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.

Excellent holiday and service

We had an amazing stay, the hotel was really clean. The food is delicious and really diverse, in 2 weeks we never ate the same thing twice !

The location is perfect and service excellent, especially in the southern star restaurant.

With special thanks to the kitchen chef, Amith, Tom and Vijay.

Best spa in Maldives! Guaranteed 👌

We had the pleasure of meeting Nawi at reception who welcomed us with a warm smile and recommended us the most suitable treatments for our needs.

We opted for a 75 minute massage and I have to say that was the BEST massage I had so far. My massage therapist was Kadek...

Her hands are magical, she managed to put me in a deep state of relaxation after a long and stressful day of travel! Highly recommend to anyone who’s visiting! She knows all the right spots to press and is so amazing! To end the evening, we had chamomile tea ❤️

Fabulous island, amazing snorkelling, family friendly

Wonderful ten days with two kids in Sun Island. What a friendly beautiful dreamy paradise. Room was amazing with a pool, beach was like paradise and special thanks to Alam who looked after us in the restaurant with such a smile and friendly manner...

He looked after my two children especially well and came up with suggestions for fun things for them to do. Thank you so much to everyone, I’ve never been to any hotel as friendly as this. Every staff member takes the time to say hello and make you feel at home. Highly recommend it.

Best destination for couples!

My wife & me are currently spending our honeymoon at the island. It was the best decision in our life to travel and make our wedding here. We have the kindest and most attentive staff we’ve ever met...

There is a lot of possibilities like cycling, scuba diving, romantic dinner or privat cinema at the beach. If you decide to have your wedding here, Nizam the minister will make sure to have the most beautiful wedding ever. He knows every part of the island and with Sahlee they know how to organize everything perfectly. Flower girls are very cute and beautiful: Alyne & Sushma. Every other person is very kind to you, if you are at the island just look for: Santhana, Alin, Elias or Majeed. After our wedding we had a private dinner at the beach. We’ve had the best waiter: Sahoo who can talk with you in a lot languages: and more! You should try the lobster that Trevor chef can make to you. Perfect dinner! We’ve closed our wedding night at the beach bar where Adi the waiter gave us amazing coctails. Thank you guys for the amazing day. We will never forget! Réka & Ákos

Amazing service and great food!

We loved our stay at Sun Island. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. Even though it was All-inclusive, there were different dishes every day which we always looked forward to...

A shout out to Pramod in the Water Villa restaurant and to Prabhu in the Main bar - you both made our stay better with your service-minded care. The rooms were clean and there are plenty of activities on the island. Our only complaint is the lack of lighting throughout the resort after sunset. Walking back to the water villa at night (especially during a storm) was one of the scariest experiences, since it was almost pitch black.

Otherwise, I highly recommend staying at Sun Island!
