Sun Siyam Iru Fushi

Maldives, Indian Ocean

Virgin rating

The hotel

Famous for the continuous white sand beach surrounding the entire island, Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is an idyllic setting for romantic and family trips alike. The 52 acre island allows for space and seclusion when you want it, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants with a great atmosphere and live music, when you’re ready for an upbeat evening. Whichever room type you opt for, you won’t be disappointed. Sunset Horizon Water Villas are great for couples getaways – savour that Maldivan sunset each day from your private outdoor jacuzzi with a sundowner in hand, these are some of the most coveted accommodations on the island. If there’s a group of you, you might want to opt for a Pool Beach Villa, with ample space for outdoor drinks on the beachfront terrace and a dip in the private pool. If you’re feeling active then there’s plenty to keep you on your feet, from watersports to tennis, or for a more relaxing activity then visit the award winning spa for a treatment, the kids will be well looked after in the kids’ club whilst you get some much needed “me time”. And it’s hard to know where to start when it comes to dining, from casual snacks by the pool to teppanyaki at your table, overwater champagne bar to beachfront fine dining, they have it all. You may even just fancy a pizza in the comfort of your villa, no requests is too big!

This is hands down our best vacation ever! Every staff is a credit to the resort and will go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Our room was cleaned twice daily. You’re spoilt for choice with the wide range of restaurants and if you don’t wish to eat one particular cuisine , you can always try the multicuisine buffet spread at Iru. Whether you’d like to relax at the pools or snorkel in the vast ocean surrounding the resort, or just laze around by the beach, or even indulge in some sports, there’s always something to keep you entertained. Our Butler Shahu has been exceptional , from answering any queries to arranging tours, he was just a message away! A special shout out to Dr Ram and his assistant. I wasn’t feeling well on the day we arrived at the resort, and they opened the clinic for me even though they had already shut. I had to go in again the next morning for some medication. Dr Ram is a very Polite and understanding Dr and puts you at ease. He even called on check up on me later in the day….much appreciated! The resort itself is absolutely mesmerizing! We would definitely not hesitate to stay here again . Thank you to every one at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi for your wonderful hospitality and service and making our stay memorable! Read less

Well where can I start. Our Butler Azzam (whom we had personal WhatsApp with) was impeccable and always on hand morning, noon and night to make sure we were having the best time possible, checking in on us all the time, I cannot thank him enough. As did the manager Naufal. All of the staff were just so friendly, attentive and couldn’t do enough for us and on that note I’d like to specifically name Bharath, Shimara, Nishal, Thirandu, Supun, Lola, Sreepathi, Benny, Asanka and Naresh. They all looked after us so well for the two weeks we were there so thank you all so much. I must make a HUGE mention to the LIVE BAND fronted by Niko. This band literally made our holiday and they were on almost every night in some capacity and they were awesome. Taking requests and just amazing musicians. We made great friends and I can honestly say if all the holidays I’ve been on through my life and that’s a lot, they are by far the best entertainment we’ve ever had at a holiday resort. Outstanding. All I will say is if you are going to go to Iri Fushi please make sure you book your restaurants in advance the week before you leave for your holidays as they get booked up pretty quick. The island is beautiful, the people are beautiful, food was great. Fully recommend you’ll love it Scott Read less

Most of waiters were very good and polite, but we particularly would like to mention Ganeesh and Amid, who provided an outstanding service. They made us feel like royalty and nothing was too much for them. Offering full attention, smiling, very polite and entertaining as well :) We felt extra welcomed whenever they were around. It's also worth mentioning our perfect butler Neeshaadh. He was there for us every day of our holidays, checking if we were happy with everything and dealing with any our needs and requests. Overall we had a lovely holidays. Read less
