Jet off on an exclusive Eid Al-Fitr escape to Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in Maldives, where guests from the Gulf are in for a special treat… 

Best for families: Soneva Fushi

Embrace castaway style simplicity and kick off your shoes for an exquisite barefoot luxury experience at this tropical hideaway that sits jungle style within the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Just 30-40 minutes via seaplane from the international airport, Soneva Fushi appeals to the whole family with its stellar line-up of activities, from manta ray snorkelling trips to dolphin cruises. There’s a full gamut of dining experiences to enjoy, from a meal prepared by a visiting Michelin-starred chef to a favourful Arabic spread enjoyed in the privacy of your villa. 

Soneva Children’s Camp is sure to entice little ones out of their shell by offering them the chance to try something new, from nighttime island safaris to coconut oil making, glassblowing and much more. Younger ones will adore the Den, where they can launch themselves into the weekly programme of activities designed to inspire the mind.

Best for gourmands: Soneva Jani

Home of the famous over-water villas with water slides (you must have seen the incredible drone footage), Soneva Jani in the Noonu Atoll is a 45-minute seaplane flight from Malé International Airport, or a 60-minute speedboat ride from Soneva Fushi. 

This playful resort is an Instagrammers dream due to the sparkling sapphire-hued lagoon that surrounds it, and the view just got even more tantalising thanks to the variety of cuisines that are being served during Eid Al-Fitr. 

Sample Middle Eastern favourites, delve into Japanese flavours, or taste crab cooked to perfection at new restaurant, The Crab Shack, which has a dreamily romantic setting on the beach.

Appetite satisfied, you’re free to take part in the many experiences on offer, from snorkelling with manta rays to an Ayurvedic treatments at the overwater Soneva Spa while the kids get busy at the Den and Soneva Children’s Camp.

GCC residents can stay for seven nights and pay for just five (or four and pay for three), with lots of added extras included.
