What We Love

  • Breakfast is included in the Jetsetter rate
  • Surprising, contemporary interiors that depart from typical Maldives resort style
  • A remote, untouched setting
  • The resort’s colorful coral reef – swim it, snorkel it, dive it
  • Unique InOcean Villas are a half-mile offshore — talk about privacy!
  • The spa, with a staff trained at Banyan Tree’s spa academy

What To Know

  • Not for those with a fear of small planes, as the resort is reachable only by a 40-minute seaplane flight
  • The ultraremote and quiet setting isn’t for everyone
  • Occasionally, a restaurant will not open if hotel occupancy is low, but there is always at least one option, plus room service
  • InOcean Villas were added to the property in June 2009

Dear all

My family and I have opportunities a week’s to stay at Angsana Velavaru and I wanted to write to tell you what a wonderful experience we had.

Each and every member of staff, from the Marine center (Ageel), restaurants staff (Jawaad and Mamdhooh), was extremely friendly and welcoming, eager to please at all times. A smile at all times, nothing was too much trouble and he almost anticipated what we might need before we thought about it ourselves! He is amazing.

Please pass on our thanks for making our holiday so magical. We should very much like to return in the future.

Best wishes

Unquestionably one of the very best in Maldives - highly recommended!

Team is simply brilliant - courteous, thoughtful and sincerely wishing to make our trip even better. Food options are outstanding without exception. Resort daily activities are plentiful and smart, without being overwhelming. Like the nature of the Island and IOV the water villas are fantastic. Do not worry about the distance to travel since domestic flight and seaplane options are available daily. And the spa is truly worth visiting daily - your body will thank you!:) This is sunny side of life and get ready to explore funny side of life with this lovely staff:-)

Amazing stay

We went to the resort on our honeymoon and the water villas are so beautiful! Not for the lack of activities, but since it was a only a three day visit we spent most of our time in the villa, swimming in the private infinity pool or enjoying the view from the terrace.
The main island was closed for renovation at the time of our visit but there were still hourly ferries to and from the main island and the water villas, duration around 5 mins. The food in both their restaurants are delicious, with gorgeous views of the sea.
The resort arranged a romantic honeymoon dinner for us on the main island, and the next day we enjoyed an informative stingray feeding session and walked around the beautiful island, enjoying the sunset.
On our last day we went down the steps in our villa to the sea and snorkeled a bit (with gear kindly provided by the staff). Even in the area around our villa there were a lot of fishes so the swim was quite a good end to a stay in this wonderful resort, which exceeded all our expectations and more!
