Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives Resort

Hilton Maldives Aerial

Formerly known as the Hilton Maldives – the Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives is absolutely a 5-star luxury resort with all the trimmings. There are 80 water villas plus 70 beach villas, making this one of the larger resorts in the Indian Ocean. The water villas are each private and secluded though, so this is an ideal place for a honeymoon or other romantic retreat.

Along with the size of the resort you get 10 restaurants and bars plus a huge spa and a long list of activities and water sports, so guests have more options than any other Maldives resort. From the moment you arrive in Malé and are helped aboard your scenic sea plane ride to the island, you’ll be given personal attention and service that makes each guest feel special.


The Irufushi Beach and Spa Resort is located in the Noonu Atoll, 170 kilometers north of the main island of Malé in the Maldives.

What the reviews say

Reviews for the Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives Resort are very good, perhaps even better than you’d expect for a former Hilton. This is a proper 5-star resort with all the amenities, and reviewers compliment the huge size of the rooms, the service, the setting, and the food in the restaurants. Many guests say that they would recommend this resort to their family and friends.

The one negative that some mention is the price, but that’s a common complaint for Maldives’ resorts, especially ones in the top price category.

Getting there

To reach the Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives Resort you’ll need to fly to the main Malé International Airport in the Maldives. From there you’ll be met by hotel staff who will assist you in boarding a sea plane for the 45-minute flight to the private island where the resort is located.
