Paradise Does exist

Review by Bellordl

We have just had our postponed - fresh off the Red List! - 12 night stay, originally planned for a 50th Birthday celebration last year, and they didn’t disappoint ! We were greeted on the jetty by the manager and a staff welcoming party playing traditional Maldivian drums, then after the brief paperwork formalities shown by our Ambassador - Shamil to our amazing Ocean Suite Water Villa with Pool - pure luxury! Spacious and Spotlessly clean and kept so through out our stay twice a day (morning & evening) by Mithu, who also provided little treats every so often like a lovely bath dressed in flowers accompanied by a bottle of bubbly - he couldn’t do enough to please and took great pride in his work! Shamil provided us with an itinerary for us to choose from and took care of all our needs, as well as a few complimentary experiences in addition to our All Inclusive package (due to our longer than normal 12 night stay). The Restaurant staff Waheed, Ajaay & Jin to name but a few were also just as attentive and always remembered our drinks choice each day/eve and kept us topped up when running empty! The food was amazing- compliments to all the kitchen staff! After one small miscommunication one of the senior members Nazim arranged an additional Wine tasting experience for us and also an amazing romantic last night dinner on the beach surrounded with heart shaped lighting. Despite the year long Lockdown this resort was still able to provide a first class service and facilities to give us our well earned escape to Paradise in the Maldives...

Thank you Sun Siyam Iru Veli!

Paradise 🏝

Review by Road33684819869 Stepps, United Kingdom

We stayed for 7 nights at this wonderful Paradise. Our ocean water bungalow was beyond our wildest dreams. Ujjal took very good care of us...

He kept our room spotless, our mini bar fully stocked & made amazing towel art and was so friendly and polite. He couldn’t do enough for us!

The hotel facilities are amazing, full range of water sports to keep everyone entertained. The food was 5 star, always a wide variety of food to choose from, from all around the world. Our favourite restaurant was Roma, it was so good we went twice.

The hotel Spa was out of this world! We had couple massages & body wraps whilst watching the fish swimming under the bungalow. The girls were amazing and we left the spa feeling on cloud nine.

All the staff at the hotel are extremely friendly, helpful and cannot do enough for you. If there is something you want but you can’t find it, just ask abs they will provide it for you.

We had the best honeymoon and can’t recommend this hotel enough. The 14 hrs of travel was all worth experiencing this amazing paradise. We are going home extremely relaxed and with a lovely deep tan to show off back in sunny Scotland 😎

Review by JuliesTravels11 Stafford, United Kingdom

What an incredible holiday! From the moment arriving by Sea Plane and the wonderful greeting from the amazing team at Iru Veli! We stayed for 8 nights in a Beach suite with pool and relaxed as soon as we arrived, our first time in the Maldives and it is truly a special place. The team was incredible and truly made our stay easy and memorable we were sad to leave as felt like we were leaving friends

The island was the perfect size, plenty to explore but small enough to make it feel like you were in the middle of nowhere. The spa was incredible and the massages were amazing.

Thank you to the entire team and to anyone considering booking just do it, it’s perfect

We will come back again

Review by centrale2018 Belgrade, Serbia

Unbelievable experience !!! Simply we were thrilled with everything. We have visited resort at the end of September and from the beginning we were very pleased with our choice for honeymoon. Great accommodation, beautiful nature and most of all so, so kind staff. First of all we have to mention our ambassador Shuhad who was there all the time in person or at WhatsApp answering to many questions that we had, trying to make our holiday as beautiful as it was. Special thanks to general manager under whose leadership this resort functions flawlessly...

At the end we want to praise a special guy that was cleaning our room, Jahidul. He is a real magician in his work. the creations he prepared on our bed were amazing and commitment to the job was outstanding.

Absolute Paradise!!

Review by RosieW031021

Simply the most magical holiday experience we’ve ever had!! We visited for our honeymoon and it is safe to say, after several delays (due to Covid), it was totally worth the wait.

The island is a pure paradise, I’ve never experienced anything like it, it is simply stunning and evidently very well cared for and maintained by the dedicated team.

For us, the holiday was made complete thanks to the amazing staff team...

Everyone at the resort works very hard and are committed to ensuring you enjoy your stay.

The whole staff team at the Fresh Water bar, (especially Ravi, who is a really great guy, he educated us a lot and made my husband very happy with his sport knowledge, especially the English footballers) we’re attentive, kind and very funny. We enjoyed our daily Shisha and the amazing cocktails on the menu, especially the Insane Margarita!! Sometimes the bar was busy, and we had to wait a little longer, but it was clear that they were all working as fast as they could.

Uzzal (Ujjal), who looked after us and our room, did the most incredible job each day. He clearly loves his work and takes pride in what he does. He visited us twice daily and regularly left us little artistic surprises, he even ran us a bath and decorated it with fresh flowers! Although not fluent in English, he always made an effort to speak with us and he has the biggest, kindest smile.

Pasha, the activities supervisor became part of our ‘gang’ he took time to sit with us and chat each day. The aqua Zumba groups were a real laugh and a lot of fun, it was a topic of conversation between us and many other guests.

The evening entertainment was always very good and varied. We particularly enjoyed the Maldivian night, the bartender flaring show and the white party!

Nafiz, our ambassador was always there, ready willing and able to assist with all of our requests. He would acknowledge us and check in with us every time he saw us around. Nothing was too much, he was always happy to help.

The excursions which Naafiz kindly booked us on, we’re all amazing- especially the lucky dolphin cruise. This was truly magical and something we’ll never forget!

The whole of the staff team who work in Aqua Orange, Roma and Grouper Grill were very attentive and friendly. The chefs would be out amongst the buffet daily, ready to assist with any queries you may have and the waiting staff were always quick to assist with getting you seated and organising water and drinks. Whilst on this subject, the food was amazing with a huge selection and variety, the Maldivian night was by far the best night at Aqua Orange- the food was incredible!

Rajat is a very hands on and involved manager, he is clearly well respected by his staff team, ensuring the whole island feels happy and joyful.

We stayed for 9 nights and the hardest part about leaving, was saying goodbye to them all. Although our time together was short, it felt like we were leaving good friends!

Thank you to you all for making the long journey so very worth it! We hope to be able to visit again in the future and will be recommending you to all our family friends!

Take care and stay safe, all our love, Rosie and Clayton (Room 605) Xx
