Sun Siyam Vilu Reef

5* out of 5 stars

On the remote island of Meedhuffushi in the Maldives' South Nilandhe Atoll is where five-star Sun Siyam Vilu Reef lies, surrounded by lush tropical greenery. The All Inclusive resort makes up the entire island, which is a 35-minute seaplane flight from Malé International Airport.

Sun Siyam Vilu Reef has just 103 villas and suites, making it feel even more intimate and exclusive. As such, the resort is a dream for couples wanting a paradise escape.

The over-water villas and suites stand elegantly on stilts, with several boasting their own private pool or outdoor Jacuzzi with Indian Ocean views. And the beach with its powdery white sands is where the remaining villas with their beautiful open-air showers can be found.

There are two bars and four restaurants at Sun Siyam Vilu Reef. The main restaurant offers buffet dining and a mix of local and international dishes. There's also an al à carte restaurant serving fresh fish and seafood, an Italian/Indian restaurant, and one that pairs fine wines with light dishes.

Other facilities include a swimming pool, entertainment lounge, spa, fitness centre, kids' club with pool, watersports centre, and dive centre.

Things to do at Sun Siyam Vilu Reef

There's something for everyone at Sun Siyam Vilu Reef – and something for every mood. Lying on the beach under swaying palm trees and listening to the ocean lapping the shore is a simple pleasure. The beach is also where romantic dinners and movie nights under the stars are held.

Indulge in total rejuvenation with some quality time in the spa. Unwind with an aromatherapy massage or pampering beauty treatments before checking out the sauna, steam bath and pools in the hydrotherapy area.

Guests are welcome to use the complimentary snorkelling equipment to explore the house reef 30 metres from the shore. And a variety of watersports can also be enjoyed, and the onsite diving school has courses for all levels of ability.

Boat trips to other islands and sunset dolphin cruises are just a couple of the other amazing outdoor experiences available at Sun Siyam Vilu Reef.
