TL Advisor Stephanie Williamson Just Back From Maldives
Accommodations and/or DMC/On Site
DMC = Giltedge
Accommodations = Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani,
How to get to
Nonstop flights from Boston to either Doha or Dubai, followed by a 4-hour flight to Male. From there, it's about a 40-minute seaplane ride.
Soneva Fushi - anyone and everyone, families included. Soneva Jani - families are certainly welcome, but I don't feel they have as "family friendly" of a vibe as Soneva Fushi
Not-to-be-Missed Experience or Activity
The Maldives are well-known for their excellent snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. Soneva Fushi has a house reef, making it easier. Soneva Jani do not have house reefs, but offer boat excursions to get you into the water to see turtles, manta rays, and reef sharks.
Favorite culinary aspect of the hotel or region
Absolutely everything. Every single property has incredible dining options. The ziplining to either breakfast or dinner at Soneva Fushi is certainly unique.
Favorite Wellness aspect of the hotel or region
Both have great wellness aspects to them - incredible, whole, foods...biking around the island...thoughtful and peaceful spas.
Every single person. Everyone is genuinely happy to see you and stops what they're doing to greet you. They will go out of their way to help you. Everyone stands out at these three properties. They're all truly special.
These are places that I can see guests returning to time after time. Especially Soneva Fushi. It's a special place with understated luxury that succeeds in making you feel wanted, appreciated, and like you're right at home.
