Founded by Sonu and Eva Shivdasani in 1995, Soneva was born from a love of the untouched beauty of the Maldives, pioneering a trend for back-to-nature luxury holidays. Pursuing 'intelligent luxury', there are now three world-class Soneva resorts located in the Maldives and Thailand. Resort staff and discerning travellers share a passion for protecting these naturally-inspiring enviroments, with exclusive experiences focused around discovering the destination's beauty. Of course, there's also ultra-luxe facilities and world-class service to complement your stay, for the ultimate luxury holiday with Soneva.
Since the brand’s beginning, Soneva has been committed to operating in the most sustainable way possible. From forest restoration and meticulous recycling, to supporting local causes and communities close to their world-renowned resorts, this is a luxury brand that goes above and beyond to support sustainability. Across their 20-year history, Soneva have planted 511,290 trees in Thailand, taught over 300 Maldivian residents how to swim and helped to provide clean water to over 750,000 people worldwide.
The Maldives original barefoot luxury resort, Soneva Fushi has set the standard for the well-known ‘no news, no shoes’ philosophy for over 20 years. The paradisiacal island, which features a collection of 61 Robinson Crusoe-style villas, instantly became the go-to getaway for discerning travellers looking to withdraw from the world. Only a 30-minute seaplane ride from Malé, you’re quickly immersed in the resort’s natural beauty – the magnificent house reef is home to a wealth of wonderful marine life, while the island’s white-sand beaches and lush flora set the scene for a breathtaking stay. From breakfast to dinner, wherever you dine, menus feature only fresh, organic ingredients, and there are also an exceptional collection of destination dining experiences to try, from a private sandbank dinner, to a picnic lunch on a deserted island. Whilst young travellers have their own dedicated space at The Den, there’s something for all ages, from world-class diving and snorkelling, to the serene Six Senses Spa and fabulous outdoor Cinema Paradiso.
On the remote island of Koh Kood, best known for its rich rainforest, dramatic waterfalls and traditional village life, ultra-luxe Soneva Kiri seamlessly blends with the tropical landscape. With 34 spacious villas – each featuring a private infinity-edge swimming pool – in a cutting-edge eco design, it’s one of Asia’s most exclusive escapes. This eco-friendly outpost spoils guests with a range of exquisite dining options – from moonlit meals to treetop dining – as well as hosting exclusive cooking classes for a hands-on experience. The sumptuous Six Senses Spa is overseen by world-class therapists, but adventurous personalities may prefer diving or sailing, or perhaps desire to try something more unusual, such as an astronomy class. For little ones, the exciting Den is a haven for play, with everything from chocolate-making classes to a melodic music room to keep their imaginations running wild.
