An idyllic escape awaits in the Maldives


Discover the tropical paradise of Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani, surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of the Maldives. These two award-winning resorts redefine overwater luxury and idyllic island life by offering spacious villas that inspire endless adventure and the opportunity to disconnect and relax with loved ones.

Defining true ‘luxury’ as peace, time and space, Soneva’s resorts are renowned for their exquisite private villa accommodation, memorable dining destinations and intuitive, personalised service. Its ‘No News, No Shoes’ philosophy designs the perfect stay for your next family getaway or group celebration, free from the stresses of everyday life and filled with unforgettable experiences that inspire and enthral.

Nestled in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, one of the largest islands in the Maldives, Soneva Fushi is a natural treasure with magical experiences at every turn. The resort’s one- to nine-bedroom island and overwater villas capture the essence of a castaway fantasy, boasting ocean and tropical forest views, expansive decks and serene walkways.

Encapsulated in lush tropical forests and just steps away from the beach, Soneva Fushi’s Villa 37 is a popular choice for families this season. This villa caters to every mood, from tranquil relaxation to moments of adventure.

Across the Indian Ocean and lying at the heart of a 5.6-kilometre lagoon, Soneva Jani is one of the world’s most exclusive and lowest-density resorts.
