Something special

When you visit the Maldives, you expect something special and Sun Aqua Iru Veli did not disappoint. Everything about this holiday was exceptional, the location itself is paradise, the food was fantastic and the service was like no other. When a holiday is this good, it's hard to make it better and whilst every staff member gave impeccable service, I have to give a special mention to Nadeera, Naddera was a waiter / barman at the Orange pool bar...

His attention to detail, professionalism and personality made what was already an exceptional holiday, even better!

Thank you to all the staff at the resort!

The best honeymoon you could ever have at this beautiful resort !

Review by Anne-Marie BSutton, United Kingdom

A fantastic holiday on a beautiful island surrounded by warm clear crystal waters. We would highly recommend every aspect of this resort. We were welcomed by our Ambassador Wynne...

Throughout our stay nothing was too much trouble for her or the staff. We stayed in an overwater bungalow, which was spacious and had a terrace with steps to the sea (ideal for snorkelling) and a private pool. Perfect for our floating honeymoon breakfast one morning. We ate in all the restaurants, but our favourite was the Aqua Orange buffet where the food was varied and delicious ! A special mention to Thahmeen who arranged for some specially decorated tables on the beach to make sure we had some lovely romantic evenings. The beach Gala dinner was fabulous with great entertainment. A special mention to our double act Manu and Shazeen, our waiters in the Aqua Orange, who provided excellent service and entertainment at all times! Try the spa where you can enjoy a massage watching the colourful fishes through a glass floor. We spent many hours by the infinity pool at the Fresh Water bar, where we were looked after by the exceptional Nadeera. He was hugely attentive and great fun. I don't think our glasses were empty at any point during the holiday ! The best barman ever ! Thank you x We had a fantastic time, one of the best holidays we have ever had and we can't wait to visit you again. I hope and trust all your staff continue to be safe during these uncertain times x Anne-Marie & Ian Nuttall x

Stunning, excellent service

Review by alanbI1739WULenham, United Kingdom

Me and my wife went for 11 days, the staff are fantastic, helpful smiling and polite. Ausam the manager really went out of his way to make our holiday incredible with his staff; met the staff in their own quarters for a BBQ, great fun. On my wife’s birthday ausam arranged a surprise for a tree to be planted with our names and dated plaque which was brilliant hich we planted (look after LIPS guys). IGOR the wine guy really sorted us out with brilliant all inclusive wines, thank you...

shuarez was brilliant in the beach restaurant and made us feel very looked after and always has a smile on his face, also thanks to sudeep and Jitu in the bar, excellent service guys, blandine our ambassador for arranging everything, rishi and many others for waiting on us. Excellent rooms, cleanliness, service, wine, had a few very small issues when arrived which were quickly sorted by all the team and ausam to make this an island we will return to, well done guys

Wonderful relaxing

In Covid 19 Times, i think a lot of my last Holidays on your Island. We appreciated the wonderful service of Shaffan in our dolphin Suite. As I have to do this now at home, I know how much work this is 😉 and I miss it more...

I also loved your maledivian Food and the friendly smiles of your staff. I hope you are all alright. Thanks for those memories from Austria Birgit

Paradise. 14 days relaxing in the pool on our terrace, watching fish

Review by jayne wbrighton

Our favourite out of 7 islands so far. What we most appreciated was having our own gorgeous pool and large terrace where we could sit and watch the fish, or go snorkelling, between books! We preferred our dolphin suite because it was very quiet (14 suites), far from the restaurants, and we could be on the sunrise/reef side and yet faced south to get the sun until 5pm. We even saw dolphins on 2 days...

Our 2nd choice would be the ocean suite reef-side and the snorkelling was said to be slightly better there, but they are more numerous (41) and without afternoon sun. The water was clear and calm and we could easily swim over the coral at high tide for a few hours every day to the reef drop - 20m or so away.

We preferred the buffet restaurant, with plenty of choice and the chefs would take requests too. We loved the open sides and it being split into 4 sections so you were always close to the edge and beach. The set menus at the other restaurants had a range choices in their set menus too, one set on the beach and another over the water by the ocean suites.

Positives: Well-stocked mini-bar, we asked our wonderful room boy, Monir, for things like extra water, huge list of international spirits, mocktails, cocktails, fresh, bright rooms (we left our bedroom doors closed to get maximum air con benefit), gorgeous swathes of beach in crescents all around the island, friendly and respectful staff, several English TV channels, calm water on the reef side, spacious private pool appr 10ft square with steps to sit on and water warmed by the sun, large terrace and sand terrace with sunbeds, table and chairs, and double sofa, good foliage and palm trees growing, buggies to take us to dinner, good fish life, a patient snorkel safari leader who gave us more confidence snorkelling alone, the best facial I have ever had at the spa... Staff to mention: Monir, Thameen at Aqua, our perfect Ambassador Joanne, Dilip the bar Manager.

Very few negatives, just being charged for the bbq and beach dining at the buffet restaurant, also the overall price is higher than our other holidays but it is another level of holiday, especially with mini-bar included, and exceptional suite and terrace. We slightly preferred Vilamendhu for snorkelling, and the restaurants and bars were at the other end of the island. Otherwise, it is our first choice of island. Great for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We would also recommend its sister resort, Vilu Reef, less pricey but extremely good too.

Obviously, Iru Veli was very quiet due to coronavirus as several countries were banned from the Maldives when we went early to mid March.
