Hotel's Favorite
Well this was one long anticipated holiday. Like many others we had to change dates and come in December instead of July. What a result that turned out to be. We were a group of 7 including three teenagers who will, hopefully, remember the trip for the rest of their lives. Olhuveli starts from long before you get there. We had many questions before we arrived and all were answered promptly by email. But its when you arrive at Male airport you start to realise that you've made the right choice. Within 10 minutes of collecting our baggage it was taken from us by an Olhuveli representative and we were off on the speedboat. Straight to the island and greeted by Olga and colleagues on the jetty. Walking from the jetty to reception we spotted stingrays and reef sharks and straight away we knew that we were where we needed to be to go diving and snorkelling. We were shown straight to our rooms which were Grand Beach Villas. Perfect for our needs, clean and plenty room with access straight to the beach. Throughout our stay the room was kept clean and mini bar stocked up daily. The island is simply stunning, immaculately kept with armies of staff maintaining the beaches, gardens and roads. Theres an air of sustainability too with almost all vehicles being electric so no noise at all, or smoke. We were on the all inclusive package which suited us well and we never tired of the variety at the buffet. Its a buffet and so there are always some who think they're supposed to be fed sooner than others but it really is no issue and best just to treat it as a bit of sport, the serving staff and chefs soon spot the rude ones!. There is certainly no danger of the food running out. It pays to be a bit relaxed at the Island pizza bar as its not huge but we never waited for long and, lets face it, there are plenty worse places to sit and wait for a pizza. We ate at both A la Carte restaurants and the food here was amazing. One meal is included in the all inclusive package and after that there is 50% off which brings the cost well in line with an average restaurant in UK. Considering the setting that's great value in my book. We were served by Jinaan who was as attentive there as he was wherever he popped up on the island. Its not MacDonalds here and like any good food it takes a little longer but hey, you are on a beach under the stars, its 30 degrees, you've worn no shoes for a week and your wine glass is filled up without asking as soon as its empty so why would you want to rush it. Chill out and enjoy. The highlight of the holiday in terms of food was the Christmas Eve gala dinner. We wondered just how good a buffet could be and we soon found out after the beach cocktail party. What a spread was in front of us, the work that must have gone into that meal was incredible and the variety of food is hard to describe-curries, fish, spit roast lamb, huge barbecued prawns, sushi, sashimi, salads to die for, it just went on and on and all seated outside watching stingrays swim under us on the jetty. Everybody had their temperature checked on the way in to the meal. But what really makes the island is the staff. Its almost unfair to name them because you wont pass anybody who doesn't smile and say hello but special shout outs to Jinaan, Olga and Shaun at the bar. And a really big thank you to Ahil who always looked after us and made sure we had just a drop of wine with our meals. And to Mr Afeef who is always eager to know of any problems and put them right. The dive centre should get a review of its own really. We went with the plan of getting our two teenage boys qualified as open water divers. We did exactly this with great tuition from Maasha and Yaanu. The lads on the dive boat were great and the whole place is really well run. Theres no shortage of marine life everywhere you look and we dived with many types of sharks, manta rays at night, turtles, dolphins and thousands of different types of fish. The coral reefs we were taken to were stunning. The night dive with Najih was mesmerising and the whole experience worth every single penny We left Olhuveli on 29th December with only one thought- how soon could we get back there !

Fantastic island for many reasons, Very close to the airport no hustle bustle and easy boat ride to the island. Big Island with many facilities , most importantly in-house medical entre and doctors are there . PCR test is available from the resort but costly and this is understood. Buggy service is available in between two islands in every 30 minutes. Snorkeling is very nice bear the dive centre. You can see turtles eagle rays, sharks and many type of fishes. Nice Spa and many different activities.

Sun Syiam Olhuveli is the most picturesque resort ever in Maldives. 4+ star though, it has everything to make your holidays unbelievable! The house reef is great! We saw a turtle, an octopus, sharks and lots of other marine life. The accomodation is also very nice, if there occur any trouble, the staff can fix it within a telephone call. The food is also ok, well, everything is wonderful, like in paradise. Special thanks to Mr. Mohamed Afeef for making our holidays something unforgettable. We are looking forward to coming back to Olhuveli.

This was our second visit to Maldives. So we know how beautiful any lagoon property can be. Infact the colors of the ocean and the skies are second to none. A piece of heaven no matter where in Maldives you might be. The difference is in the hospitality and distance the resort wants to go to know the customer and make them feel like home. Sunsiyam ohluveli was recommend by our travel agent and now looking back it was the best decision we could have ever made. We came to this property with the burden of being trapped in our homes due to unprecedented times. The hospitality begins the moment they greet you at the airport. It was all so organised. The speed boat ride was refreshing and a short 40 minute ride to the property. You are welcomed by the beats of the drums and a necklace made of flowers. The views all around are mesmerizing to say the least. We could see sharks gliding about and different colors of fish in sparkling clear aquamarine waters. It's the best first impression anybody can dream of. The check in was smooth and informative. We chose the Grand water villas and they are situated on what is called the dream island. This is a brand new island constructed just about a year back. One can smell the new wood on the decks. I would recommend this island to people who want to remain secluded and yet be part of the property. The distance to the lobby from the room is 5 minutes by motor-carts or a 20 minute walk. The carts ply every 20odd minutes from every part of this property. We never had to wait longer than 5 minutes in the 6 days we spent at the resort. There are 3 swimming pools with connected bars, so it's best to be out and about. One must take their Diamond all inclusive instead of the full board. It's a no brainer as you can freely drink and eat from the many options. All cocktails, mock tails, soft beverages and hard drinks are included. My wife even enjoyed their house wines. The sunset cafe is where the Breakfast lunch and dinner buffet happens. The selection of dishes in the buffet range from Indian food to European dishes. There is a lot of options for everyone and the food does not dissapoint. The island pizza restaurant serves only lunch and has the juiciest burgers and pizzas. All of this is included in the Diamond all inclusive. There are lots of water rides that can be planned for some extra money. We took the dolphin excursion which was a two hour boat ride. We got lucky and saw quite a few dolphins swimming playfully along with us. The house reef is the best reef i have seen in the entire world. We saw sharks, turtles and even manta rays. Infact there is so much to do in the entire property that we didn't want to leave even after spending 6days. I want to specially mention the staff - Ahil and Suraj who worked tirelessly in making our trip a pleasant one. The affection shown by Mr Afeef who is the GM of the property was beyond belief. We could see him talk and interact with all the guests and make sure all is well. His gesture of coming down personally to bid goodbye to us and keeping his promise with my daughter was very heartening. We will always remember these 6 days and make sure that we are back here really soon.
