An imaginative journey that began over two decades ago, the Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani, the brand’s newest luxury resort offering. Inspired by a 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. Here you will be treated to a unique ‘castaway’ experience within your spacious villa, which features beautifully designed interiors made from the highest quality sustainable materials.
Located in the Edufaaru lagoon in the Noonu Atoll, comprises five islands, the largest of which is Medhufaru, which is 150 acres in size. The resort can be reached by a scenic 40 minute seaplane flight direct from Malé International Airport, a 60 minute speedboat ride from Soneva Fushi, or by a leisurely halfday cruise from Soneva Fushi onboard Soneva in Aqua.
The resort’s selection of experiences caters to every kind of traveller and includes everything from nature walks and spa treatments to lazy picnics and beyond. Soneva Jani offers a full range of activities including water sports, scuba diving, tennis, dolphin cruises and bicycling along the island’s many trails.
Culinary experiences at Soneva Jani are as diverse as they are memorable, presenting gourmet menus across a variety of cultures and cuisines, organic offerings, simple 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 Robinson Crusoe-style castaway picnic, organic garden lunches and cooking classes
