Located on an uninhabited five-island cluster within the Noonu Atoll, the Maldives’ most unique resort is fringed by pristine seashores, blanketed with lush tropical greenery, and surrounded by a 5.6 km (3,4 mi) lagoon of crystal clear waters with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views. Each one of many phenomenal water villas has a non-public lap pool and opens to its personal stretch of lagoon, with some villas that includes slides going immediately from the highest deck into the lagoon under. The spotlight of the villas is the retractable roof in the main bedroom, which slides again on the contact of a button in order that friends can lie in mattress and stargaze.

One of probably the most unique seashore resorts on the earth, Soneva Kiri presents an unrivalled mixture of luxurious, environmentally pleasant design and unforgettable, genuine Thai experiences. The 35 resort villas (together with 11 non-public residences) are amongst the biggest on the earth.

In 1995, Sonu Shivdasani, an Indian-British hotelier, launched the now world-famous Soneva Fushi resort on the abandoned Maldivian island of Kunfunadhoo. He additionally constructed his home there, collectively along with his spouse Eva Malmstrom, a Swedish style mannequin, who developed the design and furnishing of the distinctive resort.

They had no concept that their intensely private imaginative and prescient of a regionally crafted villa and environmentally accountable life-style would kind the idea of a profitable assortment of world-class motels, resorts and spas. But that’s precisely what occurred. Soneva Fushi was the primary ‘castaway’ resort within the Maldives, pioneering a pattern for back-to-nature luxurious holidays. And it nonetheless tops my listing of the high 10 finest luxurious resorts within the Maldives. In 2009, the Soneva Hotel group constructed a second, much more spectacular resort – Soneva Kiri – on the unspoilt Thai island of Koh. Last 12 months, the group launched the primary floating villa within the Maldives, SonevaIn Aqua.

Under Eva’s and Sonu’s path the Six Senses model gained world fame earlier than being bought in 2012.

Today, Sonu and Eva deal with their Soneva resorts with non-public residences, as a part of the “One Owner, One Operator, One Philosophy, One Brand” technique. And whereas the Sonevas might have many imitators, they haven’t any equals. Both Soneva Resorts impress on a variety of ranges. Breathtaking ‘remote but accessible’ pure areas, effortlessly stylish lodging, unimaginable meals, really memorable actions, an inspiring ethos of sustainability and repair that’s uncannily intuitive.
