The Maldives is a nation of coral islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, consisting 26 natural atolls with over 1,100 islands. The Maldives' tropical climate, white beaches, rich marine environment, "one-island-one-resort" concept and ease of accessibility from Europe, the Middle East and Asia have firmly established the island paradise as a top-tier destination for luxury tourism.

The property is located at the southern edge of the Maldives archipelago in the South Nilandhe Atoll. It occupies the island of Velavaru, one of the more intimate lagoons in the Maldives. The Angsana Velavaru resort is a 40-minute scenic seaplane ride from Malè International Airport. It comprises 79 Beachfront Villas and 34 InOcean Villas, providing guests the opportunity to enjoy two distinct experiences at one resort. To strengthen Angsana Velavaru's product offering and market positioning, a new main public pool was constructed in August 2019 and all 79 Beachfront Villas were renovated, of which 46 were completed in 2019 and the remaining 33 villas were completed in July 2020. Infinity pools were also added to 24 of these villas where guests can have a more enjoyable experience at the resort.

Offering Maldivian resort styles, Angsana Velavaru is positioned for romantic vacations and family and group getaways. Angsana Velavaru is the first resort to introduce the concept of standalone overwater villas, which are exclusively positioned at the edge of the reef about one kilometre away from the main island. Facilities within the resort include three restaurants, two bars, a private picnic island, an award-winning spa, cooking classes, lifestyle gallery, a marine conservation lab, water sports and dive center and kids' club.
