This October, Sun Aqua Iru Veli is set to open its doors on Dhaalu Atoll’s private island, Aluvifushi, in the Maldives.
Located just a 35-minute seaplane transfer from Velana International Airport, the premium all-inclusive resort will offer the ultimate island indulgence with a fun twist. Boasting 125 light-filled beach and over-water villas and suites, the five-star Sun Aqua Iru Veli is set in its own lagoon, embraced by a glistening white-sand beach. Spacious, contemporary private couples’ or family suites with interconnecting spaces will be available, with all villas and suites featuring private freshwater swimming pools and sunbathing areas.
With the all-inclusive concept, guests can indulge in true Maldivian cuisine and the freshest seafood at the resort’s three lavish restaurants or can opt to dine in the privacy of their own villas with family.
For wellness enthusiasts, the Sun Aqua Spa will feature six over-water pavilions with double massage tables, open-air rain showers and romantic flower-strewn baths, as well as a main spa house with hydrotherapy pools, steam, sauna and spa boutique.
Children can enjoy the resort’s complimentary Kids’ Club for children between the ages of three and 11, while a complimentary babysitting service also available.
Meanwhile, exhilarating activities await guests at Sun Aqua Iru Veli’s water sports centre and infinity pool. Dhaalu Atoll is becoming a diving hotspot with clear waters teeming with dolphins, sting rays, whale sharks and a myriad of tropical fish, offering excellent channel dives.
Guests can select three dives per stay or swap for spa credit of up to $100 per day. The use of snorkeling equipment is complimentary for all guests.
Excursions are inclusive of a complimentary half hour group wind surfing lesson and a 15-minute jet ski ride per person, a dolphin cruise, guided snorkeling safari tour, sunset cruise and local island discovery. Additionally, guests will have the chance to experience Sun Aqua Iru Veli’s sister resort, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef, which is 10-minute speedboat ride away, whether for dinner or a night or two.
