An imaginative journey that began over two decades ago, the Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani, the brand’s newest luxury island resort.
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.
The island comprises of 57 villas ranging from one-bedroom villas on the water to four-bedroom villas on the beach. Each are beautifully designed with interiors made from sustainable materials. All villas have an open-air bathroom with bathtub, shower and lagoon access.
The highlight of the island is the 5.6 kilometre private lagoon that surrounds it; an awe-inspiring azure spectacle that inspires a sense of calm. With that comes some of the best dive sites in the world; so jump in the water with the island’s professional divers to take a closer look at what the underwater locals get up to.
Lightfoot Travel provides tailor-made itineraries that include daily tours and excursions, restaurant recommendations and bookings, and can incorporate the Maldives into a longer multi-destination holiday. Take a look at From Cultural Sri Lanka to Paradise in the Maldives as an example of a bespoke itinerary that we can create for you.
