Inspiration in its purest form resides at Soneva Jani, a tropical resort offering inspired by the word that means ‘wisdom’ in Sanskrit. Soneva Jani encompasses a collection of spectacular water villas and island sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal-clear waters, fringed by pristine beaches, and blanketed in lush tropical greenery. Located on the stunning island of Medhufaru, the resort is surrounded by five private islands in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. 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 ensuring a spectacular castaway experience unlike any other.
Chapter One includes twenty-four Water Retreats that open to the sparkling lagoon and are complete with a private pool and a retractable roof to stargaze from the master bedroom, while many have slides into the water below. Three island villas are nestled in the island foliage, steps from the sandy beach. Chapter Two has arrived at Soneva Jani, ushering in a new era of over-water luxury.
