Inspiration in its purest form. An imaginative journey that began over two decades ago, the Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani, a tropical resort offering inspired by the word that means ‘wisdom’ in Sanskrit. Soneva Jani encompasses a collection
of water villas and island sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal-clear waters, fringed by pristine beaches and blanketed in lush tropical greenery. The highlight of the islands that the resort calls home is the 5.6-kilometre private lagoon that surrounds it; an awe-inspiring azure spectacle that inspires a sense of calm.
Located on the stunning island of Medhufaru, the resort is surrounded by five private islands in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. A spectacular castaway experience awaits guests at this retreat, featuring beautifully designed interiors made from the highest quality sustainable materials. Twenty-four Water Retreats open to the sparkling lagoon and are complete with a private pool and a retractable roof to stargaze from the master bedroom, while many have slides into the water below. Three island villas are nestled in the island foliage, steps from the sandy beach.
The culinary experiences at Soneva Jani are as diverse as they are memorable, presenting gourmet menus across a variety of cultures and cuisines, organic offerings, beach barbeques and elaborate romantic escapades. In addition to the delightful dining venues, you can indulge in culinary adventures such as private dining around the lagoon, a castaway picnic, organic garden lunches and cooking classes.
Explore the glimmering galaxies from the resort’s state-of-the-art observatory, far from the obscuring lights of civilization. Spend your time indulging in a range of activities including water sports, wellness therapies, scuba diving, dolphin cruises and bicycling along the island’s many trails.
