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

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

Great place, second visit. For the budget, this place exceeds expectations. The location of the bungalow and it's views of the ocean were awesome and the regular friendly room service (twice a day) kept the place very comfortable. Food was good, 3 meals a day - and the restaurant / bar staff always smiled and were willing to chat. If... More
