Thelu Veliga Retreat is the first offering from “Drift Retreats & Cruises”, a new brand that seeks to rediscover the authentic Maldivian experience.
The island is a tiny, 1.1 hectare, untouched gem in the South Ari Atoll. Around a shallow lagoon, perfect for swimming and low-key watersports, the house reef awaits, and if you’re a diver, you’ll already know about what South Ari has to offer.
The emphasis at Thelu Veliga Retreat is on detaching from the rest of the world. Cast yourself adrift with simple pleasures, rustic luxury, personalised Maldivian hospitality, entertainment derived from nature rather than technology... in a setting of breathtaking natural beauty.
