Experience Barefoot Luxury Through Slow Life at Soneva Fushi in Maldives

The concept of sustainable tourism is widespread among travelers, especially those who are looking for a fun yet ethical vacation experience. The gorgeous property at Soneva Fushi makes for the perfect getaway when it comes to experiencing a true luxury vacation.

Founded by duo Sonu Shivdasani and his wife Eva, Soneva stands as combination of their first names and has been a leading property of choice for many travelers since its conception 25 years ago. The popularity of Soneva Fushi is what led to Maldives becoming a favorite amongst wealthy tourists from across the world.

Shivdasani goes on to explain how the idea of SLOW LIFE- Sustainable Local Organic Living Learning Inspiring Fun Experiences has been the core purpose to create the most engaging and creative experiences for guests who come to visit.

The luxury resort is known for something called ‘barefoot luxury’. What this essentially means is on arrival, all guests are given a drawstring bag where they are asked to deposit their shoes. The journey from there onwards in to exploring the resort is encouraged to be taken barefoot, symbolizing a relaxed and care-free holiday experience in the real sense.
