Soneva Fushi’s new One- and Two-Bedroom Water Retreats has officially opened on September 25, marking the start of a remarkable new chapter for the iconic Maldivian resort. Accessed via a gently curving jetty near Dolphin Beach, the Water Retreats have been designed to ensure utmost privacy for guests.  

Both, the 584 sqm. (6,286 sqft.)One Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide, and the 857 sqm. (9,224 sqft.) Two Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide come with a private pool and a curving slide that plunges directly into the Indian Ocean. With a choice of sunrise or sunset views, the villas feature a large al fresco deck, including plush sun loungers, a sunken seating area and catamaran nets over the ocean. Both villa types feature a spacious upper level with a dining area and day bed, along with Soneva’s signature outdoor water garden bathroom with direct access to the sea.  

The design and choice of location of the Water Retreats followed a comprehensive environmental assessment within the resort to ensure that the Baa Atoll’s terrestrial and marine ecosystems remained unharmed by construction activity and the subsequent use and maintenance of the villas.  

Prices start from USD 2,626 +++ per night for the 1 Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide, while stays at the 2 Bedroom Water Retreat with Slide start from USD 5,232 +++ per night.

Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 63 spacious beachfront villas, ranging in size from one to nine bedrooms, hidden among dense foliage and located within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Choose from nine different dining options, five hundred wines and 11 types of pillows.
