|Just one of many accommodation options at Soneva Fushi|
We booked Soneva Fushi based on the natural beauty of the island, which is a great size. Plus the fact that there are nearby islands to visit. Then there were the villas; they have a superb collection, yet the resort doesn’t feel big. It is just the right size of having all the amenities we wanted, but without feeling like a big, impersonal hotel.

We booked with Only Exclusive Travel because they had reasonable prices and a great reputation. They have been going something like 25 to 30 years. They weren’t the cheapest nor the most expensive, but we loved the effort they put into making sure we had a great luxury honeymoon. They were happy to offer advice, make comparisons with other Maldives resorts and book our flights and awesome transfer to the island.

Our Review of Soneva Fushi
This place has to be seen to be believed. The sand is whiter than we have ever seen before. Real powdery white, which feels amazing between your toes. They make full use of this by having minimal paving areas, making the use of flip-flops only required for the hottest times of the day.
The villa we chose was excellent. It included a personal butler, which was a new thing to us and actually made us a little uncomfortable at first. However, he soon put us at ease with his friendly manner and excellent English skills. He was always available but never invasive- perfect for a honeymoon when you want to make use of things like ordering a bottle of champagne or fresh towels.
We had already looked at photos of the rooms, so we knew what to expect, everything was as good if not better than we hoped. There were no signs of wear and tear and it was obvious the best materials had been used for everything. For example, the bedding was extremely clean and comfortable.
We decided to book a week, with a day island hopping and another day on the yacht owned by Soneva Fushi’s parent company. Everything was excellent. Clean snorkelling equipment, courteous staff to help my new wife on and off the boats. Plus we never felt rushed, the service was great.
The food was a mixed bag. They had some local delicacies and plenty of varied international cuisine. We had fun sampling new things as well as a few favourites like my beloved puttanesca pasta with pizza. On more than one occasion we had our butler bring us appetizers, which is something I could really get used to.
Overall it was superb. We would love to visit Soneva Fushi again and wouldn’t bother researching the other Maldives resorts next time. Maybe we can save up for our 5th anniversary, although we may need to return sooner as it was pretty much our perfect idea of paradise. 5 stars out of 5 from both of us!
