Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Thursday, 12 March 2009

This coming July, the Angsana Velavaru, located in the pristine South Nilandhe Atoll of the Maldives, is to open a standalone collection of water villas.

This exclusive cluster of 34 InOcean Villas, together with a dedicated Italian restaurant and bar, is located one kilometre away from the island of Velavaru. The “floating resort” is perched in the middle of the Indian Ocean, creating a unique castaway experience where guests never need to venture far from their retreat to enjoy the Maldives. Introductory rates start from US$ 750++ per night per villa, inclusive of daily breakfast for two.

ThAngsanae Velavaru is accessible via either a scenic 40-minute seaplane journey or a leisurely eight-hour cruise onboard a Turkish Gulet originating at Malé island. Upon disembarking, a quick speedboat ride will bring guests to the dedicated jetty serving the InOcean Villas, where they will be welcomed by resort hosts.

Ranging in size from 175 square metres to 290 square metres, each of the spacious 20 InOcean Villas, 11 Premier InOcean Villas and three Sanctuary InOcean Villas offers guests an intimate oasis that allows true solitude.

Upon entry, guests will be greeted by a panoramic view of the Indian Ocean through the sliding glass doors along the living, sleeping and bath areas. Reminiscent of stylish city lofts and accented with contemporary coral designs, each two-storey villa comes with a spacious outdoor deck, an infinity pool of at least 21 square metres, and a hammock suspended over water. The Premier InOcean Villas and two-bedroom Sanctuary InOcean Villas also feature an extended deck into the ocean, complete with a cosy pavilion for leisure lounging or yoga practice.

Modern amenities to complement the chic resort include a flat screen TV, stereo system with iPod docking station, a full-sized bath tub, and wireless Internet connection. Considerate touches include two sets of snorkelling gear placed in the villa for marine exploration whenever desired, as guests are mere steps from the clear lagoon waters and its colourful inhabitants.

Guests who wish to take meals outside of the villa may walk over to Azzurro, the gourmet Italian restaurant and bar located towards one end of the InOcean Villa cluster. Aside from delectable Italian classics, Azzurro will offer an extensive international wine selection showcased in floor-to-ceiling wine racks.

Guests staying at the InOcean Villas also enjoy complete access to the facilities and services available at Velavaru island where there are 79 beachfront villas. Whenever desired, guests have the option to retreat to the discreet privacy of the InOcean Villas or enjoy the convenience of full resort services and amenities at the main resort.

At Angsana Velavaru, the facilities and services on the island include:

• Dining options at Funa and Kaani restaurants, and exotic cocktails at Kuredhi Bar
• Chef’s culinary classes
• Angsana Spa treatments in an outdoor spa pavilion or air-conditioned treatment room
• Kids’ Club – open from 10am to 8pm
• A dedicated Marine Lab which organises hands-on eco activities like coral planting, reef cleaning, and marine biology class
• Water sports like diving, guided snorkeling safari, wakeboarding
• A selection of local crafts and spa amenities at Angsana Gallery
