Velassaru Maldives: Paradise on Earth (A Photoblog)




Among all the equally beautiful islands in the Republic of Maldives, I chose Velassaru, a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, for sentimental reasons. It was one of the first few resorts I was checking when I started blogging. I couldn't think of a more perfect first resort.

These are some of the gorgeous photos from that trip -- All UNEDITED.


Landing in Maldives was one of the most exhilarating moments of my life. The atolls scattered all over the Indian Ocean are like jewels from plane.


The Maldivian waters are even more mesmerising up close.


I cannot believe the Male airport is right beside this.

It was a scenic 20-minute boat ride to our temporary residence in Maldives.


A warm greeting from the staff of Velassaru welcomed us.


No words to describe this beauty.


Surreal.






Over-water Villas and Spa.


This was my favorite spot on the island.










Velassaru Spa. Nothing can be more relaxing than this.




I loved my quiet mornings by the pool.








Over-water villas. If you were to decide on which accommodation to pick, it will really depend on what you are looking for. An over-water villa is quite far from the beach but it is more private. It is  specifically made for honeymooners. 




Beach villa. Perfect for family and friends.


Reading one of my favorite magazines in this surreal island paradise.


Dream wedding in your dream destination?


They made it happen.


The only bad thing about this place is when you are about to leave it.




Around 5PM, we would go to the Chill Bar to wait for the glorious Maldivian sunset.




People would always ask me if Maldives is better than our beaches in the Philippines? I would say that Maldives has a different kind of beauty that our islands don't have and vice versa. Let me put it this way, if I had all the time and resources in the world, I would be going to Maldives every month. You can never get enough of it. Maldives will always be one of those destinations that you will never forget. It should be on everyone's bucket list. It would be my dream to stay in all the luxurious (and ultra-luxurious) resorts in this beautiful country.

At the end of the day, you can always make your dream destinations come true. I just did. Think. Do. Book that flight.

I would like to thank the wonderful staff of Velassaru for our wonderful stay. Until next time.
