We just came back from a 10 day family holiday with 2 teenagers. It was absolutely wonderful. The rooms were a great size with AMAZING aircon which makes them the only cool place on the island. The food is great, if you are AI you can drink cold beer and decent rose all day long and there is plenty to do from kayaking to snorkelling with some lovely all inclusive extras like a sunset dolphin cruise and 15 mins of jet skiing. The rough around the edges comes from arriving to play tennis and the balls being old, the rockets having no grips and the court itself being full of cracks - just really poor quality. However new balls and rackets were provided when asked for - it’s just that the court should be 4 star. While we were there dream island the new part of the resort opened and it had a huge impact on staffing levels. Everything took longer, orders were forgotten and we had to search for a waiter to get us a drink. You forgive these things because it’s such a beautiful place and the staff are lovely, they are doing their best. However management should bring more staff in and make sure the facilities are of the right standard. Where the tennis and the gym are there is no water available and it’s over 30 degrees. These are simple fixes. None of this spoiled our holiday - it was absolutely fantastic but just wanted to let the resort know where things could be improved. Thanks for having us Olhuveli

We just returned from an amazing week at Olhuveli. From the moment we reached the airport to the moment we returned back, our time here was simply amazing. At the airport, we were greeted by hotel staff who escorted us to a comfortable speed boat supplied with life jackets, water bottles, and storage compartments for luggage. We were greeted at the island by drums and hibiscus necklaces, and then led to the Sunset Bar for check in. We were given cold towels, iced tea, and were then greeted by our amazing host Maanu, who walked us through the check in paperwork and gave us a thorough orientation of the hotel. Maanu also was our main contact with reserving different activities at the resort, and he was always ready to help whenever needed. Many thanks to him for being an amazing host. We were then escorted to a buggy ride to Dream Island, and we walked to our Grand Water Villa. These rooms are amazing, spacious, comfortable, and literally perfect – cannot recommend it enough. We would also like to give a huge thank you to Rumesh for going above and beyond to ensure we stayed comfortable and our room was perfect throughout the stay, and for his continuous kind demeanor. Some advice – request a room at the beginning of the dock if you do not wish to walk more than a few minutes to the restaurant and buggy stop from your room. It was roughly a 5-minute walk from end to end of the dock. There is an amazing view of the ocean and sea life at the end of the dock at night too, highly recommend giving it a visit. Throughout the stay, we enjoyed the gorgeous Maldivian water just a mere few steps from our bed, explored the vast hotel which was highly accessible thanks to the efficient buggy system (which always had friendly and accommodating drivers), and partook in several activities. We highly recommend the Ocean Spa, where the massage tables literally overlook the ocean and the staff are highly professional, skilled, and accommodating. We enjoyed the Lucky Dolphin Sunset Cruise with Bob, Nightey, Rifath, and Mohammed who made this a truly special and joyful experience. They even carved us a palm leaf necklace while on the boat as a sweet and special gesture. We also snorkeled at the gorgeous house reef, where the staff at the Diving Center is very professional and skilled. We opted for the All-Inclusive package and would highly recommend this for all travelers. It was so convenient knowing we did not have to worry about any logistics throughout the duration of this trip. The food, drinks, and activities included in the package were more than sufficient for our weeklong stay. The food at the Malaafaiy restaurant was decent for a buffet, with relatively diverse selections, and we did not feel the need to eat at the a la carte restaurants. The service at Malaafaiy was impeccable. From the wait staff (we typically sat in the front section closest to the beach and the section immediately behind the salad station, and the teams here were impeccable) to the chefs – everyone would go out of their way to make sure we were enjoying our meals. Special thanks also to Parwez at the fruit station for always going above and beyond. We also spent our afternoons at the Dream Bar during High Tea, and greatly enjoyed the friendly service and quality of the food and drinks here as well. Throughout the trip, our three biggest impressions were: 1.) The staff here is world-class and among the most impressive we’ve encountered anywhere in our travels. They are all extremely hardworking and efficient, and they go out of their way to make sure guests are enjoying their experience. We were always greeted with smiles and friendly hellos from each and every member of the team from gardeners, to maintenance, to guest services, and beyond. Thank you for making this trip so special. 2.) The property and premises are breath-taking and perfectly maintained. It exceeded all expectations. Rain (there were umbrellas available throughout the resort as needed for those wondering) or shine, there is something magical about the natural beauty of this hotel in paradise. 3.) Dream Island was perfect for a relaxing and remote vacation. The Main Island has most of the activities and facilities, so most of the guests are found there during their stays. However, we found ourselves spending most of our time on Dream Island, where the bar was quieter, the restaurant was more intimate, and the overall environment was calmer. Essentially, if you’re on Main Island there’s little reason to travel to Dream Island, and if you’re on Dream Island there’s a great balance of calm with the freedom of easily venturing over to Main Island if you’re looking for more activities. Thank you again to then entire team at Olhuveli for making this an unforgettable trip.

The staff, from skippers to servers, really know how to treat their guests with the utmost respect. Every question and request was treated with absolute priority. The activities were outstanding. Highly recommend the 3point snorkelling trip. An experience that you will never forget. Parasailing over the island will offer a perspective of both marine life and the island in its entirety! Nicole our island host, made our experience seamless from orientating us to arranging a doctor! The dining room staff deserve a mention, Imraan proudly serving fresh fruit at every meal! Suraj and Babul new our drinks order before we placed them! Slightly disappointing, of 9 island bicycles, 1 was in working order and as an avid windsurfer I was so excited to see the boards available however bitterly disappointed to find that only 1 sail was available as all others/masts had been broken and not replaced so unfortunately just didn’t work.

My husband and I had the time of our lives at Sun Siyam Olhuveli. Besides the great weather there was lots to do. We were first welcomed by our host Akram who gave us lots of tips for our stay and kept in contact with us when we had questions. We had great food at all the restaurants thanks to Shaun who helped us choose and book. And our favorite place was the Dhoni bar with its beautiful view and infinity pool and great bar service thanks to Dasun and Sashika. We hope to be back!

Our 4 day trip to the Maldives was just perfect. All thanks to the Sun Siyam Olhuveli team. We had booked the All Inclusive package which came with all meals (buffet+drinks), non motorised sports, snorkeling equipments, everyday refreshment refills at our water villa, boat transfers, a local island experience, the dolphin cruise and our host (Mr. Ninaaz) gave us a special beach dinner as well. He had arranged our check in, check out, restaurant choices, activity bookings, transfers, etc and helped us experience all that the island has to offer. Buggy service is available every 15mins to get to parts of the island. The island has macaws, parakeets, cockatiels, parrots and cockatoos (wild & tame). They are brought out in the evenings (dream island) by staff where you can play and take pics with them. We got to see turtles, Manta rays, baby sharks, bluefin trevally and small fish at the dive centre every night. Many varieties of crab also roam the island freely. Jet ski, banana boat, Matrix towable boat, roulette wheel tube, fly boarding, kite boarding, wind surfing, para sailing, scuba diving, paddle board, canoe, snorkelling and catamaran are offered at the watersports centre / dive centre. We were taken to the Guraidhoo island for the local island experience. The locals were very friendly and showed us mosques, schools, magistrate court, souvenir shops, fruit trees, their food, way of life, etc. The souvenirs here are cheaper than Male city/ Airport and very pretty. The locals explained how they survived the tsunami & the pandemic, their source of income, rain water harvesting as the ground water is salty, etc. The dolphin cruise was fabulous. We got to see many pods of dolphins and followed one for a while. We saw them up close and took some stunning videos of them swimming under the boat & around us. Thanks to Mr. Bob and team for making this such a memorable experience. The team at Sunset restaurant, where we had all our meals were so polite, friendly, and took great care of us. Mr. Mohamed, Mr. Khalid, Mr. Arif and Mr. Boko offered us everything the menu had and really made us feel at home. They were so friendly and stayed in touch till our return. They attend to all guests and keep refilling water & drinks for everyone. A wide variety in cuisine is available to cater to all nationalities. Every meal was a superb experience. The parties at the Lagoon Bar every night rocked our stay here. The dancers Addy, Will and Wendy will get you on your feet, grooving to their beat even if you can't dance. Combined with awesome music from DJ Shia and excellent service for drinks from the bar staff, you're sure to be making memories for life. Everyone was super friendly and were present to bade us farewell on our last day. We are really going to miss them all and beautiful Maldives. Hope this helps people who are looking to book their stay at Sun Siyam Olhuveli. It is indeed a beautiful place to relax and enjoy. Cheers, Vishnu & Varuna.

Absolutely wonderful place! Resort very tastefully done and kept in immaculate state. Exactly what you expect from a Maldives dream vacation. However which made it even more special for us was the staff, they went out of their way from the first moment to make us feel special. Level of personal attention, genuine kindness and professionalism from especially Shaun, Abdulla and Duminda is absolutely unmatched! Mr. Najah, Mr Rettey, Boku and Mr. Mohamed Ali; you have trained your staff extremely well, they exceeded any expected service level and made our vacation even more special! Please take good care of them.
