Velaa Private Island Partners with Luxury Fashion Group Kering to Launch a Limited Collection on the Island

Velaa Private Island, one of the most exclusive private island resorts in the world is taking luxury to new heights with an exciting partnership with world-class luxury group Kering through exclusive pieces from Ulysse Nardin and Pomellato. From March 2021, the private island will feature a collection of Pomellato jewellery as well as a curated collection of Ulysse Nardin watches on property. As a part of the watch collection, three limited-edition Ulysse Nardin Diver’s watches will exclusively hold the Velaa Private Island coordinates and logo, only available for purchase on the island.

Ulysse Nardin, known for its unconventional designs and 175 years of innovations within the Swiss watchmaking industry, will feature a timeless collection of watches for both men and women along with three unique pieces from the Freak, Executive and Marine collections.


Following the tradition of the Marine collection, the Marine Mega Yacht is an exclusive 44 mm solid platinum Haute Horlogerie wristwatch, with a blue grand feu enamel dial and a flying tourbillon. It carries a semi-abstract representation of the bow of a yacht, an elegant mechanics featuring a play on movement. Built in the same spirit as a luxury mega yacht and celebrating the world of sailboats, this timepiece is an exceptional work and among one of the most exclusive pieces in the entire Ulysse Nardin collection globally.

Inspired by the luxurious private island, the Pomellato collection features 26 exclusive pieces ncluding necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings. Full sets of jewellery will be available for every occasion on the island, whether on a yacht cruise watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean or for a fine dining experience in Velaa’s Aragu Signature Restaurant. Founded in Milan in 1967 by Pino Rabolini, the Pomellato jewellery expresses an avant-garde, original approach with sophisticated coloured stone combinations featuring peculiar gem cuts and visionary designs, matching the tropical colours of Velaa.

Velaa Private Island is one of the world’s most desirable destinations. With its name derived from the generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch, Velaa Private Island captures the hearts of all who visit the tropical constellation of islands that form Noonu Atoll in the Maldives. An intimate and contemporary haven, 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé or 6 minutes from Maafaru International Airport by private jet, Velaa Private Island features 47 luxurious villas. Of all the luxuries that Velaa Private Island has to offer, its privacy is perhaps its greatest asset, making it the perfect choice for those looking for complete solitude.
