In 1995 Eva and Sonu Shivdasani opened a resort in the Maldives that was the embodiment of their shared vision for a destination that blended the highest standards of luxury with environmental sustainability.
Located in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, reached by a scenic 30 minute seaplane flight direct from Male International Airport. Soneva has an exclusive airport lounge for guests at the seaplane terminal. Arrivals into Dharavandhoo Airport will take a short 10 minute speedboat transfer to the island.
By day learn to dive or snorkel with the marine biologist, indulge in a few hours of authentic treatments in the spa and see the children learn to make a mocktail in the Den. By night sleep under the stars on your private sandbank, watch a film at the outdoor cinema and stargaze from the world class observatory.

Why we like it
For its originality. Soneva Fushi was the original and remains one of the best island resorts in the Maldives. It isn’t flashy but the attention to detail and service level is without question of the highest standard found in the region.
