Description & Location

Soneva Jani is the newest addition to the inspirational Soneva collection of resorts. In some eyes, the most impressive yet. The combination of simple elegant luxury and nature, allowing the stunning beauty of the Maldives to shine through at every opportunity, but with all of the contemporary comforts you could wish for.

Medhufaru Lagoon is located in the Noonu Atoll, 40 minutes by sea plane (day light flights only), north west of the international airport at Male. It is actually a grouping of 9 small  islands, 5 of which are on a long term lease to Soneva. At least two  of the “Soneva Islands” have been kept free from any development, so you have a real feeling of escapism, with deserted beaches, ideal for daytime picnics and lush tropical vegetation surrounding you.

North beach (now renamed Zuhair after a legendary Maldivian chef . Water-sports take place on South beach .



Accommodation

Soneva Jani has 24 Over Water Villas. Each is incredibly spacious, with a total of 411 sqm (at least) of total living space.

You have a master bedroom with retractable roof, which is perfect for star gazing. There is an adjacent sleeping area for children. Three separate in villa dining areas and a 13m swimming pool.

All of the Water Villas are built on two levels and most have a slide from the upper floor straight into the sea!

You have a choice of:

Water Retreat Villas and Water Retreat with Slide.

Two Bedroom Water Retreats, with 555 sqm of living space – some with slide option.

Three and Four Bedroom Water Retreats – all with Slide.

On Land you currently have one Island Reserve Villa with four bedrooms, offering an incredible 1,400 sqm of beach front living space. *see footnote

CHIC CHECK

Soneva Jani offers the best of nature, coupled with stripped down sophistication and incredible accommodation. For those with long memories, there is a similarity with the former Soneva Gili, but this is several notches higher, plus the advantage of a fantastic setting.

In the initial stages we think the main appeal will be for couples and those with older more independent children or teenagers. As with all over water and or accommodation with private pools, you do need to think about the suitability, especially with younger less confident children learning or unable to swim.

As with all of the Soneva resorts, this will be at the top end of the price scale, but to many of their faithful followers that is maybe a plus, not a negative.

Twin centres with the established Soneva Fushi are easy to arrange. It is about 90 minutes by speedboat between the two resorts. Combination rate offers apply most of the year.

On the island you currently have just one rather magnificent Residence. More are planned but this could be way off into the future – ask us for updates or maybe even resort investment opportunities.

The present traffic like system for travel introduced by the UK Government was maybe well-intentioned but has probably lead to even more confusion. So this is an attempt to clarify, in deliberately simplistic terms.

For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May – June level and about 50% more in Asia.

For the Mediterranean & Canary IslandsCaribbeanArabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.

*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding air fare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.
