The ultimate luxury island mansion on an oceanic scale; the largest private residence at the 5* Soneva Resort in the Maldives complete with nine spacious bedrooms, an expansive swimming pool with sunken dining area and its own private waterslide.
Located on the sunrise side of the island, close to Dolphin Beach, the property offers views over the Indian Ocean and direct access onto the pristine white sand beach. With a built area of approximately 2,600 sqm (28,000 sq ft) and a plot size of around 5,540 sqm (circa 1.37 acres), it’s the perfect holiday home for large families or for those wanting to share the experience with friends. Spa, exercise, sauna and steam without having to leave the confines of this forested mansion. The sunken dining area is ideal for hosting dinners and during the day the generous terraces around the curved lagoon-style pool provides plenty of options for lazing around and relaxing.
A large and detached master bedroom with en suite open-air garden bathroom close to the beach provides exceptional privacy and a sense of escape. It even has its own separate swimming pool. The 5* Private Reserve also includes five guest bedrooms, specialty accommodation for children plus a nanny’s room and a Mr Mrs Friday’s (butler’s) bedroom. There is also plenty of entertainment for adults and children including a large TV lounge, living room and study, guest lounge, a gym and of course a private pool with a waterslide (providing as much fun for adults as for children) and access to a secluded section of the beach.
All accommodation on Soneva Fushi comes with its own bicycles and his and her butlers for guests to use as needed. Outside the Private Reserve there is still plenty to do, with the resort also including a star observatory, a Glass Studio (glass blowing), an outdoor cinema at night and numerous dining venues. During the day, the resort offers guided scuba diving with a marine biologist, snorkelling with manta rays and a dinner and many more activities from sunset dolphin cruises to picnics on a private island. For those looking for something more laidback and on land there is also a day spa which offers yoga detox programs and personalised beauty treatments.
One of the best features at Soneva Fushi is The Den – a kid’s paradise. Designed for children 4 years and above but suitable for all ages, The Den offers a wealth of activities from its Lego Room to the family friendly pool area with its own waterslide. The Den is complimentary for all in-house guests. Soneva offers a weekly programme of activities for all younger guests, and most of these activities are also complimentary.
Soneva Fushi Resort is the original desert island hideaway in the Maldives. Vast, multi-bedroom luxury villas and private residences are hidden among dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine, Biosphere unesco protected coral reef.
Located in the Baa Atoll, just 30 minutes by seaplane from Malé International airport, Soneva Fushi offers a limited number of private residences – the first resort homes available to foreigners in the Maldives.
Soneva Private Residences reflect the signature experience and style for which Soneva has become world renowned; understated design and luxuriously spacious accommodation, uncompromising quality and service, and environmental sensitivity.
