With UK visitors to the Maldives the new Sun Aqua Iru Veli will be a luxury offering for all-inclusive visitors.
Set on Aluvifushi, 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 October, 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 and 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.
Offering 125 villas and suites, the accommodation at Sun Aqua Iru Veli has been furnished to reflect and compliment the islands’s unspoilt beauty. There are a choice of couple or family suites with interconnecting spaces and all villas and suites have freshwater swimming pools and sunbathing areas with complimentary mini bars (wine, beers, soft drinks).
Dine anytime, anywhere
The Sun Aqua boutique-style all-inclusive experience means guests 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, fine dining experience in one of our three restaurants or in villa/room service dining are all on offer and the Sun Aqua Iru Veli has its own wine cellar with mixologist.
