Room Types

Beach Pool Villa

These detached one-bedroom beach front villas are sumptuously furnished. Mahogany louvered panels and intricate lofty ceilings impart a colonial feel, while teak furniture and suspended bamboo lights bring nature indoors. Wall to wall glass doors frame the terrace and private pool. By day the villas are filled with light, yet remain secluded by clusters of palms. An indoor bathroom with Romeo and Juliet basins opens onto a large outdoor bathroom connected by a garden atrium where a gazebo covered daybed overlooks the oversized tub. Day beds, swinging chairs and an alfresco dining area face the Indian Ocean.

Bedrooms blend light and privacy using louvered wood, natural materials and lights suspended from high vaulted ceilings. Rattan swinging chairs add a sense of fun to the elegant décor.

Food, Drink and Entertainment

Athiri & Avi

Athiri is beachfront all-day dining at its finest, where guests can enjoy a feast of creative cuisine served fresh to their tables or prepared to their request. A wood-fired oven means hot freshly made pizzas, signature of Athiri, are served throughout the day. Avi is a casual pool bar by day and a vibrant cocktail bar by night, complete with mixologist and live DJ against the backdrop of spectacular ocean views.

Aragu & Cru

Velaa Private Island’s signature restaurant, Aragu serves innovative cuisine in an elegant setting over water; here guests can enjoy vintage champagne at the lounge Cru followed by fine dining. Aragu means ‘essence’ and the concept of this signature restaurant is offering guests two distinct styles of enjoying one dish – a ‘simplistic’ option focusing on the clear taste of individual elements and simple combinations, or a ‘sensational’ option whereby elements are combined to create exciting and harmonious fusions of ingredients.

Tavaru

Tavaru houses a Teppanyaki kitchen and makes up the centrepiece of the island: a visually striking tower where live cooking and Velaa’s extensive wine cellar take centre stage. The 30 page wine list is paradise for true oenophiles, covering the whole spectrum from boutique wineries to grand marques and organic and biodynamic producers. Guests can choose from rare gems such as a 1956 Domaine de la Romanée Conti “Romanée Conti”; a rare vintage Salon Champagne, or two centuries old fortified wine 1870 Blandy “Verdelho Solera” among countless other Bordeaux wines.

Spa

Velaa Private Island counts itself one of only a handful of hotels in the world to be working alongside this distinguished brand and features exclusive My Blend facial products and body treatments by Clarins for a truly personalized experience.
