Currently on Sun Island for our honeymoon. The island is a paradise for people who love to spend some time with nature and fishes. We were non swimmers and took the snorkeling course which was guided by a very efficient guy, thanks to him. All good but the food is slightly not towards the high quality. We booked a special...

Everything was beautiful. We enjoyed everything, services were great, people were kind. Beach was great and room was clean at everytime. But if we weren't ALL-INCLUSIVES there wasn't to much oportunity to buy some food or drink.

I have stayed in many hotels in the Maldives and nearly all of them have great beach =) Ofcourse the experience in every resort is a bit different if you have stayed in a few, you will see. The resort staff are great. Thanks for the good holiday.

For me, it’s really important to base my opinion on how much was paid. That hotel from my point of view, is very expensive and definitely not worth the amount that one pays there. It is worth mentioning that the island and the beach are incredible, certainly very beautiful, however any all-inclusive Resort in Mexico is much more affordable and...

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us, We are sorry that your experience was not up to expectations. The resort rates indeed are higher than resorts in holiday destinations like Mexico, Thailand etc. mostly because of much higher supply, transportation and other expenses as it is located in the middle of ocean. Most other resorts in the Maldives greatly...

I stayed for 2 days in a water bungalow. It was out of the world experience. Did water sports with my wife. Went for snorkeling, Jet Ski, Catamaran ride. Just perfect beach resort for honeymooning. Staff and service is simply fantastic. Jet Ski, Catamaran ride and snorkeling are must.

Thank you for the great review, A common misconception is that whale sharks can be found in almost any region - there are very few places where whale sharks can be found consistently and one of them is the southernmost outside reef of Ari Atoll. Our resort is the closest to the most popular whale shark point in the Maldives....
