Velaa is owned by just one individual who dreamed of creating a boutique vacation destination to beat all others. This Velaa Private Island owner has not only brought his dream to life, but helps others realize their dream vacations as well.


There are many private islands in Maldives, but only very few of them are truly private, owned by one person. Velaa Private Island is such a case. The owner, Jiri Smejc, has spent countless weeks in Maldives both on holidays and while taking his business trips from Europe to Asia. The islands became his true passion: many of them being beautiful, but each of them coming short on some part of the visitor experience he valued. That’s why he decided to build the Velaa Private Island. An island meeting his ideas what a luxurious private resort should be. An island keeping a real privacy for its guests but at the same time versatile enough to provide number of first-class enjoyment opportunities.

Velaa offers eight options when it comes to villas, with between one and four bedrooms. There are both over water and beach villas available. For large parties, the Private Residence has four bedrooms and can sleep up to ten guests. For honeymooners, the Romantic Pool Villa is often the villa of choice. A Maldives vacation will be amazing in any of these options. For both Velaa private island owners and guests, the options are luxurious.


Accessible only by boat, this ultra-private one-bedroom villa suspended above the lagoon with uninterrupted views of the ocean offers the utmost privacy and romance, making it perfect for honeymooners or those who are looking for ultra-luxury. All rooms open onto the terraces, where the Jacuzzi, pool, sundeck and sunken bath offer varying aspects towards the horizon. Dine inside or over the water in a dining gazebo on its own jetty at sunset, or enjoy sundowners on the sumptuous daybeds. The interiors are designed with natural materials and neutral colours with occasional ikat accents or animal prints. With a personal gym and spa treatment rooms inside the residence, there’s little reason to leave.
