For Shafeeq, Soneva Fushi is home from home. There are three generations and five members of his family involved with the island. His grandfather, Kaafa, weaves baskets for the gift shop, while his father Rocket and brother Ashraf provide locally caught fish for the resort chefs. Shafeeq's cousin, Mauroof, is a waiter at Soneva Gili. The whole family is from the nearby island of Maahlos, and they carry with them a wealth of local knowledge and experience which they are more than happy to share with guests and hosts alike.
