Soneva Fushi is one of the most beautiful resorts in the Maldives – and that’s saying something. Maldives is a luxury destination known for offering some of the most extravagant travel experiences and stunning natural scenery on the planet. Even amidst this beauty and splendour, Soneva Fushi stands out. Take a look inside this surreally beautiful luxury resort in the Maldives.
Soneva Fushi is located on the UNESCO protected Baa Atoll in the Maldives. The resort’s luxury villas are shrouded among lush tropical foliage and fringed by a talcum-white beach. Soneva Fushi pioneered the castaway resort trend in the Maldives, allowing guests to connect with nature all the while being wrapped in sustainably built five-star luxury. The Soneva philosophy is simple: no news, no shoes.
Villas with WOW-Factor
Soneva Fushi has 57 luxury villas set on a picture-perfect stretch of white sandy beach shaded by swaying palm trees. The villas range from one-bedroom Crusoe Villas to the nine-bedroom Private Reserve. Soneva Fushi’s villas have been designed with utmost luxury in mind, but they still maintain the barefoot elegance that first inspired the resort. One of the standout features is the amazing sunken lounge found in Villa 11. Every villa is serviced by a Mr. or Mrs. Friday – your very own personal butler.
Romantic Treetop Dining
Besides the beautiful villas and stunning natural scenery, Soneva Fushi is known for its to-die-for dining options. Guest can venture out to Sobah’s, a restaurant set on a deserted island, a 15-minute boat ride from the resort. One of the most romantic options is the Fresh in the Garden dining experience, which allows guests to dine high among the banana treetops, above the resort’s organic gardens.
Epic Playground for the Kids
Though Soneva Fushi is tailor-made for romance, this laid-back luxury retreat is also a paradise for families. The resort has a designated Children’s Den, where kids can play on the pirate swing, hop on the water slide, play dress up, enjoy the cinema… And more. Guests of all ages are bound to fall head over heels for Soneva Fushi’s chocolate room.
Located far from the glaring lights of big cities, Soneva Fushi offers the perfect setting for some dreamy star gazing. The resort boasts its very own observatory, where guests can marvel at the wonders of the galaxy like never before, with no light pollution to dim your views.
Hugged by the turquoise waters of the Maldives, Soneva Fushi is the perfect location for exploring the ocean, both above and below the waves. Guests can go snorkelling with majestic manta rays, enjoy complimentary non-motorized water sports, set out for an evening of fishing on the high seas… or experience the magic of a sunset dolphin safari.
Castaway Dream Come True
Raise your hand if you’ve ever dreamt of leaving it all behind and running off to a deserted paradise island. Soneva Fushi was designed to make those dreams a reality. Steal away for a Robinson Crusoe castaway picnic and enjoy a beachside meal on an uninhabited island. If a picnic feels all too short, you can also opt for the private sandbank overnight experience, where you can spend the night in a glamorous Bedouin tent beneath the starry Maldivian skies.
Art of Glass
Mother Nature is not the only artist in residence at Soneva Fushi. Allow yourself to be inspired by the curated art displayed at the Soneva Art Gallery. Or perhaps you prefer to be a little more hands-on? Soneva Glass Studio invites guests to observe artisans at work and to try their own hand at the rare art of glass blowing.
Lights, Camera, Magic
Soneva Fushi’s very own Cinema Paradiso has got to be one of the most beautiful cinemas on the planet. Set right on the beach, this open-air cinema allows you to enjoy classic movie magic in the most scenic setting imaginable. Recline back on your plush seat, get a scoop of complimentary popcorn and allow yourself to be transported into a galaxy far, far away.
