Certificate of Excellence
A sun-kissed sanctuary, our beautiful Paradise is covered by a lush layer of coconut palms and scented by the sweet fragrance of frangipanis and tropical flowers. Ringed by pristine coral reefs and clear turquoise waters, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a haven of peace, home to bright blooms and friendly fauna, with hermit crabs, grey herons and multi-colored geckoes among our exotic inhabitants. This delicate ecology offers quiet moments with nature, the opportunity to immerse in delicious serenity. Only 145 kilometers south of capital Malé, we're just a 35-minute seaplane ride from the international airport - a short but spectacularly scenic ride.

Beautiful island and resort, we had high expectations but they were exceeded when we arrived. To live in a water villa and see all the fishes and the a sting ray passing by right under you is fantastic. We are very pleased but sad that we had to leave.

Having stayed at many different Islands we were looking forward to the Sun Aqua as we had booked a suite with a private pool. On arrival we were checked in quickly and loved the accommodation, it was the best accommodation we had stayed in by far. Dining was another

Dear Safari53247281705 Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent stay here at Sun Aqua Vilu Reef. We do apologize for your negative experiences. We would like to reassure you that your experience is most certainly not typical of Sun Aqua Vilu Reef. We're most regretful we fell short on food as this most unusual for us! Our Executive Chef takes great pride in producing the highest quality food and ensuring to serve at its best. Lobster BBQ buffet is regularly complimented for its quality and choice! We do regret to read about your experience with the cold and undercooked food, as we have not received any complaints from other guests - period! Therefore, for us it is quiet unjustifiable. We have also noted your feedback with regards to the service with the beverages. Thank you for your honesty in delivering these comments to us, for with such constructive feedback only we will be able to improve our services. Thank you again for the interest you have shown which is much appreciated and we hope your travels will bring you back to Sun Aqua Vilu Reef, where a warm welcome awaits you. Sunny regards, PR Team Sun Aqua Vilu Reef

Yes it does. Then the resort collects you in a boat. Quick trip to the resort like 2 minutes.

Hi. I just stayed in an Aqua Suite. There are 5 of them and they have a pool. I’m pretty certain the Aqua Villas don’t have pools. If you look at an aerial photo of the resort, you’ll see the 5 suites and their ‘white’ pools. To be fair, we hardly used the pool at all and if I went back again I’d go for one of the Deluxe Beach Bungalows with a pool and request one on the west side of the island for a better view. If you want more room though, the ‘Aqua’ suite or villa will not disappoint. In hindsight and for me and my wife, we’d have preferred to be in a bungalow on the beach but they will be smaller than the villas and suites. Either way, you’ll not be disappointed.

The beach villas are beautiful and still feel private. We have been to the Maldives 8 times and this island is amazing. Don’t be put off by reviews about the local island, the locals were there before the resort! Nice to see where the lovely Maldivian people live and work.
