The feeling of total relax began in the nice lounge at the airport waiting for the seaplane. With a cold refreshing drink, overlooking the harbor where the seaplanes moored at piers, we felt all thoughts of work and stress just disappeared. The feeling only got better when we arrived at the resort. After a short briefing, we were showed to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sun-kissed sanctuary, our beautiful Paradise is covered by a lush layer of coconut palms and scented by the sweet fragrance of frangipanis and tropical flowers. Ringed by pristine coral reefs and clear turquoise waters, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a haven of peace, home to bright blooms and friendly fauna, with hermit crabs, grey herons and multi-colored geckoes among our exotic inhabitants. This delicate ecology offers quiet moments with nature, the opportunity to immerse in delicious serenity. Only 145 kilometers south of capital Malé, we're just a 35-minute seaplane ride from the international airport - a short but spectacularly scenic ride. ... more   less
