Environment and wellness

Sun Siyam Vilu Reef puts the focus on its environment and wellness.

Sun Siyam Vilu Reef focused on the island environment and wellness, celebrating global environment day and ocean day with meaningful activities.

Guests and staff gathered together to plant trees sourced from a nearby farming island, in four areas of the resort's island home to mark the globally observed Environment Day.

Located in South Nilandhe Atoll, Sun Siyam Vilu Reef is just one of the five-star resort of the multi-award winning hospitality group Sun Siyam Resorts.

Meanwhile, celebrations for World Ocean Day kicked off with staff informing guests about the importance of restoring marine ecosystems, especially for countries like Maldives, which bear coral reefs as their natural protection.

Guests were excited for coral planting and began with a dip in the water to collect dead corals— which were then, stringed on to a tall frame. Once the structures were ready to be submerged, guests dived to plant them at the resort's house reef.

At Sun Siyam Vilu Reef, however, environmental efforts are not just for celebrations but part of an everyday effort to conserve their island home and facilitate a better world. This is evident as you snorkel spotting some of the best coral reefs in Maldives and also a thriving coral garden resulting from coral planting efforts throughout the past five years.

With its cosy Maldivian vibes evoking blissful contentment, Vilu Reef is also just as idyllic for wellness. On the morning of global Wellness Day, guests geared up for a 2km run around the island and in the spirit of wellness, all participants also received a complimentary 10-minute head and shoulder massage from the spa. Celebrations continued with cheerful dances to the exhilarating rhythms of Zumba, overlooking spectacular hues of the sunset.

The resort is now gearing up for International Yoga Day with a Sunset Yoga session on June 21 st 2021 .

Sun Siyam Vilu Reef boasts indulgent villas and suites across a long strip of white sand beaches on a vast emerald lagoon, offering soothing spa treatments, adventurous island hopping day trips and uniquely private cinemas under the stars, while some of the best coral reef leave you in complete awe.
