An island getaway calls for rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. Velaa Spa’s menu features holistic treatments that cover the body, nutrition, fitness and mind to ensure complete rejuvenation. The spa curates personalised beauty and wellness programmes at Velaa Private Island. The luxury island prides itself in pioneering some of the most innovative beauty and wellness treatments in the world such as the Cloud 9 relaxation facility that relaxes the mind. Created by Viennese Artist and Perception Researcher Sha and the only one in the Maldives, Cloud 9 by Sha is a composed relaxation swinging pod that uses a combination of colour, light, projection and motion to create a regenerative effect on the nervous system and support the deep relaxation effect. The spa also offers some of the most ancient healing modalities including yoga, meditation and a range of traditional Ayurvedic therapies including Abhyanga & Shirodhara and Podikizh.
It’s not just R&R at the island (although we wouldn’t be the ones to complain). Velaa Private Island has a host of activities to experience. From jet-skiing, windsurfing and pedal-boating to hydro flight toys and scuba-diving in the resort’s own dive centre. Want to explore the marine environment? Set out in a mini submarine or experience marine life through an underwater drone that allows you to make short films of the flora and fauna, which are among the most diverse in the Maldives. Velaa Private Island is one of the few islands with golf courses in the Maldives. The Velaa Golf Academy by Olazábal has been created in collaboration with the golfing legend and features a stunning golf course and academy. Velaa Private Island also boasts an extraordinary culinary experience through three restaurants, two bars and a cellar.
Getting to the ultra-luxurious remote Velaa Private Island in Maldives on a private jet is now easy with the opening of Maafaru International Airport. This is the kind of self-isolation that we prefer!
