Soneva, группа отелей, Мальдивы
Hotel Group, Maldives
The name of the Soneva brand is derived from its owners' names, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani, who opened their first hotel in the Maldives in 1995, Soneva Fushi. Sonu and Eva are true innovators and pioneers. They were the first to build a five-star hotel on a distant atoll organizing the first flights there. They own the concept of intelligent luxury, when environmental friendliness and luxury go hand in hand, it was they who came up with the motto that defines the hotel's philosophy today: No news, no shoes. The hotels have no dress code and there is no pretentiousness at all. Only relaxation and enjoyment are important!
Today, the Soneva brand includes three hotels - Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Thailand. Soneva in the Maldives also has her own luxury yacht - Soneva in Aqua.
Soneva Fushi is a luxury hotel located on Kunfunadu Island in Baa Atoll, Maldives.
The hotel has seventy villas ranging from one to nine bedrooms. All villas are surrounded by lush tropical greenery and have private beach access. A coral reef, protected by UNESCO, passes by the hotel. Each villa is serviced by Mr. or Mrs. Friday, whose task is to anticipate the wishes of the guests.
Hotel Soneva Fushi has been recognized as a Leading Vacation Destination on several occasions. Both children and adults adore Soneva, because the resort's capabilities are unique: these include cycling around the island, during which guests will see rabbits and pheasants running out onto the road, and watching films in the open Cinema Paradiso, and visiting the Observatory, where everyone will have the opportunity to independently count the rings of Saturn.
