Snaking out across the turquoise lagoon are the chic In Ocean Villas of Angsana Velavaru, while tucked away on the main island are the beach villas with direct access to the powdery white sand. Uniquely in the Maldives, the In Ocean Villas are located out the lagoon (with boat access), for the ultimate in exclusivity. The design of the villas takes elements of Japanese architecture and cubism, blended with tropical shades and a traditional Maldivian thatched roof. The result is bright, modern and cool. The restaurants tempt you with Asian and Mediterranean flavours; the spa therapists are ready to whisk you away into a world of bliss; surrounding you is a vast aquatic playground in shades of azure and cobalt
