Maldivian getaways for every explorer

Whether you’re seeking family fun, tropical romance, spa pampering or liquid thrills, let Sun Siyam Resorts point you towards sand-dusted, wave-lapped perfection


When holidaying somewhere as unabashedly glorious as the Maldives, one needs a suitably superb resort to boot. Sun Siyam Resorts more than delivers, with its elevated all-inclusive dining, generous extras for children and treasure-island activities, including floating breakfasts, easy snorkelling just offshore, and coconut crafts for kids. Paradise awaits.

A decadent pool on the beach at Sun Siyam Olhuveli


Why settle for one private island when you can have several Indian Ocean idylls at your disposal? Life at Sun Siyam Olhuveli unfurls in a hazy, golden, pampering multi-island blur. Heaven has never been more accessible: the resort is a 45-minute speedboat ride from Malé-Velana Airport, with no seaplane transfer needed. Water babies of all ages are in luck: there are two children’s pools and one adults-only stunner, but with the lagoon glinting and glimmering close by, you might find yourself answering its siren call instead. Liquid thrills include sailing, kitesurfing or shipwreck diving. You can also go snorkelling, and you may be lucky enough to spot manta rays or benign nurse or whale sharks. Lures for landlubbers include table tennis, volleyball, tennis and badminton; there’s also a complimentary kids’ club.

Blissful bonus Two children under 15 can stay and eat for free, with free speedboat transfers.

Private deck of an ocean suite at Sun Siyam Iru Veli (also opening image)


As aphrodisiacal locations go, Sun Siyam Iru Veli takes some beating. Even the local dolphins got the memo, obligingly swimming past the house reef daily. Socks and shoes are pretty much illegal: remove such prosaic trappings of normal life and instead scrunch your toes into the silky, sun-warmed sand. As magnetic as those front-row ocean views are, the resort has other distractions galore, from Wine Academy tastings to fishing lessons with the locals, seafood feasts, weekly pool parties, Champagne on tap, and massages and beauty rituals served up in glass-bottomed treatment rooms. Smirk at passing barracudas, snapper and parrotfish while you’re being knuckled and kneaded. Each villa has a private pool and more liquid thrills await at the alluring overwater spa, which woos with hydrotherapy.

Blissful bonus The resort’s Premium All-Inclusive includes delicious meals, a $100 spa credit or three weekly dives for certified divers, three excursions, a windsurfing class and a jet-ski credit.

Open-air spa treatment at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi


At Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, decisions don’t get more difficult than: “Sunset villa or sunrise villa?” and, “Chocolate bath before or after lunch?” Graced with the kind of pristine beaches that attract Bounty ads and supermodels, this ravishing resort guarantees unabashed R&R. Go for a stroll and you’ll encounter an island playground with tempting day beds, inviting swings and bathtubs big enough for Poseidon and Amphitrite. Snorkel by day, enjoy the outdoor cinema by night. We’ve left the best bit till last. Drum roll… The Spa by Thalgo France has 20 treatment rooms and five consecutive ‘Best Luxury Spa’ awards to its name. Pick from more than 160 treatments, drawing upon Ayurveda, Chinese medicine and Maldivian healing. There’s even a Sweet Pea Spa for kids.

Blissful bonus Little ones will love the lagoon’s underwater park, Nemo Garden.

The vast water park at Siyam World


Itsy-bitsy bikinis and budgie-smugglers at the ready: Siyam World is home to the largest floating water park in the Indian Ocean. In fact, everything here seems supersized: the island escape encompasses 54 hectares, including 6km of house reef and 4km of beaches. Accommodation ranges from one-bedroom villas to 3,000sqm residences. Book an overwater villa with a water slide for limitless ‘bombs away’ moments, or make a splash at the Water Park as you bounce on water trampolines, whoosh down slides and scale climbing walls and rafts. Or take advantage of the many sports on offer, both at sea and on dry land. There are also seven bars (one open 24/7) and 11 restaurants, many serving speciality cuisines. For more sedentary moments, the Veyo Spa draws inspiration from the lush tropical vegetation that surrounds it. No wonder the resort’s tagline is: ‘I can have it all’.

Blissful bonus Zumbini classes engage kids and teens with music, dance and educational tools.
