Barefoot Luxury at its best! Jan 28, 2011
Soneva Gili Resort in the Maldives is one of the best places to visit in Male Atoll. If you don't want to get into another plane once you get out of the Maldives International Airport, Soneva Gili is just 25-30minutes speed boat ride from MIA. Don't be shocked when the boat crew ask you to take off your shoes the concept in this Resort is "No shoes no News" Bare foot luxury thing! they will keep you shoes in a nice canvas bag and will give it to you when you request it (some people will never get comfortable on barefoot) that's not a problem. You also have the option to turn-on your tv for news or not but they cover it anyway with a cloth.
The resort is very environment conscious don't expect painted villas because they are all made out of natural wood in natural color! in this resort 100% of the villas are all constructed over water so which ever villa you book you are just a few inches from the India Ocean. My villa was a Spa Villa Suite with two levels, on the first level is the Living room, the Bedroom (with a fabulous bed) and the dressing room, in-villa gym, in-villa steam room, outdoor shower, and the toilet. In the second level of spa Villa suit you will find the jacuzzi spa beds and a private dining deck where you can actually request you Private Butler to organize a dinner a party or any event.
Yes you will have an assigned butler to take care of you.. they have so many dinning options as well, and I loved the idea of a "private eye", the private eye is a staff assigned to watch over you in the resto they are assigned to always remember your name your villa number the type of water you drink you favorite table in the resto basically they are like you private waiters and provides exclusive personal service!
The wine cellar was also nice actually a work of art! what i did not like was the lagoon was devoid of sea creatures aside from occasional reef shark visit (baby sharks not dangerous) and they share the lagoon with two other resorts so you know you don't get the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere.
all in all the resort is really expensive tilting to being over priced, but when you want to experience a new side of luxury go to Soneva Gili and live a true island dream no shoes no news
