Soneva Fushi is the ultimate Robinson Crusoe Island hideaway. The resort has a very natural deserted island theme, with lush vegetation and a jungle like feeling. It has stunning beaches, some of which are completely deserted, a fantastic house reef and multiple dining options all with a rustic, luxury island feel. The villas are all on land and are designed to feel like your very own luxury tree house with white stucco walls, a four posted netted bed and timber railings made from tree branches.
Soneva Fushi is located in the stunning Baa Atoll one of the most marine rich Atolls in the Maldives and recently named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for its high biodiversity. The island is one of the largest resort islands and it is certainly the most Robinson Crusoe like. With dense jungle like pathways ready for exploration, you are given bikes to ride around the island on. Soneva Fushi has soft white sand beaches and an iridescent aqua lagoon.
Must Do: Soneva Fushi has so many combinations of room types that suit families with many multiple bedroom options. If you want to experience the split level tree house style living book the Crusoe villas or for a family with older children the Two Bedroom Crusoe villas are every child's dream come true. Families with younger children may find the Soneva Fushi villas more convenient as they are one level with no stair cases to negotiate.
For an island the size of Soneva Fushi, only having 65 villas means that the majority of the island is yours to explore. The villas are surrounded by lush palm jungle, making them very private and atmospheric.
Crusoe Villa: Total Area 235 sqm / Internal 64 sqm
Must Do: A destination dining experience at Soneva Fushi is delivered in true Soneva Fushi style. For a family, try a gourmet sandbank picnic. For a couple, try the sandbank dinner and they can even set up a luxury 'tent' complete with pillow topped bed for you to sleep on your deserted island!
Soneva Fushi offers multiple dining options, all keeping with the castaway island feeling. The food is of an exceptional standard and they are very proud of their extensive organic garden. Soneva Fushi is a resort with a true conscience. They have invested a great deal into developing their organic garden that is first class and supports all of their restaurants.
Mihiree mitha means “here it is”, and almost any dish you crave is here at the main restaurant, the culinary heart of the island. Bountiful breakfasts includes eggs any way you like, two dozen imported cheeses, just baked goodies with homemade jams, fresh fruits too like luscious mango, papaya and passionfruit that also go into delectable smoothies. Take cover from the equatorial sun at lunch under the shade of palm trees with the Indian Ocean a few metres away. Enjoy the freshest sushi and sashimi, organic salads, sizzling wood fire pizzas, grilled fish, authentic Indian breads and meats from the tandoor oven. Find room for one of more than 60 homemade ice creams and sorbets, including unexpected flavours like honeycomb and rosemary, piña colada and chocolate-lemongrass
Must Do: It is a hard decision as to what the 'Must do' is here. We would have to say that snorkelling the house reef followed by a relax in the netted hammocks is a perfect way to spend the morning. Of an evening, the jungle cinema and the Observatory are also experiences that will leave you star struck! With any of the private excursions that Soneva are famous for, keep in mind there can only be one of these at any time so it is essential to book.
