The splendid blue vistas of the Maldives have captured many a traveler’s imagination, since ancient times, and are the primary draw for the multitude of resorts there, including the soon-to-be-open Soneva Jani resort. With 24 water villas and one island villa, as well as a great host of features and facilities, this could be a great place to witness the best of the Maldives at your own leisure once it opens for business in October.
Luxurious privacy is assured, of course. The 25 villas take up an area that stretches 5 kilometers, giving enough space for guests to enjoy and explore to their hearts’ content. Every water villa has exclusive pools that open into their own stretches of the lagoon, and some even have slides starting from the top deck, allowing a fun splash into the lagoon below. The highlight of the villas is reportedly (remember the place isn’t open yet as of this account) the retractable roof in the master bedroom – allowing for a magnificent view of the stars while you lay down in your (presumably) soft and comfortable bed.
There are many things to do over at the Soneva Jani. Features include a spa, a dive center, an observatory, a children’s den, an organic garden – and even a special outdoor cinema called the Cinema Paradiso (you know, like the movie). This ‘silent cinema’ is special in that every guest will be given Bluetooth earphones while watching their movies so that the wildlife in the area isn’t disturbed by the noise.
In terms of dining, there are five different outlets serving cuisine from all over the globe, with full gourmet menus to choose from. Should you want something completely different, you can have your own special ‘culinary adventures’ all around the lagoon – like having lunch in the organic garden or on the private beach.
“Soneva Jani is a place of incredible natural beauty. The waters in the lagoon have the most vibrant shades of blue that I have not seen anywhere else in the Maldives… the villas are stunning and include all attention to detail that Soneva is renowned for” said Soneva General Manager Olivia Richli. With its perfect scenery and its unique location – this is the spot you’ll want to discover properly when it finally opens later this year.
