Located in one of the furthest Atolls from Male, Soneva Fushi ‘s creation in 1995 was where the Maldives really took off in terms of being a leading destination for luxury resorts. Started by husband and wife team Sonu and Eva Shivdasani, the idea was to provide a luxury resort with completely green credentials using sustainable materials and practices to build the resort and also to run it in the long term.
Soneva Fushi has a vast array of different room types to suit different needs. The styles are really defined by the Crusoe and Retreat accommodation being of the Robinson variety and the Villas being a lot more contemporary.
Crusoe Villas (1 + 2 bedrooms - with and without private pools)
Soneva Fushi Villas (1 + 2 bedrooms with and without pools)
Soneva Fushi Villa Suite with Tree House (great fun for the kids)
2 Retreats with 2 or 3 bedrooms and private pools
The Jungle Reserve with 2 bedrooms and private pool.
Villa amenities include the following;- A/C, minibar, wine fridge, safe, binoculars, CD + DVD player, semi open air bathrooms, IDD phone, Wi-Fi, outdoor area with seating and loungers and direct beach access for all rooms.
As with all Soneva properties, the spa is run by another Shivdasani creation, “Six Senses Spas”. There is a vast choice of treatments and different rooms to suit all from air-conditioned indoor rooms to outdoor salas. As you’d expect the quality of treatment from initial consultation through to your post treatment tea is excellent and the therapists come from all over Asia, offering different skills and treatments. They also have guest therapists from Yoga masters to lifestyle experts. Try their unique new treatment “Watsu” which is Shiatsu performed in a hot water pool.
There are 4 key dining options here. The main restaurant, at the resorts heart is called Mihiree Mitha and provides open air dining for lunch, breakfast and dinner. Then there is Fresh in the Garden, an award winning healthy dining option set within the gardens of the resort where they grow a lot of their own herbs and vegetables. Sense by the Beach provides a very modern fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine. Ever Soneva so down to Earth provides Mediterranean fayre with a seafood influence. Aside to this there are various bars including bar(a)bara Bar on the west jetty, and The Main Bar complete with snooker table.
