Soneva Fushi Resort is the original desert island hideaway in the Maldives and the ultimate luxury destination for families and friends to enjoy together.
Magical multi-bedroom villas and private residences are hidden amongst dense foliage, each within touching distance of a pristine, Biosphere UNESCO protected coral reef.
The aim of the Soneva Fushi resort is to make you feel young again. And children are well looked after too - from cycling round the island to exploring specially-designed hideaways and activities designed to satisfy every aspect of their curiosity.
The philosophy is of Soneva Fushi Resort is "no news, no shoes and no pretensions". I'd add to that "no worries" thanks to the intuitive service provided by the resort's Mr. and Ms. Butlers - they seem to know what you want before you've even thought of it.

Make it extra special
Soneva Fushi Resort is so unique your stay will feel extra special whichever villa you select. What sets Soneva Fushi Resort apart is the amount of thought that has gone into creating experiences that will fill you with wonder. Our favourite is the Elite Experience - perfect for those who want to feel like the luckiest people on earth:
Begin in the late afternoon hours with a private tour of the Baa Atoll by seaplane. After enjoying the beauty of the island from the sky, you'll land next to the resort's surreally beautiful private sandbank where you'll be greeted with chilled Dom Perignon and a table set just for you.
Dine on luscious courses by lantern light after which you'll be left to enjoy the sunset (and what is now your own private island) from a luxury tent. As the sun rises over the horizon, your boat will arrive set with a sumptuous breakfast before returning you to your villa.
