If you’re looking for understated luxury with your Maldivian escape, Sun Siyam Resorts is the hotel group for you – whatever your travel style.

Enter the phenomenon of laid-back luxury, which, when it comes to the Maldives, is perfected by Sun Siyam Resorts. As well as sleek and stylish design across the four Maldivian resorts, each team has warm and friendly staff always on hand to help while also offering peace and privacy for holiday-goers.

Best of all, Sun Siyam Resorts has a Maldivian paradise designed for every vacation style – reconnecting with nature through adventurous activities, switching off with a relaxation-centric itinerary, spending quality family time with an activity-packed getaway, or closing the door to the rest of the world with a romantic escape.

Sign up for a retreat at Sun Siyam Iru Veli, the five-star resort known for its stress-free ethos. Island-dwellers can unwind in the suite of their dreams – every option comes complete with a private pool– before walking the pristine beaches barefoot and exploring the island activities.
