Soneva Fushi is the original Barefoot Luxury Resort in Maldives.
In 1995, Sonu and Eva Shivdasani pioneered the concept of barefoot luxury on their private island resort, Soneva Fushi in Maldives. They focused on providing exemplary service in beautiful surroundings, with a focus on sustainable yet ultra-luxurious accommodation.
Two decades on, the resort still operates on this Robinson Crusoe ethos.
