Sun Island Maldives Specialities
If this is your honeymoon you’ll receive a bottle of Champagne and a fruit basket as will couples celebrating their Silver and golden wedding anniversary… Just remember to provide the relevant certificates.
The Italian restaurant is very popular with its wood fired oven. Their pizzas are prized! The restaurant lies at the end of a jetty out over the water. If you’re feeling languid you can order room service and it’s all delivered by bike!
The Sun Island Spa is luxurious and you can enjoy treatments in spacious outdoor areas partially secluded with a massage table and shower.
As you lie there contemplating what the day may hold for you, the sun spills through the banyans and flickers across the spa walls like a bird in flight. You smile to yourself... and soak up the Sun Island Maldives...
Hmm… Anything else catch your eye?
Bicycles are available for hire on Sun Island and are well worth it for getting about.
We’ve seen reports of breakfast only being served between 7.30am and 9.00am so if you’re on the far side of the island with a 20 minute walk and it’s 8.45am you may want to hire a bike or choose a room closer to the restaurant!
Sometimes you might get a better deal if you book
a full board package
for Sun Island then upgrade to all inclusive on arrival. Check the prices folks!
More resorts are thinking up ways to entertain you and keep you amused especially if it rains. Welcome to the Sun Island Maldives crab race… You buy a crab, bet on it and race the crustacean with other enthused crab fans… Not really our thing but they’re well groomed and let out to pasture (or should that be beach?) after the races…
Finally just to say that it’s important to know your activities. The free ones and the ones you book for.
Charley and I usually book the free activities offered on the day we arrive. The reception area holds a book and you can choose the date when you wish to go on these excursions.
It’s that extra bit of peace of mind and can help with planning especially if you have children with you.
