The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is a stunning hideaway which is discreetly tucked within the unspoilt Noonu Atoll, occupying an island with 52 acres of powdery white beach and abundant tropical vegetation. The island is ninety-one miles from Male International Airport and accessed only by a scenic 45 minute seaplane ride.
The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi was named 'Indian Ocean's Leading Family Resort' and 'Maldives' Leading Resort' at the 2017 World Travel Awards.
The Beach Villas all benefit from open-air garden bathrooms, en suite facilities and spacious private sundecks with comfortable furnishings as well air conditioning, ceiling fans, satellite TV and fully stocked mini bars. The Water Villas are accessed by a footbridge connecting them to the main island and offer the epitome of island living as they are extremely private with an open plan layout and a sundeck with a Jacuzzi. The bedroom, living room and bathroom all lead onto the vast deck area and offer unparalleled views of this wonderful location.
Drawing on the local fresh fish and seafood, the Iru Fushi chefs are ready to conjure up succulent and tempting cuisine from around the world, whether it's a romantic six-course dinner under the stars or a leisurely al fresco lunch on the beach. With 14 bars and restaurants to choose from plus a coffee shop there's something to suit all tastes.
The Sun Spa at Iru Fushi is set within the lush vegetation of the island. In keeping with the island’s relaxed ambiance, the spa uses traditional methods to relax and rejuvenate using the Five Elements and traditional Ayurveda. Each of the fifteen Spa Pavilions has wall-to-wall sliding doors leading onto a spacious relaxation deck overlooking the beach.
We arrived by seaplane at Iru Fushi to be met with a very warm Maldivian welcome. We had beach villas which were huge, plenty of room for a roll away bed if you had a young child, or just space to chill.
Iru Fushi has all the polish of a Hilton Hotel but not in the usual city setting. If you are an experienced traveller, you won’t be disappointed if you book your holiday to this Maldives island.
There are also plenty of bars at Iru Fushi - Water's Edge serves drinks and snacks throughout the day, Bubble Lounge is an elegant overwater venue, Fluid offers snacks and light lunches by the pool, Reflections is in an adults-only area of the resort, and the Wine Cellar offers wine tasting with plenty of rare and vintage wines.
