Soneva Jani is located in the Medhufaru lagoon in the Noonu Atoll and is reached via a 40 minute seaplane flight from Malé International Airport. Spread over five islands and surrounded by a crystal clear private lagoon, the resort offers guests a wonderful castaway experience.
Accommodation & Facilities
There are 24 over- water villas, ranging in size from one to four bedrooms, each opening onto its own stretch of sparkling lagoon. The beautifully designed interiors are light and bright with comfy sofas and white rattan furniture. Press a button and the retractable roof opens over the bed to reveal the starry night skies. Each has a private pool and several feature a slide from the top floor straight into the lagoon. There is currently one island villa, with additional island villas expected to be completed by the end of 2018. There are five dining options including four tables at the Observatory where screens linked to the resort’s telescope allow diners an extraordinary celestial experience.
For underwater enthusiasts, the reef around the lagoon offers wonderful snorkelling while scuba-divers will find dive sites rich in marine life nearby. It’s possible to explore on foot or by bicycle, or to arrange to take a speedboat trip a little further afield. Cinema Paradiso is the first silent cinema in the Maldives – and guests are provided with Bluetooth headphones so not to disturb the surroundings. The spa offers a range of treatments and there’s a small gym for guest use. Children are welcome and the Den play area is a great spot to keep younger guests happily entertained.
