Soneva Jani is nestled in the Medhufaru lagoon in the Noonu Atoll. It 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. Soneva Jani’s official opening is scheduled for November 05, 2016 but bookings are now available from October 01, 2016 onwards.
Maldives’ newest luxury resort Soneva Jani offers 24 water villas and one island villa, with additional island villas planned at a later stage. 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.
The impressive design of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom Water Villas allows their guests to enjoy their own stretch of sparkling lagoon, with private decks, open air bathrooms, overwater swings, private catamaran and water slides. The pools use seawater with UV filtration and the villas have been built over the sandy floors of the lagoon, with no damage to any part of the reef.
An expansive beachfront suite, the Four Bedroom Island Reserve affords a wealth of luxury while allowing for personal customisation depending on the guests expectations. Ample indoor-outdoor living areas abound, including a steam bath, changing room, sauna, master bedroom, TV lounge, dining room, private pool, kitchen and wine cellar. The second floor is home to a further three bedrooms with bathroom and dressing room.
Soneva Jani will include all of Soneva’s features including a spa, a dive centre, an observatory, a children’s den, an Eco Centro, organic gardens and an outdoor Cinema Paradiso. The cinema will be the first ‘silent cinema’ in the Maldives, as guests will be given Bluetooth earphones to watch movies so as not to disturb the nesting wildlife in the area.
