Soneva X Active Escapes

The Most Lux Fitness Retreat in the World!

The original Soneva and the ‘No News, No Shoes’ blueprint for all barefoot luxury hideaways. Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 64 private island villas and eight Water Retreats that are among the largest of their kind in the world.  It is the perfect location for the most luxury Active Escapes ever!

Hidden among dense foliage within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve on the deserted island of Kunfunadhoo, Soneva Fushi pioneered the back-to-nature, barefoot luxury trend. Fusing the Robinson Crusoe fantasy with an intelligent approach to service, aesthetic, and experience, it sets the standard for island resorts worldwide.

Located on a bright-white whirl of sand set like a crown jewel in the turquoise sea, Soneva Fushi was the maiden Soneva resort, first opening its eco-luxe doors almost 25 years ago. Ensconced within lush tropical foliage, this luxury resort’s philosophy is ‘no news, no shoes’, encouraging guests to spend their holiday roaming the island barefoot, connecting with the earth.

Boasting private beach access and blending seamlessly with the island’s swaying palms, all villas ooze idyllic deserted island vibes and promise privacy and seclusion. Externally, they’re a study in voluptuous curves hand-crafted from whitewashed wood, with shingled roofs and understated architecture that allows the natural environment to shine.

Internally, they’re sophisticated, spacious, soothing, and replete with cosy corners and hammocks to curl up in with a good book. An interior palette of greens and purples channels the surrounding Indian Ocean seascape, while furnishings made from all-natural materials such as wood, cotton and wicker are a constant reminder of the Soneva brand ethos.  

With private pools, stunning outdoor bathrooms featuring sunken bathtubs and rainforest-shrouded showers set in an enclosed garden area, the villas at Soneva Fushi are as aesthetically pleasing today as when the resort first opened.
