Welcome to Angsana Velavaru
A spectacular beach and ocean resort
Perched on an expansive private lagoon in the virtually untouched South Nilandhe Atoll in the Maldives, and just a 40-minute seaplane journey from Velana International Airport, Angsana Velavaru (the island known as “Turtle Island” in the local Dhivehi language) is surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters and ocean views as far as the eye can see. This luxurious tropical getaway offers 79 private villas, all with beach frontage, and a cluster of 34 InOcean Villas, the first standalone collection of water villas in the Maldives perched one kilometre from the main island.
Angsana Velavaru is the epitome of dining luxury. With 6 outlets featuring a lavish spread of International, Mediterranean with Mexican twist, Asian or Maldivian cuisine, even the most discerning palette will be pleased.
Guests looking for an adrenaline rush can choose from motorized and non-motorized sports or the complimentary daily guided snorkeling trips. Other adventures include the use of stand-up paddle boarding, catamaran adventures, wake boarding, knee boarding, mono skiing and marine exploration in a glass bottom canoe.
With its proximity to more than 30 vibrant dive sites, Angsana Velavaru is the ideal location for novice to experienced divers. Certified instructors at the PADI Gold Palm 5-Star Dive Centre offer different courses and excursions to explore the pristine waters of South Nilandhe Atoll. Divers can get up close and personal with black tip reef sharks, eagle rays, turtles and whale sharks, among other exotic species. For those interested in giving back, the programmes organized by Angsana Velavaru’s Marine Conservation Lab are a prime place to begin. Guests can participate in coral planting to replenish damaged reefs and snorkeling trips to learn about the abundant marine ecosystem and coral gardens found in and around the lagoon.
Children and parents alike will love the dynamic programmes offered at the Rangers’ Club whilst a dedicated kids pool provides ample space for maximum splashing about! Looking to relax and recharge? Head to the award-winning Angsana Spa and enjoy a soothing treatment in one of its 8 outdoor spa pavilions.
