Exclusive Maldives hideaway Velaa Private Island is celebrating its 5th anniversary in timely style on December 20 – getting the festive season off to a flying start the eve of the Christmas & New Year holidays.

A number of complimentary activities and offerings from Velaa for guests on the island include sports tournaments for tennis, table tennis, squash, badminton, golf and volleyball kick-off the celebrations during the day, organized by the resort’s dedicated Recreations team.

Amazing prizes include a tasting dinner at fine-dining restaurant Aragu, watersports activities and Spa pampering.

Celebrations continue into the evening with a special cocktail party and stunning buffet at Aragu prepared for all guests by Chef Gaushan and his team.

An international line-up of live entertainment with dancing late into the night includes famous Czech violoncellist Tereza Kovalova, chic San Francisco jazz band Nova Jazz and Sicilian ‘electro-swing’ ensemble Swingrowers.

A ‘special surprise’ launch is also being announced at the anniversary party – with the event highlighted by a spectacular water projection-laser show.

“Our 5th anniversary is ideally timed for guests to start the festive season in exuberant style,” said Velaa Private Island General Manager, Michal Smejc.

“It’s the start of a joyous extended holiday, leading into a 9-day Christmas and New Year break including two weekends for many.”

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 boutiqe 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 exlusive 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.
