About this tour
Inspiring a lifetime of rare experiences
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. More than 2 decades later, 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.
Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 63 spacious beachfront villas, ranging 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 their outdoor Cinema Paradiso. Unwind at their on-site Six Senses Spa. Choose from nine different dining options, five hundred wines and 11 types of pillow. Nature’s resources are transformed into art at the Glass Studio, while The Den gives children the freedom to live their island dream. The enormous children’s wonderland includes two swimming pools, a pirate ship, a Lego room, music room, a movie theatre, and much more.
Glorious days are spent star-gazing at the Observatory or sampling organic delicacies at the restaurants. Dine overwater at one of five restaurants at the new Out of the Blue dining destination, or deep in the jungle at Fresh in the Garden. Opportunities to venture beyond the island include cruises, picnics on private sandbank or deserted islands, breathtaking diving, or fascinating cultural visits to nearby islands. Soneva Fushi is the ultimate pioneer of memory-making experiences.
If the experiences are magical, the philosophy is simple: no news, no shoes. No pretensions either.
A preview of the trip
Soneva Fushi is a Robinson Crusoe-style tropical luxury hideaway on an remote island in the Maldives. Each villa is just steps away from white sand beaches and azure sea.
If Robinson Crusoe was a real person, Soneva Fushi would be his dream home. The 65 accommodations in this secluded resort are lofty and spacious and made from the best natural materials. In keeping with the castaway theme, many are built to resemble tree houses. All open to their own private beach and many many boast their own private seawater swimming pools.
The resort's numerous restaurants feature Mediterranean-style seafood, traditional specialties of the Maldives, and Peruvian-influenced Japanese food. One of the bars offers nightly wine tastings.
The snorkeling in the Indian Ocean around Soneva Fushi is excellent, and there's a diving school on premises as well as a world-class spa. At night you can recline on loungers and sip cocktails while watching Hollywood classics at the resort's outdoor cinema. Or you…
