Soneva Fushi offers a truly special castaway experience, located in Maldives’ only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve it is blessed with spectacular coral reefs and amazing marine life, surrounding by lush jungle, powder white beaches and the glistening Indian Ocean.


  • Sophisticated, stylish beachfront 1 to 9-bedroom villas
  • A cool eco chic vibe with laid-back barefoot luxury
  • Mr. and Ms. Friday butlers who know what you want before you even want it
  • 9 tempting dining options and an award-winning onsite spa

Soneva Fushi is your opportunity to truly get away from it all where a “No News, No Shoes” ethos is encouraged, synonymous of the Soneva brand. From the moment you arrive, feel the sand between your toes, live life free of emails and sense the connection to nature. The experience is magic, the philosophy is simple with no pretensions either – an eco vibe focused on slow living, reconnecting and embracing life in the present moment.


Vast, multi-bedroom luxury villas and private residences are hidden amidst dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine white beach and coral reef. It’s an island paradise like no other where understated luxury and minimalist design meets eco-conscious living in a tropical oasis.

Explore the island on bicycle, swerving to avoid bunny rabbits or lizards, count Saturn’s rings in the Observatory, venture out for a spot of snorkelling where you just may see manta rays, turtles and whale sharks and dive in some of the best spots in the world for richness of colour and life beneath the waves. Camp on a private sandbank beneath the wide Maldivian skies and catch the sun’s first illuminations over the Indian Ocean as you share a gourmet breakfast for two. Sunbathe and snorkel on an uninhabited island or embark on a fishing expedition where a chef will teach you how to make Maldivian curry with your glorious catch. Find out what local life is really about as you stroll the white sand lanes of a tiny village, then set out on a traditional wooden dhoni for a dolphin safari; a stay at Soneva Fushi is like no other.

Unearth the magic of Soneva Fushi and watch a movie in the beachside Cinema Paradiso under starlight sky as the waves lap against the shore. Children and adults alike will take much delight in the ice cream parlour where sixty delicious flavours are waiting and you have endless dining options available.

Soneva Fushi truly is an island of dreams for all ages and children are well looked after in The Den, a playground for the imagination complete with a pirate ship, two swimming pools, a children’s mocktail bar, lego room, dress-up area, cinema, library, learning area, music room filled with instruments, and a tunnel.

From soothing scrubs and oils of local coconuts to Tibetan hot stones, the Six Senses Spa invites you to embark on a sensory journey of authentic treatments from near and far. Enter the peaceful enclave of the spa and choose from a variety of body treatments, specialist traditions and wellness therapies in one of the nine treatment rooms or opt for the romantic couples suite.

This eco-concious resort supports marine conservation with pockets of the island’s coastline untouched so turtles can continue nesting there and one of the largest solar power plants in the Maldives.

Exceptional 1 to 9-bedroom villas offer direct private access to the beach and are backed by jungle foliage. Incredibly spacious, light and airy,rooms feature rustic outdoor bathrooms and terraces, bathrobes, slippers and full-size organic Soneva toiletries with the option of in-room dining. Villas also contain a flatscreen television and DVD player, binoculars, preloaded iPod and dock, a mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities.

Upgraded villas add pools; private reserves add libraries and gyms.




Seven high-end restaurants are available serving local and international cuisine; some are beachfront, others overlook the jungle. You can also grab a coffee at one of the 4 coffee shops/cafés.

At Mihiree Mitha the day begins with a bounty of just-baked goodies, two dozen imported cheeses, eggs cooked any way you like, a treasure chest of homemade jams and fresh fruits… luscious mango, papaya and passionfruit. For lunch or dinner, choose from the freshest sushi and sashimi, organic salads, wood-fired pizzas, grilled fish, delectable tandoori.

Fresh in the Garden is a restaurant without walls surrounded by tropical banana trees and sublime panoramas stretching beyond.
