Soneva Fushi Transfer Options

The Soneva experience begins when you arrive at Malé International Airport. You will be greeted by a Soneva Representative after you have collected your luggage and pass through the exit doors, who will be holding a wooden sign saying “Soneva”. Our representative will escort you to the Soneva lounge, just a five minute car ride away.

Please ensure your international flight lands in Malé no later than 15:30 for your seaplane connection. If you have a later flight, we have an alternative domestic transfer option.

There are two seaplane choices available: either the Soneva seaplane or the Manta Air seaplane. The Soneva seaplane is private and more comfortable, while the Manta Air seaplane carries slightly more passengers and may stop en-route at other destinations before arriving at Soneva Fushi. Please be aware that the Soneva seaplane is operated by Manta Air, so we are bound by their timings and regulations.

All guests who have pre-booked and paid for the Soneva Seaplane, but instead transfer from or to Malé on the Manta Air seaplane, will receive a resort credit as compensation, valued at USD 150 nett per person per voyage during peak season, and USD 100 nett per person per voyage during shoulder season. The resort credit can be redeemed against food and beverages, experiences and Soneva Soul treatments, excluding third parties and retail outlets.

CIP Services

Fly in style with a private charter on Soneva’s own seaplane or a Manta Air seaplane.  The CIP service is a service offered by the Maldives Airport at a charge of USD 280 nett per passenger. The service includes being met at the stairs of the aircraft and escorted through immigration to the lounge to wait for your onward transfer. The passport details of all the passengers are required at least 72 hours prior to the arrival date to arrange the CIP service.
*CIP service cannot be arranged for the following airlines on departure due to the airline’s rules and regulations: Air France (AF), Austrian Air (OS), Lufthansa (LH & 4Y) and Edelweiss (WK & LX)
