Soneva Fushi
  • rooms

    The resort blends the outdoors and indoors, using natural materials that give a sense of being at one with the environment. Villas overlook the Indian Ocean and are backed by lush jungle. Each villa has an infinity pool and private outdoor shower, and they feel light and spacious thanks to high ceilings and glass walls. Accommodation options range in size, from one to nine bedrooms, so families of all sizes are catered for. The largest ones feature a children’s playroom and water slide - setting the bar high for future holidays!

  • facilities & activities

    This resort goes way beyond the typical facilities on offer at many resorts. Treetop yoga, kite-surfing, free-diving and sailing/ diving with a resident marine biologist are just some of the activities available, as well as island-hopping excursions where you can learn how locals build their houses and prepare food. Watch dolphins whilst sipping champagne on a sunset safari, book a picnic on a deserted island or learn about the night sky over a four-course astronomical dinner cruise.

    There’s also a fun, open-air cinema and an observatory for star-gazing, and you can even learn how to blow glass in the on-site glass art studio. The resort has an award-winning spa that offers a wide range treatments - including hot stone massages and body wraps - amidst wonderful surroundings. Everything can be booked by Mr or Mrs Friday, your personal butler.

  • dining

    There’s ample choice of good quality, fresh food. The resort has its own organic vegetable and herb gardens, and guests can take a tour of the wine cellar - home to more than 7,000 bottles - with the resident sommelier.

    'Down to Earth' features an open kitchen where chefs prepare a mouth-watering array of dishes in front of you. The elevated 'Fresh in the Garden' restaurant is surrounded by banana trees and serves Mediterranean-style dishes, made using ingredients you can see growing below your seat. 'Mihiree Mitha' serves deliciously fresh sushi, while 'Sobah’s' is a traditional Maldivian restaurant set on an uninhabited island a 15-minute speedboat ride away.

    Each restaurant has options for children, as well as menus available for guests who are vegetarian, vegan, celiac and gluten-intolerant. Children will love the Willy Wonka-style chocolate room, and there’s also an ice-cream parlour serving up to 65 different flavours. There’s more to come, with a new over-water restaurant, complete with slide, opening soon.

  • family

    The resort is home to a fantastic kids’ club, The Den. Open daily from 10am until 5pm, it is complimentary for all in-house guests and features a pirate ship, two swimming pools, a Lego room, fancy dress area, cinema, library, and a music room. The Den is designed for children aged four and above, but children of all ages are welcome, although under-fours must be accompanied by an adult. Supervised activities in the kids’ club include cooking lessons, a kayak relay and a nature scavenger hunt, and there is also a soft-play area as well as a teen lounge.

    Spend quality time with your brood by booking a private family picnic with guided snorkelling, or star-gazing in the observatory before bedtime. Babysitting is available on request.
