Velassaru Maldives

South Male Atoll, Maldives

From an aerial distance, these thatched-roof, overwater bungalows could almost pass for flowers in a lei floating in the Indian Ocean. Close up, they’re your secluded hideaway. Velassaru is on a private coral island, a 25-minute speedboat ride from the Maldive’s Malé airport. You won’t be roughing it, though, with 5 restaurants, 2 bars, a spa, and amenities including plush robes and slippers. While away the days lounging on your teak sundeck, or sign up for a PADI course and descend the turquoise waters to view the surrounding underwater paradise. You’ve come a long way, baby. Enjoy it.
