Soneva Fushi

Baa Atoll | Super Deluxe

The term barefoot luxury is widely used in the world of travel, and frequently applied to Maldives properties, but in the case of Soneva Fushi it is a true description of the resort. With a ‘No News, No Shoes’ philosophy you’re encouraged to kick back and relax, escaping from the stresses of everyday life.

Soneva Fushi is also one of the most eco-friendly resorts in the region boasting one of the largest solar power plants in the Maldives as well as a recycling centre and marine conservation programme.

Tucked away amidst foliage, with a private sand ‘garden’ that leads directly to the ocean, each of the 55 villas is uber-private. Rustic interiors are furnished with wood and natural linen and there’s a personal Mr or Mrs Friday (butler!) on hand to attend to your every whim. Choose a villa with one or more bedrooms; on the sunrise or sunset side of the island; with or without a private (seawater) pool. Incidentally, we would suggest the latter as there’s no communal pool in the resort.

If you can drag yourself away from your villa, breakfast is well worth getting up for! Expect freshly baked pastries, full-of-fruit smoothies and eggs cooked any-which-way. Manta rays and turtles are regularly sighted on the superb house reef, so head underwater with a snorkel and the resident marine biologist. Venture slightly further afield and you may be lucky enough to see whale sharks. Back on dry land indulge in a treatment at the heavenly Six Senses Spa.

Evenings are a relaxed affair. Loll on large cushions on the sand or on a hammock suspended over the ocean, cocktail in hand as the sun sets. Enjoy a candlelit dinner of freshly caught seafood, under the starry sky. Maybe catch a classic movie at the open-air Cinema Paradiso: on your cushioned lounger munching on complimentary popcorn. You get the picture!

We Say
Between June & October, this is the best place to see manta rays.
