Where else in the world can you find a nine-bedroom beach-front private villa to inspire a lifetime of rare experiences and make memories with family and friends?

Soneva Fushi’s capacious nine-bedroom, 5540-square-metre beachfront retreat, the Private Reserve is what dream homes are made of. Here, barefoot luxury is woven together poetically by palm-frond roofs, woven ropes and tree-branch banisters. Barefoot luxury is curated and redefined within the airy, white-washed walls of this private retreat.

At the heart of the sizeable swimming pool, an expansive sunken deck places you in the midst of nature’s playground. Indulge in a spa experience, sauna and steam or stay energised at the gym, without leaving your forested mansion. Entertain guests and host family dinners at the sunken deck, gaze out at the lush tropical surrounds from the villa’s multiple private balconies, or spend the day unwinding in and around the lagoon-style pool.

Stepping just metres outside the palatial estate-like villa, onto white sand and onto your own private beach, you can snorkel with dolphins, vibrantly coloured tropical fish, and turtles close enough to touch in crystal clear azure waters.

In 1995, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani pioneered the concept of barefoot luxury on their private island resort, Soneva Fushi in the Maldives. They focused on providing exemplary service in beautiful surroundings, with a focus on sustainable yet ultra-luxurious accommodation. Two decades on, the resort still operates on this Robinson Crusoe ethos. Returning guests expect— and find— luxurious simplicity and intuitive service, facilitated by Mr and Ms Friday butlers, who know what you want before you want it. 

Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 61 spacious beachfront villas, ranging from one to nine bedrooms, hidden among dense foliage, and located within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Everything about this magical place feels otherworldly, from the crystal-clear turquoise water and dolphins at sunset, to the delicious meals available at the resort’s multiple dining venues. Nature is nurtured at this beautiful resort, from the sustainable design and furnishings of the villas, through to the operations and waste-to-wealth centre, which truly defines the essence of barefoot ‘intelligent luxury’.

Watch classic movies at the outdoor Cinema Paradiso. Unwind at the on-site Six Senses Spa or in the spa-room of your private villa.  Choose from nine different dining options, five hundred wines and 11 types of pillow. Nature’s resources are transformed into art at the Glass Studio, while The Den, the largest and most spectacular kind club in the southern hemisphere, gives children the freedom to live their island dream. The enormous children’s wonderland includes two swimming pools, waterslides, a pirate ship, a Lego room, music room, a movie theatre, and much more.

Glorious days are spent star-gazing at the Observatory or sampling organic delicacies at the restaurants. Dine overwater at one of five restaurants at the new Out of the Blue dining destination, or deep in the jungle at Fresh in the Garden. Opportunities to venture beyond the island include cruises, picnics on private sandbank or deserted islands, breathtaking diving, or fascinating cultural visits to nearby islands. Soneva Fushi is the ultimate pioneer of memory-making experiences.

If the experiences are magical, the philosophy is simple: no news, no shoes. No pretensions either. 

The nine-bedroom Private Reserve Villa provides private dedicated nannies room; a dedicated Mr or Ms Friday (Soneva’s personal butlers); in-villa spa including steam room, sauna and massage room, open-air bathtub attached to the master bedroom, open-air garden bathrooms with oversized bathtubs and showers, all the latest wifi sound, audiovisual and apple technology, direct access to private beach, lagoon style pool, guest TV lounge, and indoor and outdoor sitting and dining areas. 

Singapore Airlines flies from Australia via Singapore to Male Airport, from there Soneva Fushi is a 30-minute seaplane ride.
