Newest block to Sun Siyam resort chain set for late 2018 opening

Hotelier magnate Ahmed Siyam's Sun Travels is set to add another tourist outlet to its chain, set for a late 2018 opening.

Developed at Dhaal atoll Aluvifushi, the newest addition to Sun Travel resort chain is expected to open for travelers in October.

The high-end luxury outlet boasts a total of 125 rooms, and the slip is situated 40 minutes by a seaplane trip from Velana International Airport (VIA).

The 'Sun Aqua Iru-Veli' resort promises luxury over-water and beach villas with exclusive suites for private getaways.

The newest addition to the successful resort chain would undoubtedly be included under the state government's initiative of opening more than 50 resorts during President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom's first term.
