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.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
