    Our opinion

    Soneva Fushi deserves its reputation as a world-class private island resort, that typifies barefoot luxury and complements its stunning natural environment. Soneva Fushi occupies a large Maldivian island and offers a great deal of private space and seclusion. There are spacious accommodation units too, with a variety of choice of suites, villa suites and 2-bedroomed villas, many with private pool. Exclusive authenticity.

    Hotel description

    Soneva Fushi is a first-class, world-renowned private island resort, full of eclectic style and barefoot luxury, which thoroughly complements its stunning natural surroundings on the Maldivian island of Kunfunadhoo. At 1,400 metres long and about 400 metres wide, Kunfunadhoo is one of the largest islands in the Maldives, and Soneva Fushi’s architects have worked carefully to combine the luxury of space, easy beach access and privacy. The island is large enough to explore and really get away from it all, perhaps by bicycle or along the hidden jogging trails that criss-cross luxuriant tropical vegetation. The 65 spacious rooms have thick white-washed walls, wooden or sandstone floors, beamed ceilings, thatched roofs and are furnished with stylishly rustic chairs and tables. Rattan and coconut wood hide modern-day conveniences such as the safe, hairdryer and hi-fi. The colours are natural, with shades of cinnamon and turmeric adding pinches of spice to the whites and browns. The rooms are all just a few steps from the beach. The resort has a large number of different room types, which we do not have the space to describe in detail here but can provide more information on request. The island is surrounded by a shallow lagoon of clear turquoise water enclosed by a coral reef, providing an ideal venue for snorkelling and diving as well as a range of other water sports. A feature of Soneva Fushi is the wonderful Six Senses Spa offering massage, reflexology and beauty treatments, a range of which we can pre-book for you. The magical character of the resort really comes alive at night, when dramatic lighting and candles create a sense of romantic luxury, and provide the perfect setting for memorable evenings. The dining experience here at Soneva Fushi is also suitably eclectic, with a combination of superb cuisine served in the main restaurant but also in your villa, on the sandbank, on the beach or on a boat. Flavours too are a combination of western and oriental, northern and southern hemisphere and with great emphasis on the cuisine of the Maldives, using fresh local fish with Thai and Sri Lankan influences. Whatever your inclinations, whether for peace and relaxation on the beach, indulging at the ‘mihiree mitha’ buffet lunch followed by ice cream in the parlour, getting active with water sports, or even visiting nearby islands by boat to glimpse the traditional Maldivian way of life, Soneva Fushi aims to provide personal service par excellence.
