Holistic luxury in the heart of the Maldives

Nestled in the serene waters of the Maldives, Velaa Private Island is set to redefine the paradigms of luxury and wellness with the launch of its new Eveylaa Wellbeing center.

Velaa Private Island Maldives enhances its ultra-luxury status with the unveiling of Eveylaa Wellbeing in its Wellbeing Village, opening May 1, 2023. This new facility combines traditional healing practices like Ayurveda and Eastern medicine with modern medical diagnostics and treatments, including blood analysis and food intolerance profiling, osteopathy, a European-style steam room, and a floating pod. Eveylaa, meaning ‘ancient’ in the local language, aims to offer a holistic wellness experience through its range of therapies. The Wellbeing Village also includes an open-air Yoga Pavilion, an air-conditioned Pilates Studio, and hosts visiting wellness practitioners for exclusive residencies.

Adding to the wellness experience, Velaa has introduced a new restaurant concept, Faiy, focusing on nutritious meals made from natural ingredients. Faiy offers a menu of raw, plant-based, and light dishes, alongside wellness mocktails, smoothies, and a selection of vegan, organic wines.
The expansion reflects a shift towards offering guests meaningful travel experiences that focus on health and wellbeing, a trend that has gained momentum post-pandemic. According to Wayne Milgate, General Manager, wellbeing is now seen as essential, with guests seeking luxury retreats that offer relaxation and rejuvenation in beautiful destinations.
Velaa Private Island aims to provide an exclusive boutique experience, designed with an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture and contemporary luxury. Its name, meaning “Turtle”, reflects the island’s design and its significance as a nesting site for sea turtles. The resort features 47 private villas, including over-water villas and a newly refurbished Romantic Pool Residence accessible only by boat, offering unparalleled privacy and exclusivity.
