Maldives Islands

Life under the palms at the Sun Island Resort and Spa moves at a different pace. Here, the important things are the sea and the sand, the food, the company and the relaxation. With such a spectacular location, wonderful restaurants and great service, it is supremely easy to relax here.

Superb location, wonderful restaurants and five star amenities at The Sun Island Resort and Spa:

This is the largest of the Maldives holiday islands and it stretches for nearly two perfect kilometres. The island is dotted with lagoons and surrounded by white sandy beaches. You can spend your days island-hopping, deep-sea fishing or relaxing in that special kind of Maldives way.

The Sun Island Resort and Spa gives you everything you need to make the most of your holiday. With its very own water sports centre and its diving centre, watery pursuits are inevitably popular. There's even a chance to feed the sting rays!

The spa is like something out of a dream. Take the winding track through the trees to the glade and step into the leafy treatment room. This is an Araamu spa, complete with Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath and a wealth of invigorating and relaxing treatments.

And the restaurants are an attraction in their own right. The speciality Thai Sun Star restaurant stands on stilts at the end of an ocean jetty. It's the perfect spot for a romantic evening meal as the sun sinks slowly over the water. Or try the innovative Zero Restaurant which promises a gastronomic adventure - wonderfully nutritious healthy food in the heart of the hotel gardens.

During your stay you'll enjoy your very own air conditioned beach bungalow, complete with private sun deck, as well as satellite TV, mini bar, and drinks making facilities. Or you might like to upgrade to a water bungalow. Just ask for details?

To say it's breath-taking doesn't do it justice. The Sun Island Resort and Spa - on the southern tip of the South Ari atoll - bathes under a warm sun, surrounded by palm trees and encircled by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. The Sun Island Resort is reached by a 30 minute flight followed by a 5 minute speedboat ride.

Review by tommW7082GV

We were here for 11 nights in total, the beach was amazing, the island was incredible once in a lifetime holiday. The service was 10/10 from the staff. The food was very nice as we were all inclusive. They also had entertainment which was good they had a fire show, light show and water aerobic by a guy called snoop!! The entertainment manager, he was a great guy really friendly and made our stay more enjoyable.

Best hotel

Review by emmasB3243IX

We had the best holiday at this hotel and we had our engagement here, the staff set this up so it was a suprise for me ! Our room was right on the beach so we could step out into the clearest sea I've ever seen! I Would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are all so accommodating and there are lots of activities on like Aqua aerobics, yoga and stretching ect. Great variation of food also on offer at the buffet! The fire show is not to be missed? It was one of the highlights of our holiday ! The entertainment manager called snoop was our favourite, he is very entertaining and making sure all the guests are happy and have fun at the hotel ❤

Araamu Spa

Review by thaismC2917OL

Araamu SPA

What say about this place? It's a kind of enchanted garden I and my sister had the pleasure to go there twice. The first was on our birthday we did a Hot Stones Treatment, a wonderful experience, Ari and Novi were excellent professionals very kind, and made us feel comfortable, they are gentle and understanding. The second time was on our last day, we did a combo: Full body and face massage, body exfoliation, and rose bath. Again with Ari and Novi we didn`t get disappointed at all!! All SPA is very clean floors, places of massage, change room. We 100% recommend this experience! The price is worth it.
