InOcean Villas – Floating luxury in the Maldives

Wednesday, 29 April 2009 09:28

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.

Tropical Locations ( is offering 7 nights from £2245 per person in an InOcean villa including breakfast and return flights from Emirates from Gatwick or Heathrow via Dubai and seaplane transfers. The offer is valid stays between 01-15 July and 11 August – 15 October.

The villas
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.

Emphasis is placed on the generous use of outdoor space, without compromising the sense of privacy, and the Premier and Sanctuary InOcean Villas also feature an extended deck into the ocean, complete with a cosy pavilion for relaxation or yoga practice. The villas are ideal for both couples and families with children over 12 years of age.

Guests will be able to indulge in luxurious, Asian-inspired massages deftly delivered by the resort’s skilled Angsana Spa therapists in the comfort of their own villa. In the evening, guests can choose to savour a hearty Maldivian curry in their villa, or walk to Azzurro, the gourmet Italian restaurant and bar offering an extensive international wine selection showcased in floor-to-ceiling wine racks.

What’s more, the extensive facilities of Angsana Velavaru resort are accessible within a five-minute boat ride. These facilities include:

• Eclectic dining options at Funa and Kaani restaurants, and exotic cocktails at Kuredhi Bar
• Castaway picnic experience on the deserted Maaga island. Maaga island is located 20 minutes away from the resort and is an idyllic location for a picnic with its pristine sand beach and untamed lush vegetation
• Cookery lessons on traditional Maldivian curries and ‘shorts’ (bite-sized snacks)
• Angsana Spa treatments in an outdoor spa pavilion or air-conditioned treatment room
• Kids Club – open from 10am to 8pm
• A dedicated Marine Lab which organises hands-on eco activities such as coral planting, reef cleaning, and marine biology classes
• Water sports including diving, guided snorkeling safaris and wakeboarding
