One Week, Both Sonevas

August 2014

’One Week, Both Sonevas’; a tale of two world class resorts, and an unprecedented opportunity to experience both Soneva Kiri in Thailand and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives in the same week.

The Soneva Group has issued the ultimate challenge to luxury lovers  with a sense of adventure and desire to see the world: a promise of one of the most perfect weeks imaginable including a selection of the signature SLOW LIFE experiences for which each resort has become renowned.

Attentive and friendly Maldivian and Thai Mr./Ms. Friday hosts will seamlessly guide visitors around theSoneva islands ensuring no stone is unturned and no opportunity is missed. Guests can make a choice between a set itinerary of the best of the best or a bespoke itinerary. The Experiential Menu offers a range of activities, including private outdoor cinema screenings of the guest’s favourite film; private Tree Pod dinner high in the treetops; private sunset cruises for dolphin and flying fish spotting; father and son picnics on a deserted island or line-and-pole fishing trips; mother and daughter spa pampering; intimate family dining on a private sandbank; free diving and stargazing with trained astronomers in the Observatory. These experiences are just a few of the serendipitous and sublime once-in-a-lifetime moments.

The Soneva ‘set’ might, most stylishly, be done by private jet, although it is eminently do-able by commercial aircraft too.

At Soneva – where else?

Soneva Fushi

The original desert island hideaway. Vast, multi-bedroom villas hidden amongst dense foliage within touching distance of a pristine Biosphere UNESCO protected coral reef on its own atoll. A resort for the young, and young at heart. Cycling trails, the Den, water sports galore, al fresco films at Cinema Paradiso, 60 flavours of ice cream, 11 types of pillow, 500 wines, nine ways to dine.

Soneva Kiri

Untamed jungle, pristine beaches, fishermen going about their timeless rituals. One hour’s flight by our private plane from Bangkok, another world awaits. Unfeasibly large villas and vast private residences on idyllic beaches and in sun-dappled rainforest clearings.
Stunning infinity pools, chic furnishings, personal electric buggies, Cinema Paradiso, Benz’ restaurant in an emerald forest of mangroves, the Observatory, The Den, and the Treepod Dining of hospitality legend.

Based on two people, prices for one week from August 2014 range from $15,700 USD to $21,100 USD in March 2015.
