Hotel Review - Sun Island Resort and Spa - Water Bungalow (Part 2)


Did I mention that this is a 5 star resort? I think it should rate as 4 star. The beach rooms does not look like a 5 star. It was quite simple, nothing grand but one always get what you paid for. I wasn't asking for anything more but all I am saying is, It's no 5 star standards. 


The bungalows are like some signature Maldivian resorts. There's this wooden passage over a fancy turquoise clear waters. It's been an awe-inspiring view with the light colored corals underneath. Not just the corals, we saw fishes everywhere.


This is what's inside the bungalows. 31.62 sq.m. Double bed. The numbers are quite smaller than it looks. The room is spacious and the bed is comfy. No bed photo since I did not get a chance to go inside the room first.

Photo below is the porch where you can go sunbathing. The other side has another jacuzzi but the room in the middle of 2 bungalows were inaccessible. We didn't ask if we're supposed to have access since the open sea was more than enough to dive in for relaxation, not to mention I am not a fan of bath tubs and the likes.


The water bungalow is a different story from the Standard beach bungalows, would probably live to its 5 star rating (for me). Although the freebies also went missing. The free vanity kits was nowhere to be seen. The tub was fancy as well as the whole bathroom.



This room enables you to step into the waters from the stairs of your own bungalow porch. It's quite lovely when the sun isn't scorching hot but if it's me, I would dive in nevertheless!


Speaking, that was me! I spent hours snorkeling here and I spent quality time with the white fishes in sparkling blue and silver stripes. The water goes deeper as you go near the middle. I can still imagine the feeling when those large fishes swam by. My eyes popped in joy and I can't believe the short distance where I can see them. I often felt their body bumped slightly on my feet.

Thai Restaurant.

Too bad we didn't make it to the shark feeding! We were too busy roaming at the other side of the island. Good thing, we were still able to catch some baby sharks when we arrived at night time. I've seen people on video petting sharks and even Nyssa (Arrow) touched stingrays in the Bahamas. I thought maybe someday, I will touch and pet a shark. Someday.

ridiculously awesome view eh?
