Soneva Fushi can be found in the Baa Atoll, on the island of Kunfunadhoo, one of the largest islands in the Maldives.

There are so many highlights at Soneva Sushi we don't know where to begin but one of our favourites has to be the state-of-the-art observatory that guests can use. With so little light pollution in the Maldives the night skies truly are amazing and you can star through the lens of the enormous telescope to see so much more than you could ever imagine. Other favourite parts of the island are the open-air Cinema Paradiso, the chocolate and ice-cream rooms, the seemingly endless wine list and the countless dining options around the island.
Another completely unique attraction on the island is the floating villa 'Soneva in Aqua' that sets sail from Soneva Fushi and is home to an exceptional children's den, and even a glass gallery and boutique where guests can learn the art of glass blowing. This incredible 19 metre yacht is the epitome of buoyant chic.
The island is 1,400 metres long and 400 metres wide, one of the largest in the Maldives. It is set in a beautiful atoll and reached by a direct scenic 30-minute seaplane flight from Malé International airport. If you are arriving in the Maldives outside daylight hours then there are also domestic carrier flights to nearby Dharavandhoo airport from where Soneva will collect you by boat.
Children of all ages are welcome at Soneva Fushi and with the many varying villa sizes and an excellent kids club it is a fantastic option for families.
