Six Senses Sonevafushi is the most stunning in barefoot Luxury with the most elegant and close to nature outstanding 3 Bedroom Private Pool Villas.

The moment you enter their speed boat,They give ask you to take off your Shoes/Sandals and pack them for you in a carry bag,so as to give u a feel of nature and getting as close as possible to it.

they have the most widespread Menu for any meal during the day and Jawdropping Desert Room and Chocolate Room ! the taste is very organic and very natural and is something not to be missed.

The Observatory for Star Gazing at Night,The Open Air Theater for Movie screening right next to the beach,The Sand Bank very close to the resort and the most amazing Sit out bar with Hammocks over water are simply simply stunning and out of this world.
The most amazingly equipped villas with Bose Music Systems all around are very well placed and a treat !

The open air Jungle Shower,The private Swimming Pool , The mini water fall on the walls of the open air Bathroom is simply stunning.

The villas are also equipped with Pvt Steam room and a pvt Gym.

The Six Senses spa has some of the most brilliant treatments and the most well trained staff to take care of you.!

Mr Friday was a very unique feature of the Resort who was always available on call and ready at your service.

It is a hideout place for world class celebs and it is simply outstanding.

If u have the money,this is one place which should be on your Must do list

Choosing a honeymoon destination is very tricky. Add on the complexity of choosing to go to the Maldives and you're faced with the dreaded decision: which Island should we go to?!

It was a recommendation through a friend who once worked at Quintessential, a luxury service provider. We were definitely not disappointed. We arrived to the warmest welcome and to the highest level of personal service. What I loved most about the resort was that it was just so naturally beautiful with 70% of the island covered by rainforest, and of course the views from our villa was the sand and sea; which actually is on your doorstep. When you think of luxury it might be the surroundings, or the materials, or the service. With soneva fushi the luxury comes with how the island makes you feel; complete happiness and an overwhelming sense of privilege to have encountered such an experience. From the food to the snorkelling, to the ample choice in things to do, every moment was encapsulated with a smile.

This is an island for those who want variety and something different every day. From the spa to the gym, the multiple restaurants and places to have a cocktail, you will never feel bored. It's a large island but it never felt like you were holidaying with other people. That's the secret to Soneva Fushi. The staff were just incredibly attentive; really hardworking, always customer focused and it was a pleasure to talk with them.

The food and drink was just incredible- with cuisine that challenges the Michelin star it's quite astounding how delicious and fresh everything tastes. Not to mention the 80 different flavours of home made ice cream and sorbet. This is not a place to 'eat well' for the waist line, but it definitely is about eating well for the heart and soul. Although of course you can eat as healthily as you would like; but the sheer volume of delicious cuisines throughout the day made all mealtimes a celebration! Highly recommend a private dinner in the cheese and wine deli room as well as joining the full moon dinner party on the Sandbank (yes this is not on the island... You take a five minute speed boat ride! Stunning!). You can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.

I will always remember the beautiful island of Soneva Fushi, where my heart was full of happiness. Special mention to our Friday, Fatti, who dealt with all our special requests with a smile.

I couldn't recommend this island enough- it is the only island to consider! You will not regret it!

Love Mr and Mrs Hill

Room Tip: We had a basic Crusoe villa but there was nothing basic about it! Absolutely beautiful and very large.

We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day trip to Soneva Fushi. This was our 8th visit to the Maldives but our 1st to Soneva & it did not disappoint. On arrival we were upgraded to the stunning villa number 1 - which was truly fantastic & very much appreciated . Words cannot describe how beautiful this property is & dolphin beach right outside the door is perhaps the best stretch of beach on the island.
The dining options are plentiful with different options every night: to name just a few & to pick a favorite would be difficult but do not miss the dinner on dolphin beach with 2 of the best singers that we have ever heard in the Maldives. The sandbank trip & truffle dinner in fresh in the garden were also amazing. We also had the pleasure of a wine cellar dinner with excellent wines & great food. The sommelier was first class, knowledgeable, friendly & recommended some great wines - it is hard to believe that he is still in training & is defiantly an asset to Soneva.
This brings me on to the staff in general who were all wonderful - Didi at breakfast & the lovely lady who brought the delicious shooters before every meal, friendly, smiling chefs who would make you whatever you liked, attentive bar staff & engerising staff in the kids club , to name a few.
We had a great Mr. Friday - Fathai - he was attentive without being intrusive & organized everything we needed.
My husband went to the spa quite a lot & the treatments we had were wonderful. While it may not be as plush as some of the other island's spas, the service & quality of the treatments were excellent. All the therapist's were great & we have returned home refreshed & with lovely glowing skin, thanks to them. The relaxation area is lovely, but put plenty of insect repellant on first , as this seems to be the place where the mosquitos particularly like to hang out !
The highlight of the trip was snorkeling with the Manta rays - wow - do not miss this experience & big thank you to Frederica who kindly sent some photos on to us as we had no underwater camera.
Finally, it was so hard putting our shoes back on after living a carefree, barefoot life for a little while.
Thank you Soneva .

This is my third stay and I can’t say anything else than this “the” place.
I have been here for holydays, and this time for work having a workshop with some colleagues.
The bungalows are of top class and the food and selection of wine makes you feel like you are in heaven.

It was my third time to the Maldives. I stayed in a very good resorts but Soneva Fushi was great in every thing. From my arrival in Male Airport to the greeting at the state of art resort where you live in the earth paradise. Staff, food, service is just perfect. Worth every Dollar. If you can offer it do not miss it. Soneva Fushi is the best resort in the Maldives for romance, family and relax. Certainly will be back.
