What You Can Expect

At the heart of a 5.6-kilometre lagoon, multi-award winning Soneva Jani is one of the world’s most exclusive and lowest-density resorts, with uninterrupted ocean views in all directions. Located on the island of Medhufaru in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll, it is a short journey by speedboat from Maafaru International Airport, or by seaplane from Malé.

An imaginative journey that began over two decades ago, the Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani. Inspired by a word that means ‘wisdom’ in Sanskrit, Soneva Jani encompasses a collection of water villas and island sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal clear waters, fringed by pristine beaches and blanketed in lush tropical greenery

Each Water Villa opens to its very own stretch of sparkling lagoon and is complete with a private pool. What’s more, many of the villas feature slides from the top floor straight into the lagoon and have a retractable roof to stargaze from the master bedroom.
