Maldives Resort Villas to Feature Their Own Waterslides

By Paul Joseph

Soneva Fushi, one of the most luxurious resort hotels in the Maldives, is to add a fun new feature to its already sumptuous offerings in the form of private water slides.

The slides will form part of the resort’s eight new overwater villas that will sit perched above the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.

Scheduled to open in early-to-mid 2020, the new one-and two-bedroom villas will each boast private pools and slides plunge directly into the sea.

The villas will also come with an expansive upper level with a dining salsa and day bed, as well as the resort’s signature outdoor bathroom with direct access to the sea.

Reclaimed driftwood and crisp white linens adorn the living area which comes with a well-stocked wine fridge, a minibar, a pantry.

Guests can stay at the new Water Retreats at Soneva Fushi for $2,626 (1 bedroom villa) and $5,232 (2 bedroom villa) per week.

Soneva is a resort chain founded by Sonu Shivdasani and his wife, Eva Malmström Shivdasani in 1995. The company currently owns resorts in the Maldives and several across South East Asia, as well as a two-bedroom luxury yacht
