Sixty percent of visitors to Soneva Fushi, the 20-year-old eco luxury hotel in the Maldives, are returning guests. Once you’ve stayed at the Robinson Crusoe-style resort, that’s it: you’re in love. There’s no turning back. But now hoteliers Sonu and Eva Shivdasani have opened their second Maldives property: Soneva Jani. Is it special enough to lure away the Fushi faithful? Soneva Fushi Style: ‘No shoes, no news.’ That’s the philosophy of Soneva Fushi - and, in fact, all Soneva properties. From the moment your seaplane drops you off on the powder-white sand, your shoes are removed and returned to you at the end of your stay. From then on, you'll make your way (barefoot) around the island by bicycle, getting lost Robinson Crusoe-style. You can also choose to be chauffeured around in a golf bugger, if that's more your style. The environment is at the heart of everything Soneva does. All buildings are built, … [Read more...] about Soneva Fushi or Soneva Jani: Which is the best Maldives hotel?
Luxury resort operator Soneva announced the introduction of Soneva Kiri’s newest experience, Koh Kood by Sea. The trip takes guest by speedboat along the coastline of Koh Kood, Thailand’s fourth largest and least populated island. The five-hour experience starts at Soneva Kiri’s arrival jetty then follows the eastern shore of the island. Guests pass the Ao Salad fishing village, seeing brightly colored traditional Thai fishing boats and houses built on stilts. Along the way, passengers can ask the captain to stop for snorkeling or at any of the private bays along the coast. The experience also offers the opportunity for bird watching and spotting marine life. At the last stop of the trip, Ao Yai, guests can visit a local Thai seafood restaurant that is owned and operated by a former chef of Soneva Kiri. The lunch menu includes fresh crab, prawns, squid and sea bass. Following lunch, the captain takes guests back to Soneva Kiri along the same route.

As most of you know, I am a huge fan of luxury hotels (and I assume most of you are as well since you are following my blog). Aman, Mandarin Oriental, Rosewood and Four Seasons rank among my favorite hotel brands. But none comes close to my absolute favorite hotel group in the world: Soneva. What I like so much about the Soneva – and how they discriminate themselves from their high-end competitors – is their pursuit for excellence, the unique design of their resorts, their commitment to inspired living, their very smart take on barefoot luxury, their breathtaking ‘remote but accessible’ natural locations, and their creation of authentic experiences (unlike any other). Soneva has four spectacular resorts so far (with … [Read more...] about Free upgrade + resort credit + personalized experience at any Soneva Resort
