I have just returned from Sun Island, wow!! What a wonderful place, for so many many reasons. I stayed in a water bungalow as I had always wanted to try this, what a fantastic thing! I had my own patio overlooking the sea with sun loungers, with steps down into the sea. You can see from my photos! The colour,...

We just returned from our third holiday on Sun Island and were delighted to find it was as beautiful as ever. The beaches, grounds and gardens were well maintained and looked after. Unfortunately the standard beach bungalows are now tired and in need of a refurb as are the sun loungers and mattresses. However we were lucky enough to be...

I travelled to Sun Island in November 2016 with my husband. This was my 4th time in the Maldives and my second time on Sun Island. The last time I visited Sun Island, I absolutely loved it, so I was really looking forward to my visit. Unfortunately, I was left somewhat disappointed. In terms of positives, the bar staff, cleaning...

Despite being the "biggest resort in Maldives" there were no problems finding a private beach even if the resort is full. The snorkeling is not at its best since the house reefs are dead but still some nice fishes, saw a couple of baby black tip sharks right outside our bungalow. Went with the Padi diving center one day, they...

We were here for one week in January and had a great time! You can walk the island around within about 1,5 hours over the beach (if you walk through the water). The beach is absolutely beautiful; the sand is so white that it hurts your eyes if you don't wear sunglasses. It’s like powder. The whole island is maintained...

The journey is such a long one from Melbourne, Australia. Worth every hour spent in transit. The perfect place to relax, unwind and be pampered. No need to indulge in alcohol, the crystal blue waters and white sand, are something you can walk on and gaze into for hours. The bungalows were special, clean and tidy. Don't pack your hairdryer,...
