            Its a commercial torristy resort ”

            The festivities r good, well cleaned rooms and walk ways and prity much everything was well maintained, there are 4-5 restaurants so u can choose to just go with bb plan and juggle btw other restaurants for lunch and dinner, however doesn't real hurt if u go with full board r all inclusive. They have good activities such as stingray feeding and shark feeding which is good to see. The house reef is not really that great we actually didn find much variety but they had big fishes as the current around the island is high. Its a huge island so don't expect any privacy unless in ur room. The water bungalows r good to look at but to snorekell around is not worth it. I would suggest to pick up a basic room plan spend the reminder on the arranged trips and sports activities. As mentioned in the title its not for travelers but it's perfect for tourists who enjoy variety of activities and food and easy to reach with the domestic flights from male the main island managed by the resort owner.....

            Stunningly beautiful island, big enough to have enough space for yourself”

            + beautiful ocean and beaches + very nice water Bungalows still affordable + resort big enough to have space for yourself + vibrant sea world around the island (you see sharks, sting rays and lots of fishes) + nice snorkeling offers where we saw manta rays, walessharks and turtles + good food choices- we had half board which worked very well. The water bungalows have a very nice buffet place with less people + very friendly staff + lot of additional offers like mini golf, gym, tennis, football etc etc + seamless transfer to the airport Only thing not fully appreciated - the main area of the Ressort organizes music events almost every evening and music could be quite loud if you stay in a bungalow close by

            Beyond Words and Photos”

            I had a 4 days stay with two of my friends here at Sun Island Resort & Spa. Upon research, I find their website’s photos and write ups beautiful enough to convince me to book the accommodation. But after the actual stay I can say that the website didn’t justify how outstandingly stunning the place is. The whole island is the entire resort area starting from their long ramp like bridge leading to a spacious and well-arranged comfy lobby. With surroundings that quickly calms my soul, it makes me whisper “I wanna live here” while taking lots and lots of pictures. Every corner is a picture perfect view, the ocean, garden, pool area, the structures most especially the Water Bungalows. It is dreamy, it’s like I’m entering my laptop’s wall paper, I’m really overwhelmed that I’m left with nothing but a wide grin on my face. Nonetheless, the service is equally satisfying, the resort’s personnel are attentive, respectful and most specially warm.

            We have a Sun Villa (new renovated and spotless clean). The island is large enough to allow you to walk, is very well mentained, clean, without sea walls into the water. Full board included water both for lunch and dinner. The beach near the pool is very nice.

            Beautiful. Could be better”

            Great location, activities, friendly staff, lovely food.\ Overpriced, poor communication between staff, awkward stares from the staff often. House keeping way over eager, you'll often find them just in your room doing "stuff" 3 times a day :/ The journey and transfers is tough on your body so beware. Long flights, 3 hour wait for 30min small domestic flight to nearby island, then a speedboat. But, it IS worth it. If you like lots to do and being in paradise this is gonna be perfect for you. If you don't want to pay thousands for a room and just wanna chill, go to a smaller island. It'll be likely less than 1/10th of the price.

            We had an amazing vacation but they need to invest more money into their scuba program for the safety of the guest. One lady we were with drifted out to sea 6 miles. We ourselves were stranded in the water for 45 minutes before the boat found us. This should not have happened in this day and age with advance technology. The resort needs to invest.

            Amazing resort, beautiful island and feels like paradise :) ”

            First time in the maldives and not the last..Amazing staff!! Particularly house keeping who came to the rooms twice daily and gave new beach towels in the evening. Rooms kept spotless and the beds also decorated, made a massive effort for my husband's birthday even though I didn't notify the hotel prior. Juna the house keeping supervisor couldn't have been more helpful or polite. She went out of her way for us, and when we told her it was his birthday, the bed was beautifully decorated and she must have also told the waiting staff as the restaurant had made a birthday cake and laid out a beautiful table with complimentary bottle of wine. We also received a little gift with card for which we felt was really personal and something we have never had before and going the extra mile for guests. We also upgraded to water bungalow last night, and they gave us president suite with no extra charge - it was the most amazing experience and highly recommend! Thank you for the best holiday ever!!
