Soneva Fushi – Eydhafushi, Maldives

Luxury knows no bounds at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani, a slice of paradise in the Maldives. As you relax under clear blue skies with sand between your toes, Soneva’s ethos of barefoot luxury focuses on unforgettable experiences that enrich your life and broaden your horizons.

With vast beachfront and over-water villas, stunning locations surrounded by nature, and personal Barefoot Butlers providing an exceptional level of personalised service, Soneva’s resorts are a byword for Maldives luxury. And yet, at Soneva Fushi in the Baa Atoll and Soneva Jani in the Noonu Atoll, the real definition of ‘luxury’ goes far beyond the material instead, it means the time, space and privacy to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life, as well as the opportunity to immerse yourself in rare, once-in-a-lifetime experiences that will stay with you forever.

Since the opening of Soneva Fushi 25 years ago, the first barefoot luxury resort in the Maldives, Soneva has pioneered an entirely new kind of responsible luxury travel. It has shown how sustainability and indulgence can go hand-in-hand, from the organic gardens and Eco Centro waste-to-wealth centres at the heart of each resort, to details such as open-air bathrooms in every villa, or its famous cheese, chocolate and ice cream parlours, complimentary for every guest.

Each experience is designed to enchant and enthral. Rub shoulders with the world’s top glass artists to learn the art of glassblowing in the Maldives’ only hot glass studio, Soneva Art & Glass. Join the passionate Marine Team for hands-on conservation efforts that really make a difference, such as coral restoration or monitoring critically rare turtles. Discover the secrets of freediving, swim with dozens of manta rays and set sail on a stay-aboard surf safari on the Soneva in Aqua twobedroom yacht. Or explore the wonders of the night skies through the Maldives’ largest telescopes with Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani’s resident astronomers.

Younger guests can let their imaginations run free at The Den children’s zone, with a fun-packed daily programme of activities. They can also learn during their stay through the new Soneva Academy, which offers an array of fascinating courses for older children and teens, from ocean quests in the wake of ancient galleons, to discovering the science behind mosquitoes. During school holidays, there is also one-onone tutoring sessions and exciting activities with Oppidan Education, the UK mentoring experts.

Throughout the year, the ongoing Soneva Stars calendar ensures every stay at Soneva Fushi or Soneva Jani is completely unique, welcoming a sparkling line-up of Michelin-starred chefs, best-selling authors, sports legends, wellness therapists and more. Between now and the end of summer, Soneva’s chef’s tables will host residencies from celebrated chefs Stéphanie Le Quellec, Heiko Nieder, Alberto Faccani, Mark Lundgaard, Paco Morales and Béatriz Gonzalez. Acclaimed Tai Chi Chuan master, Tathata Kobayashi, will be sharing the secrets of this ancient martial art, while the legendary tennis champion, Jonas Bjorkman, will serve up exclusive coaching sessions on Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani’s rainforest courts.

The start of 2021 saw the opening of Soneva Jani Chapter Two, bringing with it even more luxury, and more inspiring experiences than ever before. With 27 exquisite new Water Reserves (among the world’s largest and most secluded), three new dining concepts and a new Soneva Wellness Centre, the new chapter also introduces Soneva Unlimited. This enables guests to indulge in everything the resort has to offer, all within the price of their Chapter Two villa, including unlimited fine dining, limitless wellness therapies, unlimited experiences and so much more.
