A bold new world of possibilities has arrived in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll, with the official opening of the hotly anticipated island resort game changer Siyam World on 28th October 2021. A quirky, carefree playground promising an eye-popping array of accommodation options and “never-seen-before” experiences across land, sea and sky, Siyam World’s arrival is set to transform the monotonous Maldivian holiday mould with its striking new vision of the Indian Ocean archipelago’s rich natural wonders. Siyam World islanders had an opening ceremony before the arrival of the first guests with then hoisting of Siyam World, The Beach House Collection and Maldives flag and a small speech by the managing director, Mr. Siyam followed by breakfast with all islanders. To celebrate this milestone moment for Maldives tourism, the first arrivals were warmly welcomed with a traditional Maldivian dance and bodu beru.
The managing director of Sun Siyam Resorts, Ahmed Siyam, the visionary behind Siyam World Maldives stated “This island is one of the most unique products we have developed as a group, a game changer and record breaker in every way, there will be no resort that can measure up in terms of never-seen-before experiences, the abundance of space and the variety of accommodation. We are excited to welcome our very first guests at Siyam World and looking forward to deliver an unforgettable holiday experience for everyone.”
Tom Mcloughlin, the island chief said “We are on one of the largest natural islands naturally formed and not reclaimed which ensures a pristine house reef which even includes the famous snow-white dive site in the Maldives.”
Forging its own maverick path away from the Maldivian mainstream, Siyam World is on a mission to bring guests the broadest offering of inimitable experiences and pioneering concepts ever seen in the Maldives. Guests are invited to make the most of the resort’s revolutionary WOW! 24hrs Premium All-Inclusive with an ever-expanding A-to-Z of WOW! experiences – from mastering the waves with unlimited access to the Indian Ocean’s biggest floating water park, Siyam Water World; to finessing their footwork on the resort’s international FIFA-standard football pitch.
Banishing preconceptions of monotonous dining in the Maldives, Siyam World invites guests to enjoy an unlimited medley of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages across no fewer than a dozen restaurants and bars. Breakfast is served at beachside buffets Tempo and Baraabaru, while Jungali, Mint and Together form an irresistible quartet of all-day pool bars. As evening falls, guests can dine their way across culinary continents, with à la carte Spanish, Indian and Thai cuisine at Andalucia, Kurry Leaf and Takrai complimented by Siyam World’s signature contemporary Maldivian restaurant, The Wahoo Grill. Night owls can head on to the island’s 24hr sports bar KulhiVaru, while underground wine cellar and fine dining room, Barrique, is also available at an additional charge.
Veyo Spa, a natural haven set within the lush tropical jungle, is the jumping off point for a journey of continual healing. Spacious treatment villas, relaxation areas, hydro facilities and self-service health bar Himeyn Bageecha which translates to relaxing garden form a nurturing space in which to restart, refocus and reconnect. Treatments combine ancient healing therapies inspired by Eastern and Western practices and are complemented by local artisans and wellness products, including organic Maldivian brand, Atoll Coco. Guests can test their limits with the ultimate beach gym workout, Seashore Bootcamp, or soothe body and mind with sunset meditations, Asana yoga and Pilates.
Exuberant adults meanwhile can live their best lives at Siyam World’s epic beach pool and foam parties, or get wet and wild with exhilarating seabob and banana boat rides, electric jet surfing, flyboarding, snorkeling and diving at the resort’s watersports centre, Shipwrecked. Kids will be in their element with an array of excursions and activities at the Little Explorers Kids Club, for children aged 3 to 11.
Uncompromisingly quirky with a fun-loving attitude, a deep-rooted soul, and a unique approach to everything, Siyam World is one of the largest natural islands in the Maldives to boast a resort and show-stopping residences: a 54-hectare haven blessed with more than four kilometres of white sandy beaches and six kilometres of house reef.
Siyam World, Maldives is located in the popular Noonu Atoll, a mere 40 minutes’ direct seaplane ride from Velana International Airport, and also accessible via a 30-minute domestic flight to Maafaru Airport followed by a 10-minute speedboat trip.
