Dear Sun Siyam Ohluveli, I am writing to express my sincere appreciation for the exceptional experience my family and I had during our recent stay at your esteemed resort. As seasoned travelers, we have always held the Maldives in high regard, and our experience at Sun Siyam Ohluveli has solidified its reputation as one of the finest destinations in the world. From the moment we arrived at Male, we were met by our knowledgeable guide who efficiently facilitated our transfer to the resort via speedboat. This seamless transition was made possible by the professionalism and courtesy of Mr. Ali, and we are grateful for his assistance. Upon our arrival at the resort, we were greeted by our dedicated host, CJ, who exemplified the utmost professionalism and attentiveness. CJ effortlessly guided us through the check-in process and graciously escorted us to our accommodations. His warm and friendly demeanor immediately put us at ease, and we extend our sincere gratitude to CJ for his exceptional service. Our initial accommodation, aptly named Waterside, left us in awe of its breathtaking beauty and luxurious amenities. From our room overlooking the sea to the exquisite pool, every detail was meticulously designed to provide an unforgettable experience. Shortly after settling in, we had the pleasure of meeting Yaesin, our room attendant. Yaesin's commitment to ensuring our utmost comfort and satisfaction was truly remarkable. His attention to detail, prompt service, and genuine care for our well-being made our stay all the more memorable. We extend our heartfelt appreciation to Yaesin for his exceptional service. Following a delightful stay at Waterside, we were fortunate to experience the wonders of Beachside, our second accommodation. The seamless transition between the two accommodations further exemplified the efficiency and professionalism of your staff. Beachside, with its private beach and pool, surpassed our expectations and provided a truly unforgettable experience for our family. We commend the entire team for their outstanding service during this transition. The culinary offerings at your resort exceeded our expectations in every way. We had the pleasure of sampling the delectable delights from each of your restaurants, and the quality of the cuisine was unparalleled. What truly set our dining experiences apart was the warm and welcoming nature of your staff. Despite the scale of the resort, each team member took the time to remember our names, preferences, and even engaged in meaningful conversations. We extend our heartfelt thanks to Rashmi for her exceptional hosting, as well as the talented chefs who delighted our palates with their culinary creations. The Sports Center at your resort was a highlight for our family. The team of dedicated professionals provided an exceptional experience, catering to our every need and ensuring our enjoyment of the various activities available. We were particularly impressed by the team's professionalism and their ability to create a welcoming and pressure-free environment. We extend our sincere gratitude to the Sports Center team for their outstanding service. While it is impossible to mention each team member by name, we would like to express our gratitude to all the SSO heroes who made our stay truly unforgettable. Your team's unwavering dedication, attention to detail, and genuine hospitality have left an indelible impression on us. We feel honored to have been treated with such care and respect, and we can wholeheartedly say that we will return to Sun Siyam Ohluveli for many years to come. I would like to extend a special thank you to Yeasin, Kristina, CJ, Hoodh, Raas, Pradip, Farra, Shaun, Khaled, Biljij, Rohita, Rashmi, Kadek, Gokul, Bakaa, Chintha, Haisham, Apoo, Yoode, Cloud, and Chamil for their exceptional service and attention to detail. Their commitment to ensuring our utmost comfort and satisfaction was truly commendable. Additionally, it was a pleasure to meet Shaheen, Dr. Aiman, Hasnain, and Hassan Adil, who extended their hospitality to us. Their presence and assistance further enhanced our overall experience at Sun Siyam Ohluveli. In conclusion, we have spent the past two days reflecting on our experience and searching for any faults or shortcomings, but we can confidently say that none were found. As a family of four, we eagerly anticipate our next visit to your exceptional resort. Thank you once again for providing us with an unparalleled experience that has left an everlasting impression on our hearts. With utmost appreciation and warm regards, Panu & Family Read less

We stayed for 4 nights at Siyam Olhuveli and enjoyed it thoroughly. We had the Thai buffet on Friday evening in Restaurant Siyam Orchid. It was amazing! Every dish was a treat for the palate. Bravo to chef Ushman. And a big thank you to Akash and Asiska for waiting on us in a very professional manner.

We've spent a lovely week at the Dream island of the resort, stayed in overwater villa as family of 4. Our first experience in Maldives and everything was beyond expectations. Amenities are great, house reef makes every day and adventure, went snorkeling to see lots of sharks, coral forest, turtles. Food was great, the staff was extremely welcoming and positive. We've celebrated our daughter's birthday during the stay and from morning till night we were getting pleasant surprises like birthday card from our lovely host Clovie, birthday cake delivered to the room, balloons for breakfast and dinner, decorations in the room. Another unexpected yet pleasant surprise was an adult-only island that is part of the resort run by TUI. Few times we left our kids in the kids club and went there to enjoy some tranquility. Highly recommend the place! Read less
