The first floating resort in the Maldives

Angsana Velavaru, located on the pristine South Nilandhe Atoll, is set to unveil new standards in resort living with the launch of its InOcean Villas in July 2009 – the first standalone collection of water villas in the Maldives not connected to an island. Perched in the middle of the Indian Ocean one kilometre away from the island of Velavaru, and boasting its own dedicated Italian restaurant, the InOcean Villas will be the first and only “floating resort” in the Maldives offering visitors a unique castaway experience.

Ranging in size from 175 to 290 square metres, each of the spacious 20 InOcean Villas, 11 Premier InOcean Villas and three Sanctuary InOcean Villas will offer guests a sense of unparalleled seclusion. Upon entry, guests will be greeted by a panoramic view of the Indian Ocean through the sliding glass doors along the living, sleeping and bath areas. Reminiscent of stylish city lofts and accented with contemporary coral designs, each two-storey villa comes with a spacious outdoor deck, an infinity pool of at least 21 square metres, and a hammock suspended over the water.

    Its good to see a resort thinking ahead. Whatever happens regarding Climate Change InOcean Villas will be still open for business.

    I have always dreamed of going to the Maldives. The incredibly long flight, coupled with the high costs, just make it tough to do right now. However, one day I will spend a day there. Ive always wanted to stay at the W Maldives, but maybe this is another option now!

    The Maldives is another ‘almost went there’ destination for me. I was travelling with three other people, who were all divers (I’m not) and the consensus ended up with them choosing Sri Lanka instead. Sri Lanka was fine by me. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    The Maldives has become one of our favorite destinations. We stayed in a beautiful water villa at Vilu Reef Resort.
    Back home we got an enlarged photo framed on the wall, a view of the clear water and the walkway along the watervillas.
    Everytime we look at our framed picture we smile and dream ourselves back to the wonderful time we spend there. Would love to go back there some day!
