Velaa Private Island to celebrate its 5th Anniversary in spectacular style

This December Velaa Private Island will celebrate 5 years of delivering private highly-personalised moments for its discerning guests with a series of festivities and complimentary experiences designed to delight guests with the wonders of the island, as the most exclusive private island hideaway in the Maldives marks this milestone anniversary.

To begin the Anniversary celebrations, the Velaa Recreation team will be organising golf, tennis, squash and table tennis tournaments as well as a friendly beach volleyball match for guests with the chance for them to win unique prizes, such as a tasting dinner at the signature, gastronomic restaurant Aragu, thrilling watersports activities, and relaxing spa treatments.

As night falls on the 20th December, General Manager, Michal Smejc and senior management team will host a complimentary cocktail party at Aragu. Guests will be greeted by the talented Czech violincellist, Tereza Kovalova, followed by a special surprise announcement that will be unveiled exclusively on the night. The island’s award-winning Chef Gaushan de Silva (whose previous roles include working at Noma and as the private chef to the royal family of Jordan) will then invite guests to enjoy a gourmet food journey, accompanied by the lively and sultry sounds of Los Angeles-based, Nova Jazz ensemble.

After dinner, Velaa’s exciting entertainment will continue with an astonishing Water and Laser Show, followed by the dynamic Italian 4-piece band, the Swingrowers, taking to the stage who will keep guests dancing under the stars until the early hours.

Commenting on this anniversary, Michal Smejc, General Manager of Velaa Private Island, said “This is truly a celebration of our family’s dream becoming a reality. We are so proud of what we have achieved in five years and to have welcomed guests to our island hideaway from all over the world, who return year after year.  We have a true passion for the Maldives, the Maldivian culture and people, and the spectacular marine life here, which we are committed to protecting. We will strive to keep delivering exceptional experiences and look forward to unveiling some exciting announcements in the New Year!

About Velaa Private Island:

Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the remote northern Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and services that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”.

Velaa Private Island is the realisation of the Owner’s dream to create a ‘beyond luxury’ exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle Island” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock here to nest and hatch. 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.

The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
