The original “No news, no shoes” resort - barefoot, eco-centric chic.

Just a thirty minute seaplane flight from Malé, Soneva Fushi is situated in Baa Atoll; a designated UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, renowned for its incredible marine life, even by Maldivan standards. This is a true luxury Robinson Crusoe-style barefoot escape and the island's natural beauty has certainly been retained. From the shoreline, the entire resort is hidden among jungle trees and is designed with natural materials to blend seamlessly into its surroundings.
More than most, Maldivians have to be very eco aware but, fuelled by the owners, the resort has a genuine passion for protecting the environment. Soneva Fushi has its own glass recycling centre, used for its own waste as well as that of neighbouring resorts in the Baa Atoll. Coupled with the in-house glass-blowing studio, they turn five tonnes of waste glass a year into handsome tableware and works of art. They also use their own vegetable garden (with free-roaming rabbits), harvesting its bounty to showcase in the ‘Down to Earth’ restaurant.

As well as the obvious pursuits the Maldives are famous for, the resort has some very special touches -the first open-air cinema in the Maldives and an observatory to view the twinkling stars.

Facilities

Robinson Crusoe never had this much fun.

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.

Accommodation

Rustic, comfortable luxury in harmony with nature.

Just 65 villas and suites on a large island gives a serene sense of privacy. They are hidden among lush vegetation and have their own terrace leading to the beach. Some have private pools. All are decorated with the woods and fabrics of the region with open-air bathrooms and secluded walled gardens. The ‘smallest’ of the villas at 250 m² are the largest entry-level villas in the Maldives.

There’s a huge variety of accommodation but at the highest level, all but one of the four-bedroom villas has a retractable roof above the master bed where guests can gaze at the Milky Way while comfortably supported by a pocket-sprung mattress and several of the 11 varieties of pillow on offer.

A zero-plastic policy means natural indigenous materials are used throughout, giving a simple, rustic look with coconut wood furniture, billowing mosquito nets and discreet tech such as televisions concealed inside vintage trunks. Terraces come complete with hammocks, daybeds and the hypnotic symphony from the verdant jungle.
