Deliciously laid-back and irresistibly stylish

The new Sun Aqua Iru Veli serves up island indulgence with a playful twist. It occupies Aluvifushi, a stunning private island of Aluvifushi in South Nilandhe Atoll, with velvet-soft white sand beaches, set within its own vibrant lagoon, and surrounded by the spectacular sapphire ocean as far as the eye can see.

Relish the good life in our 125 sun-soaked suites.

Sprinkled over the lagoon and across the sugar-fine sands, these suites are bathed in warm, natural light. Each is a supremely comfy retreat with its own private pool.

Take your pick from decadently private couples suites or family suites with space for the whole crew.

Scrumptious bites that make life tastier – creative cocktails that tickle the spirit.

Take your taste buds on a journey with the freshest, yummiest global fusion fare. Maldivian curries, seafood straight from the ocean, a grill set to thrill and classic dishes done with zesty flair. Whether it’s spice you seek or sweets and treats, pucker up to pure Maldivian goodness.

A dash of decadence, a pinch of pampering. Lots of fun.

Immerse yourself in this island playground, with its fully equipped recreation centre, water sports, and a gloriously indulgent infinity pool and so much more.

Or unwind at Sun Aqua Spa, hovering over the cerulean lagoon with eight sumptuous pavilions steeped in soothing hues.
