This island was absolutely breathtaking! We stayed in a water villa which was amazing! The chefs at the restaurante were so kind and went out of there way to make sure we enjoyed our meals. Our favourite chef was Chef Krishna he was always full of laughter and smiles. We would 100% reccomend staying on this beautiful island

After a cancelled flight resulting in a 10 hour delay I was struggling to stay excited for our trip. However, this feeling was shattered the minute we arrived at Sun Island! I had very little sleep and felt irritable but the check in was so friendly and efficient I did not have to worry about anything. We were greeted promptly and after a brief explanation of the way the resort is run, we were whisked off in a buggy to our Sunset Villa. I had previously requested a room between 440-450 and was delighted to be allocated room 450 which was right on the beach front with some palm trees providing a bit of shade when required. The Villa was clean and modern whilst also feeling very homely for the entire 2 weeks we stayed. There are two air con units (1x in main room and 1 in the bathroom) which were excellent and kept the room comfortable at all times. We absolutely loved the open air shower! The room was kept in tip top condition by our housekeeper Jebba who visited twice a day and was on the ball with fresh towels and drinks every day! Thank you again Jebba!! The food was superb and we were never bored throughout our stay. The choice was outstanding the quality was as you would expect if you had ordered it specifically which is quite an achievement for a large scale buffet! Our waiter Mamuun was outstanding and kept us a lovely table for every meantime and made sure we always had drinks and we really enjoyed his company at meal times. The resort definitely has a star with Mamuun! On occasion when we visited the main bar for some evening drinks (My wife was 6 months pregnant at the time of travelling so we opted for early nights and seeing sunrise every morning..) our waiter Prabhu was excellent and would ensure we always had a drink, his service was impeccable and he was always happy to have a chat and laugh with us. The resort are lucky to have Prabhu! The Excursions are definitely hit/miss and I booked the Big Game Adventure Snorkeling to swim with the amazing Whale Shark. Unfortunately on the trip we did not see a whale shark, manta and just one lonely turtle but the trip was still well run and the whole crew were very friendly, although my one issue was they always seemed to be in the wrong place when the Whale Sharks made an appearance and by the time we got there it was gone so they did seem to be having an off day. A few people mentioned that they experienced the same issue but with any wildlife its 50/50 so no issue from me. Not to be deterred, I proceeded to book the Whale Shark Snorkeling trip in one last attempt to swim with one and we swam with 2 different whale sharks on 3 occasions so I left extremely happy! Thank you to the team for helping me experience this amazing animal in their home. Make sure you snorkel the islands house reef which you can access from the Italian Restaurant. You can see a variety of species of fish with appearances from an octopus and some small black tip reef sharks. Finally, My wife and I would like to pass on our sincerest thank you to the Sun Island Resort back office team who communicated with us faultlessly throughout our travelling ordeal (more than Emirates but that's a whole other review..). They constantly reassured us that they would assist us in any way to make sure we make our domestic transfer from Male and the resort representatives that met us in Male lived up to that promise and made the transfer seamless and guided us through Male airport to the domestic departure lounge. Thank you again.…
