I would recommend this beautiful place. Let s start in the beginning. We travelled with an almost 2 years old girl, and it was amazing with her. We arrived at Male airport, where waiting for us. The hydroplane transfer was amazing, and the waiting room, where we wait for our hydroplane was 5 stars too. The transfer took about 40-45...

We have spent 10 blissful days at Sun Aqua Vilu Reef. The snorkelling has been quite amazing. I would recommend buying a full face snorkel mask to bring with you. In your bathroom you will find a life jacket which is great to wear whilst snorkelling. There are plenty of other water sports on offer too. Although there are only...

Went there for our honeymoon. Staff very friendly and always helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. Amazing room with amazing views all around. Food was a little expensive compared to the taste and offerings for vegetarians but chef did prepare food to our taste. Overall a very memorable trip and a must go.

My wife kept the destination a surprise, I was told to pack for a week at the beach. The package deal was superb, from the care and wait in the lounge whilst we received a shoulder massage and some food and drinks as our flight was rescheduled for an earlier departure. Our first sea-plane trip was fun and looking at...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sun-kissed sanctuary, our beautiful Paradise is covered by a lush layer of coconut palms and scented by the sweet fragrance of frangipanis and tropical flowers. Ringed by pristine coral reefs and clear turquoise waters, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a haven of peace, home to bright blooms and friendly fauna, with hermit crabs, grey herons and multi-colored geckoes among our exotic inhabitants. This delicate ecology offers quiet moments with nature, the opportunity to immerse in delicious serenity. Only 145 kilometers south of capital Malé, we're just a 35-minute seaplane ride from the international airport - a short but spectacularly scenic ride. ... more   less

“Deluxe beach villas have a picturesque view!”
  • The deluxe beach villa with a private pool that leads you to the pristine beach.
  • Early morning coffee by the private pool. Blissful mornings like these are hard to come across!
  • Bright and sunny mornings like these are truly well appreciated.
