The company didn’t open its first resort until 1998 when Sun Siyam Vilu Reef came into existence. The resort was highly successful right away and it led the company to decide it was time to expand. 

In the year 2002, Maldives welcomed Sun Siyam Olhuveli. Olhuveli is not like any other hotel you might have stayed at. It is a whole island of joy surrounded by lively waters and tropical fauna & flora where you feel closer to mother nature than ever.
