The 26 atolls in the Maldives possess islands each of which is more magnificent than the other, making the archipelago an extremely popular luxury tourist destination. The pleasant all year round climate with temperatures rarely dropping below 26 degrees Celsius and the beauty of its landscapes are the principal qualities of the Maldives archipelago.
Baa, one of these atolls, located in the northwest, is famous for the tranquillity of its dozen or so islands and the charm of its luxury hotels. It is particularly popular with both beginning and veteran deep sea divers all of whom take advantage of the magnificent marine depths recently classified a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.
It’s here in the region of Hunifaru Bay that a great many whale sharks come during their mating season, and it’s here as well that we discover the world’s largest gathering of manta rays, a truly unforgettable sight!
In the Baa atoll, situated on Kunfunhadoo, one of the archipelago’s largest islands, the Soneva Fushi is a hotel designed for a Robinson Crusoe experience. As soon as they set foot on the island, guests are requested to remove their shoes since the hotel’s motto is “No shoes, no news.”
The Soneva Fushi proposes 57 luxury villas in the heart of a tropical jungle. Their simple but chic décor and their breathtaking views of the beach highlight the hotel’s dedication to nature and eco-responsibility. Intelligent luxury prevails with wood furniture made by local craftsmen, huge beds equipped with thin transparent mosquito nets, spacious bathrooms opening onto a charming little garden and a terrace facing the sea with a sofa for the guest to enjoy the view in total comfort.
For guests staying in the most luxurious villas, the Jungle Retreat is a veritable must! Mr. Friday, a private butler, serves as a guide through this lush jungle! And to live the adventure to the fullest, why not take advantage of the comfortable and exotic tree houses?
The hotel’s spa is an invitation to relaxing both the body and the mind. Treatments are carried out in a gentle, Zen like atmosphere accompanied by the soft sound of the cascading waters. For the taste buds, the hotel offers Mediterranean and Japanese cuisine, the finest cheeses and cold cuts or a barbecue accompanied by organic vegetables direct from the hotel’s garden. For lovers of fine wines, the Soneva Fushi’s incredible wine cellar and the wise counsel of the sommelier is highly recommended.
A veritable institution in the Maldives luxury hotel industry, the Soneva Fushi is the creation of an ambitious couple who fell in love with the archipelago. Their passion is obvious in this resort where serenity and comfort are the essential attributes and where the art of Zen and relaxation are the key elements.
The hotel possesses three small islets near the main island where guests can organize special events or unforgettable romantic dinners and feel as if they are alone in the world with just the horizon and the ocean for company….a truly enchanting moment!
