This is our first visit to Maldives. Sun Island Resort stands for its kind-hearted staff, perfect tropical nature, good and healthy food and unforgettable sunsets. The evening animation is beyond any words - the unstoppable energy and nice smile of Snoop connected with DJ Belz’s fantastic music will make you come back here once more))) Snoop’s fire show is something you should not miss while you are here. The first and the most pleasant thing that attracted me is the kind hearted ness of the people working here, like Hafsa at the reception, Busara at the Water Sports center and Brighton serving the best Indian soups I had ever tasted. He is the cutest and kindest man in this beautiful island with a childish smile always ready to please the tourists))) Thank you, Sun Island))) Wish we had a chance to come here again❤️
