Maybe another title for this post is ‘Best for Easter’. Actually, Soneva Fushi isn’t the only resort with free roaming rabbits. Kuredu also has rabbits, but Soneva is really the most famous. Only for Soneva Fushi has several folks who have been there have talked to me about the rabbits. They even feature the bunnies on their website (see photo above)…
“Every visit makes you feel like a child again. Cycling round the island, never knowing when you might have to swerve to avoid bunny rabbits or lizard…Nesting turtles and bunny rabbits co-habiting happily on a jewel of emerald green in a vast ocean of turquoise.”
“In 1989, Soneva Fushi’s caretaker, Abdullah, gave his son a little pet bunny. The bunny happened to be pregnant, and cute fluffy little babies were soon born. their great-great-great-great-great-grand-bunnines have made the island their home ever since and are now little mascots for Soneva Fushi. Eva’s sister Amie even wrote a book about them.”
[POST SCRIPT] – When we visited Soneva Jani and their bookseller, we got a copy of “Lost and Found in the Maldives” a children’s story about a couple of Soneva bunnies and their adventure on the island (available exclusively on the resort).
