Our beautiful villas at Soneva Fushi fall on the sunset or sunrise side of the island. While both sides have the Maldives' signature white-sand beaches and crystal clear azure waters, there are a few differences.
Sunset side: Good for snorkellers
Watch as the blue skies turn into the warm hues of the Maldivian sunset. While this side of the island offers exceptional sunset views, it is also possible to see our neighbouring local island, Eydhafushi, which is approximately 650 metres away. While the twinkling lights from this island look very pretty at night, guests who want more privacy may wish to consider staying on the sunrise side of the island instead. The sunset side of the island has three reef access points, which means guests don’t have to walk far to access our house reef. The snorkelling is also better on this side, and dolphins are more likely to be spotted swimming past in the channel.
Sunrise side: Good for privacy
Catch the very first rays of the sun as it comes over the horizon of the Indian Ocean on this side of our island. Enjoy a virtually unimpeded view out to sea, as Maalhos, our closest neighbouring island, is just a speck on the horizon. This side is perfect for early risers who want to enjoy the tranquillity of our beautiful island.
