Soneva Fushi, Maldives

There’s a billion buzz words to rave about when it comes to Soneva Fushi, with barefoot and castaway chic being the first swish superlatives that spring to mind. This is a private island from paradise; sure, you have the coconut strewn sands and glossy blue sea, but it’s the level of luxe that really ramps up this captivating corner of the Maldives. Thatched mansions are prisms of eco-perfection stashed among thick lush greenery and wild rabbits. If jungle dreams, sustainable surf charters, and dedicated rooms for cheese and chocolate aren’t enough to swing the vote – perhaps the added advantage of an award-winning spa and dedicated family butler will tip the balance into pure bliss.

DINING

Foodie experiences at Soneva Fushi come in full technicolour. The resort takes its culinary cool seriously, and even host once in a lifetime collaborations with visiting chefs in partnership with the prestigious Michelin Guide. Endless dining options take food lovers on tasting journeys to rival Homers Odyssey, whether you dine from the garden, land or sea. Take breakfast at the laid-back Mihiree Mitha on heavy wooden furniture with your toes right in the sand. Flaky pastries, fresh mango creations, and eggs a million ways is just a glimpse into morning decadence. This is also where you will find the dedicated ice-cream and chocolate rooms for when sugar pangs hit later in the day.

Fresh in the Garden is your go-to for herby bright and delectable Mediterranean inspired plates, the freshest ocean-caught fish, and canopy views out across the lush jungle – dreamy on a star-laden night with a bottle of something special. Once Upon a Table is the stage for those who adore menu free intimate dining experiences. With ocean views, centre stage chefs, and dining space for 8 – it’s all about sensory showmanship.

Out of the Blue, the newest two-tiered restaurant is the star of the show. Built on wooden stilts over the mirror clear waters, it’s the spot for wild sushi dreams, finely tuned Asian fayre, gorgeously tender grilled meats, and a million concepts that keep everyone equal measures satiated and entertained. From a dedicated cheese room to overwater organic greenhouse where you can pick your own glut of garden delights, Out of the Blue is the heart of the resorts innovative dining scene.

 

POOLSIDE

With a range of private villas all boasting private pools and the ebb and flow of the coral-rich sea, Soneva Fushi is free from a communal pool space, but with water everywhere – you won’t miss it.

SPA & WELLNESS

The award-winning Six Senses Spa taps into all of the feels and more. The melodic magic of this Maldivian island location, the expertise of local healers, and the harmony of R&R is the perfect storm for getting back in balance. Holistic healing starts with wellness screening, private Ayurveda programs, and personalised plans. A layered approach blends high tech and soft touch to bring out the nurturing side of science and nature. Marma massages, chakra balancing, 24 karat gold facials, green coffee body sculpting, and yoga and meditation training are all tantalising treats to help you find your own version of core beauty.

ADULT TIME

Imprinting itself as a golden honeymoon spot, you can be sure that Soneva Fushi is generous when it comes to adult only fun. While Little Wayfarers are running riot in The Den, grown-ups get their fill on a Bedouin-inspired private sandbank overnight experience. Back at the resort and it’s all about sipping cocktails in hammocks strung right over the water, taking a rose-crystal facial, and heading out on a mind-blowing astronomy cruise.

ACCOMMODATION

Whether you prefer waking up to champagne pink skies or watching stars stud purple and gold backdrops, Soneva Fushi has a side from you. A stunning array of 57 villas sit facing either sunrise or sunset, each cut from the same cloth as the word’s rustic-chic with elevated outdoor living, calm vibes, and plenty of natural hewn wood. Hammocks, daybeds, private plunge pools, al fresco bathrooms, and easy access to verdant jungle, white sand, or house reef invites Mother Nature to be your own backyard. While some may initially lament the loss of stilted villas, its Soneva Fushi’s commitment to keeping the fragile reef safe that lends beloved substance to the resort.

PRIVATE RESERVE

Fall into a fantasy land seemingly plucked from the inner folds of your imagination. The staggering Private Reserve taps into dreams you didn’t even know you had. Boasting space for 18 adults across 9 bedrooms and almost 60,000 sqm of fragrant flora and fauna, the largest of the Soneva Fushi properties is all woven ropes, lagoon-like curves, waterslides, floating lounges, and ensconced Indian Ocean living. Weeks are lost to the folklore that is the Private Reserve; days are spent lounging and drunk on love as you watch the Little Wayfarers yell in delight at swishing down their own private waterslide.

Quiet time can be easily sourced with the solitude of your sweeping beach a few steps away, and giant overwater hammocks bring fun, frolicking and memorable spots for afternoon naps. Each room is a haven carved from the gifts of nature with gigantic beds, and outdoor tubs splashed with colour. Your own gym, sauna and steam room mean that surfers in the family can ride and flop and be refreshed in time for cocktail afternoon teas. A rosta of staff friendly spaces invite a private nanny and personal butler to keep bliss levels high. When the moon rises, there is no place more magical to throw a supper soiree than in the midst of the lagoon pool with your own sunken Sala.

VILLA 37

On the sunrise side, Villa 37 is also carved from fable, especially when you find out its centrepiece is a moon table. Rising eleven meters high above the canopy and occupying the highest space on the island, this is a gloriously rich and romantic place to dine; whether for champagne breakfasts to greet the birdsong or delectable dinners with sky melting views. Five bedrooms bring breathy spaces to life with vintage trunks, swathes of mosquito netting, rafters and warm wood shades. Indoor living is weep-worthy in its beauty with tree roots hanging overhead, artistic airy moods, and promises of canopies and stars.

Your own freshwater pool comes with the twisting delights of its own water slide and the snooker table, and football table will keep competitive spirits high. For those calmer moments; a wine fridge stocked to the hilt, a peaceful library, sauna and steam room lend well to different styles of rejuvenation. Once more, outside space shines with two sunken lounges and a sink down bathtub accessible via stepping stones across a shimmering pond.
