Water slide – check. Retractable roof – check. Private pool – check. As you can see the Four Bedroom Water Reserve at Soneva Jani is no ordinary villa.. But this is just the start. This overwater villa in the Maldives also comes with a gym, a butler and walk-in mini bar. If you ever wanted to, ahem, splash out, this is the place to do it.
Cheval Blanc makes sure that you make the most of that sea view by placing the rooms in its villa side-by-side so that the villa runs horizontally to the shoreline. This means that whether you are in the living room, bedroom or your private infinity pool you get the same jawdropping view. If you don’t want to go to the restaurant that night, you can enjoy dinner on your terrace as turtles and manta rays swim past. Speak to your Lightfoot Travel Designer about an exclusive offer.
