Third year in a row at Soneva Fushi and management continues to get the whole experience from start to finish 100% spot on.

Dear Guest, I have a smile on my face as i type this response to your wonderful review.

I revisited Soneva Fushi again after a previous visit some 15 years ago. At the time it was refreshing; a sort of bohemian chic as exemplified by the bare-foot-policy and bicycles. By now many resorts have copied this and Soneva Fushi seems to have felt compelled to go even further up-market. This results in things like a beach-side patisserie you... More

We honeymooned at Soneva Fushi for ten days in January - it is difficult to write a review about a place when you know there aren't enough superlatives in the English language (or any other language, for that matter) to do it justice. From the moment we were met at Malé airport, this was just the most wonderful experience. The... More

The transfer to the seaplane at Male airport could not have been better handled, we had already taken our shoe off as this was not our first visit, and were thoroughly enjoying ourselves even before the seaplane touched down at Soneva Fushi International Airport, but it just got better and better, and being met off the seaplane by Reena, our...

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...

'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.

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.

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
