Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas took their wedding vows in the south of France on July 4. After their D-day, the adorable couple headed straight to the Soneva Fushi resort in the Maldives for their honeymoon, a popular holiday destination among celebrities.
The luxurious villa of Soneva Fushi has hosted Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry before they announced their engagement. Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk spent their honeymoon at the resort, while the Beckhams rang in their new years. Even Kareena Kapoor Khan along with her family was seen spending time here.
Located amidst the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi is an amalgamation of luxury and eco-friendly living. They have ‘eco-centro’ which aims to make wealth from waste. Literally, everything is either recycled or reused. It starts with a huge steaming compost heap and even seemingly innocent coconut shells are turned into charcoal and used for heating. You get complimentary bottled water in glass bottles and toiletries in refillable ceramic bottles.
