About Soneva Fushi Resort & Spa, Maldives

The epitome of barefoot luxury, guests' shoes are even taken away when they reach this resort.

Barefoot luxury in the jungle and on the beach, here you have the best of both worlds as you explore the natural wonder that is the Maldives. Soneva Fushi Resort & Spa is the ultimate way to detach from urban living and is brimming with activities for everyone to enjoy.

Accommodation & facilities

As you would expect from somewhere with 65 villas, there is a large range in the accommodation on offer, from one bedroom bungalows, to two bedroom villas with a natural sea pool. Varying in luxury and amenities, they are all sustainable and have the same type of feel, like a home from home nestled into the trees. Cosy yet cool, each one has its own little stretch of private beach and a bathroom opening out onto a private garden. Pillows are plush and cotton sheets are crisp, then added little touches make each one equally as special. 13 of the accommodations have their very own pool, and all of these have a Mr (or Mrs) Friday to attend to your each and every need. Villa features include Wi-Fi, a safe, minibar, tea & coffee making facilities and a TV, as well as a CD player and DVD player.

Facilities include organic gardens, an outdoor cinema and a seaside spa with treetop yoga perch, as well as a wine cellar, chocolate room, ice cream parlour, library and access to pretty much any water-sport you could fancy in the lagoon. Dining and drinking options include the main restaurant, a bar over the water where dolphins tend to play, a restaurant in the organic gardens, the main bar and more.

Dining

Whether you choose to dine in the main restaurant, Mihiree Mitha, on the beach or surrounded by banana trees in the garden, cuisine is freshly plucked and picked from the surrounding island and waters. Enjoy Mediterranean food made for sharing, or tapas with cocktails in the bar over the water where dolphins play and turtles paddle meaningfully past. There is also ‘in destination’ dining available where you can pick wherever you fancy dining on the island and get delivered there by speedboat, or choose to eat on their favourite sandbank.

Activities

There is supervised snorkelling to the house reef, or you can head to the dive school; other water-sports include wind-surfing, hobie-cats, canoes, water-skiing and wake-boarding.
