Each of the Soneva Resorts is an awarding-winning destination, receiving accolades from Condé Nast Traveler, CNN, Travel + Leisure, Robb Report and many more.
Soneva started as a resort brand under the company Six Senses BVI, founded by Sonu Shivdasani and Eva Malmström Shivdasani in 1995.
Conceiving the slow life mantra, Eva and Sonu found their purpose. With a legendary reputation for a meticulous eye and a no-nonsense commitment to preserving and respecting the environment and its inhabitants, They ensures that every piece it takes to build a Soneva property is sustainable and natural. Beyond that, little details (that make a big difference) like the use of only glass bottles and paper straws, are all thanks to Eva’s vision of respecting the fragile ecosystem. With each resort that’s built, care is taken to work with nature, not against it.
Soneva Fushi is regarded as the first luxury hotel in the Maldives, setting of the trend of luxury holidays in the nation. It was the first “Robinson Crusoe” styled resort in the Maldives and also offered the first wine cellar in the Maldives.
