Hello All,

I hope you all liked my Travellogue part-1. In this part-2, I will describe the resort and its facilities.

On reaching the resort after steamer ride, I was awestruck by its beauty. Sun island resort is largest in terms of land area in entire Maldives. Resort is well decorated and maintained neat and clean all the time.The resort is connected to the steamer jetty through wooden bridge over Indian ocean. The scenery is simply out of this world.

When we arrived at the main lobby, the resort staff welcomed us with fresh fruit drinks and flower garland. Staff is nice and polite. They assign separate person for each guest to help them in checking in for stay.Staff member will give you a form to fill in which you have to mention all your details along with Passport details. They also provide you full information on facilities of the resort and other complimentary facilities which you are entitled during your stay. I clicked below hotel lobby picture while I was filling out my form for the stay.

Before you do any booking for Maldives, you have to decide what kind of stay you would prefer. Most of the resorts in Maldives offer two main kind of stay and these are Water Villas (which are hut shaped structures standing in the ocean) or The Sea Beach villas (which are on the sea beach).Water Villas are more costly than sea beach villas.The price of one night stay in Water Villa is almost double than that of sea beach villas. Also, water villas are luxurious and over booked most of the time. You have to book them well in advance i.e much before you start your travel for Maldives.Staying in water Villas also needs your research as which direction of its balcony will be best suited for your stay. In almost all the resorts of Maldives, the water Villas will either be east facing to give you sun rise views or west facing so as to give you sun set views.

I chose sun set water villa as I have much more liking for setting sun and peaceful evenings.Below are few pictures of my water villa. Trust me, they are super luxurious from inside.Each water villas is fully air conditioned with large TV, coffee maker, all wooden furniture and wodden floors.Each water villa also has balcony and stairs going directly into the Indian Ocean.

All the water villas of resort were full and I was very lucky to get it before my travel. Trust me, each minute spent in the water villa is worth the cost.You will never want to leave your water villa once you see it from inside and the surroundings. I clicked below pictures after my check in to the resort.

The whole set up of water villas is with respect to direction of sun. The villas on left side in below picture are sun rise water villas which allow you to have a look at sun rise from windows and balcony of your villa. The water villas on right side in below picture are sun set water villas which allow you to watch setting sun from your villa.
