Opened in 1995, Soneva Fushi has a growing reputation as one of the finest resorts in South and Southeast Asia. Soneva Fushi was the most exclusive resort in the Maldives when it opened on Kunfunadhoo Island, one of the farthest atolls from the capital, Male' and remains the favoured retreat for a legion of high-profile guests.
On its own private 100-acre island, the resort is some 60 nautical miles northwest of Malé International Airport. Guest transfers are by seaplane. The island has superb white sand beaches and rich coral reefs. The resort’s focus is on deep-sea diving and sea sports as well as being an exclusive hide-away and holistic spa.
Frequently described as the world’s most luxurious castaway island, Soneva Fushi was created to the exacting standards of British born entrepreneur Sonu Shivdasani and his Swedish wife, Eva, who opened it to suit their own impeccable taste - to the extent that they spend several months of the year here. Designed as the world’s first “Robinson Crusoe-style hideaway resort”, it was named Soneva after an amalgam of their own names, Sonu and Eva
