“Honeymoon heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

Well it's not like we saw loved-up couples all over the place. If they were there, they were hiding in their rooms but we certainly enjoyed our honeymoon at Soneva Fushi. Not only that we were excited to be there at the same time actress Tilda Swinton was there and Michael Schumacher, race car driver. Wow. I even got to snorkel with him and his family. It's such a laid-back beautiful resort, it doesn't matter who is there, everybody is so super chilled out. The staff handle everything with no fuss, you cycle around on bicycles for an eco friendly experience - so do the celebrities who stay - and you are truly barefoot and breathless about what a lucky skunk you are just to be there in such exquisite well thought out surrounds. Everything they do is top notch, we wanted for nothing....our villas were so serene and comfortable. We didn't go for the eco friendly aspect but in the end it became super important to us. Thanks for the tip about www.caviarandmint.com that provides other uber luxe environmentally sensitive resorts because after this experience I don't think we could now stay anywhere that doesn't consider the environment the way these guys do. They truly lead the way....thank you Soneva, for making our honeymoon exceptional. Now we just need to plan a return for our 1 year anniversary...we've also been spoilt for life so nothing less is going to do.

Room Tip: We had the sunset side but next time I'd prefer the sunrise side simply because the view is bett...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review even though it has been a while since you last stayed with us. We are so glad that you enjoyed the barefoot eco friendly experience, and cycling around the island. It’s also great that not only did you enjoy being around celebrities, you also got to snorkel with them.

We certainly look forward to welcoming you back when you return for your anniversary.

Yours sincerely,


Laurie Burr
General Manager

A wonderful resort with an excellent manager , that makes you feel at home .
Excellent food , amazing dives .
True five star Robinson Crusoe experience .

We have been going for years and were never disappointed .

It is the commitment of the staff that makes a real difference .....

Room Tip: Any room is fine .... After all it is the environment of the island that counts .

Reading many reviews on trip advisor we decided to spend a week vacation in Soneva Gili at that was not a good choice.
The Hotel as a whole is ok, but certainly not a 5star.
Villa are well designed, spacious and clean.
Considering you are in Maldives the Lagoon is really poor... shallow waters, dead empty compared to many other Maldivian atolls and island.
The service is ok and the quality of food in the Restaurants and room service very average....
Better quality of food and less gimmicks will do. People are not going to Maldives to experience an underground wine cellar, cold and impersonal. People go to Maldives for stunning views of the lagoons and quality...
The Management is present and hands on which is great to see..however for the price you pay the product is poor.
Better choose northern atolls as laying down in the Villa Terrace with a plane flying over your head every 20 minutes doesn't give you the feeling of a remote luxury destination.
300$ for a 15 minutes boat ride to and from the Hotel...is a rip off.
Food for thoughts

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
When Eva and Sonu Shivdasani built Soneva Fushi as well as their home on the deserted island of Kunfunadhoo in the Maldives in 1995 they had no idea that their intensely personal vision of a locally crafted villa and environmentally responsible lifestyle would form the basis of a successful collection of world-class hotels, resorts and spas. But that's exactly what happened. Soneva Fushi was the first 'castaway' resort in the Maldives, pioneering a trend for back-to-nature luxury holidays. It established a blueprint for a highly acclaimed international business, followed by spectacular Soneva Kiri on the unspoilt Thai island of Koh Kood in 2009. The success of the Soneva brand also paved the way for Six Senses Resorts and Spas with award-winning properties in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Under Eva's and Sonu's direction the Six Senses brand gained a global following before being sold in 2012. Today the Sonevas have many imitators, but no equals. Each Soneva - and a yachting experience, Soneva in Aqua - impresses on a wide range of levels. Breathtaking 'remote but accessible' natural locations, effortlessly chic accommodation, incredible food, truly memorable activities, an inspiring ethos of sustainability and service that is uncannily intuitive. The resort that set the tone and the standards for every subsequent resort. A jewel of an island - large by Maldives standards - with perfect beaches, a vibrant reef encircling the island, a colony of nesting turtles and its very own world class observatory. Located in the Baa Atoll, Maldives' only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi is blessed with extensive coral reefs and significant biodiversity including large concentrations of whale sharks, manta rays and marine turtles. The resort is perfect for romantic couple getaways, or family holidays as it provides unique experiences and activities for all, from diving and snorkelling with the marine biologist, to sandbank dinners and a children's den (playground). ... more   less
