This was our 5th visit to Soneva Fushi. This says it all. The Team could not have been more helpful, but at the same time the service is both friendly yet respectful. All the staff are encouraged to address you by your first name ( assuming that's what you want!) Meals are either on the beach or up a structure...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

Our 5th visit, and the place has never been more perfect. There's nowhere else like it for the feeling that you're every wish will be taken care of, every luxury met, and every privacy granted. If you want excursions, fine, if you want to be left alone to enjoy the barefoot luxuries of the island, fine. It's just magical, you...

We were a large family group of ten people and rented Villa 42. It was a life-enhancing holiday. We spent hours on top, under and beside the sea, We swam with turtles, dived with sharks and boated with dolphins. Every aspect of the resort was of the highest standard. Some of the best food we have EVER eaten, the best...

This place is like paradise! The experience began the moment we touched down at the Male airport in Maldives. We were escorted by the resort staff to a guest lounge, waiting to be boarded on a 30 minute seaplane flight to the fabulous resort island.

We have just returned from our 7th visit to Soneva Fushi - and have immediately started counting down the days until we return.

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
