We are so pleased we spent the first days of our honeymoon at this place , so peaceful and beautiful. I would say facilities and activities are somehow expensive and every thing is priced in American Dollars. Every thing is perfect here: food, staff, atmosphere, rooms. The only thing that is not pleasing is the Internet connection speed!

We were astounded by how beautiful the island was....it was breathtaking! We had a guided tour of the facilities before being taken to our delux villa. The room was spectacular...our bathroom was outside and the flooring was part sand, with stepping stones leading to the shower. The room was huge, with a gigantic bed. Our view was through windows that... More

Scenery, food, and activities are all very good (5 stars in my opinion). However, what makes this place great are the people who work there. My wife and I were treated with the utmost respect and hospitality for the entire 4 night stay to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversery. First, thank you to Upul for showing us to our... More

We spent last Christmas 2015 in this gorgeous venue. Our room with own pool was on the "better" side of the island in regards the unobstructed view. The room was gorgeous and clean, however there was no hair conditioner in the bathroom. After I complained about it, we got it next day. We had booked a room without buffet as... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sun-kissed sanctuary, our beautiful Paradise is covered by a lush layer of coconut palms and scented by the sweet fragrance of frangipanis and tropical flowers. Ringed by pristine coral reefs and clear turquoise waters, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a haven of peace, home to bright blooms and friendly fauna, with hermit crabs, grey herons and multi-colored geckoes among our exotic inhabitants. This delicate ecology offers quiet moments with nature, the opportunity to immerse in delicious serenity. Only 145 kilometers south of capital Malé, we're just a 35-minute seaplane ride from the international airport - a short but spectacularly scenic ride. ... more   less
