Soneva Fushi Maldives’ new Water Retreats come with water slides.
Soneva Fushi’s new Water Retreats in the Maldives, the largest in the world, are now welcoming guests (from September 25, 2020) to experience the barefoot luxury resort.
Located in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi is reached by a gently curving jetty near Dolphin Beach, at the opposite end of the island. The resort’s eight Water Retreats have been designed to ensure the utmost privacy for guests, as well as to make the most of the picture-perfect ocean vistas.
Soneva Fushi Water Retreats
The 1 Bedroom Water Retreats (584 sqm./6,286 sqft.) and 2 Bedroom Water Retreats (857 sqm./9,224 sqft.) are the largest one- and two-bedroom overwater villas in the world. The spacious interiors and exterior living spaces give guests more to love, as well as making them perfect for families. As each of the rooms in the Water Retreats can be sealed off, the doors out onto the deck can be locked, and the children’s room is located at the back of the master bedroom, they are child-friendly and suitable for young Soneva guests of all ages. The 1 and 2 Bedroom Water Retreats, all have water slides.
When it comes to the interior, the colour palette consists of light blues, greens, and soft beiges, bringing to mind the colours of the ocean around Soneva Fushi and the verdant island jungle. The décor is true to the rustic castaway style that Soneva Fushi is known for. The lighting systems are from PLH Italia, known for their sleek and discrete design. The walls use recycled Styrofoam as insulation, which helps keep the interiors cooler and serves to muffle the sound of the wind and waves. With a push of a button, the retractable roof slides back above the master bed to reveal sunny skies or starlit nights.
