Velaa is an upscale resort in the Noonu Atoll, Maldives. The beach is superb everywhere and always secluded. It is really hard to find any downsides, but still this is not the best island in the Maldives. There is no home reef, but only breakwaters instead. So the snorkeling is rather mediocre. As for the killer feature, it is worth to mention a golf course being some kind of exclusivity in the region. Shore and seabed: sand. 
Rooms' fares are high end - tending to increase all the time, that is quite typical for Maldives. Moreover, all additional services are overpriced even by the luxury standards. However, the service is really great - probably one of the best in the World.
