The water villa experience was ultimate. However, this is not value for money spent for a single day visit and don't get time to enjoy the lavish morning breakfast the next day as you have early morning boat transfer.

10/10 Exceptional

My wife and I stayed at 3 different properties in the Maldives. Sun Siyam Olhuveli's grand water villa was definitely the most modern and the deck was the most spacious. It is an expansive property made up of 3 islands which may not be to everyone's liking. They have golf carts going from early in the morning to late at night so it is not a problem. We stayed on Dream Island. If we went back we would stay on the adult only True Blue Romance Island. You can still walk from Dream to True Blue in less than 10 minutes and use the adult only pool which we did daily. The staff is friendly. Big shout out to the waiter at the pool Pradeep. He made our stay at Olhuveli one to remember.

First I want to say the staff is very rude. We went for our honeymoon and it was almost ruined. Shuttles will not stop for you. Even when it’s pitch black at night they expect you to walk around the huge resort site. They are constantly saying no we do go to this area when it’s on the same resort. My husband wanted to jet ski and was given a hard time. We stayed in a over water villa and the beds were so hard. I would wake up literally in aching pains. Breakfast staff is great in sunset bar but other places where buffet will not restock the buffet and if you ask for something the answer is no. The speedboat ride was very scary. However, the property is clean. Can drinks are $6.00 in the room. Food is poor we could only eat breakfast and sometimes the pizza bar. The resort is beautiful we just made the best out of it. Also, we did enjoy our honeymoon dinner provided at island pizza.

The staff was very friendly, whether it was room service, restaurants or reception. Very friendly. I have to say that once we were in are room, it was very confusing on how to book activites or reservations for meals. The excursion that we took was for snorkeling and it was literally a 20 minute boat ride, 25 minutes of snorkeling and 20 min ride back. That was disappointing. All inclusive should include more that 25 minute snorkle excursion. Food wasn't what i thought it would. Should be more seafood.

My husband and I traveled here for our honeymoon and we had the most amazing time of our lives. The island is absolutely breathtaking and the staff goes above and beyond to cater to all your needs. Our host, CJ was absolutely phenomenal. He organized so many incredible things for us and was always such a pleasure to speak with. I would recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the Maldives. I spend WEEKS researching the best property and I can assure you NOTHING beats this property. It has props and everything needed for perfect photo shoots and is incredibly romantic. They also have things for kids to do as well! Overall it’s just amazing.
