These aren’t the most massive overwater villas in the world – that honor apparently goes to Gili Lankanfushi’s 18,300 square foot private reserve – but it is claimed that they are the largest overwater villas in the world. They opened earlier this month at Soneva Fushi, on the island of Kunfunadhoo Baa Atoll, with 6,286-square-foot one-bedroom villas and 9,224-square-foot two-bedroom retreats.

Each of the eight new retreats features a 62-foot (19m) waterslide that plunges straight into the ocean, a retractable roof – which slides over the main bed to reveal sunny skies or starry nights – a private pool and see – through a glass floor so guests can observe the fish without having to move a muscle

Eva Malmstrom Shivdasani, Creative Director of Soneva, said: «  I wanted to maintain the natural beauty of Soneva Fushi, so she looks almost the same as the day we found her, with the villas hidden in the vegetation When we had to add more villas, we didn’t want to touch the beach, as we think it should be for our guests and the turtles that visit our shores

‘So we built on the ocean We hired all the right people to come and assess the proposed location, making sure there was no living coral in the area

‘The new water retreats are very spacious and have been finished in the rustic style of Soneva Fushi Everyone involved in building these overwater villas did a fantastic job

‘Everything is bespoke and the carpentry know-how is incredible Our guests can now stay in an island villa or aquatic retreat without moving between the resorts’
