Set on Aluvifushi in the Maldives, a secluded, previously uninhabited private island forming part of the South Nilandhe Atoll, also known as the Dhaalu Atoll, Sun Aqua Iru Veli will offer guests the ultimate island indulgence with a playful twist.

Opening in November, the premium all-inclusive resort will fuse intimate indulgence with naturally playful elements to create a truly relaxing tropical idyll.

Sister resorts Sun Aqua Vilu Reef Maldives and Sun Aqua Pasikudah Sri Lanka marked the beginning of the Sun Aqua story, now Sun Aqua Iru Veli represents a new level of laid-back luxury in the collection. The Sun Aqua Signature offers guests a flexible, premium all-inclusive experience from dining, drinking with a shisha experience and a wide selection of wines from the wine cellar to champagne breakfast to kick start the day. Also included are diving, excursions and bespoke spa treatments.

Set on its own lagoon and surrounded by a perfect white-sand beach, the five-star Sun Aqua Iru Veli has 125 light-filled beach and overwater villas and suites that reflect the island’s unspoiled beauty, individually-decorated in natural tones and local artworks. Spacious, contemporary bathrooms reveal ocean views. Take your pick from decadently private couples’ or family suites with interconnecting spaces for the whole crew to rest, relax and recharge. All villas and suites have private freshwater swimming pools and sunbathing areas with complimentary minibars (wine, beers, soft drinks) replenished twice daily.

The Sun Aqua boutique-style all-inclusive experience means you will enjoy the freshest, global fusion fare, from champagne breakfasts and mouth-watering Maldivian curries to seafood straight from the ocean and classic dishes with a difference. Dine à deux on the beach, enjoy a fine dining experience in one of our three restaurants or keep it low key with family dinner in the privacy of your villa or room service – we offer private dining anywhere! Sun Aqua Iru Veli has its own wine cellar and our mixologist will create sundowners you’ll never forget and a wide selection of unlimited alcoholic drinks.

Take time out to be soothed at the tranquil Sun Aqua Spa with six over-water pavilions with double massage tables, open-air rain showers and romantic flower-strewn baths and a main spa house with hydrotherapy pools, steam, sauna and spa boutique. While you bliss out, our complimentary Kids Club welcomes little ones aged between three and 11 years old, if not, our complimentary babysitting service includes three hours per stay.
