Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a luxurious island resort with one of the most amazing beaches that we have ever seen! Small and intimate with expansive white sand beaches fringed by a superb aquamarine house reef, this island is one of our favourites for couples and honeymooners. Sun Aqua Vilu Reef was named 'Indian Ocean's Leading Water Villa Resort' at the 2017 World Travel Awards.
The resort occupies Meedhuffushi Island in South Nilhande Atoll, 145 km south of Male Airport and reached by a 35 minute seaplane flight - a dedicated seaplane lounge at Male airport allows guests to relax or freshen up before the onward journey.
Recently refurbished accommodation is split between 10 different villa categories, from a Beach Villa to the Presidential Suite. All villas offer laid back luxury either on the beach or over the lagoon, with brightly coloured fabrics and comfortable furnishings.
With a range of complimentary and chargeable activities available, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef allows guests to have the tranquil castaway experience with the option to explore the water surrounding them. Complimentary activities include swimming pools, tennis, a children’s playground, fitness room, badminton and evening entertainment, while chargeable activities include catamaran sailing, diving, kite boarding, windsurfing, fishing and much more. The island's house reef is superb while stingrays can be seen from the beach. There is also a small spa which offers a range of Ayurvedic rituals, aromatherapy massages and other relaxing treatments.
Sun Aqua Vilu Reef offers guests a range of dining options from cocktails at the Pool Bar, fresh grilled seafood and fish at The Well Done and your morning buffet style breakfast at Aqua restaurant. For something special you can arrange for the resort to set up private dining for you – on the beach, a private island… the choice is yours.
