Sun Island Resort & Spa
Maldives, Indian Ocean
The largest resort in the Maldives, Sun Island Resort and Spa really does have something for everyone. If your ultimate dream is to experience the stunning surroundings and get close to the colours of the natural world beneath the ocean, you can scuba dive, snorkel, or sail a catamaran in the pure blue water, or if you prefer to catch up on some of that much needed rest and recuperation, perhaps some gentle fishing could be for you. On the other hand, if you feel your days are better spent horizontally you can take advantage of an aromatherapy treatment and massage, or simply sunbathe in a secluded cove with absolutely no sign of anyone, anywhere. This is just some of the advantages of this picturesque island in South Ari Atoll. For the evenings, the wealth of restaurants boast an excellent choice of cuisine from around the world, including Sun Star Thai Restaurant and Bar, the resort's very own reef top restaurant, an amazing experience with or without the amazing food and service!
