Soneva Fushi Resort & Spa / Kunfunadhoo
Kunfunadhoo at 1400 metres long and almost 400 metres wide is one of the largest islands in the Maldives. Apart from the crystal clear waters, white beaches and tropical climate, for which the Maldives is world renowned, the island’s unusually rich vegetation creates a unique natural environment. The sheer size of the island allows enjoyable exploration by bicycle or on foot.
Accommodations are scattered along the beach and tucked into the lush greenery, providing personal privacy. Each villa has the luxuries you would expect, whilst the utmost care and creativity has been given to maintain the environment and to reflect the Robinson Crusoe experience. Even messages are delivered in bamboo canisters, demonstrating the resort’s commitment to “intelligent luxury”. Kunfunadhoo Island is surrounded by a shallow lagoon enclosed by coral reef, providing crystal clear turquoise waters, which are ideal for snorkelling and a wide variety of water sports.
Experience the exquisite No News - No Shoes philosophy of Soneva Fushi Residences. The 65 accommodations are placed so that your very own stretch of white sand beach is just a few steps away.
