Soneva Fushi is the original desert island hideaway.
Fifty-five vast, multi-bedroom villas or private residences are hidden among dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine, Biosphere UNESCO protected coral reef. Intuitive service is provided by Mr./Ms. Friday butlers who know what you want before you want it.
Every visit makes you feel young again. And children are well looked after too. Cycling round the island, never knowing when you might have to swerve to avoid bunny rabbits or lizard. Watching movies in Cinema Paradiso, counting Saturn’s rings in the Observatory. Deciding between sixty flavours of ice cream. Eleven types of pillow. Five hundred different wines. Three to nine bedroom villas. And nine dining options too.
If the experiences are magical, the philosophy is simple: No news, no shoes. No pretensions either. Coming soon, a floating villa concept Soneva in Aqua and a treasure trove children’s Den.
