The Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani, their newest resort offering which opened in November 2016. Located in the Noonu Atoll, the resort comprises of five islands, the largest of which is 150 acres in size and is covered with lush tropical greenery and inhabited by land crabs! The highlight is the 5.6 kilometre private lagoon with its gin clear waters and pristine beaches.

Each Water Villa comes complete with their own 13 metre private pool and some even with water slide from the upper floor into the lagoon below! Another unique feature is the retractable roof in the master bedroom, perfect for stargazing from the comfort of your king sized bed. The bathroom is open air with a sunken bathtub, outdoor and indoor shower and lagoon access.

The Gathering forms the heart of the resort, a three storey overwater structure which is home to some of the dining outlets as well as the spa, observatory and library. So Fresh is the main all day dining option complete with live cooking stations and wood burning pizza oven. For wine pairing dinners and tasting menus, head to So Imaginative or for something a little more special, So Engaging features the chefs table for 5 very special guests at a time. Cinema Paradiso is set on an overwater deck at the south side of the island and the menus will be tailored to accompany the evening’s film!
