Like an emerald in a pure turqoise lagoon surrounded by sugar white beaches. Velassaru is a real beauty and has the added bonus of being a mere 15 miinutes from the airport by speedboat. In the Maldives you have the choice between a glorious lagoon or an amazing house reef, close to shore. If it is a spectacular lagoon your after, Velassaru is an excellent choice. The accomodation is very tasteful I adore the zesty colors! I always think of Velassaru as Baros baby sister. :-) The over water sap has an outside jacuzzi the size of the Mediterranean with an endless view of the Indian Ocean. Having been 3 times and tried several differnt accomodations I am partial to the Beach Villas, maybe because there were bananas growing in my gigantic bathroom? I hope that kind and gracious WIJAY is still working in CHILL bar where you can have a margarita the size of a bathtub while enjoying the sunset. Interested? Have a closer look at the website
