The hotel

Whether it's a honeymoon, anniversary, or you just need some time away as a couple, this is the place for a romantic, intimate, island getaway. Here you will find carefree, barefoot relaxation, whether it's in a beachfront villa with your outdoor sofa swing, or if you opt the overwater option where you can lie on your hammock and watch the beautiful sunset. Couples spa massages and a complimentary sunset cruise will add that extra touch to make it a holiday to remember. However, if you're unable to get a babysitter for the little ones, the hotel is still a great option for families, with a kids club on hand to ensure you still have some alone time! Whoever you're travelling with, you're sure to unwind in this boutique resort with only 103 rooms, giving you the option for as little or as much interaction with others as you like. If you do fancy a little more activity, complimentary water sports are included, and there are excursions included to - visit Iru Veli or hop on a dolphin sunset cruise. Come evening you'll be spoilt for choice when picking a restaurant, all of which are accompanied by stunning ocean views. Afterwards, watch a movie under the stars, enjoy some local music, or simply retreat to your villa to relax with a drink from the minibar. When the seaplane arrives to take you home, you won't want to leave the island lifestyle.

We stayed in Sun Siyam in July for our Honeymoon. These were beautiful 7 days in paradise. Our villa was of perfect choice not far from the reef, so we were going snorkeling every day. Special big thank you to our guide Viktoriia, who made or vacation full of positive emotions and experiences. We will definitely be back!

Vilu Reef couldn’t be more unforgettable. It was one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives. The island is beautiful with some water sports to do in the clean sea, the staff there was always nice and ready to help. The food was perfect, we have the chance to taste different flavors which were really special. This is not the type of Hotel concept which the food is all the same, like pizzas, pastas, etc… They really make an effort to show the most valuable tastes they have around. We can’t forget to mention the sympathy, kindness and attention of the Chef Nittin and all of his team. Vilu Reef has a some bars where people can go depending on the time of the day. All the staff are really nice and ready to help in all the circumstances. The house keeping team were extreamly profissional and they left everything perfect, twice a day. And we really like to saw that this hotel have a team to do the cleaning of the pool everyday, this is amazing. Finally, the hosting team were amazing showing us the installations, proposing some different things to do and facilitating our arrival and departure without stress. Particularly, Mohamed made our experience to be calm and relaxed. We arrived home full for energy for our day lives. Read less
