An Imaginative Hideaway hidden among dense foliage within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination. The award-winning resort truly defines the essence of barefoot luxury with Robinson Crusoe simplicity.
The resort’s down-to-earth personality is reflected in its nature-inspired architecture. If the experiences are magical, the philosophy is simple; no news, no shoes.
Fifty-seven private villas with their own stretch of beach are hidden among dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine coral reef.
Highlights include the open-air Cinema Paradiso, counting Saturn’s rings in the high-tech Observatory, the home-made chocolate and ice cream rooms, five hundred wines to choose from, six different restaurants and countless destination dining options. In November 2015, Soneva have launched a floating villa concept, Soneva in Aqua, a treasure trove children’s Den and a multi-purpose facility encompasses a glass gallery, boutique and studio where guests can learn the art of glass blowing.
Each villa has the luxuries found in the best hotels. However, whilst offering all these modern facilities, Soneva Fushi has taken every opportunity to preserve the illusion of a Robinson Crusoe experience. Thus the hairdryer is likely to be found hidden in a drawer made of coconut wood, or the hifi might be concealed behind simple rattan.
The Villas are placed so that your very own stretch of white-sand beach is just a few steps away. There is dense vegetation in between each villa creating patios and gardens for secluded enjoyment. A favourite pastime is to sit back looking out to sea contemplating the beauty of nature. Each bathroom opens onto a private garden. In the Crusoe Villas, an open staircase leads to the upstairs bedroom.
Dining options at Soneva Fushi are designed to make your stay on Kunfunadhoo diverse, exciting and slightly adventurous. Our Chef and his multi-national kitchen brigade work to produce a combination of dishes that allow the east to meet the west in culinary terms. Every effort is made to find ingredients of the highest quality, have them delivered to the island and served as fresh as they would have been if served at their place of origin. With this philosophy in mind, our menus take full advantage of the abundance of fresh fish in the Maldives.
