Soneva Fushi named amongst world’s best resorts in Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards
Soneva Fushi has been named amongst the best resorts in the world in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.
Listing Soneva Fushi at the 20th place in the list of the 50 best resorts in the world, Condé Nast Traveler described it as an eco-friendly getaway. This chic island idyll offers nearly every indulgence money can buy — except those that compromise the resort’s eco-friendliness, it added.
“Go for a beachside picnic, kick back at an open-air cinema, unwind at a Six Senses spa, and sleep soundly in one of the resort’s 65 one-to-nine room villas, which are built with sustainable materials,” the world’s leading travel publication said.
“Your wish? Literally their command: Each villa comes with its own private butler, which means that if you want ice-cream at 2.47am, you get it.”
Established in 1995, Soneva Fushi is the original Soneva. The No News, No Shoes blueprint for all desert island barefoot luxury hideaways is located within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives. Soneva Fushi inspires the imagination with 65 spacious beachfront villas, ranging in size from one to nine bedrooms, hidden amongst dense foliage.
The iconic resort has bagged several international awards for eco-friendly tourism and green initiatives, including the 2017 Green Hotelier Award for the Asia Pacific region and the Sustainable Hotel Award by the Hotel Investment Conference Asia Pacific (HICAP) as well as a spot in the Gold List compiled by Condé Nast Traveler China as the Best Hotel in the Maldives.
Condé Nast Traveler on Tuesday announced the results of its 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, ranking the best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, airlines, airports, and cruise lines in the world.
