Soneva Fushi, the first “Robinson Crusoe” style hideaway in the Maldives, is set on the privately owned, tropical island of Kunfunadhoo in Baa Atoll. The resort can be reached with scenic 30-minute sea plane flight.
The island is 1,400 metres long and 400 metres wide. It is one of the largest islands in Maldives. Apart from the crystal clear waters, white beaches and tropical climate, the island’s unusually rich vegetation offers a unique natural experience. Villas are scattered along the beach and tucked into the lush greenery, providing the ultimate privacy.
Fringed by white sand beaches that shelve gently into the azure blue sea, legendary Soneva Fushi looks like a Robinson Crusoe idyll, however the finest creature comforts are always at hand. Its remoteness is central to its charm, offering the ultimate in barefoot sophistication for which the oft borrowed expression – No News No Shoes was coined. Welcome to a luxurious experience in which the natural reality of the destination unites understated yet sophisticated style. This is Intelligent Luxury.
Soneva Fushi’s down to earth feel is reflected in its guest’s casual dress code and its naturally-designed architecture.
