Let’s talk travel to the Maldives – specifically to Angsana Velavaru. Just the seaplane ride there is awesomely breathtaking.
Discover the Maldives with Angsana Velavaru

Watch the atolls dotting the blue-green ocean whizz by and then….white beaches, clear contrasting waters and exotic greenery draw closer and you just can’t wait to jump off into that heavenly place that is Angsana Velavaru. 

Angsana Velavaru Resort

Kick off those shoes and feel the warm, sun-kissed sand between your toes….this is the first feel of paradise for guests to the Maldives.

Long walk from one end of the island to the other

If you’ve seen the movie ‘Bounty’ you know just what we’re talking about. It feels as if the movie was shot here; it’s so beautiful. And it’s also intimate. So much so that you can walk from one end of the island to the other, enjoying dawn and sunset and everything in-between.

Ahmed Zahir - General Manager, Angsana Velavaru

And what makes the resort super cool is the many unique details that separate it from the rest of the pack. We heard all about these from the resort’s General Manager Ahmed Zahir.

Angsana Velavaru - Water Villas

The lagoon of Angsana Velavaru is a catalyst in bringing about a totally new concept in the Maldives, which includes villas in the water that are fully separated from the mainland and also lay claim to their own individual infrastructure. So, in a way, these are each floating resorts within the main resort itself! How awesome is that!

Spectacular Two-storey Affairs - Water Villas Angsana Velavaru

Think exotic and this is it. Maldivian dhonis take you to and from your water villa and the mainland. The villas themselves are spectacular two-storey affairs that contain a bedroom and bathroom with ocean views on the ground floor, in addition to a living room and terrace with private pool and a truly out-of-this-world scenic decent into the water. It’s also pretty great that there’s a spacious gazebo included in the villa if you want to have a nice, romantic dinner. The second floor has an outdoor seating area for some much-needed relaxation.

Angsana Velavaru - Beachfront Villas

Still, if you’re not much of a ‘water-under-your-feet’ kind of person and like some good, solid earth instead, the beachfront villas are just as good with private pool and every amenity you need.

Angsana Velavaru - Oceanfront Pavilion Wedding Ceremony

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Angsana Velavaru has everything you need. Even if you plan to get married there, it’s sure to be the wedding of your dreams. They have a chic oceanfront pavilion, but what really takes the cake is that they can even arrange an underwater wedding ceremony!

Angsana Velavaru - Children’s Club

Ok, been there, done that – the plush marriage ceremony? Now with the kids in tow and you’re looking to catch a break right? Cool.

Angsana Velavaru - Children’s Club

The Children’s Club will take them off your hands for a good while, and you needn’t worry because the people that handle the kids are experienced professionals.

Trip to the spa

So it’s the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with the wife (or husband) by making a trip to the spa. 

Water sports for everyone at Angsana Velavaru

Then there are also the hundreds of activities at your disposal for the duration of your stay. Love sports that require more players? No problem; the hotel staff will join you. Yes, it’s that much fun!

Angsana Velavaru snorkeling

More of a private person, are you? Do some diving then. Take an underwater tour even, that will allow you access to whale sharks, stingrays and the like. The resort has a team of professional divers who will be happy to tag along and help you with anything. They even give swimming lessons if you need to brush up on those skills.

Angsana Velavaru Dining

Oh, and how did we not mention the food until now? That’s one of the many aspects of the resort that will keep you wanting to go back. From international first class cuisine to branded alcohol, you’re all set in the tummy department.

Angsana Velavaru restaurants

The resort’s three restaurants – Kaani which serves buffet breakfasts, lunches and dinners, the Azzurro Restaurant situated with the Water Villas where you can enjoy fine Italian cuisine, and Funa, serving seafood in the open air, which is perfect for romantic dinners and stands in the water on stilts – offer you a range of choices.

When we stayed at the resort, our OV Holidays client, Basil Modeling, shared his thoughts on the resort, with us. He said he stayed in one of the Water Villas with his partner, and they loved it! They looked for 100% relaxation and some great entertainment, and he says that’s just what they got.

Sun set at Angsana Velavaru

He says they took the full-board option at the resort and enjoyed every minute of it. He went snorkeling and swimming to the reef and even played football in the evenings and took fishing trips and did lots of fun activities. You can read all about it on TripAdvisor.
