Velavaru Island Resort is just 12 acres of brilliant white sand set in the crystal blue waters of the maldives seas.
The four star Velavaru Island Resort sits on the Dhaalu Atoll in total harmony with the environment. I don't think I ever spent a more relaxing week in my life.
From the moment the seaplane landed after a 45 minute flight from Male International we were treated like royalty. After welcome drinks we were led to our extreemly comfortable beach bungalow well hidden among lush tropical vegetation just a yard from the beach. And, wow, what a beach!
The was great diving was so much fun (Turtles everywhere) bu there is no 'house reef' on the island itself so the PADI team take you across to the surrounding islands and Tillas.
Velavaru really is a tropical paradise. Activites provided included Scuba diving and Snorkeling, Windsurfing, Catamaran Sailing, Water Skiing, Badminton, Beach Volleyball and Fishing.
