According to the Executive Director at Sun Siyam Resorts, Zuleykha Manik (Zuley), Iru Veli ensures the utmost privacy for its guests. In order to guarantee this, back of the house operations and accommodation for team members will be arranged on a separate island located nearby.

The resort features an infinity pool, a fully equipped recreation center, a variety of activities and water sports such as jet ski, windsurfing, fun rides, catamaran sailing etc.

Sun Aqua Spa, with its six treatment pavilions and hydrotherapy area, is perched over the lagoon as an over-water spa offering a range of treatments combining western and eastern philosophies.

The resort also has three restaurants and two bars which offer both local and world-class international cuisine. While one is a grill restaurant serving fresh seafood, another is an over-water restaurant offering Italian cuisine.

As an added flavour, Middle Eastern guests will be happy to learn that the Sun Aqua Signature, the premium all-inclusive plan, includes one daily shisha per couple at the Shisha Lounge free of charge.

The Sun Aqua Iru Veli will be the fifth resort by Sun Siyam Resorts and its third property under the brand Sun Aqua.
