Beautiful Island but Some Advice We stayed at Sun Island because our preferred resort was fully booked. This was a very beautiful Island with lots of wonderful places to snorkel and while I didn’t dive this trip (no need) I would bet it’s gorgeous. We booked an over water bungalow and I was very happy with the room and the... More

I travelled to Sun Island for a 10 night break with my wife and teenage son. The resort is spectacularly beautiful - we had two beachside rooms looking over the Indian Ocean. Fishing was one of the reasons we travelled here, would recommend the sunset trip but not the sunrise and the big game fishing that we also tried, very... More

I was very satisfied. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The staff is pretty friendly and greets you every time. The only drawback are the high prices of drinks and extra meals that are not included in the package.... Have some one dollar bills with you for the staff, they really appreciate tips.... More

We went on the island for our honeymoon - it was everything we imagined to be! We loved our water bungalov, sandy beaches, their offer of excursions, pool, diving centre (recommand if you are interested in diving!), food (maybe too asian style), very friendly stuff!

My husband and I visited sun island in the last week of may to celebrate our first wedding anniversary. I must say it was the most perfect celebration. The resort was very beautiful and very well maintained. We stayed in a water bungalow for 3 nights and it was worth the cost we paid. The spread of breakfast and dinner... More

No words can describe how beautiful is this place. White sand, crystal clear water - paradise. This island is very calm and relaxing. No people, no malls, only one local small shop, few restaurant, no nightlife..This place was made to relax. The snorckling was amazing - we saw sharks and I even feed a ray that was great experience.
