Soneva Secret

The first resort to open in the sparkling waters of the Maldives’ Haa Dhaalu Atoll, Soneva Secret is a barefoot paradise offering the ultimate in privacy and seclusion that took 30 years to create. The resort features 14 overwater and island villas, including the Maldives’ only floating villa, and all feature master bedrooms with retractable ceilings for stargazing. Each villa features a dedicated team of three, which includes a Barefoot Guardian, Barefoot Assistant and dedicated chef, to ensure every stay is wholly personalized. The resort’s 14 chefs de partie each come from a different country, with expertise in their local cuisine, to present an indulgent, bespoke menu of Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Maldivian, Italian, Indonesian, French, South American, Sri Lankan, Chinese, Middle Eastern, Korean, Indian and Nordic flavors. Guests can experience unique dining experiences such as a castaway wine cellar where guests can zipline to the elevated wine cellar terrace to dine under the stars while the resident astronomer helps navigate the skies, or a toes-in-the-sand beach dining experience with dishes cooked over a central fire pit, and an all-day dining 2-story clubhouse with library and games room and restaurant/lounge with a menu using seasonal ingredients from the island’s organic garden. Delicious temptations can also be found at the resort’s complimentary chocolate, ice cream and cheese and charcuterie rooms. The Soneva Spa offers personalized wellness treatments targeting guest individual needs. Additionally, guests are offered a variety of bespoke experiences from swimming with manta rays and sea turtles, yachting adventures, and engaging children’s activities. This resort can be reached via a scenic 75-minute seaplane flight direct from Velana International Airport (MLE).
