Reinventing the definition of tropical paradise, the barefoot luxury resort of Soneva Jani spans across an entire island archipelago and private lagoon, which boasts of long beaches swathed in white sand and turquoise waves. Accessible via a scenic 40-minute seaplane flight from Malé International Airport, a 60-minute speedboat ride from sister property Soneva Fushi, or half-day cruise from Soneva Fushi aboard the luxurious Soneva in Aqua vessel, Soneva Jani promises guests a secluded vacation that transcends the imagination. The resort is divided into the Chapter 1 (north) and Chapter 2 (south) branches of overwater villas, with the main island and some select land-based accommodations - plus facilities and dining venues - as a connector. Retreats, Reserves, and Residences come with one to four bedrooms, as well as superlative features such as private pools with catamaran nets, retractable roofs, and water slides that splash into the lagoon. Spectacular scenery sets the stage for a wide range of activities - experiences such as movie nights at the overwater cinema, dinner cruises beneath starlit skies and snorkel tours with sea turtles ensure that guests will certainly not be wanting for entertainment, and nor for exciting dining options - from freshly-caught fish to wood-fired pizzas, the resort is home to array of restaurants with cuisine to suit all palettes.
