Beach Hotel: Dreaming beneath the palm trees
Sun loungers and parasols await sunbathers on the white sand beach. The main restaurant and beach bar with a magnificent panoramic view are right by the sea. At the water sports pavilion, guests can rent equipment free of charge from the hotel for snorkeling, surfing, and canoeing. There are daily snorkeling expeditions to the reef and the hotel organizes day trips by speedboat, catamaran, and for dolphin watching. To relax, yoga is offered on the beach, while those who want to enjoy some sporty activity can play volleyball.

Romantic Hotel: Candle-light dinners and massages for two
The romantic location of the resort in the vast expanses of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the lagoon, lush tropical vegetation, parrots, sea turtles and a dazzlingly colorful underwater world, inspires visitors to dream and savour every moment. The tastefully decorated spa by the sea also offers wellness experiences with massages, sauna, steam bath, aromatherapy, and beauty treatments. Massages for two are also offered in the villas upon request. Couples and honeymooners can enjoy special arrangements and offers. A memorable experience is a romantic breakfast in the room, a candle-light dinner in the evening or a dinner for two on a secluded island. The InOcean Villas near the reef are ideal for couples. Sitting atop stilts above the ocean, they not only have their own pool, but also their own jetty.
4 Star Hotel: Elegant design and superior comfort
All villas are fitted with high-quality materials, vibrant colors and modern comforts. The bathrooms with outdoor showers and chill-out areas are hidden behind the living quarters. The villas have air conditioning, a ceiling fan, a flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, a mini bar, and a safe. Outside, there are day beds and inside comfortable king size beds. Narrow sandy tracks and high palm trees border the villas. A marine laboratory station was established on the island to monitor and recultivate the coral reef. Guided tours by experts and free lectures are among the services offered by the Angsana Velavaru resort, which translated means "Turtle Island". For children, there is a free kids’ club with activity leaders and for all guests, there is relaxed evening entertainment with stargazing or bonfires on the beach. The luxurious service of the hotel includes the daily turndown service, twice-daily room cleaning, and complimentary water.
Eating & Drinking: Sumptuous breakfast buffet, Maldivian and international cuisine overlooking the sea
The restaurant "Azzurro" with its bar of the same name serves a rich buffet in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. The breakfast is continental, American, French, and local, and leaves nothing to be desired. Special diets are catered for upon request. Built on stilts above the ocean, the à la carte restaurant "Funa" serves modern, light Maldivian cuisine. Subtle mood lighting creates an atmosphere of exclusive, upmarket dining. Maldivian specialities with an Asian influence are dished up in the main restaurant "Kaani". As well as the plentiful meat dishes, there is also freshly-prepared sea food, grilled specialities, and a large selection of vegetarian meals, which can be enjoyed as a tastefully spread buffet or ordered à la carte. All restaurants and bars impress not only with their diversity of flavors, but also their modern design. The spot for evening time socializing is the "Kuredhi Bar", with its freshly mixed cocktails, sophisticated hors d’oeuvres and view of the sea.
Sports & Leisure: Snorkeling, diving, boating
The Maldives are known above all for being a paradise for snorkelers and lovers of diving sports. In the substantially intact house reef of the resort is a dazzling underwater world with rays, sharks, trunkfish, parrotfish and trigger fish. The rays are fed daily and the tame sea turtles love to mingle with the guests. Diving trips and courses can be booked at the water sports center. Also popular are banana boating, waterskiing, and wake boarding. Cookery courses, crab racing and night fishing are also offered to entertain the guests.
Location: Amid the vastness of the Indian Ocean
From the Maldivian capital Malé, it is roughly 142 km to the resort on the Southern Nilandhe Atoll. Guests rave about the 40-minute seaplane flight and the spectacular views of the islands of the Maldives, stretched out below like a string of pearls. The island itself is around 500 m long and 300 m wide.
