Property Details


To tell it's just breathtaking is an understatement. The Sun Island Resort and Spa, reached by a 20-minute flight, is bathed in a warm sun, lined by palm trees, and surrounded by the azure waters of the Indian Ocean. These magnificent lagoons and white sand beaches are the nearest thing to paradise. The 462-room Sun Island Resort and Spa, which extends for approximately two complete kilometers, is an upper-middle-range resort situated on a large private island in the South Ari Atoll. Here, the important things are the sea, sand, food, and relaxation.

The bungalow-style rooms are simple, with dated furniture and standard bathrooms, but they have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, minibars, patios, and air conditioning. There are overwater bungalows available. Rooms vary from the spacious Sun Villa to the Two-Bedroom Family Villa and are situated on the beach or over the lagoon. During your visit, you'll have your own air-conditioned beach bungalow with a private sun deck, satellite TV, and drinks making facilities. You may still choose to upgrade to a water bungalow.

The resort has five bars, a 24-hour coffee shop, and five restaurants, three of which are specialty establishments. Meal and beverage plans are affordable, although there are several limitations. In addition, the restaurants are a lure in their own right. The Thai Sun Star Hotel, which specializes in Thai cuisine, is built on stilts at the end of an ocean jetty. When the sun sets slowly over the sea, it's the ideal setting for a romantic evening dinner. Or, in the heart of the hotel gardens, try the groundbreaking Zero Restaurant, which offers a gastronomic experience - beautifully delicious organic food.

The Sun Island Resort and Spa has everything you need to enjoy your vacation to the fullest. The spa seems like something out of a fantasy. Take the winding path through the woods to the glade, then reach the leafy treatment area. The Araamu Spa features a Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, and a variety of energizing and soothing therapies. Araamu Spa, the magnificent center spa, provides a range of therapies for our well-being, including leg massage, Thai massage, couples massage, and even treatments for infants.

Water sports and diving are unavoidably common in this resort, which has its own water sports center and diving center. There's also an opportunity to feed the sting rays! There are also several land and water activities, a PADI dive store, kid-friendly amenities, and a large pool. Beaches are suitable for sunbathing and shallow snorkeling. You can spend your days island-hopping, deep-sea fishing, or relaxing in that special kind of Maldives way.
