Sun Siyam Iru Veli Marks 3rd Anniversary with an Evening of Festivities

To celebrate the past three years of exciting adventures and frolicking on the sandy shores of Sun Siyam Iru Veli, the luxury island retreat has elevated their signature par-for-the-course Gala Night to the next level, on the evening of 15th December.

To make the unique occasion one to remember, they closed their à la carte outlets and hosted a series of events starting with a special evening management cocktail at Fresh Water, an exceptional pool bar where guests were greeted with a rose petal entrance. Against the backdrop of colorful light decorations, complimentary champagne cocktails, white and red wine sangria, cocktails, mocktails and other beverages were served. Aside from the standard fare, a noteworthy selection of hot and cold canapés were served as traditional dancers swayed to live boduberu drums.


The next event was a special dinner buffet at Aqua Orange, the lagoon side restaurant where guests were offered welcome drinks upon arrival along with a marvelous selection of sweets. A special tea station was set up at Aqua beach for those who don’t imbibe, and free henna hand art was offered to restless kids during the extravagant dinner, where an exceptional curation and combination of culinary delights from all over the world were presented to guests as they relaxed near the beach.

For the finale, guests were welcomed to Chemistry, a beachside bar where guests were treated to welcome drinks and a local delicacy; fruit skewers. Champagne, sparkling wine, cocktails and mocktails flowed freely as guests grooved and danced to the choice selections of the live DJ, before the official Sun Siyam Iru Veli birthday cake was cut. To top it off and seal the deal, a  special raffle was held afterwards for all attending guests where they had the opportunity to win prizes including wine, champagne, spa sessions and more.

Just a 40-minute seaplane ride away from Malé Airport, the tranquil five-star island retreat of Iru Veli lies in the Dhaalu Atoll, undoubtedly one of the most naturally beautiful atolls in the Maldives. The 125  boutique all-suites with private pool, scattered across the island and over the lagoon all feature luxurious interiors and terraces that lead directly into the warm, inviting waters of the lagoon or onto the breath-taking beaches.
