We stayed at this resort for almost two weeks, the first in the villa on the water, absolutely fantastic, the second in the large villa on the beach, lovely and perhaps more suitable for families. The resort is wonderful, clean, very helpful and smiling staff, high standard, many activities can be done. The breakfast is very rich but dinner is the real top and every evening the menù changes. The freshest tuna is the spearhead. In the evening, fun is guaranteed with Sherly and Joseph, really. good and engaging. The top for me was diving, it was the first time but i met Token who immediatly put me at ease explaining everything with a lot of patience and considerable competence, a guarantee. I will never thank him enough for the underwater photo shoot too. I recommend doing at least two with an attached boat ride the seabed is really rich in an immense variety of fish and corals. Treated really well, we made friends with several people and left a little pièce of heart, to come back!!

I highly recommend this island for holiday. The grand water villa is awesome, the members of the staff were very kind and helpful, and the marine life was extraordinary. Watching manta rayas after dinner was a compulsory program every evening.
Unfortunatelly we had to chech the medical service as well. The doctor was very accurate and kind, and he helped my son a lot! Thnak you!

We went to Sun Siyam for our honeymoon. Its the most beautiful location surrounded by clear waters. What really made our trip is the hospitality and the friendly nature of all the local people who worked at the island and ensured our stay is perfect. A highlight would be the honeymoon dinner provided by Sun Siyam at the Dhoni Bar/Island Pizza. We were greeted by Arief who took care of us all evening. The food was delicious and desserts were even better! The manager, Shiau, also personally came to check in on us through the evening. The whole team ensured it was a perfect evening!

We also visited Island Pizza for lunch pretty much everyday. The food is lovely and they make it to your liking. Rukhsan has been taking care of us everytime!

We stayed in several different rooms- beach villa and water villa. Rumesh was part of our house keeping staff at the Grand beach villa. He really ensured that the room was clean (even with all the sand we kept bringing in!) and also checked if we needed anything. He was a very friendly, smiley person to see every morning and really took care of us. He also made the most beautiful drawings on the bed!

We also did several excursions but one that really stands out is the 3 point snorkel. Kuley arranged the excursion for us and made the whole process easy. Adam took care of us during the snorkeling and made the whole experience so enjoyable!

Afeef, a staff member you will see around the Island, is always a friendly person to have around. He took several photos for us but also almost always checked in on us. He really ensured all the guests are happy with everything.

Lastly Dinesh, the doctor on the island, was extremely helpful when I fell ill. He is one of the kindest doctors I have seen and really made sure I was taken care of.

The improvements I would suggest are having more buggies and free water around the island.

Apart from this I can only thank all the staff who really made our whole trip enjoyable. We will never forget the hospitable nature of the Maldivian people!

Beautiful surroundings and lovely hotel , Dhoni Bar a particular highlight as adults only. Would be nice to have a breakfast service there just for adults for our next trip. Maybe even have a non buffet option for evening meal as part of all inclusive.
