Resort Introduction by The General Manager

In 1995, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani pioneered the concept of barefoot luxury on their private island resort, Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. They focused on providing exemplary service in beautiful surroundings, with a focus on sustainable yet ultra-luxurious accommodation. Two decades on, the resort still operates on this Robinson Crusoe ethos. Returning guests expect— and find— luxurious simplicity and intuitive service, facilitated by Mr and Ms Friday butlers, who know what you want before you want it.


A BRIEF OVERVIEW OF OUR Resort

Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 61 spacious beachfront villas, ranging in size from one to nine bedrooms, hidden among dense foliage and located within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.Everything about this magical place feels otherworldly, from the crystal clear turquoise water and dolphins at sunset, to the delicious meals available at the resort’s multiple dining venues. Nature is nurtured at this beautiful resort, from the sustainable design and furnishings of the villas, through to the operations and waste-to-wealth centre, which truly defines the essence of barefoot ‘intelligent luxury’. Watch classic movies at our outdoor Cinema Paradiso. Choose from nine different dining options, five hundred wines and 11 types of pillow. Unwind at our on-site Six Senses Spa. Nature’s resources are transformed into art at the Glass Studio, while The Den gives children the freedom to live their island dream. Glorious days are spent star-gazing at the Observatory, sampling organic delicacies and exploring the coral reef. Intuitive service is provided by Mr./Ms. Friday personal butlers who know what you want before you want it.

Resort Highlights

Highlight

Soneva Fushi is a popular honeymoon destination due to the space and privacy of villas, and the romantic experiences offered. Most villas have private pools and are within only a few steps of the ocean. We offer a lot of romantic experiences such as sunset dolphin safaris, private sandbank experience and many more. Private weddings on the sandbank are popular.Cinema Paradiso was the very first outdoor cinema in the Maldives! We love classic and inspirational movies and have regular movie selections for both adults and children. Movie aficionados can watch classics under the stars at the overwater outdoor cinema, with complimentary screenings three nights a week and private screenings four nights a week. Gourmet popcorn is offered on a complimentary basis and can be paired with cocktails or mocktails, the full-service bar and private dinners. Lie back and watch the stars under the stars!


Highlight

An additional 2% on room revenue is added to each guest’s stay. The proceeds are given to the Soneva Foundation. We have raised USD 6 million to date. The Foundation funds a range of projects that have a positive environmental, social and economic impact and most importantly, offsets carbon emissions from resort activities and guest flights. We became carbon neutral in 2014-15 for both direct and indirect resort operations including guest flights, which accounts for 80% of our CO2 emissions.
