Don't go to Vilu if you are looking for a good disco or a a few good bars. DO GO to Vilu if you want to be waited on hand and foot by extremely friendly staff, eat fantastic international food, snorkel on a nice reef with lots of different fish and basically just want to work on your tan. The...

Just back from our two week honeymoon at Vilu Reef resort; my third trip to the Maldives, but my first at this resort. As a person who is totally in love with this part of our planet, there was no doubt where we would be going for our honeymoon, the question was, which island this time? It's a difficult call...

When we arrived by seaplane I could not believe that we are so lucky to have choosen this island - just perfect!!! And we know many places around the world (more than 150 countries and territories). In my opinion it is difficult to make the right choice in the Maldives with all that options and price ranges. And I did...

We spent 2 weeks in March 2010 at Vilu Reef, we stayed in a Jacuzzi water villa (booked from the UK). This hotel is a 4* hotel and relies heavily on the natural beauty of the island, if you have been to 5* spa resorts in the Indian Ocean which cost a similar price, do not expect the same here...

Honestly, I am wondering how come that this hotel could give so positive expercience for some travellers, and for us why not..

We have just returned from the amazing holiday in Maldives. This was our second time at the Maldives, however first time in this hotel and first time three of us - we were staying with our little 1 year old daughter. From the beginning our stay was more than pleasant. On arrival we were met by the sound of drums...

The best vacation I've ever went too. I'm so wanting to go back every 6 months. I simply can't stop thinking about it. The activities were great and the service was awsome. I was swimming in the pool every single day and enjoyed every moment of it. You just have to go over there! You would ever want to leave...

Travelled to the Vilu Reef in June 2008 for our Honeymoon. We decided to book the beach villa's as it was our first time to a destination like this and I wasn't sure if I would like to be over the water but I knew I did not want to stay in the garden villa's. The staff at this hotel...

Vilu Reef is not somewhere that we would go back to and we are surprised that it has received such good feedback. It is expensive and unfortunately we came back feeling that we had been ripped off for the price we were charged given the resort and our experience. The main complaint is with the actual island. It is presented...

a pretty little Island, a relaxing place but spoilt by the attitude of the staff and especially the hotel manager. We stayed here for two weeks from January 6th 2010. Sea palne transfer was ok but not as efficient as it could be. If you are lucky, the next available flight is within the hour but more likely a 1-2...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A sun-kissed sanctuary, our beautiful Paradise is covered by a lush layer of coconut palms and scented by the sweet fragrance of frangipanis and tropical flowers. Ringed by pristine coral reefs and clear turquoise waters, Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a haven of peace, home to bright blooms and friendly fauna, with hermit crabs, grey herons and multi-colored geckoes among our exotic inhabitants. This delicate ecology offers quiet moments with nature, the opportunity to immerse in delicious serenity. Only 145 kilometers south of capital Malé, we're just a 35-minute seaplane ride from the international airport - a short but spectacularly scenic ride. ... more   less
