Nice island, not too big with an excellent staff who always want to do the best for the guest ! Rooms are brand new, spacious and beautiful. Food is good also with choice and stay simple. Spa is nice and always available ! Beautiful lagoon on the west side, good snorkeling on east side. A very good compromise in Maldives.

With a number of positive reviews, I wanted to share some things that I didn't read in other peoples reviews. To give you the quick review; we were at villa reef for a week in mid-January 2016; It was ideal and perfect. The resort feels empty most of the time with most people having pools or direct access to the... More

Our stay at Sun Aqua Vilu Reef in January 2016 was just great. Ocean and Island look amazing. It is clean, cultured and fostered with white beaches, colorful plants and a turquoise and blue ocean. Also, the Sun Aqua colour concept in mainly orange and pink look great. We stayed at one of the Reef Villas, which provide for privacy... More

My wife and I were here on our honeymoon recently and thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. We stayed in a water villa and can't recommend it enough. It is amazing to just go down the ladder from your deck into the lagoon for some fantastic snorkeling. The staff are superb. Shahab and Yaz were very friendly and would often come... More

We stayed in Sun Aqua Vilu Reef for five nights from 31st December, 2015 to 5th January, 2016 for our honeymoon. This was our first time travelling to Maldives. Transfer in floatplane was exciting and one off experience from airport to resort. The island and resort, itself was breath-taking with beautiful plants, white sandy beaches and blue water. We stayed... More

Dear Sam J, Greetings from Sun Aqua Vilu Reef. It is with regret that we take note of your dissatisfaction over the Sun Aqua Vilu Reef experience this January. It is surprising for us to receive such a feedback as we have been receiving very positive reviews on our All Inclusive plan since we had re-launched with revised menus from... More

Everytime you see pictures of incredibly white beaches, crystal clear water and palmas, you may think it's a paradise that never exists. In fact, most of the marketing pictures are made on closed beaches to bring the "paradise" feeling. And then you come to Sun Aqua Vilu reef and you just stand there with your mouth widely open. No marketing... More

As this would be my tenth visit to the Maldives, I wanted to treat myself to the best holiday ever. So happy I choose vilu reef to stay for five weeks. The first two weeks I was in a superior beach bungalow with my husband. We were so positive surprised about everything. Beautiful bungalows and island, the staff and food,... More
