The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi

Official Rating

‘Private island with award winning spa – beach and water villas'

Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is located on a private island in the north of the Indian Ocean. There are villas with private pools, which will be either directly on the beach or over the lagoon. Choose from intimate one bedroom/two person villas, to the largest which can accommodate up to ten people. Dining options include Japanese, Italian and local cuisine. There is an award-winning spa and a good variety of water sports including scuba diving and snorkelling. The resort organises excursions and you’ll find tennis, badminton and mini-golf amongst the land-based activities. Families are well catered for with a kids’ club and the island is big enough to offer nature walks.



In Our Opinion

‘If you are looking to explore the ocean, Sun Siyam Iru Fushi can offer excursions that include: snorkelling safaris, Lucky Dolphin Sunset Cruise, Holhudhoo Island Experience, Private Island Experience and fishing. Check out the excursion programme before your visit so you don’t miss out on a truly special experience.’
