Have you ever dreamed of what it feels like to be a castaway, on a remote tropical island, with swaying palm trees, the sound of waves, and Man Friday for company? As a child, I loved Daniel Defoe’s book, ‘Robinson Crusoe’. And I was one of those dreamers, who always wondered what it must have felt like to be shipwrecked on a desert island. Forty years later, my dream came true. Thankfully, Laveena and I were not shipwrecked, nor were we made to feel like castaways. But yes, the island which was a scenic 30 minute sea-plane ride from Male, was remote, tropical, with swaying palm trees and the gentle and calming sound of waves. Located in the Baa Atoll, in the Maldives, Soneva Fushi, is an eco-friendly, uber luxury and chic getaway, where you do not encounter mutineers, captives and cannibals like Robinson Crusoe did, but you do have a very attentive, Ms/Man Friday, your private butler, who attends to your every little wish.
