North Male Atolls



A sybarite's dream come true, on a tiny coral island in a sparkling azure lagoon.  The hassle-free transfer from plane to speedboat facilitated by your personal guest officer or "Man Friday", is followed by a twenty minute skim over the ocean, often with dolphins or whales leaping in the distance, and delivery to your thatched, stilted bungalow at Soneva Gili.

Sister island to Soneva Fushi, owners Sonali and Eve, have paid full attention to delivering ultimate luxury whilst taking care of the environment. Natural woods feature throughout the architecture and the few bungalows set out in the lagoon, leaving the island's flora and fauna relatively undisturbed.

Head to the ocean in the morning  to witness the colourful fish and in the afternnon take a stroll along the beach or explore the organic vegetable and herb garden, kept in pristine order for Chef's daily selection.

The airy, spacious guest suites with living areas, private sundecks, comfortable bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms are reached by way of jetties built out from the island.  For absolute privacy, some are accessable only by boat, moored for your personal use. The attention to detail is outstanding from the 24x 7 impeccable personal service through to the state of the art music and film technology in each suite.

Dine in - order what and when you want on your direct line to the chef - or out, in the restaurant, the bar, in the garden, by the pool or aboard a dhoni as you cruise.

The Six Senses Spa is guaranteed to revive any jet-lagged traveller or super stressed executive, bringing renewed energy for the tennis court, dive school, deep sea fishing or just topping up the sun oil.

Though year round temperatures are tropical, you may need a light jacket, sweater or wrap in the monsoon months (23 / 24 c.). Shoes should be kicked off on arrival, they are only needed for the gym or tennis. It is advisable to pack washable clothes as there is no dry cleaning service available, only laundry. 

The newly launched Private Reserve is an amazing 2 storey over- water villa nearly 1km away from the main island, with two master suites and a guest room. Reached only by water, personal motorised transfer boats are available exclusively for guests of the Reserve. The list of facillities is almost endless but includes:- large living room; open plan living area with sea garden, sun decks, dining area and day beds; private spa facillity; latest 'high tech' entertainment equipment; resident personal butlers and a 36ft, 400hp speedboat with crew permanently on call.  



  •  As little intrusion from the world outside as you desire
  • The blissful calm of a massage as you watch the sea life below through glass pannels in the floor.
  • Exceptional diving experiences
  • Memorable sea food, surprisingly varied cellar and local organic fruit and vegetables
  • No mosquitoes
  • Length of journey and few direct flights
  • Island living is very simple and low key - not for those craving night life.  Combine 7 days here with a more stimulating, active visit to nearby Sri Lanka.
  • Cost - the name of the game here is luxury and privacy, which comes at a price.  Many foods and wines are imported, pushing up prices.
  • The all round presence of water means that small children must be closely watched, though the beaches are as perfect as they could wish for.
