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.


What makes Soneva Fushi so special is the effort that has gone into the natural design of the resort. Stopping to relax on one of the deserted beaches, you will find a chair carved out of a giant tree trunk. Even the library is built of natural timbers suspended in the tree tops, accessed by a spiral stair case, twisting around the outside of the building. The resort offers multiple dining options, all keeping with the castaway island theme and has an over water-bar with beautiful hammock style cushioned nets for you to relax in after a snorkel or to watch the gorgeous sunset from.

Soneva Fushi's main philosophy is 'No news, No Shoes' and this really says it all. They encourage you to unwind and feel the sand between your toes. Soneva Fushi doesn't have a main resort pool with the idea to encourage guests to embrace the stunning natural environment. Most villas do have private pools though.

Soneva Fushi is a resort full of activities. Even riding your bike to breakfast is an adventure if you want it to be. Soneva Fushi has a fantastic house reef for snorkelling, an outdoor cinema screening movies after sundown and even the Maldives only Observatory to gaze at planets and stars after dinner. Soneva Fushi doesn't have a kids club but it is a resort that is really fantastic for families with kids' bikes available and lots of family designed activities.

The service at Soneva Fushi is something that they are extremely proud of. You are allocated a Mr Friday who meets you as you arrive on the island and who will look after you for your entire stay. Nothing is too hard for a Mr Friday and they are an amazing part of your Soneva Fushi experience.

Families with younger children may find the Soneva Fushi villas more convenient as they are one level with no stair cases to negotiate.
