Maldives – Affordable luxury thanks to Sun Siyam Olhuveli

For many people, a trip to the Maldives remains a dream, but it is not that impossible. The archipelago in the Indian Ocean consists of no fewer than 1,190 coral islands, grouped into 26 atolls. About a hundred of those islands have been transformed into luxury holiday resorts. Sun Siyam is one of the better known players with five holiday resorts. Sun Siyam Olhuveli is guaranteed to make your dreams come true.

Pearly white beaches and a sky blue ocean are the most famous features of the Maldives. This is no different at Sun Siyam Olhuveli. From the capital Malé, where international flights land, it is a 45-minute speedboat journey to this holiday paradise. Sun Siyam Olhuveli consists of three different islands where you can relax extensively.

Affordable luxury. That’s the best way to describe Sun Siyam Olhuveli. The various accommodations have a modern design, but with an eye for the Maldivian tradition. You can choose from beach villas or water villas that can accommodate two to six people. All villas have a flat-screen TV, safe, air conditioning and iron.

There is no shortage of restaurants at Sun Siyam Olhuveli. Do you opt for à la carte or do you prefer a buffet formula? Everything is possible in the various restaurants spread across the islands. Fish lovers will undoubtedly get their money’s worth during one of the barbecues in the soft sand. You will undoubtedly never forget the taste of Maldivian lobster. Of course there are many other options. Choose one of the numerous pizzas in Island Pizza, get acquainted with Thai cuisine in Siyam Orchid or be tempted by Indian dishes in Namaste.

Choose from one of the three swimming pools at Sun Siyam Olhuveli. Each swimming pool has its own bar.

The Lagoon Bar is the place to be.

You will not easily find a larger playground. Sun Siyam Olhuveli offers various relaxation options.

A holiday at Sun Siyam Olhuveli is not complete without seeing the impressive manta rays. At Manta Point almost every evening several manta rays come to feed on plankton.
