I was truly spellbound by Soneva Fushi... When our wonderful Mr. Friday welcomed us at the resort and took our shoes away, an unforgettable journey in tune with nature began.. I loved watching the sunrise over the sea every morning from our gorgeous Villa 2.. Breakfasts at Mihiree Mitha were a delight, with large spreads of fresh food and amazing... More

We quite literally cannot say enough about how magical it is at Soneva Fushi. One of the first things the resort staff does the minute you get on the transportation boat is take your shoes, and you spend the rest of your time on the island walking (and biking) in bare feet. The sand is so soft and the bicycle... More

Barefoot and beautiful! Our 3-bedroom villa had a private gym and pool, and glorious views over the Indian Ocean. Food is delicious--and we especially loved the limitless homemade ice cream and chocolate. Great for couples and families alike. Amazing kids club too!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
When Eva and Sonu Shivdasani built Soneva Fushi as well as their home on the deserted island of Kunfunadhoo in the Maldives in 1995 they had no idea that their intensely personal vision of a locally crafted villa and environmentally responsible lifestyle would form the basis of a successful collection of world-class hotels, resorts and spas. But that's exactly what happened. Soneva Fushi was the first 'castaway' resort in the Maldives, pioneering a trend for back-to-nature luxury holidays. It established a blueprint for a highly acclaimed international business, followed by spectacular Soneva Kiri on the unspoilt Thai island of Koh Kood in 2009. The success of the Soneva brand also paved the way for Six Senses Resorts and Spas with award-winning properties in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Under Eva's and Sonu's direction the Six Senses brand gained a global following before being sold in 2012. Today the Sonevas have many imitators, but no equals. Each Soneva - and a yachting experience, Soneva in Aqua - impresses on a wide range of levels. Breathtaking 'remote but accessible' natural locations, effortlessly chic accommodation, incredible food, truly memorable activities, an inspiring ethos of sustainability and service that is uncannily intuitive. The resort that set the tone and the standards for every subsequent resort. A jewel of an island - large by Maldives standards - with perfect beaches, a vibrant reef encircling the island, a colony of nesting turtles and its very own world class observatory. Located in the Baa Atoll, Maldives' only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi is blessed with extensive coral reefs and significant biodiversity including large concentrations of whale sharks, manta rays and marine turtles. The resort is perfect for romantic couple getaways, or family holidays as it provides unique experiences and activities for all, from diving and snorkelling with the marine biologist, to sandbank dinners and a children's den (playground). ... more   less
