This place is incredible. Lost for words... The incredible scenery, the villas but most of all the incredible people who makes this place so unique. Especially a huge thank you to Nasra, Shimmi, Ansari, Kitty, Aswad, Francis, Adil and many more-you are all amazing!

It’s impossible not to be floored when you first catch a glimpse of Soneva Jani’s glowing 5.6 km turquoise lagoon and those “insta-famous” water villas where most come complete with waterslide. On arrival to the resort’s seaplane dock you are met with a smiling Mr/Miss...More

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 More 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. Soneva Jani, located in the Medhufaru 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 Male International Airport, a 60 minute speedboat ride from Soneva Fushi, or by a leisurely half-day cruise from Soneva Fushi onboard Soneva in Aqua. The resort’s soft opening is planned for October 01, 2016, while the official opening date is fixed at November 05, 2016. Bookings are now available from October 01, 2016 onwards. Less
