Luxury bepoke holidays to Soneva Fushi, Maldives

Soneva Fushi is a first-class, world-renowned private island resort, full of eclectic style and barefoot luxury, which thoroughly complements its stunning natural surroundings on the Maldivian island of Kunfunadhoo. At 1,400 metres long and about 400 metres wide, Kunfunadhoo is one of the largest islands in the Maldives, and Soneva Fushi's architects have worked carefully to combine the luxury of space, easy beach access and privacy. The island is large enough to explore and really get away from it all, perhaps by bicycle or along the hidden jogging trails that criss-cross luxuriant tropical vegetation. The 65 spacious rooms have thick white-washed walls, wooden or sandstone floors, beamed ceilings, thatched roofs and are furnished with stylishly rustic chairs and tables. Rattan and coconut wood hide modern-day conveniences such as the safe, hairdryer and hi-fi. The colours are natural, with shades of cinnamon and turmeric adding pinches of spice to the whites and browns. The rooms are all just a few steps from the beach. The resort has a large number of different room types, which we do not have the space to describe in detail here but can provide more information on request. The island is surrounded by a shallow lagoon of clear turquoise water enclosed by a coral reef, providing an ideal venue for snorkelling and diving as well as a range of other water sports. A feature of Soneva Fushi is the wonderful Six Senses Spa offering massage, reflexology and beauty treatments, a range of which we can pre-book for you. The magical character of the resort really comes alive at night, when dramatic lighting and candles create a sense of romantic luxury, and provide the perfect setting for memorable evenings. The dining experience here at Soneva Fushi is also suitably eclectic, with a combination of superb cuisine served in the main restaurant but also in your villa, on the sandbank, on the beach or on a boat. Flavours too are a combination of western and oriental, northern and southern hemisphere and with great emphasis on the cuisine of the Maldives, using fresh local fish with Thai and Sri Lankan influences. Whatever your inclinations, whether for peace and relaxation on the beach, indulging at the 'mihiree mitha' buffet lunch followed by ice cream in the parlour, getting active with water sports, or even visiting nearby islands by boat to glimpse the traditional Maldivian way of life, Soneva Fushi aims to provide personal service par excellence.

About Maldives

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to the Maldives is ideal for visitors looking for a relaxing and luxurious holiday in serene surroundings. The small republic of the Maldives is a luxury holiday destination that possesses some of the most astonishing and beautiful underwater life in the world. Consisting of over a thousand tiny coral islands, the Maldives is traditionally a fishing and trading nation which converted to Islam in the 12th century. Aware of its magnificent natural resources, in recent years the country has striven to maintain its traditional way of life and preserve the natural beauty of the islands whilst offering visitors a secluded and exclusive holiday experience. With turquoise seas, coral sand beaches, swaying palm trees and thatched huts and cottages, the Maldives represents for many the perfect picture of a typical deserted tropical island, a dream holiday destination offering peace and quiet with hotels which epitomise barefoot luxury. The Maldives hotels and island resorts we feature really are the very best. Whilst they all look idyllic, and clearly with the deluxe resorts we offer, you will receive luxurious accommodation and outstanding service, there are important distinctions that our sales team can draw your attention to: distance from Male and how you travel to the resort (speedboat, seaplane or domestic flight plus boat), the size of the island (some are very small and intimate, others are found on larger islands or connecting islands, beach or overwater villas (the overwater villas are usually, but not always, more expensive than beach villas) and the range of facilities (dining options, water sports and diving).

Highlights of the Maldives

For many, the Maldives offer some of the most fascinating underwater exploration available, from both snorkelling and diving. There are over a hundred different species of fish, from angelfish to flying fish, snapper and triggerfish, stingray and shark, as well as turtles and numerous corals of a multitude of colours. If your resort is near Malé then the capital is worth a brief visit with its mosques, traditional houses with rounded corners and tea shops with a selection of ‘short eats’ including rice pudding, curried fish cakes and small bananas.

Cultural highlights of the Maldives

Bodu beru traditional music and dance, traditional seating - the undholi (like a hammock) and the joli (a net seat hung from a wooden frame), local crafts including mats, lacquer work and jewellery, traditional dhoni boats.
