Soneva Fushi, Maldives
Located in a spectacular UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi’s eco-chic villas are dotted through verdant jungle hemmed by pristine sands. The resort’s laidback style embodies Soneva’s signature barefoot luxury and guests are encouraged to adopt a casual “no news, no shoes” ethos.
The resort offers a range of freshly-prepared cuisines. Main restaurant Mihiree Mitha serves a range of breakfast dishes followed by fresh sushi, organic salads, wood-fired pizzas, grilled fish and succulent tandoori for lunch and dinner. Guests can savour traditional Maldivian fare at Sobah’s Restaurant, located on an uninhabited island; or tuck into Mediterranean-inspired creations prepared with home-grown ingredients at Fresh In The Garden, a treehouse-style retreat perched amid tropical banana trees. Down To Earth serves sumptuous buffets and sharing menus, while By The Beach offers mouth-watering sushi and sashimi under the stars as the waves roll ashore. For an extra-special dining experience, intimate ‘destination dining’ can be arranged in a secluded location – such as a picnic on a private island or dinner in the lush jungle.
Soneva Fushi offers an array of activities for all ages. Look out for sea turtles and manta rays while exploring spectacular reefs in the Baa Atoll, or embark on a guided dive through this underwater wonderland with a PADI instructor. Complimentary non-motorised watersports range from kayaking to windsurfing, or you can head out at sunset on an evening fishing trip – the resort’s chefs will prepare your catch on your return. Indulge in a blissful treatment at the spa while younger guests enjoy The Den, a fun-filled kids’ club with pirate ship, swimming pools, lego room and cinema. After nightfall, guests can spot celestial constellations through the resort’s state-of-the-art telescope and enjoy a classic film screening under the stars at the open-air beach cinema.
The beachfront Crusoe Villa Suites with Pool offer a luxurious castaway experience. Fully air-conditioned, each villa features a suspended upper terrace, private pool and walk-in wine cellar. There’s a spacious master bedroom and adjacent kids’ room, open-air dining area, living room and outdoor garden bathroom with bathtub and shower. Guests can enjoy butler service and bicycles are provided on which to explore the island.
