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.

With 4 outlets featuring a lavish spread of International, Mediterranean with Mexican twist, Asian or Maldivian cuisine, even the most discerning palette will be pleased. Angsana Velavaru is a perfect island playground destination – offering a variety of 5 All Inclusive Packages, designed to cater for different characters of holiday makers. From gourmet foodies to family travellers, spa lovers, novice and experienced divers, Angsana's All Inclusive Concept introduces a new style of intrepid travel in the Maldives for your holiday to experience the very best of #AngsanaMoments.

Guests looking for an adrenaline rush can choose from motorized and non-motorized sports or the complimentary daily guided snorkeling trips. Other adventures include 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.

Seize the moment and plunge into the uplifting world of Angsana Velavaru Maldives, the perfect destination playground for a sensational year-round tropical escape!
