This was my first time to the Maldives and one of the Soneva group and it met every expectation and more. Soneva Fushi is simply a way of life and brings the dream escapism of what you can only see in in the movies to complete reality. The hosts are wonderful, very attentive and kind. Our Mr Friday (Ahmed) was...

We had a lovely, and very relaxing, time at Soneva Fushi as a family of four (with two children aged 6 and 4) in October 2016. 'The Den' is quite probably the best kids' club in the world. The restaurants were wonderful and the service and amenities flawless. It's a large island and that means there's plenty to do and...

This was our 6th stay. The combination of complete informality, outstanding service and excellent food means that as we left we were working out how soon we could return. However if you like to dress for dinner and party through the night this island is not for you

If you are looking to totally relax this is your place Make sure you're not on the side of the resort that faces the ugly island !!!! The side of the water sports and breakfast is paradise but unfortunately not the other side .

Dear Kate, Thank you for sharing details of your 'phantastic' time at Soneva Fushi.

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
