The idyllic Angsana Velavaru is one of only two islands that feature accommodation in the remote Maldivian South Nilandhee Atoll, situated at approximately 40 minutes’ flight distance south of Male.
The superb hotel was constructed in strict accordance with rigorous conservation guidelines. The island’s pristine nature was thus conserved almost in its entirety. Viewed from above, Velavaru almost appears deserted.
A white sand beach runs almost the entire length of the island’s coastline.

The sand finally concedes to the radiantly blue lagoon that is perfect for swimming. The local coral reef, that becalms the lagoon’s waters, is only 500 metres away.
Maybe that is just a little too far for swimming but twice a day a complimentary Dhoni Boat shuttle service takes enthusiastic snorkellers and divers out to the vibrantly colourful reef.
The name Angsana stands for first-rate quality. Both the Angsana Ihuru and the Angsana Velavaru are renowned for their high standards. The hotel group acquired the island as recently as in 2006. Extensive renovation has advanced the island to one of the Maldives’ leading luxury resorts.
And all this happened without cutting down a single palm tree! The result is an extraordinary resort radiating a unique charm. Featuring a total of only 79 villas, very few units for an island this size, serene tranquillity is another dominant characteristic.
Two gourmet restaurants treat the discerning guests to culinary highlights. Throughout the day, the Funa Restaurant serves flame-grilled seafood and other barbecue specialities. At night, an extravagant dinner menu is available.
The Angsana Velavaru’s main restaurant is the Kaani, which prepares an overwhelming breakfast buffet. Of course, lunch and dinner are also being served. Most of the time, you enjoy the pleasure of choosing from a bulging buffet selection. Those who like to take a little drink before or after a sumptuous meal may step into the friendly Kuredi Bar.
The Angsana Velavaru’s highlight, however, is doubtlessly the sensational Spa, which easily ranks among the Maldives Islands’ best. With decades of experience, the Angsana Spas have earned a reputation for finest services and superior quality. Give yourself up to the caring hands of the experienced therapists!
