Soneva Fushi

Soneva Fushi

Hidden among dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine, UNESCO-protected 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.

Located in the Baa Atoll, Kunfunadhoo Island is one of the largest islands in the Maldives. The resort can be reached by a scenic 30-minute seaplane flight from Malé International Airport or a 12-minute speedboat ride for guests scheduled on domestic flights at the nearby Dharavandhoo Airport. Soneva Fushi has a private airport lounge exclusively for Soneva guests at the seaplane terminal.

Luxury Villas in the Maldives

The villas at Soneva Fushi are located on the island's sunset or sunrise side. While both sides have the Maldives' signature white-sand beaches and crystal clear azure waters, there are a few differences. Sunset side - For snorkelers - This side has three house reef access points, and dolphins are more likely to be spotted in the channel. On this side of the island, it is possible to see the neighboring island, Eydhafushi, approximately 650 meters away. Guests who want more privacy may consider staying on the sunrise side of the island. Sunrise side: For privacy - Enjoy virtually unimpeded views out to sea, as Maalhos, the closest neighboring island on this site, is just a speck on the horizon. This site is perfect for early risers who want to enjoy the morning tranquillity. The resort features 57 private villas with their own stretch of pristine beach. Designed to offer ultimate privacy and a pure connection with nature, each retreat features open-air bathrooms that extend into a private garden.

Soneva Fushi Dining

Discover all of the dining destinations and experiences available at Soneva Fushi and on the untouched islands surrounding us. Hosts are happy to customize each experience for a special occasion, celebration, or simply just because.

Fresh in the Garden - Mediterranean, Organic, Vegetarian, and Plant-based - Dine high above the gardens, where the herbs' aroma wafted up from below. The central open kitchen gives you front-row seats to the action. Choose to sit under cover or beneath the starry night sky.

Once Upon a Table – International - A culinary theatre showcasing some of the biggest names in fine dining. There is no menu, allowing the creativity and skills of the chef to take center stage.

So Hands-On – Japanese – The sushi counter sees some of the world's best sushi masters behind its sake-polished Japanese pine, known as the 'hinoki,' countertop. The intimate five-seater sushi counter lets you experience the chef's dextrous skills up close.

Mihiree Mithaa - Take your pick from bountiful buffet, offering freshly cut fruits, baked goodies, a salad room, wood-fired pizzas, and Soneva's ubiquitous ice cream and chocolate rooms.

Soneva Fushi Experiences

A personalized tour of the Soneva Art Gallery and Boutique is available upon request.

The Den - The Den is where the younger guests can unleash their imagination, creativity, and curiosity. Explore the outdoor pirate ship, cook or mocktail classes, learn a musical instrument, or participate in arts and crafts. There is a separate pool for toddlers, as well as a separate area for teenagers.

Snorkel Hanifaru Bay, with Manta Rays - Home to one of the world's largest populations of manta rays. Conditions and season (June to November) permitting, watch hundreds of mantas as they feed on plankton. If there are no Mantas, the Marine Biologist will take you to another snorkeling spot.

Astronomical Dinner Cruise?? - This incredible experience begins at late sunset, featuring a four-course meal with wine pairings. The resident Astronomer will guide you through the wonders that stare back at you across the night sky, sharing secrets of the cosmos.

Castaway Picnic? - Let us whisk you away to one of the lush, uninhabited islands for a true castaway experience. Hop aboard the boat and sail to the island with your picnic basket and snorkel gear, where you will be left to enjoy your day in the sun.

Complimentary Water Sports -Offering a range of complimentary non-motorized water sports at Soneva Fushi. This includes kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, windsurfing, and catamaran sailing. Private tuition is available at an additional charge on an hourly basis.

eFoil, eSurf & Seabob - Experience the ocean with complete freedom. Gliding, diving, skimming – all of this is possible with a SEABOB. Learn to move through the water like a fish, on the surface and beneath the waves. The SEABOB is environmentally friendly, moving powerfully and almost silently as you explore the marine world.

eFoils use an advanced battery to power a silent electric motor mounted on an all-carbon-fiber hydrofoil, controlled with a wireless Bluetooth hand controller. From beginners to those already skilled on a board, riders can fly for over an hour of fun at speeds of up to 40km per hour!

What happens if you fit a surfboard with a motor? You get an eSurf-board with a carbon fiber body that is hydrodynamic and stable. The board also houses the motor, and you control the handheld throttle. The eSurf lets you get up to speeds of 56km per hour, making this an exhilarating water sport.

Diving - The Soleni Dive Centre's multi-lingual PADI instructors and small group sizes ensure you world-class diving experiences. Choose from several diving courses, and equipment is available to rent.

Six Senses Spa

From soothing scrubs to Tibetan hot stones, you are invited to embark on sensory treatments from near and far. A revolving residency of visiting practitioners adds to the spa's collection of treatments with their respective forms of expertise.
