We had an amazing experience at Summer Island Resort, great job done by the entire resort team, unexpected high standard of cleanless, food quality, customer service. Really great value for money! Well done to all, especially to Mahesh (Samuga Restaurant) and AbuBaker(housekeeping). Walking barefoot around the island (including restaurant&bar) has been one of the best experience on this resort. Just two recommendations for the management: 1. To find a better solution for the bungallows room doors(the main entrance door and bathroom door)as it makes disturbing noise while closing them. 2. DJ night to have more variety of music including latino,chillout house etc. By the way, compliments for the live band, the lady singer has a wonderful voice. We definitelly wish to visit again and we highly recommend Summer Island Resort as one of the best resort in Maldives.

We stayed one week in the premium beach villa and one week in the water villa, and we had a great time! The service is excellent, the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and modern. The beach is marvellous, especially in the afternoon when the waves take away small stones and shells that have been accumulated over the night. We liked that there were many different things to do like kayak or snorkeling, but not too many such that you could still relax in peace without having a crowded beach and noise. So, it was really quiet, too. The food was good, sometimes average, sometimes incredibly delicious, but I guess this is a personal thing. The free snorkeling trips were really nice and you could see plenty of things like turtles, little sharks, manta rays and all sorts of fish. The island itself is kept clean by many workers and we felt very welcome all the time. The staff doesn't ask for a tip but it sure is appreciated, and they did a good job so we tipped them at the end. The transfer was arranged by the hotel and was excellent! We were picked up from the airport without any problems and the staff took care of our baggage so we just had to lean back and enjoy the view from the speed boat, same for the ride back to the airport. All in all, it's a great place for couples to enjoy a few relaxing days and there are still many things to do if you're bored. We stayed two weeks but could've stayed even three without getting bored, but this depends on your type. In general, we definitely recommend it!

My vacation at Summer Island was indeed a magical getaway. It didn’t start on the best note as the water was choppy and the ferry ride bumpy. As soon as we arrived on the Island we reached paradise. We were checked in speedily. I stayed in an over water villa and got the room I requested Room 520 a sunset villa. Our room was fantastic, comfortable bed, small lounge area, amazing balcony which we watched the sunset every evening. Lovely bathroom. We ate at both the overwater restaurant & Samuga. Both had excellent service and lovely food. We enjoyed the complimentary snorkelling trips which was well organised. The staff at Summer Island were amazing. I’m so glad that I chose this hotel to spend my vacation and I hope I’ll be able to visit again. Keep up the fantastic service.

I was overall impressed with the Summer Island experience. I was delayed at my departure and couldn't arrive till the next day. My fiancé was already there in Male and they were gracious enough to take her to the island and put her up in our room (Very Nice!) When I arrived the next day in the morning I didn't have to wait long for the speedboat and I was on my way with the vacation that I had planned. The staff are so well accommodating and friendly. I know that all staff are special to all guests but I would like to point out our servers that were special to us. Dining: Zameer. Bar: Udanna and Manaka. Room upkeep: Rizwan. Those guys went out of the way to make sure we were taken care of and knew what we wanted beforehand. They really get to know the guests they are working with and it shows because the hospitality is beyond reproach. We will definitely come back to this Island again. The Premium Beachfront was perfect. Great space nice seclusion but not far from the beach. The buffet was very nice (we were on a half board so only breakfast and dinner were included) The buffet like I said before was very nice. The catered lunches and all other amenities that were paid for were excellent. Well worth the money. All in all the whole trip was worth every penny spent. THANK YOU SUMMER ISLAND! Respectfully Morgan and Vums.

We stayed at Summer Island Resort for 11 days in August 2021 in a water villa, full board. At first we thought that maybe because it is in August it won't be not the best season to go, but the weather was perfect, sometimes cloudy (2-3 h /day) but the water had the same mesmerising colour. Our best experience at the island was the snorkeling, I think that we snorkeled in every possible location around the island. It's a snorkeling paradise! We saw a lot of corals and fishes, and even turtles(those on a snorkeling trip). They had on the island a diving and snorkeling centre "Diverland maldives" if you are interested in diving and we recommend you to start getting interested as soon as you arrive on the island for their offers because for the most of their activities, you need to subscribe beforehand (limitied number of participants). The food was great, as we stayed in a water villa we could eat at the Hiya restaurant (that's where we ended to eat 90% of the meals, the food was always delicious and it wasn't too crowded) and the staff there was just soo respectful and friendly that when we needed to leave I knew that we'll miss them, and we do ...We sincerely thank them ( all the staff from the island) from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay in such a friendly atmosphere! The services were excellent from every point of view. We recommend for the future tourists of the island to chose the full board if they don't drink a lot of alcohol or soft drinks, for us (we drink mostly water) was the perfect choice, we had water, coffee and tea in the room, water at every meal at the restaurant. We received two very nice surprises from them, the first one was for spending our honeymoon there and the second was for my birthday, which happened to be during our stay. I had a wholesome birthday! Thank you Summer Island Resort!!! We surely plan to return to your resort!
