A serene and laidback island resort in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll, Soneva Fushi is situated on the island of Kunfunadhoo, which is among the largest in the Maldives, and can be reached from Male’s Velana International Airport by a quick and easy 30 minute seaplane transfer. This all-encompassing, eco-friendly island resort offers a multitude of activities, with guests free to do as much or as little as they wish. The villas come in nearly two dozen different categories, so parties of all sizes including families can be comfortably accommodated - the largest villa has a total of nine rooms. The villas are simple yet luxurious and all have gorgeous views, some even come with their own private pool.

There's a great deal to do in the resort and beyond. Open air movie screenings at the al fresco Cinema Paradiso are a must, as is paying a visit to the observatory to gaze up at the night sky through the state-of-the-art telescope. Book an indulgent spa treatment and unwind in blissful surroundings at the Six Senses Spa, or keep active by playing tennis, working out in the gym or doing laps of the jogging track. Those looking to see more of the Maldives can go on various day trips, including excursions to the capital city, Male, and island hopping expeditions. Guests are encouraged to discover the area’s stunning marine biodiversity for themselves, with snorkelling, scuba diving and free diving all available. While there's no communal pool, many of the villas have private pools and there are of course the azure waters of the Indian Ocean to make use of. Note that in keeping with the resort’s eco-friendly policies, access is restricted to only certain parts of the coastline so turtles can lay their eggs in peace.

As for dining, there are lots of different experiences available, including the option to have picnics or meals on the beach and a restaurant located on a nearby uninhabited island. Food is freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients and guests can enjoy both Maldivian dishes and international cuisine.

Soneva Fushi welcomes children of all ages and is very family friendly indeed. There’s a babysitting service available for an extra charge, as well as a complimentary kids club, The Den. Here, children of all ages can take part in all sorts of activities designed to get them to use their imaginations and learn more about the world around them - note that children under the age of four have to be supervised by an adult or babysitter. There’s a weekly programme of activities and entertainment, with parents welcome to join in.

  • We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

  • It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
