Velavaru is located in the South Nilandhe Atoll and its name means “Turtle Island.” Bright and breezy, the resort strives to ensure guests have wealth of choices and the opportunity to do absolutely everything, or nothing at all. Thrill seekers will enjoy water sport activities like the sit-down hydrofoil that lets riders fly above the waves and the underwater scooter that allows divers to cover greater distances with less effort. In addition to specialty dive classes for adults there are also classes available for very small children who will be able to experience scuba in a very shallow lagoon. There are also basic and refresher courses held throughout the day on a range of favourites like sailing and windsurfing.
Fishing enthusiasts will be able to sharpen their fishing skills with the help of a dedicated crew. Equipped with a specialised boat, the knowledgeable crew will have several good spots picked out where the water is deep and filled with big game fish to test the endurance of even the most skilled fishermen.
Couples interested in getting married or renewing vows in a truly unique way will get a kick out of the resorts underwater wedding ceremony. This submerged garden venue comes complete with an underwater photographer on hand to capture the entire event. The resort will also loan specialised cameras for guests to be their own underwater photographer and catch the incredible Maldivian ocean wildlife on film.
Greeted with a host of adventures to choose from, Velavaru is a playground of possibilities and an exciting place to reconnect with loved ones in a novel and exotic destination.
