We split our stay between Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani and we loved comparing the two. We'd happily return to both! As I described in my Soneva Jani review, Soneva currently has COVID protocols that made us feel super safe, given all guests had to pass a double PCR testing protocol in order to allow guests to roam the property mask-free. It was a true vacation from the world and was a special thing to experience after a year of pandemic anxiety. One thing I want to make clear about how special Soneva Fushi is upfront is it's not something you're necessarily going to understand or believe from a review or extensive research ahead of time. It truly is a feeling of being there - there's almost a magic in the air that strips you of anxieties and makes you feel instantly part of a community of fellow vacationers. And a community it is - I was surprised by how open people were to chatting if you happened to share an activity with them or pass by them in the ice cream or chocolate rooms. I learned through through these conversations that many guests are repeat guests; one person we talked to was there on his 12th trip! Twelve! You know there's something special when that many people are making this concerted of an effort to come to a luxury resort in the middle of the Indian Ocean. We split our time between a beach villa and one of the new overwater villas. If you are booking a beach villa and want to prioritize relaxation over activity, book the sunrise side as you'll be looking out onto open ocean. The sunset side is better for active snorkeling which we loved (we were sunset side), but you'll be facing another island so that's something to keep in mind!). The overwater villas kind of straddle the sunrise to sunset line of division which meant our overwater villa, #81, saw beautiful sunrises and sunsets which was a first for me in the Maldives (normally you have to pick a side!). The overwater villas, opened recently in September, are an absolute joy and a must-book experience. I'd highly recommend splitting your stay so you can get a taste of both, as we loved our experience both on land and over water. Our Barefoot Butler, Umar, was great and incredible to have on call, helping us with a variety of requests, including getting us onto the Soneva Fushi sandbank on short notice which was such a highlight of our trip. We'd absolutely return (like so many others!) and we'd love to make this a familiar destination of ours for years to come!

Soneva Fushi offers a dream getaway in every sense of the word. “No shoes, no news” is the golden rule at this Robinson Crusoe-inspired luxury resort. After a tough year, Soneva Fushi’s back-to-nature policy was the perfect escape from reality. There is, in fact, a large flat screen TV in every villa, but it’s artfully hidden away. I have to say, watching TV didn’t appeal to me at all because I was too busy having fun in paradise but I did love the way the screen rose smoothly out of a trunk, James Bond style. When you arrive at Soneva Fushi, you get to participate in a special ceremony where you give up your shoes, marking the transition into island life. Soneva Fushi absolutely nails the concept of rustic luxury. There are no straight lines anywhere; even the cutlery is irregular. Nothing at Soneva feels artificial or manufactured. The resort blends in perfectly with the natural environment. Every last detail is perfect, but in a way that feels organic rather than meticulously planned. We loved kicking back and experiencing what life would be like as (very glamorous) castaways. Villas: We spent our first few nights in an overwater villa before moving to a beach villa because we wanted to experience both styles. Personally, I preferred the overwater villa because it’s the kind of accommodation that has become synonyms with Maldives luxury travel. The enormous overwater villas are actually a new addition to Soneva Fushi. What’s cool about them - aside from the mind-blowing amount of space you have available - is that there’s a slide from the deck right down into the ocean. But beware… only use it at high tide! I learned that the hard way. Perhaps my favorite thing about the overwater villas, though, was the opening roof. As I say, I was totally in love with the overwater villas but my companions actually preferred the beach villa! The design truly was stunning and it felt as though the villa was perfectly integrated with the natural surroundings. Sustainability: The sustainability program at Soneva Fushi blew me away and it was honestly one of my favorite things about our stay. I learned so much. The island is powered entirely through solar energy and all the herbs and vegetables you eat are grown in the garden, but conscious living here extends way beyond that. I took a tour of their eco centre and I was inspired not only by the lengths the resort goes to operate sustainably but also the genuine passion of the staff. Soneva Fushi is truly the perfect choice for the eco-conscious traveler. The resort even offsets the carbon footprint from each guest’s flight, so this truly is a guilt-free vacation. Experiences: Snorkeling with manta rays was one of the standout experiences from our trip to the Maldives. The creatures were just so elegant; they danced together as one. One manta came so close to me that I could almost touch it. It was a sublime experience I’ll never, ever forget. We also went dolphin spotting at sunset and were fortunate enough to spot some racing through the sea as we sipped champagne and munched on canapes. Soneva Fushi also offers an eco-friendly surfing program, which is actually the first 100% sustainable program of its kind in the world. There’s no need to bring your surfing gear, as they’ll provide everything for you. Food and drink: The food at Soneva Fushi was out of this world. I mean, there were designated cheese and chocolate rooms. There was so much fresh Asian cuisine on offer. I was delighted that there was so much Indonesian food available, from spicy rendang curry to nasi goreng. Covid safety: We were required to take a PCR test on arrival at Soneva Fushi and then self-isolate in our villa until the results came back. I was more than happy to do this - the villa was so large that it pretty much took a day to explore anyway! I think it was 20 hours between the test and our results, so we had time to rest, relax, order room service and splash around in our spacious private pool. No hardship at all!

It brings us immense joy to read about your delightful experience with the breath-taking natural surroundings, enticing culinary offerings, remarkable service standards and our warm hospitality at Soneva Fushi. Our hosts are deeply humbled by your generous commentary on their efforts. The safety and security of both our guests and hosts is a priority at Soneva and the past year have given us the opportunity to plan and implement even more meticulous measures, in keeping with the highest international standards. Thank you for your cooperation and appreciating our efforts in this direction. Sustainability is at the very core of our existence and each area of the resort and our hosts are committed to treading lightly on our planet.

Our newest addition of water retreats has also added to our Sustainability goals and we are happy to receive such encouraging feedback from our guests. The sliding roof happens to be my most favourite too. It is a pleasure to read that you enjoyed the company of the manta rays, who we lovingly call "The Gentle Giants". The dolphins are an absolute pleasure to view as well. Thank you once again for your abundant praise. We cannot wait to welcome you back very soon for another exciting vacation.

I have dreamed of staying at Soneva for years, and finally we were able to visit. We had a 2 bed waterslide reserve for the special occasion of our daughters 6th birthday. They look amazing online- and we were not disappointed on the unveil from Lillian our wonderful butler when we entered. Retractable roof above the bed, the slide, the kitchen stocked with all sorts of goodies....this is intelligent luxury in a style that is uniquely Soneva. This is a once in a lifetime experience....or if you can afford it, you will be hooked to return. Yes, it is not a cheap place to stay....but the little details- from the villa actually being set up as per your pre-stay requests (blackboard was in the room, which our daughters used to make a birthday message for our youngest) to the bergamot scent floating in the bedroom....everything is seamless and perfect, along with the service of a 400 strong staff for around 87 villas. Our favourite lunch was our last afternoon at Out of the Blue. Fresh sashimi, using the restaurant waterslide before and after lunch...sitting with our kids and having the space and time to enjoy and connect with each other. Soneva is an experience that will leave you with a buzz for ages, I can't wait to put the photos we have taken up around our house back in the UK to remind us of our trip. Thank you to Lillian, Magic at breakfast, the head chef who presented everything so beautifully, F&B manager, and all staff. Amazing time.

Can't express our love more for this place. My family loved everything from the moment we arrived. We have 3 young kids who say this is their favorite place in the world. The food is the greatest we've had. They have a whole room dedicated to fresh salads and veggies, as well as one just for dessert. balance ;) Our 5 year old learned to ride a bike and we will never forget! We also very much appreciate the attention to waste, conservation and community involvement. We've visited twice and both times were pretty unlucky with weather, but that didn't bother us. We'll be back again soon. Most definitely top 3 family destinations in the whole world!
