Overview

Location

Soneva Fushi is located on the island of Kunfunadhoo in Baa Atoll, one of the largest islands in the Maldives. The resort can be reached by a scenic 30 minute seaplane flight direct from Malé International Airport or a 20 minute domestic flight to Dharavandhoo followed by a 12 minute speedboat ride.

Arrival Experience and Airport Greeters

The Soneva experience begins the moment you arrive at Male's Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. You will be greeted by Soneva's private airport representative and escorted to our private seaplane lounge, located a short eight minute drive from the airport. After being served light refreshments in the lounge, we will escort you onto the waiting seaplane where our team will meet you upon arrival at Soneva Fushi.

Evening Fishing at Soneva Fushi

Evening Fishing at Soneva Fushi

Arguably the oldest profession in the Maldives, fishing is one of the most relaxing activities for the busy traveler. Those who might rank themselves as talented fishermen with a sixth sense for good fishing spots would find it a worthy challenge to test the plentiful waters of the Indian Ocean for an impressive catch. Heading out in the boat just before the sun sets is a chance to enjoy the spectacular
natural scenery, stunning sunsets and rich underwater life of the Maldives, while enjoying some canapes and cool beverages to make the experience even more unforgettable. Our captain will take you to secret spots known for big game yet away from the reef to avoid causing any damage.
The crew can provide assistance to fishing enthusiasts of all levels, and can also teach the basics of fishing with a simple line and a sharp hook. A maximum of two fish per person can be kept, while all others caught must be released back into the ocean. For those lucky enough to bring back a sizable catch, a meal featuring the fruits of your labor will be prepared by the chefs at the resort.

Snorkel with Manta Rays

Join us as we search for the enigmatic, graceful, inquisitive and charismatic Manta Rays in the waters of the Baa Atoll. If the conditions are right, we 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. There are also several other locations close to Soneva Fushi where Manta sightings are common, so the exact itinerary of the trip may vary to maximize the chance of seeing these magnificent creatures. If Mantas cannot be seen on the trip, the Marine Biologists will lead an underwater discovery tour to showcase the stunning scenery of the marine life in the Baa Atoll.

Guided Snorkelling with our Marine Biologist:
Accompany our resident marine biologist on a guided snorkelling trip to one of the spectacular reefs found in the Baa Atoll. They will guide you through the reefs and introduce you to the various species of marine life. You may also be lucky enough to encounter beautiful sea turtles and manta rays, which are common in this area of the Maldives.

The Wine Cellar

We believe the mark of any great home is a fantastic wine cellar. As we built Soneva Fushi as our island home (yes it was our personal Robinson Crusoe hideaway before we expanded the "estate" to host guests), we made sure to create a cave that rivalled the world"s finest wine collections.

The collection: rare champagnes, grand cru clarets, vintage cognacs, organic and biodynamic wines. Before any dinner, our sommelier would be happy to descend with you to the subterranean wine cellar and show you around our collection of 7,000 bottles as he helps you pick your evening"s selection.
