buffed, wrapped and massaged into feeling as good as new.


ACTION! As easy as it is to just sprawl in one of the beach-club-style cabanas by the main infinity pool, even the most determined sunlounger addict will find it hard not to be tempted by Velassaru's fun range of activities, which include glass-bottomed kayaks and James Bond-esque Seabobs to whoosh you through the water.

WE LOVE Movie night on the beach under the stars- complete with popcorn!

GET THERE 25-minute speedboat from Male.
