World-class dining, activities and excursions are free with Sun Siyam Resorts’ all-inclusive packages
For clients dreaming of the ultimate sun‑soaked getaway, where relaxation meets high-energy fun, all set against the glistening Indian Ocean, Sun Siyam Resorts has the answer.
The Maldives archipelago is home to five of the stunning Sun Siyam Resorts properties: Sun Siyam Vilu Reef, Sun
Siyam Iru Veli, Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, Sun Siyam Olhuveli and Siyam World. The sixth and final property in the Sun Siyam Resorts repertoire, Sun Siyam Pasikudah, is nestled among the palm trees of Sri Lanka’s east coast.
Whichever property your clients choose to stay at, they’ll be met with sweeping sea views complete with prime spots for glimpsing marine life, as well as a choice of world-class dining locations and activities for exploring the island and beyond.
Each resort has its own unique identity – for laidback luxe, try Iru Veli, while action and adventure is a big draw at Siyam World – but providing an unforgettable experience is one thing all six properties have in common.
And it’s great value for money too, with excursions, a mini bar and spa credit included at some resorts, as part of the all-inclusive packages.
Each of the Sun Siyam Resorts properties is well-equipped for guests to enjoy an action-packed holiday. If watersports are a must for your clients, recommend Iru Veli, where guests can take to the turquoise waters for a range of activities, as part of the price of their all-inclusive stay.
Within the resort’s all-inclusive offering, guests can enjoy three complimentary excursions during their stay, including a guided snorkelling tour for the chance to come face-to-face with some of the Indian Ocean’s marine life. Unlimited use of kayaks and paddleboards offer the perfect opportunity for guests to explore beyond the shoreline, while the jetski credit given to each adult will be sure to get hearts racing.
To unwind after a busy day, Iru Veli guests can swap their dive credit for a spa credit to try out the double massage beds or indulge in one of the treatments that uses natural ingredients.
Over at Iru Fushi, guests can explore the island’s vegetation that’s teeming with life on a complimentary guided nature walk, or find out more about traditional crafts and discover the use of natural materials such as shells and coconuts in arty creations.
A menu of choice
Dining options abound across Sun Siyam Resorts. At Vilu Reef – the portfolio’s first property – there’s a dine-around meal plan for guests to sample at their leisure. Indian, Italian and fresh seafood spots sit alongside an all-day restaurant serving Western and Maldivian favourites.
If your clients are interested in sampling an even more extensive dining package, recommend Iru Fushi, where 14 bars and restaurants promise everything from traditional local dishes and fresh seafood to homemade ice-cream and modern takes on global favourites. Guests can also enjoy handcrafted cocktails and evening entertainment at the hotel’s beachfront bar.
Over at Siyam World – the newest addition to the Sun Siyam Resorts collection – young families and those who can’t sit still are in for a treat. The 24-hour premium benefits, included in the elevated all-inclusive package, encompass everything from special excursions such as sunset cruises and snorkelling safaris, to a different activity for each day of the week.
Watersports such as windsurfing and canoeing are free for all water lovers, while, back on dry land, those who want to stay active can get competitive over a game of football on the international-sized pitch or try out one of the three multi-surface tennis courts.
