Located in the Baa Atoll, Kunfunadhoo Island is one of the largest islands in the Maldives. The resort can be reached by a scenic 30-minute seaplane flight direct from Malé International Airport. Alternatively if you prefer to use the domestic airline to Dharavandhoo airport, this will take 30 minutes, followed by a 12-minute speedboat ride.

Sold on a renewable leasehold, every Private Residence is designed to meet its owner’s individual needs, while remaining true to Soneva’s signature ‘Intelligent Luxury’, uncompromising ecological and ethical credentials, high quality design and utmost attention to even the smallest of details.

Privately-owned villas and retreats are fully maintained by the resort (including repairs, replacement furniture, fixtures and fittings, lighting, gardening and pest control), while owners enjoy myriad benefits, such as 20 per cent savings on food and beverages, motorized water sports and flight transfers.

Each of Sovena Fushi’s uniquely designed Private Residences are decorated in luxurious, yet mindful, fittings and furnishings, all of which are designed and made by the skilled team of carpenters and local artisans. Full of natural light, sprawling spaces and cozy niches, the Private Residences feel like home.

At Soneva Fushi, you have a wealth of distractions around the idyllic island. From water sports and tennis, to the Soleni Dive Centre and Six Senses Spa, there is plenty to do. Gaze at the stars at the Observatory or catch a nighttime film at Cinema Paradiso. Make use of the gym while the children spend their days in the children’s club, the Den. You will also find a shop and an art and glass studio, So Glassycle.

As well as making significant savings while enjoying the use of their property during their own holidays, Private Residence owners can maximise their return on investment through Soneva’s Villa Rental Programme, which offers a strong cash yield when villas are rented out while owners are not residing at the resort. In the Maldives, for example, capital prices have appreciated by approximately eight to ten per cent per year.

Synonymous with intelligent luxury, Soneva Private Residences raise the benchmark for intuitive service, environmental sensitivity and gracious living.
