Friday newsletters always feature luxury travel contests, tips, series, or news. Today (February 8, 2019): Soneva launches second ‘Festival of Color’ campaign to celebrate unique experiences across its resorts. As most of you know, I am a huge fan of spectacular hotels (and I assume most of you are as well since you are following my blog). Six Senses, Aman, 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 manages four … [Read more...] about Travel tip: Soneva launches 2019 ‘Festival of Color’ campaign

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.

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?
