For those who can face relinquishing their delightful accommodation or spot at the incredible sea and beach, there’s a hive of activities available. Snorkelling at Soneva Fushi’s house reef is absolutely mindblowing and staying on water, there’s kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, diving and fishing. Guests can cycle around the island on a resort bike, play tennis, find their inner chi at treetop yoga, gaze at the stars at the fancy observatory or indulge in treatments from scrubs to hot stone massages at the fabulous Six Senses spa.
The resort has its own sandbank a few minutes’ boat ride away with a fabulous sunset cocktail reception each week.
Films by starlight is also available in the resort’s open-air cinema, where guests are given headphones, lest the soundtrack disturbs the local wildlife, especially the turtles.
Only two actual restaurants but both are exceptional. ‘Fresh in the Gardens’ is perched high above the flora, with an open kitchen and stunning local flavours. Mihiree Mithaa is a more informal beachfront diner highlights International and Asian fare. Additionally, twice weekly, Sobah’s Restaurant pops up, offering exclusively Maldivian fare on the sands of an uninhabited island which is a 15-minute speedboat ride away from Soneva Fushi. Plus Once Upon a Table – an eight seat culinary theatre showcasing some of the biggest names in fine dining. No menu, just the chef’s creativity taking centre stage.
The Den Kids Club is a whimsical open-air playground with a Nemo-shaped toddler pool.
