It feels like you are in a Hollywood movie set. It’s too good to be true. Super fresh organic food, excellent service, clean rooms and barefoot butler service is exceptional. Lina, Dr. Anu (Ayurved) Chiko and Ashab was exceptionally good.
It’s good if you know how to ride a bicycle, or else you have buggy at your disposal all time. You can hear waves all night long and if wind is heavy then it’s like you are in a cruise ship. Resort has so many water and environmental activities to do. Romantic beach dinner, many other dinning options(no problem at all for vegetarians),star gazing, open air movie theater, open air Ayurvedic spa, tennis court and lot more to do. I was so happy with my water villa(open roof and personal slide) that I had to forced myself to go out and do other stuff. It’s whole new world. Will go back again for sure.

When you reach Soneva Jani the sheer beauty of the place will totally overwhelm you. It's modern luxury with sustainability at it's very core. We had a 2 bedroom water vila with slide. The master bedroom has a roof that you can electronically remove and watch the twinkling stars at night. What an experience that is. The water slide in the vila itself is such a fun element. You could actually spend a lot of time in your vila itself but there is lot more to do. The experience that totally blew my mind is the overwater cinema. Imagine watching a movie with the sea in the background and a glass of wine in your hand. Mindblowing. Cant not talk about the cuisine the restaurants are one better than the other. Overall if there was more than an excellent review I would give that.

Between my girlfriend and I we have seen a lot of the Maldives but nothing comes close to the experience at Soneva. We stayed 3 nights Jani and 4 nights at Fushi getting to experience both resorts. The Covid safety was amazing and being able to be mask free after testing on arrival was great. The food and hospitality was of typical Soneva fashion.. 10/10 and the villas need no more explanation than incredible and far beyond the reaches of their nearest competitor.

Room tip: Take the sunset side at Soneva Jani, it is the perfect romance
