Soneva Fushi, Baa Atoll

This resort makes us feel like Robinson Crusoe - welcome to barefoot luxury! We think it’s absolutely amazing for families and we’d recommend staying on the sunrise side, as this is where the best beaches are located. There’s a great house reef for snorkeling as well.

Stay at Soneva Fushi

Snorkel around the house reef. Camp in a luxurious bedouin-inspired tent on the beach. Take a glassblowing class, where you will recycle used bottles into works of art. Learn how to track animals, and discover the names and stories of local trees and birds.It does not matter if you are enjoying a private vacation, or bringing the whole crowd of family and friends. Soneva Fushi has activities for all ages and tastes. This is an island retreat that enables guests to find their own slice of barefoot luxury in the Maldives. You can be romancing away, or exploring with a group of friends and private guide.


30 minutes by seaplane from Male, this is one of the country’s original Robinson Crusoe-style, barefoot island retreats.


Villas range from one to nine bedrooms and all are high spec. There are only 8 overwater villas, as part of Soneva’s commitment to protecting the fragile coral reef.

Who is it for
