Voted The Best Wedding Hotel - Pledge Your Vows at Velaa Private Island
A drop of splendour within the heart of the Indian Ocean and recently voted ‘The Best Wedding Hotel’* - Velaa Private Island is the ultimate idyllic backdrop for couples to confirm and reaffirm their vows. An exclusive island that reflects the detail and passion of each partnership, couples can surpass their wildest dreams selecting from the wedding and renewal collection including Walking on Clouds, Ocean Romance, Wave Whisperers and Happily Ever After.
Highlighting the finest details of Velaa Private Island, couples can express their oaths for one another, however preferred. On the highest point of the Maldives, Walking on Clouds grants those the opportunity to celebrate their union on top of the futuristic 75-foot Tavaru tower with a bottle of champagne presented from the largest wine cellar in the Maldives. For pairs who prefer the open water, the Ocean Romance enables couples to step aboard a luxury yacht for a 90-minute sunset cruise.
To the soothing lull of the lapping waves, Velaa’s Private Island’s Wave Whisperers takes place on the utterly gorgeous, white sandy beach against an unmissable sunset backdrop; with the simple but effective touch of some delicate confetti and a designer bouquet. Alternatively, the Happily Ever After selection offers long term love birds the chance to vocalise their vows within full floral décor with more of a statement. This includes an elegant gazebo made of exotic flowers and intricate baskets brimming with soft petals, lanterns and candles.
Catering to all and including the LGBT community, every one of these exceptional offerings encourages couples to rejuvenate at the MyBlend by Clarins spa for romantic couple’s treatments. With crystal clear ocean views the personalised therapies include a full body scrub and the all-important hair and make-up finishing touches with highly trained therapists and beauticians. All of the wedding collections include a bottle of champagne as well as a professional photographer so that every detail can be treasured back home.
Tucked away within the collection of islands that form the Noonu Atoll, Velaa Private Island is elegantly positioned to overlook enchanting vistas of a cerulean ocean.

The resort also includes a Romantic Pool Residence which can only be reached by boat, allowing even more exclusivity. Here all details have been considered: each villa comes with a personal butler, all services offered can be tailored to personal specifications, and attention to detail everywhere is impeccable: stone pavements from the desert in Jordan, Indonesian flowerpots, luxury wood panelling from Borneo, and glimmering Italian marble.
Each bespoke experience tailored to couples who want to renew their vows start from $8,830 / approx. £7,300. All prices are quoted in US Dollars and are subject to service charge and tax.

About Velaa Private Island
Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service 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 a 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 there 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 residences and four four-bedroom residences, while 18 are built over water.
