Velaa Private Island, the world’s most exclusive private island located in the Maldives, is taking luxury to new heights with an exclusive partnership with the world-class luxury fashion house, Kering Group. The private island will feature a collection of Pomellato jewellery as well as a bespoke collection of Ulysse Nardin watches. Kering’s ethos revolves around empowering imagination and creating timeless classic pieces and is in line with that of the ultra-luxurious private island.
Inspired by the beauty of the island, the fine jewelry label, Pomellato has created an exquisite collection with designs that are elegant and classic yet playful. The brand distinguishes itself by its craftsmanship and is known for its avant-garde designs that are ethically and environmentally sourced. The Pomellato collection at Velaa Private Island will include rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
Ulysse Nardin, known for its unconventional watch designs, will feature a timeless collection of high-end watches that will compliment any season along with a limited-edition ‘Velaa -branded’ watch that will only be exclusively available on the island.
The ‘Diver’ collection is created and tested in extreme conditions by daring explorers for the best ergonomic design, water-resistance, and reliability. One limited-edition Diver watch has been designed incorporating the logo of Velaa Private Island and will be exclusively available on the island. In addition to the Velaa branded watch, the collection also includes three pieces from the high-end collection – The Marine Collection, The Freak Collection and The Executive Collection.
An exciting ‘power watch’ that will be in stock, is the recently launched Marine Mega Yacht Watch, a 44mm solid platinum watch with a grand feu blue enamel dial that carries a semi-abstract representation of the bow of a yacht. It features a tourbillon with the cage in the shape of a propeller, a spherical moonphase, and tide indicator that shows periods of high and low tide. It is a very exclusive watch created by Ulysse Nardin and is limited edition with only 30 pieces worldwide.
Another exclusive watch is the Ulysse Nardin Freak Vision, a 45mm watch that shocked the conservative watch lovers because of its unique design. The inside-out movement layout of the watch has forever changed the ultra-high-end watchmaking. It is compact and lightweight with stylish design in low-key colour palette. It is limited edition with only 99 pieces in the world.
At 44mm wide, the Ulysse Nardin Executive Tourbillon Free Wheel is a wide watch that compensates for its substantial diameter with an impressively thin profile. The Free Wheel is a thin watch by the standards of any watch. The case-back is slightly bubbled and comes with the brand’s trademark triple lug design. It is perfect for those who appreciate the fine details and bold engineering. It is limited edition with only 18 pieces worldwide.
Known as one of the world’s most exclusive hideaways in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island was designed to cater for the world’s most discerning travellers.
About Velaa Private Island
Velaa Private Island is one of the world’s most desirable destinations. With its name derived from the generations of sea turtles that flock there to nest and hatch, Velaa Private Island captures the hearts of all who visit the tropical constellation of islands that form Noonu Atoll in the Maldives. An intimate and contemporary haven, 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé, Velaa Private Island features 47 luxurious villas. Of all the luxuries that Velaa Private Island has to offer, its privacy is perhaps its greatest asset, making it the perfect choice for those looking for complete solitude.
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 realisation 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.
