While the three highlighted Sun Siyam resorts have a range of similar offerings, style, comfort, luxury and service are the key areas of overlap and after that, each is unique, offering an inimitable experience!
The first gem in the collection, 5-star Aqua Iru Veli, is a destination that is gaining a reputation for being a stylish getaway, with “a playful twist”. The very private tropical sanctuary has white-sand beaches, stunningly clear sapphire waters and its very own lagoon, Dhaalu Atoll.
Accommodation comprises 125 sun-drizzled, thatched casitas that are scattered through the trees nestled around Iru Veli’s lagoon, while others hover over the crystal waters with access to the sea from a private jetty. Every room is exceptionally private, designed in a modern Maldivian style, and each has an unobscured panoramic view of the endless ocean. Individual rooms have their own charming freshwater pool for couples and families alike, with interconnecting spaces also available for larger groups.
The endless azure ocean calls to the water enthusiasts and activities include jet-skiing, snorkelling or diving, among other activities, with the waters alive with a huge variety of marine life. Adventurous spirits can take part in a sunset dolphin excursion, a snorkelling safari or a trip to a local island for a peek into Maldivian culture.
To unwind, guests can indulge in a selection of spa treatments at the Sun Aqua Spa, delivered in overwater pavilions to the backdrop of waves rolling in the distance. Steam and sauna rooms, hydrotherapy pools and open-air rain showers luxuriously complete the relaxing experience.
