Accommodation

PRIVATE RESERVE

Soneva Fushi's vision of a playful deserted-island mansion comes to full fruition on an oceanic scale in this villa. Escape to a world of jungle fantasies with the palm-frond roofs, woven ropes and tree branch banisters. At the heart of the massive swimming pool, find an expansive deck. Indulge with spa treatments, exercise, sauna and steam without leaving the forested mansion. Host dinners in your sunken dining area or spend the day lazing in and around curves of the lagoon-like pool.

VILLA 37

The highlight of Villa 37 is the Moonlight Table that rises above the roof and is the highest point on the island, where you can take your dining experience to new, panoramic heights with views of Maldivian sunrises and sunsets. This five bedroom villa was designed with large open spaces in mind. Splash down into your freshwater pool via the water slide, lounge on plush daybeds or in the library. There are many nooks and niches in this playfully designed mansion by the sea.

Experiences

Private Cinema Experience

Kick your feet up and lie back on the cushioned lounger with your family as you catch your favourite classics at Cinema Paradiso, the al fresco movie theatre. The waves lapping the shore, the gentle rustle of the trees and the glittering night sky will only add to the experience. An additional option of a barbecue dinner served during the movie is available at an extra charge.

Snorkel with Manta Rays

Join Soneva as they search for the enigmatic, graceful, inquisitive and charismatic Manta Rays in the waters of the Baa Atoll. If the conditions are right, you will go to Hanifaru Bay, located only 20 minutes by speedboat from Soneva Fushi, which has one of the world’s largest population of Manta Rays. When time and tide align, fortunate snorkelers get to observe and capture a rolling, whirling feast where it may be possible to see hundreds of these large yet harmless creatures congregate to gorge themselves in the plankton-rich waters.
