“Best vacation ever!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

Our family of 4, just got back from staying in a Water Villa. The island is amazing, most beautiful place we have been. Kids loved it, however they didn't use the kids club. We were to busy enjoying the water, beach, kayaking, snorkeling and a family. I would recommend this place to everyone! Simply amazing, and the staff is great!

This is our second time at Iru Fushi which was previously organised by Hilton. We came in March 2012 on our honeymoon.
We found the new Sun Siyam owners to be 10x better then the Hilton.
We were given a free upgrade to a pool side deluxe beach villa which was fantastic for privacy yet was only a walk away to the amazing white sands and blue sea.
The hospitality on our welcome and all the way to our departure was comforting which Hilton did not do. They even dropped us off to the departure gate!
My advice would be:
1. Always go full board
2. Get a deluxe pool beach villa
3. Tip the staff as it is their livelihood
4. Take a boat ride excursions to other islands in the area.
Other then that enjoy
Thank you Iru Fushi we will be back again.

We stayed at Iru Fushi for 9 nights in October. Overall this was the best vacation we have had. We travel a lot around the world and stay in hotels mostly 5* or 4* at least. There are many factors that make you think about hotel or resort in certain way. For us the main are: cleanness of room, bathroom and hotel's facilities; hospitality of staff, resort territory, how the requests, issues are addressed and food (if we have it). So, I will describe our experience.
1. Cleanness of room and bathroom - we stayed at bungalow 281 (sunrise side of island), the room and bathroom were impeccable every day. We want to thank our house keeping person, Hussein, who not only did his job, but was going beyond his normal duties to make our stay memorable.
2. Staff hospitality - it is hard to remember all names, but everybody at resort was very friendly and ready to help you every minute. that includes all workers we have seen, everybody was polite, greeting you every time they see you, smiling, ready to answer any question, giving advise and escorting to where you need. Simple things make a big difference. Every question or request we had was handle professionally and in a very timely manner (really fast).
3. Resort territory - again clean and very well maintained. the island is not big, we have walked around it all the time, did not need a ride, but some people used it a lot. it depends how active you are. we are active and like to walk. the beauty of being on the island is you do not need any footwear at all. The sand is white and very fine. you just need to remember there are small pieces of corrals, so you need to see where you step. Every item, either it is table, chair, hammock is put in the right place and make the whole picture of resort completed and comfi.
About activities - we have not used water sport, took only snorkeling safari. Snorkeling depends a lot on the weather and how water is clear. we were not very lucky as it was raining and water was not very clear. However our instructor was great and very supportive to the new to snorkeling people, tried to find anything interesting and showed it to all.
Snorkeling at the island own riffs is great! we saw everything you want to see: many different fishes (very colorful), sharks, mantas and even turtle; turtle we saw only once though. For those who are going to snorkel first time, here what you need to remember when you go to Maldives: take sun screen products (is you forget it, you can buy very good products at spa, not in the store where they have not greatest products) as it is very easy to get burned when you are in the water without proper clothes; take protective clothes, either buy a special one or just take light-colored long pants, shirt with long sleeves and special rubber swimming shoes. Corral are sharp and around the island there are a lot of spots where water is shallow, so you can get a lot of scratches which are very painful. If you are interested in a big riffs and deep water, take safari, if not, you could see a lot around the island. we snorkel every day a few times at the island and actually that was a lot of fun.
Also, very important (at least for us), even though there are more than 200 rooms on the island, you do not see a lot of people. for some mysterious reason, you really could feel a privacy of your own space (bungalow, exit to a beach, beach arbour). we needed a quiet atmosphere and we had it.
4. Food - we had half board and had breakfast and dinners at Iru restaurant with buffet. in short, food was great. i am very picky about food and could testify that the food was really great. i had not tried everything as there are a lot of dishes and you physically could not consume so much food, in addition, I am not a big admirer of Chinese food (as there are a lot of Chinese guests, about 75%), there was a lot of these dishes. However, as i said there are plenty of different type of food for everybody. A lot of vegetables, fruits, great desserts, juices, etc. Special comment needs to be made about yogurt. I love dairy products and eat only good quality of products. In my opinion, only in Europe you could get good, tasty and high quality dairy products (no offence to all people around the globe, but i could not eat yogurt at US, too much starch and sugar in it, in Asia and in LA). The yogurt at breakfast was home made and very tasty, not too plain, not too sweet, not too tick, not starchy at all, jut great. Special thank you to the chef.
There are other restaurants, but we had dinners at Grill and Flavor restaurants only. The food is of much higher quality as it is a'la carte menu, but quite expensive. Our favorite was Flavor restaurant; as mentioned above all staff were great, but we loved the chats and just the level of service at this one better than at Grill. Plus, you could always see sharks and mantas getting to the restaurant water at the evening!
Wines - there are a lot, but also quite expensive as expected at Maldives. We love Spanish Cava, so you could get the good one at reasonable price.
we recommend happy hours at the infinity pool bar; you can save a lot on drinks and have them prior to dinner (drinks are not included in half-board).

On a separate note, i need to comment on the transfer. When we were looking to the hotel, our preferance was to have a short transfer by boat, but we ended up choosing Iru Fusi and were a bit apprehensive about transfer by airplance. Again, the organization of this service was outstanding! you could be absolutely sure, everything will be done impeccably. First, we missed our connection flight at Dubai and had to call to travel hotel reception at 6am (local time). In addition, I called travel agency (ResortLifeMaldives) to inform that our pick up time should be changed from 8am to 3pm! when we arrived to Male, we were met by agency person and transfer person which guided us to the bus which took us to the Iru Fushi lounge where we waited for about 40 min. you could have a refreshing juices, water, some food if you want at lounge. the flight to resort was 40 min. when we landed, we were greeted by several staff members (multi-language speaking), the check-in process was very fast, about 15 min. check-out - same process, fast, very well organized; you do not have to worry about anything.
Not to forget, SPA. I love massages, and by my rating the best one I had was Vietnamese one (I tried all types), but the one i had at Iru spa was the best ever. Thank you soooo much, Susanete (apology if my spelling is incorrect). I had the Iru special rejuvenating treatment; highly recommend. Even if you think it is pricey, go for it, you need to experience it at least once!

One more, if you want to have memorable pictures, get the professional photographer. Andrew is fantastic, he could make great photos even of most tightened up people! this worth every penny, especially if this is special occasion or just your first time at Maldives.

I have never wrote such long feedback, that speaks itself!
Special Thank You to Abdulla Thamheed, Manager of resort! We met him at the dinner once and he remembered us and greeted every time, clarified is everything was fine, what we like and what we do not (not that there were anything). As a manager myself, I understand how difficult it is to make everything work perfectly and seamlessly! We believe by his efforts, the Iru Fushi is a true paradise island. Thank you very much, Thamheed!

One of the best holidays ever. Highly concentrated pleasure in time. The minor issue was a snake in the bathroom. Island is big and green. Kids club staff is friendly. Kids enjoyed the holidays!!! Very good water sports center. All sailing equipment is free.
