I want to introduce you to Soneva Fushi (Kunfunadhoo Island, Baa Atoll), which serves some of the most delicious food I have ever tasted and happens to be my favourite hotel of all times. Staying here is one of the best things ever!
Soneva Fushi is simply beautiful and utterly amazing! The quality is extraordinary, attention to detail is immaculate and absolutely everything is tailored to your every wish and desire. I could go on forever praising its virtues, but I shall restrain myself. As such, lets get straight to the food (and skip the white beaches, hammocks, palm trees, spa, snorkelling, scuba diving, and the laidback luxury).
There are two restaurants (Mihiree Mihta and Nine ), two bars, and a wine cellar on the island. Each and every location is unique, extraordinary, and utterly beautiful. Breakfast and Lunch are served in Mihiree Mihta, which is right next to the beach, meaning your toes get to dig themselves into the sand while you enjoy a culinary feast. There is an extraordinary choice, including homemade baked pastries and mind blowing good fruit for breakfast and freshly caught fish any way you want it for lunch. (My personal favorite was the delicious sashimi!) You can enjoy a delicious dinner at Nine, which has a more refined and elegant atmosphere. Dinner is always a feast, especially during the weekly aperitif on the neighbouring white sandbank and the grand dinner after. Of course, you can have lunch or dinner served anywhere on the island upon request (on the sandbank, on the beach, in your villa…you name it!)
What makes Sonvea Fushi particularly special and truly sets it apart from any other luxury resort, is the care and attention given to everything – especially the food. The fish is freshly caught just off the island and the chef’s organic garden is the ultimate pinnacle, meaning your food really is freshly picked and locally sourced. In fact, Soneva Fushi and its food have been so successful that they’ve published a cookbook. Here’s a beautiful page from said cookbook, with which I hope to bring a slice of paradise into your kitchen.
