Consider award winning Soneva Fushi when planning a romantic honeymoon. 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. The adventure begins with a thrilling 30 minute seaplane flight from Male International Airport. Soneva Fushi welcomes you to a luxurious experience in which the natural reality of the destination unites understated yet sophisticated style. This is Intelligent Luxury.
The sizeable island is 1,400 metres long and almost 400 metres wide and is one of the largest islands in the Maldives. Apart from the crystal clear waters, for which the Maldives is world-renowned, the island’s unusually rich vegetation provides a unique natural experience. Villas are scattered along the beach and tucked into the lush greenery, providing the ultimate in privacy. Guests are met on arrival by their personal butler: called Mr/Mrs Friday or a Guest Relations Officer. Instead of being taken to a check-in counter, you are lead directly to your villa where your favourite CD plays throughout to welcome you. Furnishings that reflect the rustic theme of a designer tropical escape are well placed throughout villas. Soneva Fushi offers just 65 accommodations, which capture the very essence of a luxurious castaway fantasy. The Jungle Reserve and the two Retreats offer the premier accommodation. Each villa opens to its very own stretch of white sand beach just a few steps away, whilst many also include Private Sea Water Swimming Pools. Each bathroom extends to a private garden, whilst utmost care is given to the environment.
Soneva Fushi dining experiences are diverse and memorable – from gourmet menus across a variety of cultures and cuisines, to organic offerings, simple barbecues and romantic escapades – and all complimented by an extraordinary wine cellar and innovative bars.
Ramble through nature with discovery excursions on the large island and neighbouring island villages, all the while, soft white sand soothes underfoot or visit the wonderful Spa. Central to the Spa is a large reflecting pond and water falls, setting the tone for soul therapy. A refreshing menu of holistic and traditional treatments conducted by highly skilled therapists using all natural products compliments the signature journeys in addition to Thai, Balinese and doctor-assisted Ayurvedic and nutritional programmes. Spa programmes are complimented by a complete gym, beachside treatment villas and a Yoga Pavilion for wellness therapies such as yoga and Tai Chi.
Experience the first open-air cinema in Maldives! Reminisce over one of the worlds favourite classic movies at Cinema Paradiso on Turtle beach, lie back under the stars and enjoy popcorn, selected dry snacks, Soneva ice cream and a wide selection of beverages. Soneva Fushi boasts excellent diving and snorkelling opportunities supported by a professional dive school, as well as bicycle riding, tennis, table tennis, badminton, beach volley ball, water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing trips and dolphin, sunrise and sunset cruises. For unforgettable, once in a lifetime memories, Soneva Fushi is an ideal honeymoon choice.
