Padel Tennis Stars

Willy Lahoz

Hailed as one of the best padel players in the history of the sport, Willy was the youngest-ever player to play for the Spanish national team after playing for just three full seasons. He led the Spanish national team to victory at the world championships in 1998 and again in 2010. The same year, he also led the world championship in singles. He won the Spanish championships in 2000, 2003, 2006, and 2014. After a long career spanning multiple decades, Willy was awarded a silver medal for sporting merit by the Royal Spanish Padel Federation. At the age of 51, he is still competing on the APT circuit and continues to serve as its sports director and ambassador. He also runs a padel academy in Valladolid, Spain, where he coaches professional players.

Boom Swing

Why simply jump off Soneva in Aqua’s upper deck when you can swing off like Tarzan? We attach a rope to the yacht’s boom and you’ll be swinging in no time

eFoil, eSurf & Seabob

Experience the ocean with complete freedom. Gliding, diving, skimming – all of this is possible with a SEABOB. Learn to move through the water like a fish, on the surface and beneath the waves. The SEABOB is environmentally friendly, moving powerfully and almost silently as you explore the marine world. eFoils use an advanced battery to power a silent electric motor that is mounted on an all-carbon fibre hydrofoil, which can be controlled with a wireless Bluetooth hand controller. Riders, from beginners to those already skilled on a board, can fly for over an hour of fun at speeds of up to 40km per hour! What happens if you fit a surfboard with a motor? You get an eSurf-board with a carbon fibre body that is hydrodynamic and stable. The board also houses the motor, and you control the handheld throttle. The eSurf lets you get up to speeds of 56km per hour, making this an exhilarating water sport.


Who needs to catch waves when there is skurfing? Be towed behind Soneva in Aqua’s tender in this sport that mixes surfing with wakeboarding.

Soneva Art & Glass

In the Maldives’ first hot glass studio at Soneva Fushi, we create beauty from what others consider waste. From bespoke glassware for our villas and restaurants to striking works of art, all of the exquisite pieces are recycled from used glass bottles from Soneva Fushi and our other nearby resorts.

Tennis Court

It’s game, set and match at our island tennis court. Perfect your topspin with Grand Slam champions through our Soneva Stars programme, or practise your backhand with one of our Hosts. Located near the North Beach Spa Champa and surrounded by lush jungle vistas, the court is open daily from 07:00 to 24:00. Fully equipped and open to guests of all ages, bookings are on a first-come-first-served basis and can be made through your Barefoot Guardian.
