Part of the charm of a stay at the Soneva Jani is that fantasy of being stranded on a desert island. After touching down in Male, hop onto a private seaplane for your swift flight above the blue. 45-minutes in the air, and you land in a world of white sandbanks and impossible shades of blue.
WEATHER – November to April – Dry Season
SURF SEASON – April to October
From dawn until dusk and even beneath the light of the Milky Way, the air is thick and warm on the Noonu Atoll meaning that splashing, shoeless strolls, and epic sunbathing sessions are always on the cards. Between May and November, the wet season splashes into force, bringing silvery warm droplets in short bursts. Even when the rain comes, the Maldives doesn’t suffer a chill in the air, so pack your cottons, silks and linens for a comfortable stay.
“Soneva Jani plunges you straight into pure bliss – whether by waterslide, wealth of rare experiences, or just waking up to a new wonder in your overwater mansion. One thing’s for sure, you never tire of stargazing and the changing hues of the lagoon"
Excursions and tailored activities
Picnics, private sand bank suppers, open kitchens, chocolate rooms adorned with beautiful bonbons, cheese rooms, and the finest wines in the world – and that’s before we even get to the handful of heavenly restaurants at Soneva Jani. Soneva is marking itself on the map as an epicurean destination with visiting chefs from the Michelin Guide forming an alliance with the gourmet resort. Along with a rosta of world-class chefs coming to inspire new delights in the kitchens, the four fabulous restaurants ensure endless dinner party vibes – whether you want a fully-fledged soiree or intimate supper for two.
The Crab Shack is all laid-back sunsets and snapping claws. Be sure to try the bright Sri Lankan crab curry, the buttery seafood platters, floral rose wines, and grab a daybed on the upstairs deck for mind-blowing sunset colours.
So Fresh stays true to its name, both in menu and kick back beach style. Soaring windows, panoramas of blue, white wood furnishings, pizzas whipped out the fire, and bountiful juices, breakfast delights, and salad serve all your daily nutrients in style. So Imaginative is the spot for those celebratory dinners, where sommeliers curate beautifully personalized spaces studded with wonders from the wine tower. So Engaging is the Chefs Table, where flavours meld and dance on tasting menus that will crack open whole new possibilities of taste.
The Gathering Bar is where the sunset aperitifs flow sweet and easy, especially when paired with melt in the mouth tapas delights and small plates perfect for sharing. The Directors Cut is another epic epicurean spot with the freshest sashimi and sushi imaginable served in their overwater silent theatre. Bliss.
While Soneva Jani doesn’t offer a communal pool area, there is really no need. Each amazing villa comes complete with its own full-size pool, and the lagoon is instantly accessible for swims, snorkels, or even just dipping one’s toes.
Yoga in the pavilion, ancient Indian oil massage to bring stability to the soul, and nourishing coconut scrubs to soothe sun and salt kissed skin – the Soneva Spa holds wellness in its palm like a pearl. A beautiful spa menu complements the tropical backdrop where guests can be pampered, pummelled, and pedicured to their hearts delight. A full-service gym, personal therapist, and even a dedicated spa menu for Little Wayfarers will keep the whole family moving and sleeping with magical ease.
Like the rest of the Soneva family, the resort intuitively knows how to capture the balance between family time and adult inspired escapes. Babysitters can be organized at a day’s notice, meaning adults are free for sandbank escapes, romantic cruises, and propping up at The Gathering Bar with full flutes of champagne.
Soneva Jani takes the idea of stilted villas to a whole new level. Prepare to rub your eyes in disbelief at the truly magnificent villas delivering breathtaking views from every turn. Private island reserves come complete with amazing pools, lagoon slides from the upper floors, turquoise vistas from oversized decks, and retracting roofs for sleepy starlight views. Combine the unbridled luxury of beautifully tailored space with the joy of your own private butler bringing you drinks, snacks, and cool towels and you have a sigh in delight experience to wake up to every single day of your stay.
Capturing all the curves found in nature, the 3-bedroom island reserve offers 1,956 sqm of space that ebbs and flows with the same mood as the lagoon outside your door. This villa is everything; from the viewing tower dining table to the chocolate and wine room, the children’s pool with waterslide, and the sunken seating areas for champagne conversations late into the night. Views spin around you in pure palates of blues, rooms come dressed in breezy whites with playful splashes of colour, bathrooms bring sunken tubs and stepping stones, and open plan living spaces are complemented by captivating views, wooden hewn décor, and the ocean a few steps away.
Beachfront mansions don’t come any better than the 4-bed island reserve. Set across two stunning floors with endless terraces, cathedral like thatched roofs, curving lagoon pool, and all those added luxuries to lift tired spirits, all ages will adore this lush jungle hideaway. Coconut trees adorn your own sandy front yard, a waterslide sweeps your Little Wayfarers into the shimmering pool, and rooms are an endless oasis of pressed white sheets and billowing canopied beds. Rainfall showers, well-stocked pantries for in-house chef suppers, a wine vault, and your own sauna and steam mean that you never have to leave the charming confines of your own private resort. End the day on the upper deck, where drinks are served by your private butler to toast each pinprick of the stars coming out.
Soneva Jani sets the bar when it comes to lavish overwater living in this 4-bedroom water reserve complete with soaring slide right from the top deck into the lapping lagoon. The huge villa is a vision of endless possibility, with study, gym, outdoor showers, walk-in minibar, four beautiful bedrooms, and flop down TV lounge. Daybeds stare dreamily out into the ocean, a private pool ripples directly above the saltwater, and hammocks rock lazily in the lilt of the breeze. From free-flowing master suites to glorious game rooms, and sunken Salas for dining, there isn’t an amenity that hasn’t been considered when it comes to this fantasy floating mansion.
