There are few things in life more special than holidaying with a group of friends or extended family – and the latest in the line of Soneva larger villas at Soneva Fushi in the Maldives are designed to ensure bigger parties have room to relax in unadulterated, laid-back Intelligent Luxury. Truly vast multiple bedrooms, tropical open living spaces, romantic outdoor bathrooms… so much attention has gone into creating the perfect holiday hideaway you won’t want to leave.
Soneva Fushi is the only resort in the Maldives with villas housing more than four bedrooms – the recently upgraded and latest line of properties are made of a white-washed wood and clean lines, built to blend in with the natural jungle and beach surrounds.
If you’re looking for a three-bedroom option, take the new one on the end of the island with panoramic views, crafted from sustainable wood and bamboo, a true haven with sprawling terraces, seaside pool and special touches like a personal gym and steam bath. There’s an upgraded three-bedroom sunrise retreat with its suspended walkways connecting the living areas to sleeping quarters – and one bedroom is in a separate bungalow for that extra privacy. And the most recently launched villa has a decadent 2,250 meters surrounding its three bedrooms, an exceptionally large swimming pool and plenty of space to breathe.
Or if you need four bedrooms, there is the choice between the Jungle Reserve or a new residence that hugs a statuesque jungle tree in the hallway. This plush villa with ample space encapsulates everything you could dream of, with four sumptuous bedrooms, a study, a magical den for the children, even a room for their nanny. Not forgetting the huge slide from the upper deck into the seawater swimming pool below.
But for sheer size and spectacle, the nine bedroom villa that opened in September is the largest of any resort in the Indian Ocean, has real wow factor. Imagine a wrap-around sea water swimming pool with slide and over-water trampoline lounging area, a glorious master bedroom with its very own pool, and facilities that range from a children’s playroom to a library and private spa suite for all pampering needs. More of a private estate than a villa at 7,280 sqm, whatever the occasion you’d be hard pushed to find a more breathtaking, fun place to stay whether you’re celebrating a friend’s big birthday or enjoying a multi-generational family rendezvous.
Offering the space and privacy to play, party or relax amidst blissful natural surrounds, with all the resort’s facilities from incredible food to the top masseuses at hand, the Soneva larger villas surpass expectations every time.
Soneva Fushi has a sister resort Soneva Kiri on the island of Koh Kood one hour by private plane south-east of Bangkok. Koh Kood is Thailand as it was years ago. Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, fishermen going about their business. Barefoot Siam, at peace with itself. Also coming soon to the Maldives, is a floating villa concept Soneva in Aqua and a treasure trove childrens’ Den.
