The island is an enchanting tropical oasis. We enjoyed the privacy of our own villa, ourdoor showers, spa bathroom and our private pool. Champoo, our barefoot butler, was one of the finest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. We will miss her dearly. The dolphin cruise was one of the most magical experiences of our life. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for exceptional service and a tropical getaway in one of the worlds most beautiful and private islands.

We spend one week @soneva fushi...it was a week in paradise. The island and the lush jungle are just beautiful. The beaches, the villas, the restaurants are amazing and the staff is outstanding! The villas are just crazy. We had the freshly renovated Cruoso Villa with pool (Nr. 25) and it was way better than expected!! We enjoyed every moment we had and we will definitely return to this paradise. From the moment you arrive @Velana international airport in Male everything is perfectly organized for you. There is nothing to worry about until you have to go back home:)! The philosophy of Soneva is well known and makes the difference! Our barefeetbutler Chelsea did an amazing job. She was always there and cared about us. She organized everything for us. Thaaaaank you Chelsea!!! Food is a religion @soneva fushi! There are many different dining venues with amazing atmosphere and delicious food! The biggest THANK YOU goes to the staff/team! Thank you to Swatha who was sooo friendly to us. It was a pleasure to see you everyday! Thank you to Samir our waiter who was sooo friendly, attentive and helpful! Thank you to Rasheed from out of the blue. It was a delight to talk to him. Thank you to Jamil who brought us a healthy tea every day:)! Thank you to Kavish who took care of us @outoftheblue. You were sooo friendly...thank you and good luck for your next station in Laamu atoll! Thank you to Nimal who replaced Samir on his day off. You did a great job.

We have just returned from a beautiful 6 day trip to Soneva Fushi. In planning for this trip we considered a number of the newer resorts nearer the airport (Patina and Ritz Carlton) but really pleased we made the choice to come to SF. This is our fourth trip to the Maldives and we travelled as a couple and are resident in Dubai. We travelled in late August 2021. SF have colleagues to greet and assist you at Male airport on arrival and departure. It was very welcome. Soneva Fushi is one island with dense jungle like foliage. It was a lovely contrast to the turquoise waters. We had a mix off good sun and overcast days occasionally with dramatic but brief tropical downpours. We stayed in a Crusoe Suite which was only a minute walk via the beach to the main area of the resort. We stayed there for 3 nights. The villa was amazing in terms of space. It is clearly the largest villa we have ever stayed in with a family sala with generous seating for up to 10 people outside. The bathroom was designed so well with the showers and toilets opening up to the beautiful garden with another outdoor shower and sunken tub. The bedroom was upstairs and it leads to a small additional bedroom where a kid can stay. The open decking upstairs again has very generous seating. The villa was right on the beach which meant that dips in the pool and ocean was seamless. We also stayed in the water villa for 2 nights. This was absolutely spectacular. Again the space was phenomenal and the whole villa was very thoughtfully laid out. One of the offices can be converted into a bedroom and there was another small bedroom linked to the main bedroom where a child can sleep. The outside decking had a massive lap pool, netting over the ocean and sunken family seating. We also found the water villas extreamly light, airy and bright. In addition, the bedroom features a retractiable sun/moonroof which means you can flood the room with sun or sleep under the stars. It was an amazing experience. Our other favourite part was the rooftop sitting area where it was really breezy and you can enjoy sweeping views of the Indian ocean or have a nap. The water villas are pricey but worth it. I definitely prefer the water villa over the beach villa and it is an experience you should not miss. The beach and water villas have a fantastic Bose sound system with speakers in every room. So you can really move throughout your property with music or Netflix on in the background. The speakers extend to the garden (for the beach villas) and the upstairs seating area (for the water villas). It was great and there is no need to pack a bluetooth speaker on your travels. The villas have absolutely everything you need and it is great to see that they have successfully married it with sustainable castaway simplicity and design. The service brigade was really amazing and engaging. Everyone we met was so kind and helpful. We must say thank you to Sae, our barefoot butler who dealt with all our questions and organised events very efficiently. She really wanted us to have a great time and planned our events and dinner experiences before we arrived. We had rain on some of the experiences but she always had a plan B. She is superb and checked on us at various times during the day and was always available, thank you Sae! Swadha is an amazing F&B manager. Our first encounter with her was breakfast after our quarantine and she gave us a personal tour of the breakfast cooking stations, explained what was on offer and made sure everything was fine. It was a pleasure to chat with her every morning and evening as she also looks after the Fresh in the Garden dining option as well. She is so friendly and so professional at the same time. Nai from the glassblowing studio was so informative and educational. She is a Maldivian clearly dedicated to what she is doing and motivated to share her knowledge with passion. We really appreciated the impromptu tour of the glass showrooms and the art pieces. Thank you! It was really lovely to meet the GM, Eddie as well. Eddie has a calm and methodical manner and you can see he is highly visible and interacting with all guests to make sure everyone is having a good time. Eddie is relative new to Soneva Fushi but has a long multi decade career in the hospitality industry most recently with the Belmond Group. Enjoy your stay on the island Eddie! The sommeliers were so friendly and dedicated too. We enjoyed chatting with Charles who has a lot of interesting stories to tell. The Sri Lankan gentleman was amazing in his service delivery and he has superb timing for the wine pours during dinner, looking after all his guests in Fresh in the Garden so well. We had some really nice chats with the Indonesian and Vietnamese chefs from Out of the Blue and with Chef Akira, their resident sushi chef. If good food is what you are looking for in the Maldives, then Soneva Fushi should be right up there on your list. The island will have new food concepts opening by the end of 2021 so there will be more options. There is a little bit of construction on the island but this will not interfere with your stay at all. It is all cleverly masked off and away from the main guest areas. There is new accommodation being built to house all staff (previously some staff come from Eydhafushi, a neighbouring island) but due to Covid, it is easier to house everyone on the island instead of shuttling back and forth. Cinema Paradiso is currently undergoing renovations. Much talk has been mentioned about the neighbouring island of Eydhafushi. It is true that it has grown and it may not be the postcard setting which one may imagine of the Maldives but most of the villas (certainly the ones we had) do not have a direct view if this is a concern. I found it fascinating that a proper local island was so close and hoped Covid was not with us so we could have the opportunity of a local excursion to see local Maldivian life. Otherwise, we ate a little, slept a little, cycled a little and swam a little. It was our first overseas holiday in 16 months and it was an amazing experience and a privilege to spend time at Soneva. The villas are spectacular and the service team all on top of their game. Hope to have the opportunity to be back soon!
