The Sun Siyam Irufushi Maldives
Laughter fills the air as you revel in the wide-open space. Warm sand tickles underfoot. The sun’s iridescent rays dance on the ocean’s surface. The waves pause for thought. Your silhouette a picture of vitality, as it follows you across the beach.
Across the ocean a young child races across the shoreline. A rainbow-coloured kite trailing behind. The wind picks up. He pauses. The kite caught in the breeze, darting from left to right. Deep purple, lurid greens flicker against a backdrop of white and aquamarine. His eyes tightly focused, his smile a picture of perfect happiness.
His is a very different life to yours – a simple existence, an unfamiliar culture – yet for that brief moment you are brought together through a shared emotion, a shared exhilaration, where time is your own.
The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi unfolds over 52 acres of natural perfection, a world away from the everyday, yet just a 45-minute awe-inspiring seaplane ride from the capital, Malé. Warm crystal-clear waters wait to embrace you. Soft sands call you to kick off your shoes.
Iru Fushi is located in the northernmost reaches of the Maldivian archipelago, at the heart of Noonu Atoll. Noonu is a community of islands, each with its own distinct allure – a hidden cove here, a lush grove of palm trees there, a lagoon seemingly made just for you. Still others are dotted with villages where traditional ways of life are still proudly preserved, waiting to enchant.
We know that you will be eager to start your holiday from the moment you arrive at Malé, which is why we make the journey as smooth as the waters of our lagoon. While waiting for your seaplane, enjoy a refreshing welcome drink at our private seaplane lounge. Then, once your breathtakingly scenic flight comes to an end and you glide gently toward our arrival jetty, you will see your island host waiting with a smile to take you to your own private haven in our little piece of paradise.

Drumbeats reverberate across the starlit sky. The rhythm at once invigorating yet soothing. Dancers move in perfect synchronisation, their bare feet skipping across the white sand. A hand extends, takes your own, and you join – tentatively at first, but later with carefree abandon – in a dance celebrated by generations.
On land or at sea, Iru Fushi and the surrounding Noonu Atoll is a playground for travellers of all ages, interests and desires.

Tennis and badminton courts also dot the island, while table tennis, pool tables and board games await at the island’s recreation centre. Our own karaoke lounge also provides the perfect place for you to let go – in front of a private audience of family or friends.
The silence is profound. Nothing but the calm, rhythmic sound of your own breathing, each exhale leaving a trail of rising bubbles. A moving meditation as you glide through the warm embrace of the waters. Ahead, the walls of the reef tower like a fortress, protecting all the dazzling life and colour darting within.
Waters calm yet riotous with a kaleidoscope of marine life. Fringed by a pristine coral reef built steadily over time and carefully undisturbed, Iru Fushi is a living paradise offering bountiful discoveries in one of the world’s richest diving destinations. Beyond, the reefs of Noonu Atoll offer ever more natural wonders, inviting you to take the plunge.
Whether you’ve dived all over the world or are being fitted for your first mask, our PADI-certified dive centre and multilingual master divers offer a full array of courses, and group or private excursions to a number of sites around the atoll, each with its own unique discoveries. Day or night, open water or sheltered reef, choose your own diving adventure.
Gliding through the waters like a manta, fins propelling you easily towards the reef’s edge. Turning your head this way and that as a glimmer of orange rushes past, corals beneath swaying below in harmony, alive and rich with life.
Surrounded by endless inviting blue, Iru Fushi offers a wealth of ways to enjoy the sea – including some you may have never imagined.
Snorkelling, whether in the house reef or further off on the horizon, provides an exhilarating window into the colourful biodiversity of the Maldives. With calm crystal-clear waters, visibility is guaranteed year-round.
Our fleet of speedboats, catamarans and our own signature dhoni also put some of the atoll’s other island gems within reach. Glide along the water’s surface in luxurious style, sitting back to enjoy the view with a glass of champagne, or in the skipper’s seat after learning to harness the Maldivian winds.
Those in search of hands-on adventure can take advantage of personal instruction in windsurfing or kiteboarding, the smooth waters of our lagoon providing the perfect arena. A variety of motorised water sports also await, providing fun for the whole family – from banana boating to waterskiing or jet ski escapades.

With the area’s own dedicated swimming pool kids can splash the day away, safe in the heartfelt care of our expertly trained Kidz Paradise staff. Parents, on the other hand, will have to go play elsewhere on the island, or beyond. But not to worry – at the end of the day, you can get together and see who had the most fun.
Your eyes gaze over the gracefully curved bow, transfixed by the last rays of sunlight dancing on the tranquil waters. Sea melds with sky, seemingly endless, broken only by the ripples of the dhoni slicing gently through the open sea. Suddenly, you see them. An entire group, gathering off at starboard, their fins seeming to wave. The dance of dolphins at sunset – another memory to treasure, to recount over and over.
The beauty of the Maldives does not end at our shores – Iru Fushi is the perfect gateway to all the natural splendour and cultural enchantment Noonu Atoll has to afford. We invite you to dive in, to float along, to discover and embrace all the beauty of these islands we call home.
The Sun Siyam is delighted to offer a regular programme of excursions and daily discoveries which you can enjoy in solo reflection, as a romantic encounter, or as an adventure for the whole family to enjoy.

The Spa by Thalgo
A pebbled path winds amidst wild tropical blooms and endless shades of green. Splashes of light filter through the palms, dancing on the rippling water of a gentle stream. Luring you, a faint aroma of sandalwood and jasmine, heady with the scent of the earth. Rounding a curve, a sala appears – a haven of tranquillity, yours to revel in.
With the entire island a sanctuary of natural beauty, there is no need to hide away. Instead The Spa by Thalgo at The Sun Siyam Iru Fushi is an open immersion – in organic earth and vibrant sea – the elements from which Ayurveda draws its centuries-old healing power.
At The Spa by Thalgo France we have perfected this ancient holistic tradition, blending its timeless wisdom with contemporary practices found both East and West. Our resident Ayurvedic Doctor guides our guests on their own personalised journeys to wellness both during their stay and beyond. Meanwhile, expert practitioners – in traditional massage, authentic Maldivian-inspired rituals and world-renowned wellness practices – combine finely honed knowledge with a naturally healing touch.
All this in a setting that mirrors the natural splendour of the island.
Spa Treatment & Facilities
Drawing inspiration from the dance of the gentle tides, everything seems to flow. Like the undulating ocean waves and the rustle of the palm fronds, each stroke of expert hands lulls you into bliss. Feeling your body’s clock start to synchronise with the island’s natural rhythm. Trusting, connecting, healing, being. Seeking indulgence, finding inner peace.
Wood, stone, water and light – all the fundamental elements of the earth – come together in perfect harmony in the design of The Spa’s 20 treatment rooms. Hydrotherapy pools, steam rooms and saunas are offered to complement your treatments. Meanwhile, dedicated relaxation areas are designed as natural sanctuaries, allowing you to take a moment before emerging renewed.
Our signature journeys invite you to move at your own pace through rituals of relaxation, of discovery, holistic renewal, or simply island-inspired indulgence. For even more tailored treatments, we invite you to book a consultation with our resident Ayurvedic Doctor who can provide an introduction to this ancient tradition, as well as prescribe the ideal therapies based on your personal dosha, or unique mind and body type.
