Velaa Private Island lies in the Indian Ocean waters off the shore of the Maldives, north of the capital Male.


Guests can take their pick of 48 villas of various sizes and layouts situated right on the beach or overlooking the lagoon. The island offers a bonanza of social and sports activities, including several restaurants.


Design a private island which will stand apart from the common hotel resorts in the area. We are not developing a regular hotel, albeit with all the luxury and amenities one could think of – we are creating a place for select clientele, to come by invitation only, and spend ‘Private Moments’ – time they are not likely to forget and just as they imagined theme to be, regardless of whether they are culinary delights, sports or moments of relaxation – or just doing nothing at all. All that wrapped up in perfect service.


This philosophy suffuses the technical, urbanistic and architectural brief.


All guest villas have sufficient privacy and adequate private beach space; each villa has its own pool, access road – to keep shared space at minimum.


Design architecture for the island, which will – through its design and experiences it offers – be truly unique in the Maldives context.


Create adequately sized and comfortable facilities for the staff as happy staff is the key to happy guests.


Balanced and congenial architecture


The design, architecture, interiors, materials and accessories chosen serve the purpose of instilling peace, relaxation, privacy and the guest’s feeling that he is in the Maldives and not in a ‘city hotel’. Using largely traditional materials and technologies, tastefully and functionally supplemented with modern elements. Striking a balance between privacy and ‘feast for the eyes’ through humble, yet meticulously executed architecture combining tradition and modernity, surprises with familiarity.


Minimise the negative footprint of the resort operation on the environment; promote the restoration and development of the natural resources on the island and its surroundings, especially under water.


Combine the quality of communication, organisation and individual skills of our team members, with regard of the distance between the resort and the place of execution.


Excellent organisation – true professionals in the right positions.


It will help with sharing the good reputation and skills of the Czech people.
