Our last visit to Soneva Fushi was 15 years ago in 2007. The island has become more developed over that time but still manages to combine the natural beauty of the island with a luxury experience. We love the no shoes concept that helps you to relax fully. Micky our Barefoot Guardian took excellent care of us during our stay, making suggestions and was always available to assist or arrange things or take care of any minor problems. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming in their own personal way, whilst maintaining a high standard of service throughout our stay. The range and quality of food offered is fantastic, we particularly enjoyed Fresh in the Garden with an opportuinity to tour the gardens in advance of dining. The food feels healthy and tastes delicious, though we also sought out So Cool the complimentray ice cream bar on several occasions. Unfortunately the Den (the kids club area) was closed for maintenance works during our visit, something we had been warned about in advance. Despite this, the kids club team still hosted activities in one of the villas. Our nine year old son still wanted to visit everyday and loved the time he spent there and the activities arranged. After an afternoon talk about marine life followed by guided snorkelling direct from the Out of the Sea restaurant, he was keen to recount several things he'd learnt about the fish he'd seen. A highlight for us was kayaking out over the reef from the beach and seeing turtles and reef sharks. We also had a go at paddle boarding, aided by the excellent head of the water sports team. Overall we had a wonderful stay and will certainly not be waiting 15 years to return again. …
If you want to experience ultimate luxury which is also intimate, sustainable and cares as deeply for the planet's well-being as yours, look no further than Soneva Fushi. It is like a little piece of paradise. The waters are all shades of blue-green imaginable, the reefs are swarming with colourful fish, the beaches are soft and white, the island is rich and verdant, the villas are beautiful and very comfortable, outdoor activities are plentiful and well thought out, the food is diverse and absolutely delicious, the hospitality is impeccable and unobtrusive, and the resort with its focus on slow, barefoot living provides everything that you can ask for in a dream holiday. During our incredible five days, everyone at the resort seemed to be going out of their way to make our stay as enriching and as comfortable as possible. In this regard, I will be amiss if I do not mention two people in particular. Our 'barefoot butler', or our caretaker in all senses of the word, Sae. She is warm, resourceful, and she anticipated our needs almost before we could realise them ourselves! The other person who added immensely to my experience of Soneva was Kithay, the snorkelling expert at the resort. He made sure that everyone was comfortable and safe. He definitely made me feel safe. I would never have been able to venture so far into the reefs, and seen the most incredible variety of marine life, had it not been for Kithay's detailed instructions and reassuring presence. He is a gem of an instructor and expert. The holiday was a treat to all our senses - physical, emotional, as well as spiritual. Highly recommended if you are looking for a well thought out, warm, top of the line luxury holiday to rejuvenate you. V Singh-Lal…
Three nights is definitely not enough. I look forward to coming back and experiencing everything the resort has to offer. From its sustainability and community initiatives to the once-in-a-lifetime snorkelling with manta rays and sunset dolphin cruise. And of course, the incredible villas that are truly a private hideaway that one can retreat to unwind and relax. Each Host at Soneva Fushi touched my heart in their own way and I will never forget my time spent here.
Sovena Fushi is an absolute haven for families. If you’re looking to travel with a group that is made up of various age groups, this is where you should bring them to! From interactive children club like The Den, to a holistic relaxing experience at their wellness and spa, each of us could find an activity to rejuvenate our spirit despite our age differences. Easy access to the beaches was also a dream to an island girl like myself. Last but not least, the resort also offers a variety of exercising facilities - such as tennis and the gym - ideal for some who prefer engaging in other activities aside from being at the beach all day.
We had a excellent stay at Soneva Fushi. Everything from beginning to end was very well taken care of. The island is really stunning and has a laid back vibe, with perfect service, food and accommodations.
We stayed at Soneva Fushi for maybe the 11th or 12th time now and we really loved it again. The food, the facilities are excellent and after renovations done over the last years in an excellent state. The team of hosts are really great and we got to know many of them over the years and it is always a great feeling to return.
An incredible 11 days in paradise and we can't thank everyone at Soneva Fushi enough for making our time on this incredible island so special. A big mention to Ali for taking such good care of us, and always making sure we had everything we needed. This is a bit of an understatement to be honest, as we probably came across as the 'guests from hell' the first few days and requested to move rooms, but Ali and the management at Soneva were fantastic and found us a villa we fell in love with! My wife and I loved snorkelling everyday with our 2 sons, and packed in as much as we could (including glass blowing, dolphin cruise, desert island, spa, kids club, boat trips etc), but thankfully we still have lots of new things to try for our next visit! All the restaurants are incredible and I'm not sure there are too many better places in the world to watch a sunset than at 'Out of the Blue'! Thank you also to Pjey and Manjit for making us feel so welcome. Soneva Fushi is a very special place and we can't wait to come back again soon.…
Everyone seemed to know our names,smiles and greetings wherever we went. Perfect Resort for luxury five star. We have met many incredible team members here including Pjey,he is very cool guy,thank you for the time talking with us. But this trip could not be the best without Aiy-her enthusiasm and willingly to assist in all the requests. Hope to return to Soneva Fushi soon.Thank you again to make us feel like a HOME.
Thank you to all hosts at Soneva Fushi for making our 17 night stay to a visit in Paradise. We got a warm welcome and got upgraded to a bigger villa. It was absolutely beautiful with nice sittingareas outside and inside. The snorkling was amazing just outside the villa and we got to se a lot of fish, turtels and even a manta ray. The food was great with chefs from all around the world. Expensive but perfect. We will be back.
It is there third time I come back to Soneva Fushi and every time is a new discover. The villas are fabulous, you can move in the island with your personal bike. The service is the best that you can find in the world, i have never been treated in such warmth. The food was the best we have had at any 5* resort we have been to.We have a 8 year old and a 9 year old and they both absolutely loved the holiday as we did. We want absolutely come back as soon as possible! WE LOVE SONEVA
