Soneva Fushi, one of the pioneers of barefoot luxury is a Robinson Crusoe style resort located on a large island but the vibe here is distinctly intimate. With stunning powder-white beaches, the boutique eco-chic villas of the resort are the perfect setting for romantic fantasies. Sustainability is at the core of the resorts philosophy. They have a no news, no shoes policy, they spearhead a marine conservation project on the island and they have a special Eco-centre for waste management and recycling. They even recycle glass bottles into beautiful artworks throughout the property. The 61 villas and private residences with thatched roofs are luxurious yet traditional which range from one bedroom to a nine bedroom private reserve. The unique architecture features raw wooden beams, high palm-thatched ceilings, and white stucco walls. Soneva Fushi features several innovative restaurants including Mediterranean style seafood, Peruvian influenced Japanese food and wine tasting evening. It features a world-class spa, a diving school and a wonderful outdoor cinema. Resort guests are treated to intuitive service by private butlers. Active guests have access to a tennis court, gym and the option to cycle around the island
Soneva Fushi is located on its own private island in Baa Atoll, a 30-minute seaplane flight from Male’s international airport directly to Soneva Fushi. Guests may also choose to take a 30 minute domestic flight to the nearby Dharavandhoo Airport, followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to the resort.
