We have travelled to the Maldives quite a few times but this was our first visit to Summer Island. We were there at the end of December and stayed in a Superior Vista room. Firstly our transfer was not well organised and the journey by boat was dreadful. I would seriously recommend using the sea plane for anyone who suffers... More

This was our fourth visit to Maldives, third to Summer Island. It was as fantastic as ever. We stayed in a water bungalow which was all we hoped for - down the steps for a swim before showering and breakfast, then days spent snorkelling. The food was delicious with lots of choice. We came home feeling totally relaxed and looking... More

Mr Waheed the hotel manager welcomes you from the boat. Mr Waheed really cares about his island and the experience his guests have. The island has recently been renovated so the rooms, eating area and bar are of the highest standard. The food is plentiful and has lots of choice. The staff are very friendly especially Wasanthra, Samanthra, victor, Siraj,... More

Summer Island was renovated in 2014 and its capacity extended. Culturally German in majority, but some asians and other europeans as well. Rooms are almost perfect with a modern treatment; all provide terraces or balconies. Underachieved is the swimming pool: small and only 12 matresses whereas the island can host up to 300 guests theoretically. Still, they have 2 empty... More

We were there just before Christmas and stayed at the superior beach rooms. The hotel had been recently renovated and was tastefully done. Rooms were fantastic. We really enjoyed the facility itself. The beach was amazing and despite the strong winds on the days we were there we were able to enjoy the lovely waters. Could not snorkel though due... More

A visit to the Maldives has been my dream destination for as long as I can remember and so for my 60th birthday treat we booked a trip to Summer Island. Were we disappointed? Not one single bit! Did it live up to my expectations? It far exceeded them! Our holiday was like being in paradise; even the rainy days... More

This was our 5th visit in 6 years, we only missed last year because of the shut-down to upgrade. The new upgrades are an excellent improvement to an already beautiful island. The biggest improvement is the restaurant, its now much bigger, more room between the tables and the food choice is excellent. It was great to see some of the... More
