Pros: It was a perfect holiday for us! Everything was perfect, the food, our accomodation, the staff! We highly recommend this beautiful resort! We stayed in a beach villa with private pool! I think it was the best place we ever was! The beach was perfect, with a white sand and we could do snorkeling every day in front of our villa! It was very beautiful!

Pros: Everything! This place is a paradise! Amazing kind, responsive and positive staff, amazing activities, varied and delicious food. It was very clean (not only villas, but entire island). The communication is very nice via wthatsapp (no need to call or go to the reception for booking an excursion or ask something). The dive center and Aqua souls are amazing as well! One very important thing: there are no mosquitoes: the staff is taking care for that (as far as I know by natural ways like a smoke). The resort took care about everything (from taking you from the airport till return you on chick-in for your arrival flight). They organized everything and you don’t need to think for anything: just relax, enjoy and have fun!
Cons: that I had to leave 🙈😁

Pros: Had an amazing stay here, would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Maldives! We stayed in the water villa for 7 nights and would definitely say the water villa is worth it! Waking up to the sound of waves crashing is another level of relaxation! We were greeted by a Kudafushi representative on arrival at Malè airport and were taken to a lounge whilst we waited for our domestic flight. The representative directed us through until we boarded the domestic flight and guided us to the beautiful resort where we were welcomed by staff at Kudafushi! We were assigned a H.E.R.O who told us everything we needed to know for our stay including timings for meals and a map of the stunning island. Food: Loved the buffet style for all the meals and they had an amazing variety. Best part was that it was freshly grilled infront of you, chicken, lamb and many different types of fish! Staff were so friendly every time- always remembered our drinks order which for me, shows a particular care for customers! On one occasion, my husband and I didn’t have dessert and Urzu and another staff member (I didn’t catch her name) when we were asked about not getting dessert, we mentioned we only like chocolate cake and for dinner that evening the staff specifically came with 2 slices of chocolate cake, off the menu. Just one way in which the staff go above and beyond for their customers Anniversary: The staff made our anniversary definitely not one to forget! They decorated our room and brought out a cake to the restaurant. Housekeeping: Rooms were cleaned twice a day so cannot complain there! Surrounding areas around beach were broomed daily to consistently have everywhere looking pristine, even outdoors. Massage: My husband and I did a few treatments at the spa and we loved them! The massage was one of the best I’ve had, the scrub and wrap were very refreshing and facial left our skin feeling amazing!
Cons: Dislikes- none :)

Pros: The arrangements for picking-up from the Male airport and transporting us to the Resort, were meticulously planned and executed even though we arrived at almost midnight. Our beach villa with pool was so secluded that we felt as if we had the entire beach to ourselves. Perfect relaxation. Housekeeping was ever ready to come and clean the villa whenever requested. In general, the staff was super. Good quality and variety of food.

Pros: Hotel en una isla pequeña, pero paradisíaca. Las villas amplias y bien surtidas. La cama de matrimonio es amplia (el colchón quizá un poco duro). La habitación cuenta con TV con dispositivo inteligeo, pero nosotros no pudimos usarlo (no conseguimos instalar Netflix etc). El baño es exterior y perfecto, con dos duchas y bañera. Acceso directora la playa a través de un porche con ducha, pero con intimidad. Comida muy rica, variada. Fruta y pescado muy bueno. Cenas temáticas. Música en directo algunas noches. Hicimos submarinismo (caro pero bonito y bien hecho) y jet Sky, pero hay más actividades.
Cons: Hotel pequeño pero muy bonito. Caro. Y cuidado si no vas con el todo incluido y con los impuestos y gastos de gestión. También es caro llegar allí (solo en hidroavión o avión y barco). Las actividades tampoco son baratas, típico de los resorts de este tipo. Pero téngalo en mente y en su presupuesto

Pros: There staff is wonderful, easy communication, speak a good English, makes you life easier with all support. Before get there, it was a little more complicated, as my questions about the sea plane and everything else was not clear. However once you get in Male, everything is perfect. Transfer works really well and they always keep someone to assist you. They have 2 restaurants ( a Mediterranean and a Mexican ones) that is just amazing. The regular restaurant is just normal, but those other ones are really a great experience!
Cons: I had an unexpected issue on my bathroom. Water was dirty from de Boiler and it took one and half day to solve. I really didn`t want to go through this but they didn`t offer me other room. Unfortunately that was something really bad and they could have checked this before I get there.

Kudafushi is great - not as flashy as the newer resorts, but still very nice and reasonably priced!
Pros: Excellent, friendly customer service. Different dinner themes every night was fun. Snorkeling outing was great.
Cons: Not much to do on the island when the weather is bad. Outdoor showers and bathroom were a little inconvenient. Strange that Kudafushi's time zone is one hour off from the rest of the Maldives; confusing.

Pros: From the service staff to the manager, every single one of them was really needs oriented. For example, waiters and waitresses remembered the room numbers and the drinks of the previous evening - so you notice that each individual guest is taken care of. The small paradise is not one of the most expensive islands, but can easily compete with the big players. the richness and quality of the food, as well as the really well made cocktails were convincing. back at home you want to go straight back to kudafushi :)
Cons: complaining at the highest level: fridge could have a little more alcohol drinks and there could be more TV programs.

We just came back from the most wonderful stay at Kudafushi! The last two weeks were amazing and absolutely recommendable. It is a very nice island with loads of wonderful things to see and experience. The surrounding views and the house reef makes the location of the island perfect, you can get there by sea plane or domestic flight and speed boat. We can definitely recommend sea plane as an awesome experience. The island and villas are always cleaned up very nicely and make you feel good all along. The staff is so nice, lovely and helpful. They you communicate with reception via WhatsApp helps a lot. The food is wonderful and even within 2 weeks we had a lot of variations of the food which was very nice and we did not expect that. The fresh fruits were our highlight as you can always ask for your preferred fruit behind the counter 😉 We took two excursions with the own staff and they were so passionate and tried everything to make the days unforgettable! Thanks for taking us to the dolphins and mantas, we will never forget. The most awesome thing I can recommend are the wonderful yoga sessions with Aditi. They are soulful encounters for everyone, beginner or advanced, and we could create so many wonderful moments together, with rainbows in the background, laughing together to create good energy for the day and just breathing with breathtaking views on sunrise and sunset. Thank you all so much for everything!

Wir haben auf Kudafushi unsere Flitterwochen verbracht und waren mehr als begeistert. Unsere Erwartungen an die Insel wurden wirklich in allen Bereichen übertroffen. Schon die Abholung am Flughafen in Male war perfekt organisiert und der Transfer mit dem Wasserflugzeug lief einwandfrei. Angekommen auf Kudafushi wurden wir herzlichst in Empfang genommen und konnten den Check-In in wenigen Minuten abschliessen. Das Personal war zu jederzeit sehr freundlich, gut gelaunt und hilfsbereit. Ein Highlight war auch die Kommunikation mit der Rezeption über Whatsapp, die wahnsinnig gut und schnell funktioniert hat. Die Insel war zu jeder Tages und Nachtzeit sauber und aufgeräumt, sodass es nie ein Problem gab barfuß unterwegs zu sein. Auch den Zimmerservice, der zweimal täglich kam, können wir nur loben. Das Essen war super lecker, frisch und sehr abwechslungsreich mit täglich wechselnden Themenabenden. Wir haben die Möglichkeit einer Hochzeitszeremonie in Anspruch genommen und waren auch hiervon begeistert. Den Besuch des Spa Bereichs können wir ebenfalls nur empfehlen, die Mitarbeiterinnen sind wirklich Meisterinnen ihres Handwerks. Die 11 Tage sind wie im Flug vergangen und wir würden (und werden) die Insel jederzeit wieder besuchen! Vielen Dank für diese unvergessliche Reise Kudafushi!

Not enough words to describe the natural beauties around Kudafushi resort, the resort itself, the professional staff, the amazing diving center and staff, the exquisite and varied cuisine at the restaurant… The island is a diamond in the middle of the ocean, well repaired from strong winds thanks to its position into the atoll. The reef is lively and rich and already by snorkelling there is a lot to see. The rooms are very large and well equipped with all comforts including air conditioning. Beds are extremely comfortable. Each Villa has its own beach access and lots of privacy. The restaurant is just fantastic with all sorts of dishes from all over the world and truly never the same for the whole week we stayed. The ingredients are fresh and superbly prepared from breakfast to dinner. The diving center is very professionally run and the staff is friendly and well prepared/flexible. They certified both our kids open water and it was always fun and enjoyable. The sorrounding services also offered at male airport to help guests quickly getting through security and check in are really first class. Well done Kudafushi. You made our vacation memorable and we will surely come back soon.

Das Hotel war zu unserer Zeit nur zu 40% belegt. Wir sind mit dem Wasserflugzeug angereist, was wir auf jeden Fall empfehlen können! Nach nur 10 minütiger Wartezeit saßen wir schon im Wasserflugzeug und es war toll, die Atolle aus so geringer Höhe zu sehen. Wir hatten eine Strandvilla gebucht, waren auch sehr zufrieden damit (und würden wir auch jederzeit wieder buchen)! Allerdings hat es am 3. Tag sehr stark geregnet und Wasser ist in unsere Villa vom Dach auf den Schreibtisch getropft. Wir haben eine Handtuch untergelegt und uns hat es nicht gestört, doch das Hotel wollte das nicht und so wurde uns für die restlichen 10 Tage eine Wasservilla angeboten - und das ohne Aufpreis! Ganz toll, vielen Dank dafür! Die Unterwasserwelt ist toll und das Schnorcheln lohnt sich auf jeden Fall! Wir sind gerne vom Dive-Center zu unserer Wasservilla an der Riffkante entlang geschnorchelt und haben dort viele bunte Fische, 1 Schildkröte, (gar nicht so) kleine Haie sehen können. Das Bett war - trotz Topper - recht hart. Im Zimmer ist ein Adapter für die Steckdose vorhanden (Beachvilla), in der Wasservilla passten die Stecker ohne Adapter in die Dose. Der Kühlschrank wird täglich aufgefüllt (je 2 Fl. Bier, Cola, Fanta, Sprite), kl. Wasserkocher war vorhanden. Unser Bad war sehr groß, mit einem Doppel-Waschtisch, Zahnbürsten, Bademäntel, Shampoo, Duschgel, Conditioner vorhanden - ein Schminkspiegel mit Vergrößerung hat mir leider gefehlt. Das Bad in der Strandvilla war offen, daher sehr schwül und man war nach dem Duschen direkt wieder durchgeschwitzt. Aber es war toll, draußen unter freiem Himmel zu duschen. Eine große Whirlpool-Badewanne war ebenfalls vorhanden. Das Zimmer in der Wasservilla war allgemein moderner eingerichtet und hat uns besser gefallen. Die Dusche war riesig, auch offen gestaltet (keine Duschtür) und es gab ebenfalls eine Whirlpool-Badewanne. In der Strand-Villa wäre ein kleiner Tisch am Strand bei den Liegen noch "ganz nett", weil man so nichts abstellen konnte. Wir haben dann lieber auf der Veranda gesessen - auch weil wir hier die Flughunde beim Fressen in den Bäumen beobachten konnten. In beiden Villen fehlten mir ein oder zwei Haken, um Sachen aufzuhängen (z.B. Kulturbeutel im Badezimmer). Ein Bild an der Wand würde es auch noch etwas wohnlicher machen. Das gesamte Personal ist sehr nett! Liz macht tolle Omeletts und wusste nach dem 2. Tag schon, wie ich es gern esse, HH im Service und Priyanka - danke für die netten Gespräche, Mia, deine Massage war toll! Aber natürlich auch alle anderen: Vielen Dank für den tollen Service - vor dem Gast und im Hintergrund!! Empfehlung: Wenn etwas nicht passt, sollte man immer den Mund aufmachen! Das gesamte Personal ist IMMER bemüht, dass es dem Gast an nichts fehlt! Der Besuch in den Restaurants ist inkludiert (gratis), wenn man eine Wasservilla bewohnt. Eine vorherige Reservierung ist Pflicht und wir mussten uns auch schon bei der Reservierung für ein Menü entscheiden. Die Pizza im "Olive Me" muss allerdings extra bezahlt werden. Wir hatten das "Soft-AI" gebucht, da ich nie Alkohol trinke. Ob sich der Aufpreis von "Soft-AI" zu "mit Alkohol" rechnet, muss jeder selbst entscheiden (bei uns pro Person 800€ / 14 Tage). Jeden Mittag / Abend gab es ein anderes Thema /Schwerpunkt beim Essen und hat sich in 12 Tagen vor Ort auch nicht wiederholt. Toll! Da wurde live mit dem Wok gekocht, ein Dönerspieß, frische Burger + Hotdogs angeboten, immer Fisch und Fleisch frisch gebraten, Nudeln nach Wunsch zubereitet. Langweilig wurde es kulinarisch für uns nie und es hat uns immer gut geschmeckt. Getränke von der Juju-Bar dürfen NICHT mit in die Villa genommen werden und müssen vor Ort verzehrt werden. Wir hatten verschließbare, dichte Thermobecher dabei, die wir an der Bar befüllen ließen und haben so einen Cocktail zur Villa mitnehmen können. Nach 1 Woche wurden wir darauf angesprochen, dass dies nicht erlaubt sei (weil sich angeblich andere Gäste dadurch gestört fühlen?!?!) - und das kann ich absolut nicht nachvollziehen!

It was our honeymoon, 9 days at kudafushi. The island is really beautiful and I could see workers taking care of it daily. The beach, the sea, the pool, the restaurants are just amazing and for sure something that can be seen only at Maldives. Roberto and his team work hard to keep all the communication clear. The staff is always well dressed and kind all day. It is a resort with a light animation which points to relax and well being, for me it has been a bit too quiet and there were only few activities to make guests socialize. Kudos to Anoof and the entire team of waiters for their presence, seriousness and professionalism.

Отдыхали в сентябре 2023 года, наш состав: 2-е взрослых и 2-е деток( 6 месяцев и 3,5 года). Это наша первая поездка на Мальдивы и она была великолепной. Самое трудное - это добраться до острова. Мы летели из Москвы в Мале 2-мя самолётами с пересадкой в Дохе. Потом на кукурузнике до Ifuru airport, а дальше на скоростной лодке до самого острова Kudafushi. Надо отметить, что представители отеля на каждом этапе пересадок, начиная с Мале, скрашивали наше пребывание. Помогали с вещами и регистрацией на местный самолёт, пока мы отдыхали в бизнес-зале. Когда мы оказались на острове, нас встретила Таисия - это наш гид до конца поездки. Она единственная, кто разговаривает на русском из персонала. Читала про неё много положительных отзывов! Она действительно помогала нам во всех наших просьбах. Очень добрый и открытый человек! Спасибо ей огромное! После нас разместили в обычную 126 виллу. Некоторые пишут, что виллы и мебель в них старые. Да, мебель не новая, но и не разваливается. Всё функционирует хорошо! Из виллы можно сразу попасть на пляж. Так что, можно сказать, что у каждой виллы есть свой кусочек пляжа и океана. Песок чистый, вода в океане тоже чистая и прозрачная, мы взяли маску на прокат и каждый день плавали с ней, изучая подводный мир! Это было здорово. Мы были не в сезон, поэтому иногда шли дожди (в основном ночью), но они никак не мешали отдыху, а наоборот разбавляли его. В главном ресторане подают еду в виде шведского стола 3 раза в день, причём каждый день своя тематика. Мы были 11 дней и все 11 дней еда была разнообразной. Есть ещё 2 ресторана: мексиканский и рыбный, там заранее надо заказывать меню( для обычных вилл они платные), тоже очень понравились. Меню во всех 3-х ресторанах разнообразное: для тех, кто любит мясо, для тех, кто любит рыбу, для вегетарианцев и веганов, для деток. На территории отеля находится отличный спа, раз 5 туда ходила, особенно хочу отметить Мию, она внимательна до каждой мелочи и помогает расслабиться на все 100%. Приятным бонусом для нас было то, что в последние 3 дня нашего пребывания, нас переселили в 201 виллу с бассейном. Для деток это был отдельный праздник) На территории отеля так же есть детская площадка и детский клуб, в котором с детками играют и делают разные поделки. Так же есть много разных развлечений, связанных с водной тематикой. Ещё можно позаниматься йогой, поиграть в теннис, как настольный, так и большой, поиграть в футбол, есть спортивный зал. Каждый вечер в баре устраивают разные вечеринки. Персонал отеля очень доброжелателен и отзывчивый! На все наши просьбы реагировали быстро. Спасибо всему персоналу за такой чудесный отдых!!

Aufenthalt 25. August bis 07. September 2023 Es ist jetzt fast zwei Wochen her, dass wir zurück sind von den Malediven und es ist Zeit für eine Bewertung dieser wunderschönen Insel. Gestartet in Zürich und mit Qatar Airways über Doha nach Male geflogen, sind wir am frühen Vormittag gelandet und haben in der Lounge der Air Taxies auf den Transfer mit dem Wasserflugzeug gewartet. Der 45 minütige Flug mit dem Wasserflugzeug macht süchtig und ist echt ein Erlebnis. Die Begrüßung war freundlich und der erste Eindruck sehr gut. Unser Gästebetreuer hieß Davide. Er hat uns die ganzen 14 Tage mit tollen Tipps versorgt und bei Fragen bzw. Wünsche immer sehr zeitnah geholfen. Wir hatten zwei Beach Bungalows für uns und die Mädels (116/117) und waren mit der Lage und der Sauberkeit sehr zufrieden.Der Ausblick von unserer Terasse auf den Strand war traumhaft. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die Bettdekorationen und der Service von Miraaz. Ein toller Mensch und einfach nur fantastisch! Die gesamte Insel wird täglich von vielen fast unsichtbaren helfenden "Händen" gepflegt und selbst wenn es mal so richtig geregnet hat war kurz danach alles wieder "sauber". Das Hausriff bietet jedem Taucher und Schnorchler viel Abwechslung. Wir haben Haie, Stachelrochen, Schildkröten und viele tolle bunte Fische gesehen. Tipp: Bitte Abends unbedingt die beleuchtenden Stege besuchen! Das Main Restaurant, wo wir am häufigsten gegessen haben, bietet angefangen vom Frühstück, Mittagessen und Abendessen (Themenabende) abwechslungsreiches und gutes Essen. Der Service war sehr gut und immer sehr aufmerksam. An der Stelle viele liebe Grüße an Lis, die meist am Grill gearbeitet hat und die uns mit Ihrem Humor und Ihren Grillkünsten immer begeistert hat. Wir haben Ihr sogar ein wenig Schwäbisch beigebracht :-). In der JUJU Bar konnte man vor oder nach dem Abendessen tolle Drinks genießen und wer Lust hatte auf eine gute Pizza hat, ist in dem renovierten Restaurant Olive Me genau richtig. Beim Wasser Sport haben wir die Jet Skis ausprobiert und fanden die Preise fair. Die Mädels haben die Boutique immer wieder aufgesucht und sind auch fündig geworden. Das Spa war fantastisch und wir sind teilweise mehrfach dort gewesen um uns "verwöhnen" zu lassen. Das absolute Highligth und aus unserer Sicht und ein Muss sind die Schorchelausflüge mit Thanni und seinem Bruder. Der Ausflug zu den Mantas und den Schildkröten war fantastisch und wenn uns die Zeit nicht davongelaufen wäre, hätten wir den Ausflug zu den Delphinen auch noch gemacht. Thanni und Yambe vielen Dank für die tollen Bilder und Videos und Eure humorvolle und professionelle Begleitung! Nur so nebenbei: Kurz bei Antritt unseres Aufenthalts erwähnt, dass wir am Ende unseres Aufenthalt Hochzeitstag haben, wurden wir an diesem Tag im Main Restaurant und im Bungalow überrascht (Kuchen, leckere Köstlichkeiten und Champus). Da hat doch Davide sehr aufmerksam zugehört. Danke! Auch die ärztliche Versorgung meiner Frau nach einem Sturz war kostenfrei und hervorragend. Der Arzt war trotz Feierbabend sofort zur Stelle (er kann ja auch nicht so einfach von der Insel fortschwimmen) :-). Ein Dankeschön auch an den Manager Mohamed Jameel. Immer wieder hat er sehr aufmerksam gefragt, ob wir uns wohl fühlen und einem das Gefühl gegeben man gehört beim ersten Aufenthalt schon zur Kudafushi Familie. Leider war der Traum nach 14 Tagen zu Ende und wenn wir können werden wir wiederkommen. Eine Trauminsel, ein Traumteam!!! Familie Hofmann

Nous avons passé 5 jours magnifique dans cette île hôtel de Kudafushi pour notre Lune de miel. Des petites attentions sont faites pour ce type de voyage (massage offert, déco de chambre avec champagne..) Après un long périple pour s’y rendre une fois arrivé tout est super le cadre, le personnel et la propreté des lieux. Une île calme paradisiaque avec des activités variés. Un grand +++ à la proposition du buffet où vraiment on y mange super bien!

Wir waren als Familie Ende August/ Anfang September für 10 Tage auf Kudafushi. Wir hatten eine Wasservilla ohne Pool. Die Villen sind schön eingerichtet und klimatisiert. Highlight ist das nach außen offene Bad mit Outdoor-Dusche und natürlich die direkte Lage am Strand. Die Zimmer werden 1x pro Tag gereinigt und sind ausreichend sauber und gepflegt. Die Restaurants haben uns sehr gut gefallen und das Essen war klasse, beim Büfett im Hauptrestaurant ist immer für jeden etwas dabei. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und stets bemüht alle Anliegen und Wünsche zu erfüllen. Die Insel selber ist ein Traum und wer gerne schnorchelt ist hier genau richtig. Insgesamt ein toller Urlaub der uns sicherlich noch lange in Erinnerung bleiben wird.

Отдыхали в этом отеле 12 дней, в целом сам остров, персонал и самое главное это море понравилось! А вот гостишка немного подвела, отдыхал тут 6 лет назад и понимаю что номерной фонд сильно износился и за это время не было хорошего ремонта! Хотя ценник у гостиницы ниже не стал, а на оборот (стало дороже) Основной ресторан, шведский стол очень скромный, без излишеств но и каких либо интересных блюд и десертов, очень скромненько! Из развлечений все стандартно, снорклинг, дайвинг, рыбалка и все! Маловато, если вы приедете больше чем на 7 дней то становится скучновато. Персонал хороший, приветливый, доброжелательный, видно что с ними работают и постоянно муштруют. В целом впечатления хорошие в основном благодаря морю и белоснежному пляжу (но это заслуга самой природы) а вот человеческий фактор как всегда на 3ку

4,8 ⭐️ bei knapp 900 Bewertungen sind absolut gerechtfertigt!!! Wir wurden schon bei unserer Ankunft sehr herzlichen empfangen und dieser Eindruck bestätigt sich vom Roomservice bis zu den Kellnern. Über Sauberkeit und Comfort ist nicht zu reden, TOP 👌🏻! Die gesamte Anlage krönt das überragende feeling dieser wunderschönen Insel. Auch die Angebote sind sehr vielfältig, wir haben unseren Tauchschein gemacht und sind begeistert das die Unterwasserwelt genauso phänomenal ist wie oberhalb. Ein kleiner Hinweis für Menschen mit etwas schwächerem Magen, wäre sich in Form von Medikamenten und Augenmerk auf Essen (z.B. Salat…) und Trinken (Wasser, Eiswürfel…) drauf einzustellen. Definitiv ein Urlaub der etwas anderen Art und auch mit Kindern gut machbar - Traumhaft!!!

Ein Traumspot mit kristallklarem Wasser! Kudafushi ist eine kleine, sehr feine Insel (in 20 min. zu Fuß zu umrunden) mit schönem Sand, klarem Wasser und tollen Unterkünften (ausschließlich „Villen“). Wir hatten eine Beach-Villa mit unmittelbaren Zugang zum Strand und das Wasser direkt vor der Nase. Die Villa selbst war schön eingerichtet. Der Service in diesem Ressort lässt keine Wünsche übrig, das Essen selbst verdient aber nur vier Sterne. Tipp: unbedingt All Inclusive buchen, da die Getränke sonst den Urlaubspreis durch die Decke gehen lassen. Uns hat es außerordentlich gut gefallen, noch einmal werden wir aber nicht wiederkommen, dazu gibt es zu viele andere schöne Orte, die es zu entdecken gilt. Anmerkung: das Hausriff ist tot, wer bunte Korallen erwartet, wird enttäuscht werden! Die zwei Schwarzspitzenriffhaie und die Wasserschildkröte und auch die bunten Fische sind dennoch ein Erlebnis.

Was für eine schöne "Hotel" - Insel... Wir hatten die Villa 126 und haben einen separaten Pool nicht vermisst. An der Seite der Insel scheint (zumindest zu unserer Zeit im Juni/Juli) die etwas ruhigere Seite zu sein. Auch ist der Weg zum Restaurant angenehm kurz. Besonders hervorheben muss man das ausgesprochen freundliche Personal. Vom Zimmerservice übers Wassersport bis zum Restaurant. Alle sind durchweg sehr freundlich, aufmerksam und zuvorkommend. Die Anreise ist auf jeden Fall mit dem Wasserflugzeug zu empfehlen. Es besteht auch die Möglichkeit Innlandsflug/Speedboot aber davon haben andere Gäste abgeraten. Bei uns lief alles glatt. Also: Top Empfehlung für eine Location auf den Malediven.

Отдыхали здесь в июне 2 недели. Встретили нас с Аэропорта в Мале, и мы со старта начали ощущать гостеприимство отеля. Нас проводили в Уютный lounge. У нас был Доместик, но нас почему-то отправили на Гидроплане, позднее выяснилось, что это был бесплатный upgrade. Гидроплан определённо стоит попробовать, но одного раза достаточно. Очень жарко, громко и не комфортно. По прибытию нас сразу разместили, несмотря что мы прибыли раньше времени заселения. Расположение виллы нам понравилось, и мы всё время провели в ней. Номера уже подуставшие и в нашей вилле был стойкий запах сырости, даже стали просить поменять. Позже выяснилось, что воняли подушки, и они сразу начали намывать всё с каким-то парфюмом. Подушки поменяли. И самым большим разочарованием в этом отеле было, это матрасы, т.е. если спать просто на земле будет удобней. В общем ребята у кого проблемы с позвоночником готовьтесь )). После жалобы они постелили матрасик, но особо это не помогло. Убирают два раза в день. Номерной фонд максимум тянет на тройку. Даже не возникло желания пожить на водяной вилле, так как это тот же номер что и на пляже, но меньше по квадратуре и без открытого душа. А вот за кухню этот отель твёрдая 4ка. Мы были всегда в основном ресторане. Всегда разная тематика ужина. Итальянская тека где вкуснейшая паста. На завтраки супер блинчики. Обалденные омлеты. Много фруктов. Мороженное и сорбеты. Отдельно хочется отметить Lis, с теки где гриль. Очень общительна и среди массы людей всегда помнила наши имена и предпочтения. Именно такие люди формируют приятное впечатление о месте отдыха. И принципе в этом ресторане очень внимательный персонал. Всегда очень быстро убирают со стола, подносят напитки. Десерты вообще отдельная тема, просто лучше не подходить. Иначе помимо багажа повезёте +20кг в собственном весе😊. Кондитер прям молодец! И теперь о главном. Домашний риф не самый лучший что мы видели на Мальдивах, но минимум 4-5 часов плавали в день. Отель строит коралловые фермы, слева и справа от дайвинг центра увидите. К сожаленью в этом году повезло не очень часто была мутная вода. Вокруг острова есть спец. места для удобного входа на край рифа. Но самое классное место это на дайвинг центре. На пирсах всегда сидит персонал и мониторит. В первый день к нам подплыли дельфины. К концу недели часа два плавали с черепашкой. Акул было не много видели 3 вида, но не часто. Плавайте много и много увидите. Идеальное время с утра до 12. Было пару прецендентов, территория где бассейн и все дорожки к пирсам выложены досками. Они во многих местах очень дряхлые. Я лично около магазина с сувенирами провалился и ободрал кожу на ступне. Очень повезло что ничего не сломал. Менеджер извинился, вербально. И с этого дня начали менять тотально по всему острову чахлые доски. Не знаю совпадение или нет. Жена тоже очень сильно ударилась, прогуливаясь по пляжу и пытаясь переступить мешки с песком поскользнулась и упала. На острове есть врач. Нам оказали помощь, в номер принесли лёд. Так же спасибо Таисии, зато что помогала и пыталась помогать в наших предпочтениях и проблемах. она нас курировала весь отпуск. Отель твёрдая четвёрка и она безусловна благодаря Персоналу и Кухне. Однозначно отель буду советовать своим друзьям. Отдельно благодарность отелю за комфортный check out. Они разместили нас в lounge. Где мы уютненько провели время до самолёта. Кто хочет посмотреть подробней напишите в поиске на ютюб BUSSEL. Это наши влоги

Kudafushi is an exceptionally beautiful resort and truly feels like paradise on earth. We stayed 5 nights in the water villa with pool for our honeymoon and absolutely loved it. Villas were very spacious with excellent air conditioning and were kept very clean. Staff were wonderful and very professional, they were always at hand and polite. The food was delicious and had a lot of variety with a different cuisine theme everyday. Beaches were kept clean by very hardworking staff. There was plenty of marine life to see and many activities available to do. We would like to thank the whole team at Kudafushi who made our stay so special and feel so blissful, this includes the front of house staff and staff working behind the scenes. We would definitely recommend the soft all-inclusive package to all, which included a wide variety of refreshing non alcoholic drinks to chose from. Thank you Kudafushi for a wonderful stay!

Kudafushi is a beautiful resort where we spent our honeymoon in May. THE VILLA 5/5 We stayed in a water villa. The room was big, quiet and had all the comforts. Good cleanliness level. The sea in front of the house is amazing. Surprisingly, the bathroom is the only part of the house without air conditioning. THE DRINKS 4/5 We had the all inclusive formula. The non-alcoholic offering is big, with lot of fruit cocktails. The alcoholic offering, unfortunately, is a bit limited. Some international cocktails (e.g. Mojito) are chargeable. THE FOOD 3/5 The resort has 3 restaurant, the main (north) included in the All inclusive, a Mexican and a Mediterranean, nice for celebrating special events or romantic dinners. The quality of the food in the main restaurant is ok: the local grilled fish is really good and fresh, however the offering is more or less the same every day. The lowest level for us was the Japanese theme dinner, when we got stomachache and the end of the dinner. DIVING AND EXCURSIONS 5/5 This is probably the best part of the holiday. The diving and snorkeling experience at Maldives are worth the ticket. I recommend in particular the diving experience and the snorkeling in the close island. The prices of the different experiences, however, are very high: make sure to check how much they costs you (incl. 26% taxes) before booking, to avoid unexpected bills at the end of the holiday. I really recommend to bring masks and snorkels from home since the renting cost is “just” 6 $/day plus taxes. This was a bit disappointing for us, but we had no choice. THE STAFF 5/5 Most of the personnel is really nice and professional: everyone salutes you in the resort. Honorable mentions: Roberto, our Turisanda Guide, Zian from the Main restaurant, Hussain from the Sea Edge (sunset) bar, Thanni from the Excursions. They were really friendly and warming with us. OVERALL EXPERIENCE 5/5 Even if there is for sure room for improvement, the Kudafushi restort offered us a 5 star honeymoon we will never forget. Thank you.

Ich bin kein Freund von langen ausführlichen Dankesreden aber zu kudafushi kann ich nur sagen: wer einen schönen und erholsamen Traumurlaub machen möchte der sollte unbedingt auf diese Insel gehen! Der Service is mega du hast immer das Gefühl du bist ein "ehrengast" und das essen ist für den Preis mehr als Ausreichend! Die Insel an sich ist klein aber sehr sauber und gepflegt und selbst wenn man gerne Sport macht steht ein kleiner aber feiner Fitnessraum zu Verfügung. Wir waren zum 2ten mal da und wenn es nicht so teuer und der Flug nicht immer so anstrengend wäre, dann auch gerne jedes Jahr! Vielen vielen Dank an alle Mitarbeiter dort sie haben uns einen super Urlaub ermöglicht! Mfg Markus

Riguardo agli alberi che non ci sono noi col vs personale abbiamo parlato di palme che non ci sono non di alberi, tanto e vero che in altre isole ci sono le palme che fungono da ombrelloni.....per quello che riguarda i 60 dollari di tasse che non abbiamo pagato quelli te li sei già presi 360 euro in anticipo per una stanza senza vista che comunque nonostante un down grade non mi avete rimborsato. Anzi le vs efficienti impiegate ci hanno fatto firmare una rinuncia quindi ho già pagato e di più per stare male .Forse siamo noi che le possiamo chiedere dei soldi.

My wife and I spent eight nights at Kudafushi Resort & Spa and we were thrilled to find that our expectations were exceeded. This was not our first trip to the Maldives, so we had a previous experience to compare it with. Here are the reasons why we loved the resort: * A representative from the resort greeted us directly at the airport and helped us with everything we needed until we boarded the local flight for transfer. * The transfer was fast and efficient once it started. We were transferred with a domestic flight (Ifuru) and a speedboat from the resort was ready to pick us up. * We were upgraded to a Beach Villa with Pool. The best part was that nobody bragged or made us feel obligated to do anything because of the upgrade. It was a genuine surprise to us. * The AC in the room worked perfectly, and we had no issues with the temperature. * The room was spacious and provided maximum privacy. Our villa's backyard could not be seen from the beach by anyone else, which made us feel more comfortable. * The beaches were cleaned multiple times per day, creating a more comfortable environment for guests. * There was enough time allocated for each meal, so we did not feel rushed while eating. * The resort used WhatsApp to communicate with guests, which was really convenient. Any issue could be addressed by the resort in a matter of minutes without waiting times. * We wanted to fly our drone and the resort's policy was accommodating. We only had to ask for permission, and they guided us on how to do it without affecting anyone's privacy. We could fly, but we had to respect others, which we appreciated. * The house reef was full of marine life. We saw many species of fish, eagle rays, stingrays, baby sharks, stonefish, turtles, octopuses, dolphins (one day they came close to the reef), eels, and more. * Snorkeling was very enjoyable, with easy access to the reef, even when the tide was low. * There was plenty of life on the island, not just in the water. We admired the fox bats, birds, geckos, lizards, and other creatures. * We had plenty of options for sports (tennis, football, gym). * Nobody pressured us to buy anything, and we received information about activities every day via WhatsApp. * The staff was friendly, and we did not experience any inappropriate behavior. We especially appreciated the efforts of Davide, HH, and Xen, who did their best to ensure we enjoyed our vacation. The staff was experienced and tried to make our vacation better. They even helped us with two special requests that were not their responsibility. * Check-out was easy, and we were offered the opportunity to spend some time on the beach and extend our All-Inclusive package until we had to leave for the seaplane. There were no extra costs. * The resort was spotless, and we received twice-daily housekeeping visits. Once a day is enough, but it was good to know that the resort is committed to cleanliness. Other things that might be an issue for some people (but were just fine for us) were: * The WIFI internet is filtered, which limits the use of video streaming services or apps that consume traffic. * The food was good and we always found something we liked, but it wasn't as diverse as other resorts in the Maldives. It was tasty but sometimes lacked variety. * The resort operates on a different time zone than Male, which can be confusing (it's one hour ahead). Once you get used to it, it's not a problem. * There are two types of all-inclusive packages, and one does not include alcoholic beverages. This was not an issue for us since we were informed when we booked our trip, but it's important for others to know so they're not surprised by additional charges. * Due to erosion, a part of the beach is protected by barriers. If you don't like this and you get a villa there, it might be inconvenient. However, given that we're in the middle of the ocean, it's understandable that erosion can occur. Overall, our experience was exceptional, and we would definitely return to Kudafushi if given the chance. Thank you for organizing our stay so warmly.

Unbelievable and amazing in every way. From the moment you’re whisked away to the private airport lounge on arrival to the return journey in the Soneva fleet of seaplanes, this place exudes class, service and luxury. I’ve stayed at many 5 star hotels, but Soneva is an experience. Travelling with children as a single parent can be nerve racking, but from the moment we arrived to our room, we were made to feel like royalty. Our 3000 square foot pool villa on the beach was simply stunning, but not in the sort of pretentious way that so many luxury resorts can be. There was rustic furniture, Maldivian colours and an air of authenticity that no marble-heavy Ritz or Baglioni can match. Kids were free to run, free to serve themselves from the chocolate and ice cream rooms, free to ask for an extra smoothie, free to dine at the grown up tables and free to Be. The snorkeling was unbelievable. The kids club was huge, absolutely gorgeous and kept the kids more than entertained for 10 days. From the Sommelier, Charles, who seems to find you no matter where you’re dining, to the bartenders who remember your drinks order from the night before, the servers who won’t say no to asking for an extra breakfast smoothie, to the astronomers who map out constellations for your kids after dinner, to the manager who hands you a book light when he catches you struggling with sodoku in the dim of the night… Soneva is everything they say it is. The setting is magical, the people are wonderful. Did I even mention the sustainability efforts they make on the island to support this fairytale? Sonu and Eva should be so proud. They’ve literally created paradise on earth in paradise. What service, what class, what luxury. Thank you for everything. We’ll be back.

We just returned from another amazing time on Soneva Fushi. So lovely to see again many of the folks we know from our former stays. Pastry legend Shanta, chef Ravi from Down to Earth, Ravi from the Tandoori grill and his collegue (Nashid?), also our barefoot guardian Chelsea. Not to forget Majeed from Mihiree, he was so dedicated during breakfast and dinner time. Also, villa host Sonja was very attentive, our bath room was always niceley scented, I loved it! We stayed again in one of the new Crusoe Suites. The villas are really impressive with the high-ceiling wooden entrance door. Nice to have coral-friendly sun lotion and Aloe Vera gel on top of the usual things in the villa. The outdoor area comes with loungers, tables, a swing and extra hammock plus an additional lounge area on the upper deck which is ideal on rainy days. Anyway, still missing the added garden shower which the old categories featured. That was always a very unique feel standing under the open sky amidst the lush greenery. As usual, new constructions are going on and many larger villas are in the making. Also the former entry-levels will be upgraded. Hope the last remaining Soneva Fushi Villa (should be #33) will not be demolished for some nostalgia reasons, even if we never stayed there. Food-wise, it’s really top notch. I am very into the lunch buffet, luckily this time it was open every day due to the temporarily closure of Out of the Blue. The choice of ceviche, tartare, different salads, vegetables, mezze, sushi/sashimi and so on is simply perfect. For the first time we tried Shades of Green with the plant-based dishes and it was also a great experience. Sandbank cocktails on Tuesday are always fabulous, also the subsequent buffet. Yet, on Saturdays it would be good to have an alternative outlet to be open, not only the buffet option. 2 times per week only the buffet is a bit limiting in terms of exploring different venues, especially if you only stay a few days like we do. Vegan is on the way, not only in terms of milk and butter, as well consequently now also in the ice-cream parlour. It tastes surprisingly nice! Once again Eva‘s cheesecake was not on offer unfortunately, as it is one of my favourite flavours. I think the next time I need to pre-order 😉. One thing to mention regarding all outlets: I really value all those real candles which are placed allover. It creates a warm and cosy atmosphere during the night-time, that‘s simply classy. The only flaw food/beverage-wise are the challenging prices. Of course for the active ones there is a big bunch of things to do, especially in terms of water sports with some interesting gadgets like eSurf-board. Wellness lovers have plenty of holistic options in the huge Soul temple and the kids‘ club is simply outstanding. We spent our days riding through the stunning jungle, snorkelling, strolling along the beaches, and sipping some afternoon cocktail at cosy Out of the Sea. As we already tried some experiences like breakfast on the sandbank, castaway picnic, cinema paradiso, ziplining (hubby only) on other stays, this time we were pretty lazy, recreation-mode on! Soneva is undoubtfully a wonderful place to unwind on an ultra-relaxed level 😊.

We stayed at Soneva Fushi for a week. The island felt very private. There was little interaction between hotel guests and it never felt busy at any part of the island. The food was AMAZING. My favorite place by no means was In The Garden restaurant. The ambience, the service, and the food was beyond fantastic. My favorite dish was scallops and risotto. We also enjoyed interacting with somelje Nikita, he looked after us throughout the whole week. The ice cream, chocolate and wine rooms were a great option to have when feeling peckish. Be ready to put on some weight as those treats are irresistible. Soneva Fushi is great for kids of slightly older age when they can cycle and swim by themselves. We had a newborn and it was tricky getting across the island as we would be forced to call for a buggy (waiting times sometimes stretched to 30-40min) and the ride can be rather bumpy especially right after the rain. The beach was very clean, and there were some great Snorkeling spots at Out Of The Blue (on the left side). Other than that, most of the corals around the island were dead. The island itself is usually quiet, however if you are having dinner at By The Sea restaurant, you will hear the sound of prayers coming from the neighbouring local island. There was also some construction sound on our last day as some new villas were being built and old ones renovated. There are a few reasons for giving soneva 4 stars and not 5: 1)Firstly, our initial villa cleaner was quite an unpleasant, moody lady. She would walk into our bedroom without knocking (even when she would see us changing or me breastfeeding the baby) . She would also approach us while we were relaxing and ask us to stand up as she "had to change towels", wouldn't leave water bottles near our beds etc... I have never experienced this at any other Maldives resort and Soneva is our 7th. 2) Secondly, it appears that different rules apply to different people. Once, we asked a buggy driver to pick up our kids from Out Of The Blue overwater restaurant because the overwater bridge was too hot to walk on. The buggy driver refused because the ressort's rules don't allow them to do so. However, we saw another driver transporting a team of Russian travel agents to the same restaurant with no issues (P. S. All members of the Russian agent team were physically healthy) .... On a different instance we were taken to this beautiful sand bank to watch the sunset and enjoy drinks etc.. There were two spa ladies offering massages to hotel guests. I was eager to try it hence I joined the queue. Before me was an older man enjoying feet/ leg massage. When my turn came, I also asked for the feet massage however I was refused 😅. Apparently the man before me was a "special guest". What an awkward situation... 3) Thirdly, when we arrived to the hotel, we were given a leaflet of available activities that we could do while at the resort. One of them was meeting the SPA team and exploring the facilities, learning more about treatments etc.. When we arrived to the SPA on dedicated hour we found only one person there. They gave a short brief on the spa menu. He didn't show any spa rooms nor there were any other SPA team members to talk to. Again, quite an awkward experience. Other than that, we loved Soneva. Not sure if we would come back, but it was a fun week filled with great food and even better wine.

Soneva Fushi in the Maldivian Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve has been on my bucket for twenty years. This natural treasure is a nature's paradise of aquamarine waters, powder white sand and lush jungle. We fly in over dreamscape oceans to be greeted by our White Lotus esque barefoot guardians and the rest of the world slips away. We are in heaven and it is everything I always dreamt it to be. Snorkeling, surfing and scuba diving in crystal clear, aquamarine waters, a high-speed slippery dip into the sea, a panoramic cinema under the stars, an observatory complete with visiting astronomer (we saw Saturn - for real, I spent three midnights planet gazing) and actual real-life bunny rabbits. In our hearts forever more.

Me and my family stayed here for 7 nights and we hade a fantastic family holiday. The Island It´s a naturaly beautiful island with beautiful beaches around most of the island. It´s a big island but the bikes makes it easy to get around. The roads on the island are a bit busy with lots of buggies, transport vehicles and workers using so you wont get the sense of a private paradise island. The sunrise side has the best beach and nicest view and the sunset side has best snorkeling but a realy bad view agaisnt the local island. Crusoe Suite We stayed in a Crusoe Suite on the sunrise side and the villa is nothing shorter than phenomenal. It feels like you are in a huge jungle villa and very private. In fact you cannot see the villas due to dense foliage. We hade a big pool and nice outdoor area. Restaurant and bars The bars and restaurant were just wonderful. There is a huge amount of food to choose from and you also have acess to free icecream, cheese and chocolate. The service was top notch. Excursions There is a wide choice of actavities and excursions but it´s quite expensive. We were on a snorkeling tour to Turtle point wich was nice. We tried, two times, to go to Hanifaru bay but unfortunately no mantas was seen so the tour got canceled. Snorkeling We are keen snorkelers and this is not the strongest point for the island. There was quite an abundant of fish but the corals and diversity not as good as on other islands. The sunset side offers the best snorkeling. Overall a fantastic holiday with the family but the size of the island, view of local island and the snorkeling are importants factors for us that doesnt fullfill our full needs.

Hotelbericht Soneva Fushi Baa-Atoll Ein Paradies im Paradies Buchung: Die Buchung des Hotels habe ich über Michaela Reisser via Airtours vorgenommen. Gebucht haben wir 5 Nächte Robinson Crusoe Suite with Pool und 5 Nächte One Bedroom Over Water Retreat with Slide. Die Verpflegungsart war für die 10 Nächte Halbpension. Die Kosten sind über die Webseite von Soneva und/oder Airtours ersichtlich und für ein Resort dieser Güte hoch. Zur Hauptsaison im Januar/Februar liegen diese im mittleren 5-stelligen Bereich, in der günstigeren Nebenzeit deutlich darunter. Anreise: Angereist sind wir mit Qatar von Düsseldorf aus, die Flüge habe ich, wie immer, selber gebucht und alle Vorteile des Platinum Status genossen. Im Platinum Status bei QR ist so z.B. die Sitzplatzreservierung im Preis enthalten, was bei Business Class Buchungen ohne Status nicht enthalten ist. Das empfinde ich als ziemlich grenzwertig. Ferner kann man mit einem Business Class Ticket und dem Platinum Status mit einem Gast jeweils in die Al Sawfa Lounge in DOH rein. Zusätzlich gibt es Lounge-Voucher, die für Freunde eingesetzt werden können. Mittels Avios habe ich die Hin- und Rückflüge von DOH-MLE-DOH auf First Class upgegradet. Hier muss man wissen, dass für unsere Flüge die Cathay Maschinen (B773) eingesetzt wurden, die First mit deren verbauten Sitzen und der herzliche Service an Board sind auf einem Level mit z.B. Emirates in der B773. Eigentlich sollte es direkt von MLE mit dem Soneva Wasserflugzeug für uns weitergehen, hier hat Airtours leider keinen guten Job gemacht und hat die Buchung vergessen, so dass wir auf einen Domestic Flight mit Manta Air ausweichen mussten, um nach Soneva zu gelangen. Die Mehrkosten für den Wasserflieger werden demnächst zurückerstattet. Der Flug mit Manta Air war gut. Das hat uns besser gefallen, als mit Maldivian Airlines, die wir schon ein paar Mal erlebt haben. von der Flughafen Insel Dharavandhoo ging es dann 15 min. mit dem Soneva Speedboat ins Resort. Check-in: Der Check-in verläuft direkt in der Villa durch den persönlichen Barefoot Guardian (unserer heißt Latheef) und man wird vom Jetty direkt in die Villa gebracht. Ein kurzer Scan vom Reisepass und schon geht der Urlaub los. Kalte Handtücher und Welcome-Drinks gibt es direkt auf dem Speedboat und/oder am Jetty je nach Anreiseart. Villa/Housekeeping Robinson Crusoe Suite: Die Villa 16 liegt direkt an dem ruhigen und feinsandigen Strand der Sonnenaufgangsseite, unweit vom Jetty und vom „Hauptrestaurant“. Die Villa war/ist in einem tadellosen Zustand. Es werden laufend Renovierungen an den Villen vorgenommen und man merkt ihnen ihr Alter nicht an. Wenn ich z.B. Soneva mit dem Pullman vergleiche, sieht man im Pullman bereits nach 3 Jahren massive Gebrauchsspuren am Mobiliar. Auf Soneva sind alle Möbel massiv und in einem perfekten Zustand. Zur Villa an sich: man betritt die Villa über das riesige hölzerne Deck und öffnet die fast 7 Meter große Tür, was an sich schon beeindruckend ist. Zur rechten Seite hat man eine Wohnlounge im Boden versenkt, zur linken Seite die Treppe, welche nach oben führt und eine kleine Küche. Kaffee, Wasser (Still und Sprudel) gibt es kostenlos, ebenfalls gibt es diverse Teesorten zur Verwendung. Alle weiteren Artikel in der Küche (Spirituosen, Nüsse, Säfte etc.) sind aufpreispflichtig. Ein sehr großes Bad mit großer Dusche, Doppelwaschtisch, Toilette und Außenbereich rundet das Erdgeschoss ab. Alle Materialien sind hochwertig und aus Naturholz. Im Obergeschoss der Villa befindet sich das Schlafzimmer mit einem gemütlichen Doppelbett, einer separaten Toilette und einem Balkon im Außenbereich. Der Pool im Garten ist sehr groß, angenehm temperiert und mit Salzwasser gefüllt. Die Liegen im Garten/Strand sind ebenfalls sehr gemütlich und man mehrere Stunden auf ihren verbringen, ohne Rückenschmerzen zu bekommen. Zusätzlich gibt es eine riesige Lounge-Area unter der Überdachung, was gerade bei schlechtem Wetter perfekt war/ist. Villa/Housekeeping One bedroom over water retreat with slide: Mehr geht nicht für eine Wasservilla. Die 8 Villen liegen an einem eigenen Abschnitt auf der Insel und man erreicht sie über einen geschwungenen Holzsteg. Beim Betreten der Villa blickt man durch das Wohnzimmer direkt auf den Indischen Ozean. Die Türen können dann bei Belieben komplett zur Seite geöffnet werden. Ein riesiger Glasfußboden im Wohnzimmer befindet sich direkt unter dem Tisch. Eine sehr nette Toilette mit ebenfalls kleinem Glasboden lädt für gemütliche Minuten ein. Ein kleines Büro und eine Küche sind direkt vom Wohnzimmer aus begehbar und voll ausgestattet. Weiter kommt man ins Schlafzimmer, in welchem das Dach mittels Knopfdruck zur Seite gefahren werden kann. Das sehr große Badezimmer mit Innen- und Außenbereich ist sehr schön gestaltet und eingerichtet. Eine separate Ankleide ist ebenfalls vorhanden, genau Stauraum ist bei 585 qm Grundfläche ebenfalls vorhanden. Das riesige Pooldeck mit Salzwasserpool ist ein Traum, ebenfalls die Wasserrutsche und die Dachterrasse. Strände im Hotel/Vegetation Die Insel kann bei Flut nicht vollständig umrundet werden, da die Vegetation an einigen Stellen bis ans Wasser reicht. Der Sand ist feinsandig und nur an kleinsten Stellen von angeschwemmten Korallenstücken versehen, diese kann man jedoch an der Hand abzählen, sofern man das möchte. Der Tidenhub beträgt bei Vollmond ca. 70 cm. Die Vegetation ist traumhaft auf der Insel und sehr ursprünglich mit Banyan Trees, Sträuchern, Palmen und viel Unterholz. Überall laufen kleine Kaninchen, Hühner, Geckos herum, diverse Vogelarten nisten ebenfalls auf der Insel. Alle Wege können barfuß begangen werden, bedingt durch heftigen Regen kann es an der ein- oder anderen Stelle zu Auswaschungen kommen, diese werden direkt durch die Gärtner wieder ausgebessert und aufgefüllt. Frühstück: Frühstück gibt es von 7-10:30 Uhr jeden Morgen im Haupt-Restaurant. Bei gutem Wetter sitzt man barfuß im Sand unter schönen Palmen oder am Strand und bei Regen überdacht an der Bar/im Restaurant. Das Frühstücksbuffet lässt keine Wünsche offen, die angebotenen Speisen sind vorzüglich und von höchster Qualität. Frisch gemachte Smoothies mit täglich wechselndem Angebot, frisch gepresste Säfte, welche man direkt an der Gemüsetheke auf Wunsch sich zusammenstellen lassen kann, frisch angemachter Joghurt, frisches Obst, eine große Auswahl an frischem Brot von Graubrot bis hin zu Gebäck. Es gibt diverse hochwertige Käsesorten, Schinken, Fisch und frisches Gemüse. Kornflakes, frische Säfte, selbst gemachte Marmeladen und Eierspeisen auf Wunsch runden das Gesamtpaket ab. Zudem gibt es Dim Sum, Sushi, asiatisches und indisches Frühstück. Und wer dann immer noch hungrig sein sollte, kann sich weitere Dinge zubereiten lassen. Es gibt wirklich nichts, was es nicht gibt. Der Service ist vorbildlich und sehr aufmerksam. Mittagessen: eine umfangreiche Mittagskarte (a la carte) mit einer großen Auswahl an leckeren Gerichten lässt einem das Wasser im Mund zusammenlaufen. Wir haben einen Tag im Room-Service eine Pizza bestellt, die sehr lecker war und frisch aus dem eigenen Pizzaofen kam. Ansonsten haben wir kein Mittagessen zu uns genommen. Abendessen Restaurant Down to earth: Man sitzt sehr gemütlich bei gutem Wetter am Strand oder unter der Überdachung ebenfalls mit den Füßen im Sand. Es gibt 2x die Woche ein Themenbuffet (Asian Market oder Around the world in unserem Fall). Alle Speisen sind vorzüglich, von absoluter Spitzenqualität, werden frisch vor dem Gast zubereitet oder laufend aufgefüllt. Die Speisen a la carte sind ebenfalls herausragend, liebevoll zubereitet und von bester Qualität. Die Preise sind ohne Halbpension im hohen Segment angesiedelt und in meinen Augen teilweise überzogen. Ein Beispiel: eine Cola und eine Flasche Mineralwasser im Restaurant zusammen: 34 USD. Puh, hier ist Optimierungspotenzial gegeben. Abendessen Restaurant Out of the sea: Man sitzt am Ende des Jetties auf der Sunset-Seite in einem kleinen Restaurant und blickt auf die einheimische Insel. Der Service ist ebenfalls herausragend, die Speisekarte ein Traum und die Qualität der Produkte über alle Zweifel erhaben. Eine offene Showküche rundet das Gesamtpaket ab. Abendessen Restaurant Fresh in the Garden: Man erreicht das Restaurant über eine kleine Hängebrücke oder alternativ über eine Treppe und sitzt dann in den Baumwipfeln im Garten. Der Service war hier anfänglich etwas unstrukturiert und wir hatten eine längere Wartezeit. Man hat sich aber sofort entschuldigt und uns kostenlose Cocktails angeboten. Auch hier waren die Speisen ebenfalls beeindruckend, die Portionen jedoch etwas zu klein. Abendessen Restaurant Shades of Green: Das Restaurant liegt im eigenen Gemüsegarten, der liebevoll angelegt ist und eine riesige Auswahl an Kräutern und Gemüse beinhaltet. Inmitten der tropischen Vegetation gibt es eine offene Show-Küche, die vom Chef de Cuisine „K“ mit absolutem Engagement betrieben wird. Der intime und herzliche Service war super. Das gereichte 6 Gang Menü war so lecker, dass man selbst als nicht veganer Mensch absolut kein Fleisch oder Fisch vermisst hat. Das war mit Abstand das beste vegane Essen, was wir jemals zu uns genommen haben. Perfekt! Das Restaurant „Out of the Blue“ war während unseres Aufenthaltes weg. Renovierung leider geschlossen und „Flying Sauces“, das man über die Zipline erreicht, haben wir nicht probiert. Schokoladen-/Eis-Raum Häppchen-Raum: Man kann sich zu jeder Zeit kostenlos im Schokoladen-Raum (So Guilty) an ca. 50 unterschiedlichen Schokoladensorten bedienen, die Schokolade wird eigens auf der Insel hergestellt. Ferner kann man sich an über 30 unterschiedlichen Eissorten mit süßen Toppings bedienen (So Cool), zusätzlich kann man sich zu jeder Zeit an frischem Obst und Käse und Schinken nebst diversen Brotsorten bedienen. Alle Speisen waren ebenfalls von außerordentlicher Qualität und Frische. Ruhe und Erholung: Das Resort verfügt über 72 Villen, die entweder für 2 Personen ausgelegt sind oder bis zu 9 Schlafzimmer je nach Größe belegt werden können. Jede Villa hat sein eigenes Grundstück und jede Villa verfügt über einen eigenen Pool und je nach gebuchter Kategorie Sonnenaufgang oder Sonnenuntergangsseite. Hier hat man seine absolute Ruhe und wird eigentlich nur durch den Reisepartner oder durch die zwitschernden Vögel unterhalten. Management/Mitarbeitende: Der GM und/oder seine Stellvertretung ist omnipräsent und erkundigt sich laufend nach dem Wohlbefinden, ein längerer oder kürzerer Plausch ist jederzeit mit allen Angestellten möglich. Besonders hervorzuheben sind unsere uns zugewiesenen Ansprechpartner im Restaurant Sameer und Susi und unser Barefoot Guardian Latheef. Wir haben uns teilweise sehr lange mit ihnen privat unterhalten und die drei sind die freundlichsten Mitarbeitenden, die wir weltweit kennenlernen durften. Alle anderen Mitarbeitenden sind ebenfalls herausragend und immer für einen Scherz zu haben. Das Besondere an Soneva ist, dass hier extrem viel für die Mitarbeitenden gemacht wird und eine über allen Maßen herausragende Mitarbeitermotivation zu bemerken ist. Alle sind sehr stolz darauf, hier arbeiten zu dürfen und das merkt man zu jeder Zeit. Beeindruckend! Was ebenfalls beeindruckend ist, wie die Stringenz von Soneva in allen Details durchgezogen wird: der Claim von Soneva „Ever Soneva - So xxx“ prangt auf vielen Dingen (Boote, Wäsche-Beutel etc.), der Spirit von Nachhaltigkeit und Umweltbewusstsein ist beeindruckend. Viele Projekte zur Wahrung der Flora und Fauna laufen hier parallel und im Einklang zusammen. Man ist eigentlich kein Gast in irgendeinem Hotel, sondern ein Teil der Soneva-Philosophie, sobald man diese Traumdestination betritt. Unternehmungen SPA: Das eigene SPA liegt in der Inselmitte, ist traumhaft schön angelegt und wird von diversen Therapeuten für alle Belange bedient. Hier liegt nicht nur der Fokus auf Massagen, sondern auf gesundheitliche Ganzkörper-Therapie. Die Preise für Behandlungen sind hochpreisig, die gebuchten Leistungen waren toll und entspannend. Unternehmungen Hanifaru Bay/Mantas: Für uns das persönliche Highlight des Urlaubes in Bezug auf Naturerlebnisse: bedingt durch prognostizierten Regen hatten alle anderen gebuchten Gäste abgesagt, daher waren wir alleine mit unseren 2 Guides und 2 Skippern auf der eigenen Soneva Yacht. Nach 20 Minuten Fahrt erreicht man Hanifaru Bay. Der Schnorchelausflug wurde durch die beiden Guides perfekt begleitet, man fühlte sich zu jeder Zeit sicher und sehr gut aufgehoben. Viele Manta-Rochen und ein Walhai machten die Unternehmung perfekt. Auf der Rückfahrt wurde frisches Obst, Gebäck und Getränke gereinigt, zuvor wurden Sicherheitsunterweisungen gegeben, die Taucherbrillen gereinigt und vieles mehr. Sonstige Unternehmungen: Ferner gibt es zwei Tennisplätze, ein Paddle-Tennisplatz, ein Gym, ein Jungle-Gym, jedem Gast steht ein Fahrrad oder Trike zur Verfügung, mit dem die Insel erkundet werden kann. Schnorchel-Equipment gibt es ebenfalls kostenlos, zudem wird nicht motorisierter Wassersport kostenlos angeboten. Fazit: Soneva war immer ein Traum von mir und dieser Traum hat sich erfüllt und zwar über meine Erwartungen hinweg. Werden wir wiederkommen - für uns ein klares Ja!

This was our third trip to Soneva Fushi. It's a very special place for us as we visited it twice during covid where we got to know many of the staff and it feels like home. Within a few hours of arriving, we could feel our stress levels going down. Having not visited the island last year, it was astonishing how quickly we managed to familiarise ourselves with the island. Having visited many islands in the Maldives, Soneva is unlike any other island as it feels like a tropical jungle on a tiny speck of land in the Indian ocean. A large percentage of the visitors are repeat quests, and I can see why, as it's so laid back. The staff at SF makes the experience unlike any that we have had in the Maldives as we now know the names of various people. There are many resorts that claim to be eco-friendly, ss it in vogue, but this has been in Soneva DNA from inception from recycling through to usage of organic produce. The restaurants are superb given that you are in the middle of nowhere, but the quality of the restaurants is as good as any michelin star establishment. A special thank you to both chefs Ravi and Suresh who have once again looked after after us tremendously. We no longer use the menus, but trust them to make us something that never disappoints. Sadly, Out of the Blue closed for refurbishment after our arrival, which was a shame as that is where we normally spend the bulk of our day. I can go on about tye various restaurants, but it's all been said, suffice to say standards are high. Whilst we would return again to SF, there were some issues this time that disappointed us. We were surprised to find cockroaches in the bathroom. Initially, we assumed they were gecko's hut upon closer inspection they were indeed cockroaches, which I mentioned go our barefoot butler who said they would come and fumigate. A few days later, we spotted more and once again mentioned to our butler who nonchalantly said that they exist in this climate. We were never given an option of a change in the villa or being that concerned. When we visited in 2020, we were told that the villas on the sunset side of the island would be renovated. The villas have a certain Robinson Crusoe charm but are now in need of some TLC, given that they are ageing quite rapidly. The technology is dated with numerous switches, and it was a hit and miss exercise trying to find which switch controlled, which light. It could take 5 minutes trying to switch the light off in the pm. In the time we visited SF since 2020, there has been 4 GM with one interim GM, Charles Moris, who we met as he was leaving. The new GM had taken over prior to our arrival and in the whole 2 weeks of us being there, he never came up to any guests to introduce himself. We had met Abhishek and Eddie as they would always be present and met Abhishek again as he happened to be on the Island, who now is the group GM. We were told the new GM happened to have an FB background, having worked at some top end restaurants. Not that it made a difference to our experience at SF, but would have been good to point out some of our issues. Despite this, we will return to SF in the coming year. A special thank you to Ravi, Suresh, Inti, John, Adam, suzzie (dive centre), all the marine biologists for keeping us safe at Hanifaru and the numerous people that we can't remember the names not to forget the people behind the scenes.

Soneva Fushi has been one of the most luxurious eco-resorts I have ever visited. I went Soneva Fushi with a girl friend and we had the best time enjoy the water sports and dining experience on the island. We stayed at one of the over the water villas, and it has enormous. Each villa has its own water slide, and our in-villa infinity pool is massive. The ceiling of the villa can be opened by just one click. It's the best way to wake up in the morning and star gazing at night. The service on the island were mostly tailored and personalized.

My first ever experience with Soneva was at Soneva Fushi! As soon as we got off the seaplane, our barefoot guardian Umar came to greet us. From welcoming to goodbye, he made sure everything of our stay was warm like home, super helpful in all aspects (5 STAR!). All the food we have are all ultimate tastes and experiences, whether it is biking into Fresh in the Garden or zip lining to Flying Saucers. 

Fushi island excels in all aspects: it offers a blend of professional, discreet, and thoughtful service from all staff members, situated on a pristine natural island with an eco-friendly aesthetic. The lush, jungle-covered island adds to its beauty, complemented by outstanding cuisine and stunning villa accommodations. LASTLY, I made a few trips back to the ICE CREAM ROOM! Hehe!

My partner and I began our honeymoon at Soneva Fushi, and it was an experience that exceeded our wildest dreams. From the moment we arrived, the friendly staff made us feel incredibly welcome. Our barefoot butler was attentive, thoughtful, and incredibly sweet, adding a personal touch to our stay. The island itself is a paradise, offering a wide range of activities. A particular highlight for us was the guided snorkelling around the island and the thrilling tree ziplining. The island's landscape, a blend of lush forest and pristine beaches, was perfect for exploring. The presence of adorable rabbits living freely on the island was a delightful surprise. The diving sites around the island are breathtaking, with a wide range of aquatic life to witness. We were also impressed by the diverse food and beverage options. The buffet breakfast was a daily treat, offering a wide selection of healthy and delicious food. Our beachfront villa provided us with privacy while also offering convenient access to the beach. To fully experience everything the island has to offer, we would recommend a stay of at least 3 days. We can't wait to return to Soneva Fushi. It truly was a dream come true.

After 7 previous visits to Soneva Fushi (the last in 2015) we decided to take our family for a weeks holiday. We and they loved the Island. The range and quality of facilities and available activities has dramatically expanded and improved since our last visit. We all (including our grandchildren) had a memorable trip. The stay at Soneva Fushi is not cheap but we consider it to be value for money. The wonderful staff enhance the trip and the food is wonderful.

Soneva Fushi is truly heaven on earth! The resort is one of the few which, in my opinion, outdoes its own marketing! Far surpasses the expectations created on the website and compared to other resorts. Pristine Island, quality experience! The ownership, management and staff only add to the magical aura of authentic, warm, soulful #SlowLife. Words cannot adequately describe the end to end breathtaking experience we had. Soneva Fushi will certainly be a staple of our holidays going forward. You'll be met at Malé Airport itself and personally escorted to your connecting domestic leg. And from Dharavandoo, you'll be personally met by your assigned Barefoot Guardian!

This is the 5th resort we visited in the Maldives. It is no question that Sovena Fushi is one of the best resorts in the Maldives. Our barefoot guardian BB is very impressive and competent (5 stars). He has been helpful in many aspects. Majek (i am sorry for not being able to spell his name correctly) who works in Mihiree Mithaa and Down to the Earth, is wonderful. He remembered our preferences about food and drinks.

As I sit here on another holiday my mind reflects back to the magic of Soneva Fushi. We had previously been to Soneva Kiri but this was far more incredible. There is a ‘no news, no shoes’ policy and a huge effort has been placed towards sustainability. This is apparent throughout the island but has been thought through so intricately and luxury still rests at its finest. The management is outstanding. Pjey and Ranjit are there every breakfast talking to all the guests. They are always available and no situation is left without ultimate guest satisfaction. Food on the island is fab. Our favourite restaurant was Fresh in the Garden where you can see the efforts put into their local produce. Food at the Flying saucers was disappointing but the zip line was a lovely experience. The ice cream room was my children’s favourite as was the fruit room at breakfast. My daughter went on a bubble diving experience with Fabio and he was delightful. That was her highlight of the trip. Sadly, we didn’t get to see the Manta rays and will be back to do this. Snorkelling was brilliant - we saw an abundance of fish and turtles. The resort is also keen on conserving the coral and they really involve the guests in their projects. Our room initially faced another island and we expressed our upset. Our magnificent host, Christina, immediately attended to this and we were switched to another villa. The villas whilst rustic are super luxurious. We had the best holiday at Soneva Fushi and it is by far our favourite. A huge thanks to Christina for taking care of us so effortlessly and always with the most gorgeous smile. A massive thanks to Pjey too for a seamless and gorgeous holiday.

Soneva Fushi’s villas are surrounded by numerous coral reefs and clear waters. Villas are available in both land and water styles. This time I stayed in a two-story island-style villa, and I experienced going out to sea to find dolphins. It was the first time I had seen so many dolphins swimming together. The whole journey is very exciting! The resort can play the Zip Line Experience, which has 9 different zip lines. You can fly over the tropical forest of Orchard Island and be accompanied by a coach all the way. So far, I like Soneva Fushi's restaurant and food the most. It is located next to the beach, where you can see the beautiful sunset and listen to the sound of the waves. It is a rare experience in life!

Die Anreise auf Soneva Fushi allein ist schon unglaublich, da von außen die wundervolle Natur auf der Insel deutlich wird. Sie ist die größte Malediven-Insel, die ich bis jetzt kennengelernt habe, daher habe ich dort das Fahrrad zu schätzen gelernt. Mich fasziniert die Gradwanderung zwischen Naturschutz/Ökologie und Luxus, die auf der Insel wirklich sehr gut gelingt. Sehr großen Eindruck hat Soneva Soul bei mir hinterlassen. Hier kann man aus so unglaublich vielen Anwendungen und Behandlungen auswählen, auch ideal für Menschen, die wieder "auf die Füße" kommen müssen. Das Essen war sehr gut, mein Favorit war jedoch das klitzekleine Shades of Green, das mitten im Gemüse- und Kräutergarten liegt. Einer der Bewerter jammert, weil es Moskitos gibt. Ich kenne keine Malediven-Insel, auf der es keine Moskitos gibt. Jede Insel sprüht regelmäßig und ein klein wenig Mückenschutz sollte eigentlich immer dabei sein. Dafür dürfen wir auf solch wundervollen tropischen Inseln Urlaub machen. Auch das große Engagement, das Sonu und das gesamte Team für das Atoll, das Biosphärenreservat, die Korallen, die Nachhaltigkeit und die umliegende Bevölkerung aufbringt, ist für mich sehr beeindruckend und beachtenswert. Ich habe den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und hoffe, dass ich diese Insel noch einmal besuchen kann.

We spent 7 nights at Soneva Fushi in mid July as part of a split stay itinerary with another resort in Baa atoll. between day trips and weeklong stays, soneva is approximately the 25th resort island that we have visited in the maldives over the last 9 years. i can say that our stay at fushi was overall outstanding despite some areas of improvement that require attention. ive outlined what we loved, what needs to be improved, and what in my opinion one needs to be mindful of prior to booking a stay at fushi: ***areas of excellence*** (1) the island. soneva fushi is one of the few (potentially only) islands in the maldives that we have visited the has a proper soul. this is not your dainty & cutesy little island that you can walk around in 5 minutes (in fact, i dont suggest you walk around as the pathways inside the island are much more conducive to biking than they are to walking). you can tell that this island has a history, has been lived in, and has been and continues to be loved. the vegetation everywhere is remarkable and you really feel like you are in a tropical jungle paradise. it is easily the most beautiful island i’ve been to in the maldives. (2) the sunrise beaches. i was a bit skeptical of the beaches at fushi prior to visiting but this “skepticalness” ended up being totally unfounded. the beaches at soneva are wonderful, especially on the sunrise side. during our stay, we found that there was hardly any erosion anywhere on the island, and especially on the sunrise side which benefitted from some of the most expansive and fully sandy beaches ive come across in the maldives. the color of the water is a stunning baby blue and the seafloor is free from any rubble. i do not think that soneva has the BEST beaches or lagoon in the maldives (it is not comparable to even some less expensive places such as conrad or como cocoa, for example, which have much more expansive lagoons and beaches), but with so many of the new 6* islands in the maldives resorting to either tons of groynes or artificialness all together, soneva probably offers some of the best beaches in the 6* segment. (3) the design. a big reason we decided to visit soneva fushi was our love for their ex-sister property six senses laamu which we have visited twice. everyone told us that fushi was the “bigger & better” version of six senses in terms of design. and nothing to deny here! the design at soneva fushi is captivating and just more evolved than at six senses. there have been quite a few resort chains that have tried to emulate / copy what eva has been able to design but none have successfully been able to do so. every corner of the island felt take - almost fairytale-like. that is the best word i can use to describe the design here. it is - by far - my favorite design of any hotel chain the maldives and realistically probably in the entire world too. (4) the villa. this might be a hot take since not everyone loves rustic, but i truly believe soneva fushi has the best villas in the maldives. they are magical in every way. we stayed in a sunrise facing crusoe suite (#22) and it is an amazing hard product with an incredibly scenic bathroom. everything everyone else has written about this villa is true so i will not bore you with minute deatails. i will, however, say that not all villas in this category are created equal and i would avoid, if you can, 21 & 22, since they are objectively less private than any of the other crusoe suites. since we were given a comp. upgrade to this room, 22 fit our needs just fine, however if i were paying rack rates i would push for something like 16, 17, or 30. All rooms at soneva are different from each other (e.g., 30 is super private and set back, whereas 16 and 17 have much larger pools, bathrooms, outdoor deck area, and more vegetation…. but all these villas, including 21 and 22, are all the same price). so definitely get the best bang for your buck by doing your research and selecting the room that works best for you. we also had a chance to spend a few hours taking pictures in the overwater villas and, again, just no words. the villas are totally amazing and more like mansions than anything else. i do think that soneva fushi needs to be experienced on land and therefore would not recommend staying overwater, but it’s hard to deny that these rooms are nothing short of magnificent! (5) our barefoot guardian, anna. anna was one of the sweetest and kindest butlers we have ever had in the maldives. she was always super responsive on WhatsApp and on our last night organized a very special table for us at fresh in the graden. she is a huge asset to the team and a wonderful barefoot guardian. thanks anna for making our holiday so special! (6) the food (especially fresh in the garden). the food at fushi is of a very high standard. we had a chance to dine everywhere and we did not have a bad experience at any of the restaurants. the service was always of a very high standard (shoutout to teddy at fresh in the garden at kombucha k at shades of green for making our dining experiences so wonderful). moreover, we loved that the HB at fushi is FULLY dine around with no credit limitations at most restaurants. and when there is a credit, that credit is over $200pp so you can actually enjoy a nice meal even at out of the sea for example. the food rooms (chocolate, cheese, cold cut, ice cream, etc.) are also a huge asset for guests. we went to these rooms multiple times per day and they are so well stocked. they effectively make the need for full board negligible (that is, as long as you are ok eating said things for lunch which we were). ***areas of improvement*** (1) the reservations team (apologies if this long but i really need to highlight just how much improvement this team needs). if i had to give soneva just one piece of feedback, this would be it. to be honest, the reservations team at soneva fushi might be the most disappointing team ive come across in the maldives and especially in relation to how much a stay at soneva fushi costs. this is a big issue since they were my first point of contact at soneva and led to some pretty disappointing interactions. let me give you 3 examples of where the team really acted below my expectations which admittedly were not high to begin with as i have yet to find an “excellent” reservations team in the maldives… but this was particularly bad: - when i had booked our stay back in october 2022, i inquired about the cost to upgrade from a sunset facing crusoe villa to a sunrise facing crusoe suite. as a first price, the team proposed a completely unreasonable $1,000 p/n surcharge to upgrade from the crusoe villa to the crusoe suite. this was particularly unreasonable as we were contemplating visiting fushi just last year in the 2022 low season, and the price we were quoted at the time(by the same person, BTW) a much reasonable $250 p/n. after an unnecessary amount of back and forth, the team so graciously offered to compromise on $500 a night (despite 7 out of 7 crusoe suites still available at the time of request). when i contested this again, the response of the team leader was “Please note that a special exception I might have made last year may not be valid for all future requests”… im sorry but what kind of a response is that especially since it’s not like they were low on inventory?!? it honestly felt like negotiating at the flea market so i just dropped it as clearly they were not interested. the team did grant us an upgrade on arrival, but i presume this was more due to the fact that they are not selling the room category that we originally booked more than (Charles the GM mentioned that the crusoe villas and soneva fushi villa suites are out of commission currently)! - in november of 2022, the maldives government decided to increase the GST from 12% to 16% for all 2023 stays. we come to the maldives A LOT and in 2023 alone we will visit 8 resorts. admittedly each resort handled this GST increase differently - some resorts generously decided to absorb the cost on behalf of their guests (not soneva), while others did not and gave the customer the option to either take on the cost OR pre pay for their stay by EOY to avoid the increase. whether passing it onto the consumer was the right or wrong thing to do, those that passed it on emailed me with several weeks of advance notice so that i could get the payment sorted out. soneva, on the other hand, sent me an email on the 24th of december demanding payment by the 29th of december in order to keep the booking at our current price (thats 5 business days during a week where nobody works). at the time i was on vacation abroad with my family, with limited access to wifi and phone. i was planning on doing a wire transfer but my bank in my home country was unwilling to process the payment in due time given the holiday period. after an unnecessary amount of emails and stress, the team agreed to settle and absorb the cost on our behalf but the emails the team sent came thru with such sense of entitlement and lack of empathy that i nearly canceled my holiday here altogether. the cherry on top is that at one point they stopped responding since most of the team was on vacation for the holidays (go figure!!!!). - when we arrived on the island, the res team had no record of the castaway picnic which was included as part of our booking. thankfully, i still had the email excerpt of where they had committed to including the castaway picnic otherwise i do not think they would have honored it since anna informed us that the team did not have any of this on file… poor organization…. as you can see, overall really REALLY poor (and FYI i would have rated this as poor even if staying at a 3* property which fushi is clearly not). THANKFULLY, this is a stark comparison to the customer service that one actually experiences on the island. so my advice to management… please check up on your reservations team and improve your communication to your clients… (2) staff handling loud families. i know this is a bit of a touchy subject as i was also a child once and i understand that children are full of energy. however, during our stay, there were certain families that repeatedly acted in a way that was just a disruption for so many people. during one of the buffet nights, there were hoards of children running around chasing crabs in the sand disturbing many other guests and couples who were i can only imagine hoping to dine in peace. on several mornings, we had to leave breakfast early because families were being so loud (one day the entire family started screaming and imitating the noise of the crows and the staff members did not intervene or stop them). after bringing it to the teams attention they were mindful about where they seated us, but really, this should not be happening in the first place at a resort like soneva where the ethos is all around tranquility and being grounded with nature and relaxation (the team takes your shoes off as soon as you arrive for a reason!). (3) the mandatory 2x weekly buffets. i dont believe that any guest coming to soneva is paying 1-2k per night on the low end to be forced to eat at a buffet twice a week. i understand that in villa dining is an alternative to the buffet, but i personally also do not come all the way to the maldives to eat in my villa especially when soneva has some of the most scenic restaurants ive ever seen . further, i spoke to several employees who agree that buffets night are utter chaos and are just a pain to set up and orchestrate. so why does soneva keep doing them or forcing them if quite a few people done enjoy them? (4) crusoe suite density. if soneva decides to build more crusoe suites especially on the sunset side, these suites should be built further apart from one another. while i loved the villa itself, the positioning of the villas is so very close to each other especially in comparison to some of the older, more historic one bedroom villas that exist on the island. so much of the island remains undeveloped it seems a bit counterintuitive to sandwich the suites so close to one another……… ***areas of mindfulness*** (1) the sunset side. eydhafushi is unfortunately forever going to be a problem for anyone seeking total seclusion. while it is not the most unsightly local island i have come across in the maldives (himaafushi at gili or maafushi at cocoa are much worse, IMO), it is the most intrusive one i have come across that is not in the male atolls. this is an important distinction to make because soneva is a seaplane flight from male, which entails more effort to get to and with this extra effort lots of people might expect for the resort to be totally secluded. not the case here at all. i think that while this is not fully under the control of soneva, i am sure that soneva has some influence with how “aesthetically pleasing” eydhafushi might be when looking onto it from the sunset side & out of the blue. this includes speaking to the city council and potentially suggest planting more palm trees and vegetation on the side of eydhafushi that faces soneva so that rooms that face the sunset side do not feel like they are staring at a small city with tons of lights at night (yes, you can see car lights moving as well). (2) ongoing construction. soneva is always evolving so at any given time there there will be a lot of construction (especially on the sunrise side these days). they have demolished the few legacy soneva fushi villas that remained on the sunrise side and are in the process of building some mega 6-8 bed mansions as part of the villa ownership program. this construction, in our case, did not impact the tranquility of our stay, however there is a lot of “movement” (for lack of a better term) of staff members and building materials all around the island. you also do hear the occasional hammer or electric tool when walking around, but not in the villas (or that was the case in our experience at least). (3) soneva is expensive. i know this is one of the top properties in the maldives, but some things are just really unreasonably priced (like 3 pieces of sushi at out of the blue for 40++ if not on HB… as one example of many). or house water at 12++ per bottle when you’re already paying at least 1.5k p/n to be there. it can feel a bit money-grabby at times. and soneva is only going to get more expensive moving forward since the entry level crusoe villas and soneva fushi villa suites are no longer going to be sold, making the buy in price for soneva somewhere around $12-14k per week in low season, assuming they use the same pricing structure as this year for the crusoe suites. we loved our stay but i am not sure we loved it so much to commit to a 5-figure low season 7 night stay each year so TBD as to when we will ultimately return in the short run. overall……. despite what might seem like quite a few areas of improvement, i can say that soneva is one of the best places we have stayed in the maldives. it if were slightly more affordable, it is a resort that we would 100% come back to year over year or even on every visit to the maldives. unfortunately (or fortunately!) we visit several islands per year, so we need to budget accordingly and not every year will have room for soneva. Soneva is an island that i can wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxed 5* experience as it encompasses everything that the maldives should be - understated but luxurious and most importantly NATURAL. for those seeking a once in a lifetime holiday - book this place, you wont be disappointed.

It was our first visit to Soneva Fushi after 10 other high end resorts in the Maldives. Soneva Fushi stands out by its unique Robinson Crusoe style, sustainability efforts, excellent culture and high level of hospitality. The resort is pretty exceptional in everything: professional unobtrusive yet attentive and caring service by everyone, natural island, eco friendly style, beautiful jungly island, great food, amazing villas. We had high expectations of Soneva Fushi and picked it for celebrating a significant birthday for a good reason, but the team’s generosity surpassed our expectations by quite a bit. The whole team and their genuine care of their guests goes far beyond good standard service. Even with weather trying to spoil our grand birthday plans, the team managed to ensure a very special day and memorable celebration. Villas and island: the most beautiful jungly island we’ve been to. Eco friendly, sustainable, natural island with powdery soft beaches and see floor, wild bunnies running around, beautiful banyan trees mixed with palm trees… it all contributes to your deserted island feel. Each villa is different yet beautiful, comfortable and exclusive, and many are simply jar-dropping :) Team: our guardian, Ali, was probably the best butler we’ve had in the Maldives. Impressive young man with high emotional intelligence, very professional, yet humble and respectful at the same time. Breakfast team (Sameer, Hamdhaan, Majudee), Out of the Blue service host Shafeeq, chef Gede - thank you for your amazing food and service. Food: we dined at Out of the Blue, Mihiree Mithaa for breakfast and shoreline dinner, Down to Earth, and had private birthday dinner. The amount and quality of food is amazing. All outlets were more than great with Out of the Blue being exceptional. We visited Soneva Fushi during school holidays and had a number of large families with lots of babies and young children, so keep in mind that the resort can be quite family friendly. The resort was also pretty impressive with departure - the weather was rough (seaplanes were grounded and most resorts had to bring their guests to the airport early). Soneva kept our scheduled departure and did a great job chartering us to domestic airport through rough seas. Soneva Fushi is truly Maldives at its best. It is definitely a strong 6* resort and is worth the high price. Definitely a place we’ll return to (but probably only in high season and outside of school holidays).

We have been to Soneva Fushi 5 times so it is hard to write too much about this amazing resort. Let me say that it gets better every time and there is always someting new. This time we were blown away by Aqua Terra. Many resorts do similar to SF but no one (IMO) does it nearly as well. The service is outstanding , the food incredible. The quality is amazing. For example most reosrt do fruit but no one does it like Soneva Fushi - the qulaity is amazing. Most maldives resorts have amazing service but SF is above and beyond. You only have to mention something is not 100% and they make sure it is 200%. Let me just say this is by far our favourite resort in the Maldives. If I was told I could only have one holiday for the rest of my life - the place it would be is Soneva Fushi. It just gets better and better. Thank you so much we turely love Soneva Fushi We also had barefood butler Chiristina who is amazing but so are all the staff. Already cannot wait to return.
