From the endless choices of outdoor activities for all age groups to the unlimited alcohol and cuisine. This hotel was anything and everything other than ordinary! The rooms were absolutely sparkling clean, spacious, and decorated with much thought and care. My personal favorite was the bathroom in the beach villa room, it felt as though I had rented a bathroom apart from the room as it was big enough for 20 people. The staff were very accommodating and assisted us in everything we needed. I build a personal connection with our water sports instructor Gony, he was warm welcoming and took us to some of the best spots in and out of the lagoon. I really appreciate all the effort and kindness Gony and thanks for taking fabulous photos. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an amazing time in the Maldives.

I really don’t know what to start from. Maybe fantastic welcoming at the resort really big surprise . Now of course the food as I saw few bad reviews about it well it’s absolutely not true the food is outstanding, great variety, many many different choices breakfast fantastic there is really everything pancakes, egg section ( with eggs Benedict, Florentine etc) plenty of pastry, fruits, yogurts, champagne and traditional Indian dishes. Lunch also fantastic always plenty of choice for everyone with freshly cooked to order pasta section, grill section , sushi, salads, traditional meals, really really everything. Dinners always different themed evening also fantastic once a week BBQ at the beach ( which is to die for) and on top of that all 2 others A la carte restaurant which are top class. I was working in the hotel industry all my life mainly as a restaurant manager and I really know what to look for if you want to find something wrong. But in that resort everything was perfect buffet looked always as no one touch it before you, always nice, tidy and presentable ( which is really hard to keep). Staff extremely nice , friendly and helpful. I regret I didn’t catch their names but for sure sommelier from Roma restaurant Dilip form Aqua F&B manager really great guy making constantly sure everything is to the highest standard. Really for me food is the most important during the holidays and bad experience can ruin the holidays but in there you don’t risk anything. Moving on to the bar and drinks again fantastic, so many cocktails to choose from and amazing staff working in both of the bars, Roma chemistry bar, Nishan also chemistry bar, and Ravi pool bar. They were all great but we memorize those one the most, very chatty but with great manners. We used spa package for couples it was fantastic, the ladies were super welcoming and very professional, just a perfect time to relax after day in the sun. Our room and the cleaning staff also great amazing, room looked constantly like on the arrival day. The person looking at it was always around making it just perfect. And then at the end the most important person which make a big difference to our holiday our Ambassador Shamaau The nicest and kindest person we meet, he was doing everything making sure our holidays are one of a kind. He really did all, dinner reservations, trips reservation, spa appointments like really really everything. I have stayed in many 5 stars resorts before but that was the first time we had our own ambassador and I didn’t expect that will make such an impact on our trip. We did also snorkeling trip which was great and our tour guide was fantastic we have seen massive turtle and all fishes you can imagine. At the end I would like to congratulate to General Manager Denis for having such a great team working for him I hope he looks after them well but they all seems very happy. I wish we will come back soon but this time for longer with our little daughter. By the way they have fantastic kids facilities too. I can’t think of anything else I really hope this will convince all people which aren’t sure of their choice yet. Also we were just a regular, normal couple ( not any type of influencers or bloggers or celebrities) but we were always treated excellent.

This trip can’t be more amazing! Maldives was a last minute spontaneous pick . But I’m not exaggerating when I say this country feels magical, even whimsical! I spent 6 nights with Sun Siyam Iru Veli and am so glad for making the resort my first choice for my first visit. The island is gorgeous! I also met and got to know some of the managers and staff, like Dini, Janaka, and Shuhad who are so kind and just radiate love and positivity, they made sure we’re well taken care of. I’d say Iru Veli created such a positive and unforgettable experience for me; from the special 10-course dinner arrangement the resort had prepared for us, also the spa with breathtaking Indian Ocean view, and fun excursions. I especially enjoy the lucky dolphin sunset cruise with Moomin and his team. We just left yesterday but have planned for a return already. Truly a paradise that deserves a second visit! Thank you, all! We’ll miss you dearly.

Good afternoon, our friends!!!! With great gratitude, I would like to address all the hotel staff in the person of Denis. At the hotel, we were able to feel your care and thanks to your hard work, our stay left us with the most wonderful impressions. Stunning views, landscapes and the ocean can not leave anyone indifferent, but the great advantage of the Sun Siyam Iru Veli hotel is its excellent staff, your care and professionalism and desire to help guests in any situation makes your hotel the best of all the hotels where we happened to visit. Dear Denis, I would like to thank you once again for our calm and well-cared-for holiday, and under your careful guidance and attention, an excellent holiday for tourists is provided. Sincerely, the family of Dmitry and Irina Tkacheva. See you again. !!!!
