A blissful tropical climate softened by Atlantic trade winds, pinkish-white, sugar-soft beaches, fabulous scuba diving, and laid-back catamaran cruises… These are just some of the fabulous experiences to be savoured in one of the Caribbean’s most popular and welcoming destinations - Barbados.
Luxury stays with Sun Siyam Resorts in the Maldives
Locally owned and run, the Sun Siyam group stands out in the tropical-island paradise of the Maldives for being deeply rooted in its local communities. Perfect for couples, groups of friends and families, its four- or five-star options offer brilliant-value options including all-inclusive packages, and in some cases special kids’ deals.
Sun Siyam Iru Fushi – brilliant for families
Iru Fushi’s stylish beach and overwater villas with butler service feature up to three bedrooms, making them perfect for multigenerational holidays. Unusually, the resort counts under-15s as children, who go free with two paying adults in the same room and enjoy the same board basis free of charge.
Other child-friendly features of this Noonu Atoll property include a family pool, a kids’ underwater park in the lagoon and a kids’ club that helps them explore the island. Iru Fushi extends over 52 acres, ensuring both space and seclusion and fantastic facilities, from snorkeling and diving on the house reef (‘Nemo’s reef’ has clownfish and turtles) to dolphin cruises, fishing and cultural outings.
While kids are busy making new friends, grown-ups can escape to the adult-only infinity pool with Indian Ocean views or the award-winning Spa by Thalgo France with its holistic treatments blending ages-old wisdom with contemporary techniques, hydrotherapy area, and yoga and Pilates studio.
Sun Siyam Iru Veli – for the private pool with every suite
This all-inclusive property in the South Nilandhe Atoll has a relatively intimate 125 beach and water villas and suites, all with their own freshwater plunge or swimming pool. Airy and contemporary, they include beachfront options and duplex villas.
Other big draws include an overwater spa with hydrotherapy pools, SSI diving school, snorkeling around the house reef, windsurfing, jet-skiing, sailing, banana-boating, kayaking, local island tours, sunset and big-game fishing, sunset cruises and cultural excursions. Additionally, premium all inclusive packages include selected activities such as excursions, wind surfing lessons, and an allocated spa credit. For those travelling as a family, there’s both a complimentary kids’ club and an array of activities for families to enjoy together, including table tennis, tennis, badminton and beach volleyball.
The four restaurants all have their own laidback charm and specialities, including Fresh Water with its poolside snacks and Maldivian favourites, and there are also weekly toes-in-the-sand beach barbecues and a welcoming wine cellar celebrating the world’s finest vintages, some rare, and hosting tastings. The all inclusive dining offerings are fantastic, covering all meals and extras such as afternoon tea.
Siyam World – for laidback luxury with an array of experiences
All bars at this new-in-2021, all-inclusive island getaway serve champagne, and there’s a complimentary dolphin sunset cruise or snorkeling safari for each guest in addition to the wealth of inclusive water sports and activities ranging from yoga and meditation to beach bootcamps. Meanwhile, guests in the resort’s Beach House Collection get special additional privileges, including access to an exclusive Japanese restaurant, a complimentary spa treatment or dive, a wellness hamper from the spa and a floating breakfast on one morning of their stay.
This is a resort that combines several adult-only spaces– including an infinity pool and a sports bar with drinks and snacks around the clock – with brilliant family amenities that embrace a kids’ club, teen zone and the Maldives’ biggest floating water park, within the sunrise lagoon. The vast range of beach and overwater villas suits everyone from couples seeking a blissful retreat to multigenerational parties or other groups of family or friends – the largest villas have six bedrooms, sleeping a total of 16.
