My wife and I spent a week at Soneva Fushi and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our Crusoe Villa plus pool was fantastic, the outdoor showers an experience. The fact that they came back every night and lit the pool up with candles was a really nice touch. The food is excellent, we recommend the Japanese restaurant By the Beach, although the... More

I haven't put reviews on tripadvisor in the past but Soneva Fushi is such an exceptional resort, that I had to do it! For our first Maldivian adventure we screened many resorts based on several criteria: - Being afraid that our family of five might get bored on a claustrophobic small island, we were looking for one of the larger...

Dear Guest, No need for a thank you...It is our pleasure! 'Magic' is a word often used but obviously we agree with, not just because we work/live/play at Soneva Fushi, but because we also experience the same on a daily basis. It's not work... it's a lifestyle as another guest quite recently suggested. We love to try to make small... More

I don't want to repeat what everybody else has said but this is without question our favourite place to go on holiday to. I would like to emphasise that how good the diving is there. Fantastic fish life and admittedly we were a bit lucky but the manta season produced some unforgettable experiences. I have dived quite a bit but... More

Dear Mr F, Thank you so much for the exceptional comments, both for the resort and in particular the Soleni Dive Centre. Sometimes we also should mention that guests also come to Soneva Fushi for the wonderful 'Active Sports' and not just the 'Chill Out' atmosphere we are also famous for. Soleni has actually been our partner here on the... More

After emailing before travel to ask for a quite room away from the main area, we ended up at the villa next to the water sports centre (No.29). We where not so happy about this, but after the 1st night they where able to move us. We moved to Villa 40 which didn't have the pool we booked, but who... More

The entire island is amazing. Filled with dense vegetation and bicycle paths, it is easy to forget that you are in the Maldives and not a tropical forest. The bikes even had foot soles, so as to bike barefoot. This was the ultimate "barefoot luxury". The chef used to run a Michelin star restaurant in London. Enough said. We stayed... More

If there was one problem with our trip to Soneva Fushi, it was that 5 days was not nearly enough. We thought we would run out of things to do and get bored, but it's not really about how much you can pack into a day. In truth, it takes a while to fully forget your normal active mentality, absorb... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your lovely comments and I absolutely agree, five days is not enough at Soneva Fushi! However, you seem to have enjoyed many of the activities we arrange for you (should you choose) and am delighted that you still found some time for yourself.

When I researched a dive trip to the Maldives it struck me that the average review of Soneva Fushi was about three times longer than the usual write-up. Everyone who's been there seemed a bit "gushy". Well having just returned from a ten day stay I now know why - it really is a very special place. The service and... More

Top-notch service and close attention to every detail. The Robinson Crusoe decor is adhered to down to minor items like notepad paper. The pleasure of walking around barefoot was a discovery for us, and is completely safe (but watch out for the stinging caterpillars hanging from some trees). The fauna, by the way, is diverse and very amusing: we could... More
