The Maldives resort expands its award-winning offering with 27 new Water Reserves, new dining concepts, the Soneva Wellness Centre, and Soneva Unlimited, which includes unlimited access to meals, fine wines, diving, experiences, spa treatments and transfers.
Award-winning Maldives resort with sustainability at its core, Soneva has announced the launch of Soneva Jani, Chapter Two. Synonymous with over-water luxury, superlative hospitality and rare guest experiences, this new chapter marks the beginning of an incredible new era for Soneva. Now open to guests, Chapter Two expands upon Soneva Jani’s portfolio of luxurious water villas, as well as introducing exciting new dining concepts, the Soneva Wellness Centre, and a whole new way to experience the best of the resort with Soneva Unlimited.
Ranging from the spacious One Bedroom Water Reserves to a sprawling Four Bedroom Water Reserve, the 27 new over-water villas are among the largest and most luxurious of their kind in the world: each featuring vast indoor and outdoor living spaces and sweeping terraces, private pool, some have slides straight into the private lagoon, and outdoor bathrooms for bathing under the sun and stars. The one- and two-bedroom Reserves also have the iconic retractable roof over the master bed for stargazing. Ideal for families, all the rooms can be closed off, with a children’s sleeping area located just behind the master bedrooms for maximum peace of mind while staying overwater.
Like all of Soneva’s villas, the new Water Reserves have been crafted to the highest environmental standards, using sustainable materials, such as Forest Stewardship Council-certified woods, and state-of-the-art technology to reduce their impact on the planet.
An indulgent new offering, Soneva Unlimited invites guests to enjoy every facet of Soneva Jani to their heart’s desire, all included in the price of the villa.
Wellbeing is a vital part of the Soneva philosophy, and Chapter Two welcomes the launch of the new Wellness Centre on Soneva Jani’s picturesque South Beach. Setting a new standard in holistic wellness, combining ancient Ayurvedic techniques with cutting-edge therapies, the Wellness Centre has been designed to harmonise with its breath-taking beachside setting and features two indoor therapy rooms and three open-air treatment pavilions with unmatched views of the spectacular natural surrounds. Alongside a cross-functional fitness area, an open-air yoga pavilion includes facilities for aerial yoga.
Chapter Two also expands on Soneva Jani’s choice of dining destinations. Overseas by celebrated Swedish chef and restaurateur Mathias Dahlgren was the first new outlet to open in October 2020. Inspired by its spectacular location next to The Gathering, this casual, overwater restaurant serves lunch and dinner menus of plant-based and pescatarian dishes, with produce freshly picked from Soneva Jani’s organic gardens, or sustainably caught in the waters around the resort. So Wild by Diana Von Cranach is a fully plant-based restaurant in the midst of the Organic Garden. Diana’s 50 years of experience in plant-focused dining come to life in a menu that draws inspiration from Ayurveda and highlights ingredients grown at the resort.
The third new culinary addition set to open in 2021 is So Primitive. Set around the central fire pit, this dining experience puts the element of fire in the spotlight.
