Sobah’s Dinner & Cruise
Named after Chef Sobah, the ‘Best Chef in the Maldives’ award winner, Sobah’s is a traditional Maldivian restaurant located on an uninhabited island only 15 minutes away by speedboat from Soneva Fushi. Chef Sobah has been with Soneva for many years, and after consistently winning local and international culinary awards, year after year, we gave him his own restaurant, which opens twice per week.
The cuisine is uniquely Maldivian using recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation, and the food is prepared using traditional cooking methods. The ingredients are sourced from what Sobah buys fresh from the fishermen each morning or what he scavenges from the island of Mendhoo itself. After dinner, learn about the starry night sky from our resident astronomer, while enjoying some of our finest digestives.
Freediving at Soneva Fushi
Freediving is the exhilarating practice of discovering the underwater world using only a single breath. You will learn our finning technique – how to propel thorough the ocean, increase your breath hold capacity, ability to both relax and focus, equalisation and of course safety, which is paramount.
Guided Snorkelling with our Marine Biologist
Accompany our resident marine biologist on a guided snorkelling trip to one of the spectacular reefs found in the Baa Atoll. They will guide you through the reefs and introduce you to the various species of marine life. You may also be lucky enough to encounter beautiful sea turtles and manta rays, which are common in this area of the Maldives.
House reef snorkelling and night snorkelling are also available. Peer through the night waters at moray eels, lionfish, octopus, lobsters, sleeping parrotfish and bioluminescent plankton.
Snorkel with Manta Rays
Join us as we search for the enigmatic, graceful, inquisitive and charismatic Manta Rays in the waters of the Baa Atoll. If the conditions are right, we will go to Hanifaru Bay, located only 20 minutes by speedboat from Soneva Fushi, which has one of the world’s largest population of Manta Rays. When time and tide align, fortunate snorkelers get to observe and capture a rolling, whirling feast where it may be possible to see hundreds of these large yet harmless creatures congregate to gorge themselves in the plankton-rich waters. There are also several other locations close to Soneva Fushi where Manta sightings are common, so the exact itinerary of the trip may vary to maximize the chance of seeing these magnificent creatures. If Mantas cannot be seen on the trip, the Marine Biologists will lead an underwater discovery tour to showcase the stunning scenery of the marine life in the Baa Atoll.
