We had an amazing trip to this resort last week. This is a bit detailed review but it is definitely required bringing up few details appreciating the excellent service that the vilu reef staff and their team are providing to the customers. Starting from the airport lounge, it is a great spot to relax yourself for sometime after a tiring journey from our home country ( due to our connecting flights ). The seaplane ride of 40-45 minutes to the resort is an absolutely wonderful experience. Our island host Mohamed made sure that we have a smooth check in process with our rooms ready way before we reached the resort. He was always one message away for any queries that we had throughout our stay. Thank you Mohamed for taking care of each and every small details regarding our dining bookings, complementary benefits etc. Coming towards the food options, there are so many options that you can try here. Special mention to the executive chef Nitin Jain, who reached out to each and every family in the restaurant asking about their feedback about food and to make sure that their issues/queries get resolved. We being vegan were little choosy with food options, but he made sure that his team help us out in each and every possible way. Chef Sunil at spice is an amazing person and served us some really mouth watering indian cuisines. If you are from India and worried about the dining options, just look out for Chef Nitin, Sunil, Manish or anyone from their team and you should be good :) Please choose the AI package to enjoy all these different cuisines and drinks at different restaurants in the resort. Overall the rooms and service at resort is a truly 5 star experience. The staff being so kind, polite and professional that you can't ask for anything more. Thank you to the entire Sun Siyam team for this experience. We stayed at sun aqua pool villa and reef villa and enjoyed our stay in both the room types. They have their own benefits and I would say that you should have an experience of both (beach and water villa ) if you can. Dolphin cruise, maldivian nights, crab race, DJ nights are so many experiences that are difficult to summarize in this review :) Overall a perfect 5/5 rating from me for the entire experience, If you are looking out for this resort as an option for your upcoming holiday than you can consider this Sun Siyam Vilu reef property without a second thought :) We would be back again next year and won't hesitate to pick this Vilu reef property as our option :)

We’ve just spent 3 weeks on Vilu Reef and it has exceeded our expectations in every way. The food in all three restaurants is equal to any high-end, international restaurant anywhere in the world and this is only matched by the high quality of service offered throughout the island. All in all, a wonderful holiday and one that we will certainly repeat on Vilu Reef. highly Recommended.

So let’s get the bit out of the way that I don’t want to focus on but it’s important. I don’t feel that the resort if 5*. Scruffy towels and robes, some of the fit and finish around the resort isn’t good enough to qualify for 5* standards. There’s inconsistent use of the Sun Aqua and Sun Siyam branding around the resort as well. Yuck. Now that’s out of the way let’s talk about everything wonderful. - The transfer. The flight is tiring from the U.K. and neither my wife or are we’re paying attention. No matter these guys have it all in hand and we were slickly ushered from place to place until we finally made it to the resort. Easy… the little lounge at Male airport is a great little spot to chill rather than hard plastic chairs so well done Sun Siyam. - The resort. Vilu reef you have our hearts. What a perfect little spot. It takes a couple of days to orientate but after that it feels like home. 90% of the time bare foot is all that’s needed. - The rooms (water villa sunset facing) are spacious with his and hers sinks, 2 showers and a bath, outside jacuzzi bath although this was a little grubby and stained from being outside with no cover. The sunset side is amazing, I could have watched them forever. - The food. Buffet is fine. Always something to suit all tastes and fair play to the executive chef. He absolutely checks in with everyone almost every day and makes sure you know that if you’re not happy with anything to tell him! The two restaurants, the spice and well done. We ate at the spice most days and the well done once as it was out of action for some of our stay. Both were great! Lovely food and wonderful waiting staff. - The weather. We went in November 21 and had one day of rain play some overcast days. Still got a lovely tan though! Best bits in no particular order 1) The staff. Couldn’t be kinder, more polite or professional. They’re a credit to sun siyam. Max, thanks for your smile and care during our stay. 2) the views, general beauty and experience of the island. It’s just unreal pinch yourself stuff. Drink it in day after day. 3) Shark/Ray feeding at 5pm. I loved this.. it’s a lovely thing to see. 4) My wife used the spa and said it was the best treatment she’d ever had and she’s a spa regular. Worst bits. 1) a couple of booking mistakes meant that we turned up for dinner at a booked restaurant and couldn’t be accommodated. Human error but a shame. 2) if you have an early start and the music is loud at night that’s tough. You can’t expect a resort to not put entertainment on for a couple of peoples leaving time. Just sucked a bit when you’re up until 1am and leaving at 4.45am. I’ve tried to give a balanced view. Sort out the few oddities though like inconsistent branding, some of the watersports stuff needs updating (paddleboard missing a fin and worn out kit) and just pay a little closer attention to replacement of towels etc and it would have got a 5/5 rating for me. We’ll be back and wouldn’t hesitate to stay at vilu reef again.

Liked · Place is amazing. It's perfectly isolated, yet has all 5-star services available. If you love the beach, this is the place to be. We went for our honeymoon and stayed there for 6 nights, we definitely wanted more. Snorkeling, food, staff, picture-perfect view, and 5-star facilities. Highlights were the Indian food and above and beyond food options provided by chef Nitin and Sunil were the highlights of our dinner dates. Thank you, DIDI for organizing all our stay activities perfectly. I would highly recommend this place with an all-inclusive package for anyone who is looking to have a good time. Disliked · Nothing major, but I would like to see more theme restaurants to try some different cuisines. Rest everything was amazing

Just spent 11 nights at this wonderful island. From the moment you arrive in Male you are looked after by the hotel representatives. Pros Beautiful gorgeous island Comfortable spacious beach villa. Amazing views out to sea. Fantastic staff who are happy and attentive. Fabulous snorkelling and diving. Lovely food in Aqua, Spice and Well Done Great cocktails Chef Nittin. Amazing attention to all guests every day. Catering to their individual requirements. Cons Aqua felt very functional. Pit stop to eat. Not much occasion in there. Lots of children. Possibly attracted by kids club and hotel 'kids eat free' offers. Will look for and avoid in future. Screaming toddlers in adjoining villa and kids chasing around in dining room not our thing. Feeding mantas and sharks as organised entertainment. Not for us. Don't believe this should take place as not natural so gave a wide berth. Seemed to be hierarchy or 'palms greased' for some to get more access to Spice and Well Done. We could only get in to each once during our stay but saw others always there?
