Resort is beautiful, staff were attentive, especially Mohammed in the dive centre. expect high prices for water - we brought our own. We were on half board and think that it was better than had we been full board, we were upgraded to a water bungalow as our transfer to the resort was delayed, so it was well worth it!...

There was plenty of space for our clothes. Four poster bed. We were very very lucky and our bed was decorated with...

After a fab week in Sri Lanka spent 8 days in Vilu to chill out. To begin with the seaplane experience is amazing, and nothing quite prepares you for your first sight of the Maldives glistening like jewels in the ocean. The colours are just unbelievable and take your breath away. As has been described in detail many times on...

This was our 2nd trip to Maldives (first being last year) and we really enjoyed ourselves again. Vilu Reef is a lovely hotel but maybe not as good as our hotel last year (Olhuveli – who are also owned by the same co as Vilu Reef) but we think that is just personal choice as the island was still very...

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
