Soneva fushi is a relatively large island with numerous different categories of bungalows (various sizes, with or without a private pool, etc.). Brand new the undertow. 'private residences ', in which one to buy can. Here is also still a few construction, which however really not noticeable, if one does not get straight past take the bike. Water bungalows are not available. Although the resort since 1995 is, it makes no worn impression - not in the villas, nor in the public areas. You have to the rustic charm of course like. On every guest coming about 3 staff ... (mainly gardener), which is of course much to do, the resort to. There is a departure for many badly-behaved children, the networks of the bar (a) bara jump into the water (although signs prohibited), the, the rabbits feed, under our table kriechten and us did not disturb, in the public areas rumschrien etc. It seemed to us that, as if these children completely himself, and the parents happy, times their peace. This works so clearly not, there are also some couples were (as we), the calmness and were looking for relaxation. Complaints gave there of course gm laurie. The management seems to be aware of this problem, and with the opening of the 'children's the' in the autumn will the situation probably relax. Here it is then in the inner part of the island a large area for families with children are, with playgrounds, restaurant etc. We would have preferred, that the resort to a target group concentrated. read hotel review

    Our crusoe villa was absolutely sufficient. It is on the ground floor an open bathroom and a living area, above the bed and a further toilet, as well as a terrace with day bed. Cleanliness was of course without complaint, villa attendant came 2 times daily air conditioning system was quite quiet.

    As mentioned in a previous evaluation was criticized, we were already at the beginning of our week for visiting the various restaurants divided, which we personally didn't bother us. The food itself was outstanding, no matter, whether in the by the beach (asian fusion), the fresh in the garden (everything from the box) or the main restaurant. Very nice i found the many influences Sri Lanka and India. And the cooks and waiters were all so friendly, we patiently all the detail to explain, of the ingredients, the preparation, to the guidance, as you eat. Another highlight for us was the room with the homemade chocolates, the whole day is open. My favorites were salty caramel and peanut butter. Also i have no hotel in the world, which is such a very large variety of types of cheese had. It must have at least 20 different have been, from the greek halloumi to correct parmesan. We can also the vast number of cocktails praise, the also very well prepared. One small complaint gave it unfortunately also. The bars have open as long, until the last guest goes. It was now happen, that we until 2 o'clock at night there were, and it must not be really like that, that the employees bored around the bar crawl and us feel, that they are like to conclude, we should go. But since we stood above ;-)

    Our mr. f., zidane, was very discreet, but always in the background to the place. The genuine friendliness, as we are of our stays in the six senses samui knew, was not given, but probably a mentalitätsfrage is. (the thais are simply can't be beat in terms of friendliness). But, obviously, zidane done everything, our week as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Also the other staff (from the waiters to the management) were with the breakfast and dinner there, everyone was open for a short discussion, no matter how insignificant it was, and i never had the feeling, that us excursions or similar imposed were. Our villa attendant was also very plain, has its job but to our fullest satisfaction.

    Luckily, there is no public pool, only private pools of the villas, but even so we didn't need. The turquoise water right in front of our villa was much better. The thick cushions and adjustable beach chairs were here of course, as well as an umbrella. Also animation did not give it naturally. There were excursions not too many. We have a Dolphin cruise and a guided snorkel trip with Federica, the meeresbiologin made. They were very concerned about the participants worried, has much explains, but always keeping an eye on the welfare of all had. Her lecture on the different fish, sharks and turtles several times per week was very interesting.

    Of times from one flew with the seaplane about 20 minutes to Soneva fushi. The whole transportation was but very well organized, we were in times by a staff at front desk and in the Soneva fushi lounge stituents. We got a welcome drink, could a few snacks to take us, in advance our preferrierten smell in the villa, on a television a first impression of the resorts provide.

The island is in all in all still very nice. Very much green, you can the whole day barefoot walk around or by bike, the every guest made available will, through the shady 'jungle' drive. So you had the partly somewhat longer distances ( inselgröße 1400 meters 400 metres) from the villas to the restaurants or for breakfast quickly overcome. There are villas in lots of different categories (different sizes, a/two-story, with/without private pool and so on.) read hotel review

    Rather rustic and on the nature furnished, so many natural materials processed. Large semi-outdoor bathroom with 2 showers (one of them a rainfall shower in the midst of the trees). Outside a cozy a daybed and two beach chairs with soft cushions and always with fresh towels changed. On the whole good equipped (mini-bar, wine fridge, espresso machine, kettle and a cd player, tv, safe) and clean, but also somewhat outdated now.

    The breakfast was again excellent. Huge selection: rich the offer for cheese, ham and salmon in a specially refrigerated room, a room for bread, toast, cakes, danish pastries, homemade delicious jam (more than 10 different), different trockenmüslis to the mix and finished arranged bircher muesli, stewed fruits and several kinds of yogurt and not to forget the huge fruit stand with the tastiest fruits. Pretty good Furthermore can à la carte various egg dishes (Eggs Benedict, omelets in all variants, scrambled eggs, pancakes and waffles) be ordered. Delicious, but also not the attention to detail as the last visit. As were the pancakes with a few small berries or soßenklecks and whipped cream presented, this time there was the bare pancakes on the plate and a minischälchen maple syrup next to it. This may seem whine of the highest standard sound, but the small details make now times the particular from, all the more in a high-end resort like this and above all if you know, that there were already times different. The evening buffet were outstanding. Very a wide choice of lots of different stands. Everything was as requested on the point is grilled, great side dishes, a massive choice of salads. A better than the other. One creates it unfortunately not, to try everything, so varied is the buffet. All in all we thought, that the food even a little improved. The homemade ice cream was wonderful. The food in the other restaurant was also very good with very tasty combinations. In comparison to last time have the cocktails much improved. There is also a chocolate room with chocolates and chocolate.

    Very many employees, the welfare of the guests take care of it. The villa was twice daily (always during our absence) cleaned. Perfect timing. Very conspicuous was however, that the resort apparently at the end its capacity is concerned, what in every corner and ends was to feel (in comparison to our last stay 5 years ago). The personal butler/mr.. Friday, the one with arrival as contact person for, dives usually (as well as similar designed and until recently to the group's six senses resorts ) for breakfast and ask for the are and, wether everything is okay and, if you something to undertake would like. However it also was already there in the early morning a certain hektik to feel. The pool. Fridays stressten from a table to the next, went their questionnaire and it was very obviously a process of the guests. So the typical and for every meal time first session juices (very delicious saftkreationen in shot-glasses). Then they were from a competent waiter before the food brought. This time there was a person, the during the whole time of food with a riesentablett and jerky view through the breakfast area wuselte and as soon as someone somewhere seated, were the beverages serves (sometimes even during the meal or not at all). There is more to a machinery and not more so relaxed. This has been reflected in the reservations in the restaurant shown. On arrival we were given a of soneva turned ' essensplan' sick. On day of arrival (arrival 17 hours) for 19 hours a table in the 'fresh in the garden' restaurant, on the next day was compulsory buffet, the following day asian food in the 'by the beach', the following day buffet and on the next day à la carte in the main restaurant. Therefore, that the resort was overful (and that is most of the time of year) is the flexibility in the selection of the restaurants for the guests lost. The resort generalstabsmäßig as planned, that the number of guests in the respective restaurant good to use. I would have gladly more frequently in fresh in the garden restaurant, which however for the next 2 weeks not more was possible. Also you don't want to 'timetable' food, but depending upon desire and mood here and there and also limited be flexible. This plan plenary debates down was unfortunately much of the island feeling 'live for the moment and let yourself float' lost. For breakfast it was sometimes very crowded. The resort is probably more and more families with children a, the large villas or the private residences inhabit. There were only very few tables for 2 people, but several large for up to 14 people. One morning we have 16 (small) children counted, the all very quiet and were absolutely not bothered. But it is because of the higher number of people a constant noise, tellerklappern, child highchairs umhertragen and so on. Permanently bustle available. The resort would like also all meet, but it had unfortunately often nothing more from Robinson-feeling one Maldives-islands. As a couple you want to maybe more your peace and the sound of the sea and birds hear, instead of tellerklappern and discussions about tischzuteilungen. But it is the change of the resorts fault.

    Open-air cinema with filmklassikern, tennis court, well-equipped fitness studio, library, internet places, diving school (free rental of snorkelling equipment), yoga classes, small observatory with personal astronomical statements, a well-stocked gift shop, lots of tours as sandbank picnics, island snorkelling tours or dolphin cruise, cooking classes and much more. In addition a very nice and very good spa. In the evening you can enjoy the sunset in the champagne bar, the at the end a jetty in the sea stands. Tasty cocktails and snacks with dip in addition. But unfortunately also here lots of people for the few places. Therefore not so romantic as it could be. (loud conversations from adults, the groups are there and whose children row while snorkeling with darkness make (under the seating in the form of networks on the ocean in the water lamps appropriate-because it is of course in the dark exciting snorkeling).

    The transfer from male takes with the seaplane good 30 minutes, followed by a short transfer by speed boat. All villas have direct access to the beach, the in many places only very narrow or not any more is available and entrance into the sea partly by stone slabs is interrupted. On the sunset side views of a native island, which does not disturb however at all.

From the strandvilla to the reef about 150 meters, ideal for snorkeling, the walking shoes you can also at home I even in the jungle you walked barefoot, on the island one moves with the wheel and forget for a week completely the shoes, from which you on arrival already on the boat 'liberated' is. read hotel review

wonderful, large, very expensive island! archived

Suneva fushi is a relatively large and very nicely wooded island-to circumnavigate you need on the beach an hour, you can the island but also some leafy hike through. The beach quality was excellent, the nearby riff within easy reach and fish-rich. There are only about 60 villas on the island, each fully isolated by lush vegetation, so that the stay expire in personal atmosphere. The cottages are a bit abgenuntzt and could be renovated-the very rustic decor is (for example, the tables in front of the cottage! Former cable drum) a bit hard to get used to. The food ... is very good, the different open-air restaurants withing walking distance-don't miss, the restaurant ' fresh in the garden' visit, where daily fresh food from their own organicgarden to be served. The Observatory beside offers some nights an interesting star leadership. read hotel review
