Velaa Private Island Among 7 of The Best Socially Distanced Holiday Spots

With Velaa Private Island Maldives offering island buyout option, the resort has been listed among 7 of the best socially distanced holidays by The National, Middle East’s leading English-language news service.

Described as ‘an island to yourself in the Maldives’, the news portal said “the Maldives will begin welcoming visitors back this month and, for a holiday where you are absolutely guaranteed not to have to rub shoulders with strangers, Velaa Private island is offering an island buyout.”


While taking some of your trusted friends on a socially distanced holiday – Velaa Private Island Maldives is home to 47 private villas, houses and residences, including four-bedroom options and the Romantic Pool Residence, which can only be reached via boat from the island.

After landing at Maafaru International Airport in Maldives, you’ll be picked up in a private yacht and whisked off to the island, where you can partake in golfing, jet-skiing, windsurfing, pedal-boating or scuba diving. Alternatively, spend the day in the spa, or explore the sea in a mini submarine or an underwater drone that allows you to make short films. All without seeing another soul. Price on request.

Velaa Private Island, in collaboration with VistaJet World, has also introduced private and safe journeys via jets to this luxurious resort, facilitating exclusive safe point-to-point journeys from flight to the resort for you to enjoy a memorable holiday with the maximum peace of mind — the ultimate notion of private travel.

The resort has been designed and curated with privacy and comfort as its guiding principles, while allowing the Indian Ocean to take center stage.
