Dubai, 17 July 2019: Just a short flight from the GCC, Velaa Private Island invites GCC families to indulge in a memorable holiday to mark the end of summer. Escape the ordinary and prepare to be immersed in a world of imagination with a two-day conceptual, space-themed event on the luxurious private island. In the spirit of the theme, 'Moments in Space', Lha Velaa Kids Club will be transformed into the galaxies of deep space with activities to keep the younger guests truly entertained. Guests can avail the special Eid Al Adha offers, valid from 1 June to 1 September 2019.
Nestled within the constellation of islands that form the Noonu Atoll in the Maldives, Velaa Private Island is the ultimate private playground for both adults and children alike; an endless range of activities can be arranged on land or in the water to keep the family entertained.
From August 15th to 16th, the young explorers will have the opportunity to meet a range of high profile guests including Dutch physician and ESA astronaut André Kuipers, who will exclusively share the book he wrote for his wife to read to their children while he is away on space missions. Also featuring in the jam-packed itinerary is one of the world's most famous psychics and bestselling author, Jayne Wallace. Jayne's high-profile client list includes a list of Hollywood celebrities including Kate Hudson, Simon Cowell, and the Kardashian family.
On 15th August, the explorers will enjoy a space-themed dinner prepared exclusively by executive Chef - Gaushan De Silva, at the island's signature restaurant, Aragua. Crafted especially for this event, the space-themed menu will showcase De Silva's classical culinary techniques coupled with some out-of-this-world concepts and thoughtfully selected ingredients.
The event concludes on August 16th with a live performance by Vakia Stavrou of her popular song 'Sozinha'. Originally from the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, her music combines elements of Fado, Greek songs, the nouvelle vague and jazz.

About Velaa Private Island
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 Island" 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.
