Soneva Fushi has gone from strength to strength since opening in 1995. This venue was the original ‘castaway’ resort in the Maldives, inspiring other resorts and leading the way for all other ‘back-to-nature’ luxury resorts in the Maldives. Since opening, Soneva Fushi has expanded exponentially and has won countless environmental and tourism awards. Choosing to get married here means that you are making a conscious decision to start wedded life the right way; hand in hand with nature and giving your wedding destination even greater meaning and purpose than you ever thought possible.
This private desert island is home to spacious luxury villas hidden away amongst the foliage. We love that you can choose either an east or west-facing villa so that you can either see the sunrise or the sunset.
Whichever side you choose, you will feel nature’s full embrace as the sunkissed pristine white sandbanks, crystal clear azure waters and luscious, tropical forest envelop you.
Although the setting is surreal, dreams become reality at Soneva. Choose between a high-rise ceremony amongst the treetops, with a view of the horizon stretching out before you, an intimate evening villa garden ceremony lit up by hundreds of glowing lanterns or a private sandbank ceremony where your guests will already be waiting to greet you as you arrive by Maldivian dhow.
If you are feeling more adventurous, you can choose a ceremony that is sure to go swimmingly… An underwater altar is where you could commit to your soulmate, decked out in scuba gear and a waterproof audio player you follow the ceremony with the only audience being of aquatic nature.
The limit for catering goes beyond the sky as you can dine amongst tropical banana trees in a restaurant without walls that rise above the forest top. Indulge in the fresh produce grown on the island, exquisite seafood or vegan options while soaking up the magical panoramic views. This is the closest you can get to heaven on earth.
