ANYTHING YOU DREAM ABOUT

Velaa Private Island

 

Velaa Private Island is the realisation of a dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. The elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury captures the very essence of this unique archipelago, bathed by azure skies in the aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean. Its name means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock here to nest and hatch. Resort design borrows from this theme, with turtle motifs, and the colours and patterns of turtle shell pervading the property. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body. Velaa Private Island also ensures plenty of room for its marine visitors, with a hatchery and conservation plan in place. Designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar, the overall design concept is contemporary yet intimate, with Maldivian nuances. Velaa Private Island covers just under 20 hectares, around half a kilometre in either direction, providing both exclusivity and privacy.   MY WAY “I did it my way”. This is a personal story of Jiri Smejc and his wife Radka, who fell in love with Maldives and decided to build a resort of their own. The result is Velaa Private Island which fulfills their dreams about a perfect place on the Earth…
