Revel in castaway vibes on 'Turtle Island' in the Maldives, a tropical retreat with jaw-dropping scenery, eco-friendly credentials, and endless al fresco activities.

Welcome to Angsana Velavaru – also known as ‘Turtle Island’. Located in the Dhaalu Atoll of the Maldives, guests come for the knockout tropical scenery, and stay for the impeccable service and myriad first-class amenities. While the turquoise Indian Ocean and flawless white-sand beaches command your attention, this 5-star resort promises relaxation and exploration in equal measure. It also boasts one of the best-preserved house reefs in the Maldives, with over 30 dive spots to discover nearby.

For eco-conscious guests, the island has a Marine Lab dedicated to protecting coral reef ecosystems through research and conservation efforts. You can do your bit by helping to replant corals and learn more about the local marine life, including sea turtles and diverse reef species. Then unwind on the deck of the infinity pool while sipping on your favourite cocktail, before heading to the award-winning Angsana Spa for the ultimate pampering session. Don’t miss their signature Floral Chic treatment, which includes an indulgent massage, nourishing body wrap, floral pouch scrub, and a facial of your choice.

With no fewer than 101 activities on the island, you’re sure to work up an appetite – thankfully this is where Angsana excels. Relax and soak up the sea breeze as you tuck into Mediterranean cuisine on Azzurro Restaurant’s ocean-suspended veranda. Funa Restaurant offers world-class Pan-Asian dishes for lunch and dinner, while Kaani Restaurant serves the best of Maldivian specialities with an Asian influence. Take it easy by the pool at Kuredhi Bar with a delicious Spiced Apple Crumble Martini and a side of calamari frito. Or, opt for romantic private dining under the stars, with a focus on fresh produce and mouth-watering flavours.

Local Area

Angsana Velavaru is located in the picture-perfect Dhaalu Atoll in the Maldives. A transfer from Malé International Airport takes 40 minutes by seaplane, where you’ll soar over the archipelago of jewel-like islands, coralline reefs, and glistening turquoise Indian Ocean. The perfect way to kick off your once-in-a-lifetime holiday. The atoll is home to over 30 exciting dive sites – the resort’s PADI-certified Dive Centre offers courses and excursions to beginner and experienced divers alike. You can also kayak or jet ski around the lagoon or discover the colourful marine life by taking part in a snorkelling safari with a knowledgeable guide.

There are a number of ways you can explore the local region. Experience the magnificent Maldives on a sunset cruise with canapés and a glass of bubbles, while witnessing the sky turn into a magical watercolour painting. Spot friendly flocks of dolphins frolicking in the sea while aboard the resort’s luxury boat. Or try age-old Maldivian fishing methods on a night fishing trip with an experienced boat captain and deckhand – your catch will be prepared and served for lunch the following day.
