Soneva Group includes the world’s most iconic private island resorts: Soneva Fushi in Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Thailand. The company plans to launch on January 1st 2014 a sailing yacht concept named Soneva in Aqua.
The story of the company began in 1995 when married couple Eva and Sonu Shivdasani built Soneva Fushi and their home on the deserted island of Kunfunadhoo, in Maldives. Their vision was to build a locally crafted villa that encouraged an environmentally responsible lifestyle.
The success of Soneva Fushi resort lead to the creation of Soneva Kiri resort. Built on the Thai island of Koh Kood in 2009, Soneva Kiri paved the way for Six Senses Resorts & Spas, a successful collection of world-class hotels, resorts and spas spread in unique and beautiful places from Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Sonu Shivdasani sold Six Senses Resorts & Spas in 2012, but intends to pursue more island developments in the future under Soneva brand.
During their time at Soneva resorts, guests are encouraged to remove their shoes in order “to feel everything”.
The brand encourages its visitors to live a SLOW LIFE that is is Sustainable, Local and Organic. The rest of the letters in the acronyms come from Wellness, Learning, Inspiring and Fun Experiences.
Guests are invited to live enlightening experiences, to eat the freshly food grown in the resorts organic garden, to breath fresh air and to enjoy a beautiful view. Combined with the space, privacy and comfort of the villas, the resorts visitors have the opportunity to enjoy a truly intelligent luxury.
Soneva takes its environmental and social responsibilities seriously. Care to preserve ecosystems, and practices to use sustainable materials and to recycle waste materials are part of the brand’s efforts to reduce its carbon footprint. Guests are encouraged to join the efforts.
