We actually stayed here a year ago. We were wowed by the whole experience but lazily didn't review it. It's only now having returned from Zanzibar which we thought would be an equally special holiday that we realise how privileged we are to have holidayed in The Maldives. We were enchanted by the wildlife on our doorstep and the privacy... More

This was our fourth holiday to Summer Island, didn't really know what to expect as the resort had been closed for 8 months for refurbishment ( in my mind unnecessary) I need not have worried, the island is still wonderfully relaxing. I will say that the food has improved to a very good standard and a wide variety of choice,... More

This was our first visit to SIV and we were absolutely blown away.This is our third trip to the Maldives and we were a little cautious as the island has just re-opened. Yes, there is some remaining building and maintenance work going on, but this is mainly at one end of the island. SIV is one of the most relaxing... More

Summer Island is a great laid back resort and makes for a great vacation. The dive team was super--helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. The staff, particularly in the dining room, was accommodating and friendly. Our room and bathroom were always clean and a spigot on the porch makes it easy to keep the room sand-free. The resort has closed for expansion... More

If you are looking for "great food,"great staff service" person then Summer Island does not fit your requirements. If you are searching for amazing views, perfect beach location and great marine life,GO for it! We stayed in 227 and I'm not sure about the other villas but our room is the best! The room has direct access to the beach.We... More

me and my hubby got a late deal for this island in feb 2011, as the Maldives was on my bucket list,(and who knows how long they will be above water) we knew it was the lower end of the market and the only one that we could afford an upgrade to a water bungalow which offered breakfast in bed...

Our experience of SIV was wonderful. We stayed from Feb 16th to March 2nd. We were a tad apprehensive after reading some of the unfavourable comments, however the holiday was brilliant from start to finish. The island is very lush and the wildlife is interesting. The beaches were clean, safe, beautiful. The ocean is warm crystal clear and teaming with... More

Just spent 4 days in a supior bungalow and fell in love with the place. Was concerned going all that way to a 3* Hotel and reading the inconsistant reviews on line. It's not the Four Seasons but so chilled and relaxed it more then made up for it. Room was perfect, beach and ocean even better, was also concerned... More
