Nice place to stay
Staff Vivian helped us a lot with the room arranging, thank you ❤️ However, not able to reach the restaurant (The Well Done) for dinner is a bit shamed causing by fully booked. Understood it's the peak season, but as for the 5 stars Villa, it's still can be improved. Though we heard it's a restaurant worth visit, there was no chance to prove it. Meanwhile, in-villa dining make a big plus. Food was delicious and the portion was fine. Honeymoon wine&cake and Christmas' dessert did surprise us thanks for that thoughtful arrangements. In general, the place worth visit. But if possible, please remove the orientation course diving for the people who own OW license. As for the journey of diving, we'd like to thank Max, the diving guide, with thoughtful and amazing diving experience.

GORGEOUS water villa stay!
The water villas are stunning, seriously the most beautiful place I've stayed. There are different levels of ocean villas, some larger than others and they face in different directions. You want to make sure to face towards the aqua sports and dock and NOT towards the house reef and local island, your view would be much better. The water villas allow you to jump right into the ocean and have a perfect view of the sunset. We stayed in a deluxe beach villa 5 nights and the water villa two nights and it was the ideal combo. Highly recommend this place!

INCREDIBLE hotel, FANTASTIC island vacation!
My friend and I had an incredible stay at Sun Aqua Vilu and would highly recommend it. Particularly, the restaurant and bar staff and cooks at the buffet were really wonderful. And the diving school is outstanding, top-notch. We were able to easily get certified in a few days and go for amazing dives. Azeem and his staff are the very best! The island is absolutely GORGEOUS, the most beautiful place I've ever been. The island even has its own house reef for snorkeling that you can swim to from the shore. The front desk staff were not helpful and often annoyed us or didn't understand our requests. My advice is to be firm with them to get what you want. MAJOR FLAGS: Be careful if you rent a beach villa, some face the local island which to me is a TERRIBLE view so just complain and try to get switched to one on the other side of the island which is heavenly and I couldn't have been happier staying there. Also, the food is VERY expensive so if the all-inclusive option isn't too spendy, I'd opt for that because the buffets are fantastic and well worth your money, I wish we had done that.

Best value for money for sure
Value for money it was fantastic, I stayed in the aqua suite which is in the water and has the big pool. Highly recommend to spend the extra its worth it. The sea plane from Male is a bit expensive its $450USD per person return, and the waiting time is quite a bit. I would suggest you look at speed boat transfers, they mught be cheaper. Nashid the island host was a total gentleman and great customer service from him.
