Posted on: February 25th, 2016 by Butler Academy 18 Comments


The South African Butler Academy is priviledged to conduct Level – 3 Butler Training at the Sun Siyam Iru Fushi Maldives. This is our 3rd training session in 2 years at Iru Fushi.

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.


We belive in real up to date training references. We have asked our students to comment on the training they have received, please enjoy the comments below.
