“We are truly honored to have such prestigious performers join us for this event,” said Wayne Milgate, General Manager at Velaa Private Island. “We know our guests have been missing culture over this last year, so this is our way to not only support these cultural icons, but to give a spot of magic to our visitors. The island is a unique experience in itself and with these added touches, we want our guests to leave feeling they have truly unforgettable memories of their time with us.”

The event on May 2, will include some of the most famous songs of recent time, led by Pittas whose career has included starring roles in the likes of the Bavarian State Opera, the Vienna State Opera, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the Canadian Opera Company.

“We felt that this fusion of styles was something different and offered guests of all tastes the chance to find something they love,” added Wayne. “They will be singing a whole host of songs which have won audiences’ hearts over the years, both young and old, and we really can’t wait to host them at Velaa.”

Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in Maldives, Velaa Private Island takes exclusivity to the next level with facilities and service that go beyond traditional resorts. Designed by award-winning Czech architect Petr Kolar as “an elegant fusion of Maldivian culture with contemporary luxury, intimate with Maldivian nuances”. 

Velaa Private Island is the realization of a dream to create a “beyond luxury” exclusive boutique hideaway in the Maldives. Velaa means “Turtle” in the local language – named after generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch. From a broader “bird’s eye view” which greets arrivals by seaplane, the island’s exclusive over-water villas are also constructed to resemble the head of a turtle, with the island forming the body. 

The resort comprises 47 private villas, houses and exclusive residences. While 18 of the 47 are built over water, the Romantic Pool Residence can only be reached by boat, allowing even more privacy and exclusivity.
