There is something called a slow life status symbol slowly creeping into man’s fast paced existence. But it guarantees a lot more than just relaxation, SLOW LIFE standing for: Sustainable-Local-Organic-Wellness-Learning-Inspiring-Fun-Experiences. This is the philosophy of the Soneva Group, best examples being their luxury private residences in Maldives and Thailand, allowing the elite to nestle in the lap of ultimate opulence. Of these is their new magnum opus in the Indian Ocean. The eight bedroom architectural mammoth is the largest resort villa in the region.
The construction is a stunning two-storey collection of villas enveloped in an expansive wraparound swimming pool. The master bedroom boasts its own private swimming pool and an outdoor bathroom and there are five additional guest bedrooms, a children’s bedroom, a smaller nanny’s bedroom and one for the Mr/Miss Friday butler. Other features include a wine cellar, library and large sunken dining area within the pool, children’s playroom and a private spa suite with steam facilities, a gym and massage room. In the midst of the Maldives, Soneva Fushi is alone in offering private villas with more than three bedrooms.
But surpassing all the stupendous amenities are astonishing views of unending cerulean seas. As with all Soneva Group’s privately developed villas, this new establishment, with eight suites has been constructed using time-tested indigenous techniques. By providing luxurious accommodations, magnificent natural locations and incredible cuisine, it successfully strikes a balance of lifestyle and sustainability with a wealth of local, “money can’t buy” experiences. Except, all of Soneva’s exclusive villas can be purchased for $3 million to $15 million. Rental programs are tailored to owner’s requirements and in this case, come mid- October, the property can be rented at rates ranging from $11,300 to $30,000 a night depending on the season.
