Ultra private and romantic. Yet highly versatile. With 47 villas, this turtle-shaped island (Velaa means ‘turtle’) offers the impeccable water-and-wellness activities expected of the Maldives. But with the feeling guests have the island all to themselves. Villas come with private pools and outdoor living spaces. Dining features fresh, local ingredients. And ‘polite luxury’ reveals at every turn – paving stones that don’t absorb the heat, imported from Jordan; wood panels sourced in Borneo.
