by | Maldives

Welcome, fellow travel enthusiasts, to the Maldives’ epitome of luxury and grandeur. Brace yourselves for a journey into a world where luxury merges seamlessly with natural beauty, where extravagant experiences await at every turn. Join me as we uncover the hidden treasures and exclusive indulgences that make the Maldives an unrivaled destination for those who taste the finer things in life.

Dream stay: Soneva Fushi’s new over-the-top Water Retreats

Recently, we have observed two prominent patterns in travel: a growing inclination toward seeking refuge in expansive natural environments and a preference for renting private villas. These trends offer travelers the ideal opportunities to satisfy their desires for rejuvenating escapes, all while prioritizing the practice of social distancing. Soneva Fushi in the Maldives has impeccably captured the essence of these trends by introducing its remarkable collection of eight new Water Retreats, exuding an unmatched level of luxury.

On-call butlers cater to every need, from room service to arranging private picnics, while each villa provides bicycles and tricycles for exploring the lush grounds. Enjoy an outdoor movie night at Cinema Paradiso or learn glassblowing at the glass studio, where Soneva upcycles glass waste into unique souvenirs.

Located in the UNESCO-designated Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve, this 71-room resort offers guests a range of aquatic experiences, such as surfing and snorkeling with manta rays. Sustainability initiatives at this carbon-neutral property include:

  • Sourcing seafood locally.
  • Banning plastic water bottles.
  • Establishing a coral reef nursery to protect marine life.

Gili Lankanfushi: Find paradise on an eco-friendly private island

Imagine a paradise of tropical bliss, and you’ll find yourself in the enchanting Maldives—a collection of 1,200 islands nestled in the Indian Ocean. Although the journey may require some effort, the destination is indeed worth it, especially when you have the pleasure of experiencing Gili Lankanfushi. This extraordinary retreat, boasting 45 villas and a solid commitment to conservation, invites guests to leave their shoes behind and disconnect from the outside world. Let us dive into this idyllic haven and discover its wonders.

Discover the ultimate remedy for jet lag at the resort’s overwater villas. Take a refreshing nap in various spots, from the open-air living room to the rooftop terrace’s lounge chair, or even unwind in an ocean hammock. Afterward, hop on a complimentary resort cruiser and pedal to the spa for an indulgent Ayurvedic detox massage, with your butler ensuring a reserved spot.

Gili Lankanfushi’s marine biology team has cultivated coral in an on-site nursery for eight years, successfully reintroducing approximately 600 coral colonies to the surrounding reefs.

If luck is on your side, keep your eyes peeled for mesmerizing sights like green turtles, reef sharks, and graceful manta rays.

Explore the resort’s organic garden and then indulge in a Maldivian curry cooking class or a wine-tasting experience in the underground cellar. Delight in a vegan-tasting menu or savor sustainably sourced seafood during a garden lunch or dinner.
