The most recent offering to the Soneva collection – Soneva Jani is located on the island of Medhufaru, located in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. Comprised of a collection of Water Villas and Island Sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal clear waters, this property is completely unique. With  a collection of 24 overwater villas and one island villa set in a 5.6 kilometre private lagoon. The resort spans five islands surrounded by pure white beaches, covered in rich tropical vegetation, offering the ultimate in privacy and luxury.

All of the Water Villas have direct access to the lagoon, and some of the Water Villas even have access from the upper floors via a private water slide straight from your villas into the crystal clear water. We love that in each Master Bedroom in the Water Villas there is a retractable roof, meaning that you can star gaze from the comfort of your bed.
Indulge in total luxury at Soneva Jani,  each villa features an open-air bathroom as well as three different dining areas –  the sunken seating area is glass bottomed so you can spot the fish below you whilst you dine.

There is a wide range of dining options available at Soneva Jani. From ‘So Cool’, the in-house chocolatier with over 60 flavours of ice cream to indulge in, to ‘So Imaginative’s experimental tasting room. ‘So Engaging’ offers a seat at the Chef’s table for a private dining experience and a mystery menu for just five guests. ‘So Starstruck’ is a small dining area in the dazzling Observatory, where the tables have screens with links to the telescope for a truly unique experience.  Alternatively you can indulge in a Robinson Crusoe Castaway picnic, sandbank dining experience, or dine on ‘Zuhairs Island’ where you can feast on what the chef has picked and caught that day.

Soneva Jani has a dazzling array of facilities and activities to enjoy, we love the ‘Cinema Paradiso’ which is the Maldives‘ first over-water silent cinema – each guest is provided with a blue-tooth headset, leaving the surroundings at peace. The Observatory at Soveva Jani is the first over-water observatory in the Maldives – an experience we would definitely recommend. For the enthusiasts out there, there is an in-house astronomer, or you can learn more in a private astronomy session. This is taken to another level with the ‘Astronomical Dinner Cruise’, a completely unique dining experience; relax on the top deck of ‘Scooba Do 2’ while the sun sets, savouring delicious food – once the sun has set the in-house astronomer will be on hand to explain the wonders of the sky.

Soneva Jani is perfect for a family holiday, a playground for the imagination –  they can get involved in the huge variety of activities that are going on on the island, our favourites being gardening and protecting the turtles. Soneva Jani offers a completely unique holiday experience, there is something so special and relaxing about being there and we just love it.
