 With Soneva Villa Ownership, your dream holiday never has to end.

 

Soneva’s iconic Maldives resorts have long redefined tropical luxury. At Soneva Fushi, the original barefoot hideaway in the Baa Atoll, and Soneva Jani, an over-water sanctuary in the Noonu Atoll, Soneva’s sustainable ethos and idyllic island location meet an exceptional level of service and one-of-a-kind experiences. 

 

With Soneva Villa Ownership, your holiday in paradise never has to end. Introduced in 2011 after requests from repeat guests, it is the first and only private villa ownership scheme in the Maldives, offering a rare opportunity to purchase your own luxurious home-away-from-home. Today, the portfolio includes a selection of island and over-water villas at both Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani, as well as Soneva Kiri on Thailand’s idyllic Koh Kood island. 

 

Built in absolute harmony with their stunning natural setting, each Soneva Private Residence is designed to maximise your sense of tranquillity and seclusion, with bespoke details tailored to your exact needs. The ultimate expression of Soneva’s famed Slow Life philosophy, these eco-friendly yet ultra-luxurious havens offer the time and space to disconnect from the stresses of daily life and reconnect with the ones who matter most, with the sand between your toes. 

 

As a Soneva Villa Owner, you will also enjoy exclusive benefits across Soneva’s resorts – including significant savings on food and beverages, experiences and domestic transfers, as well as the opportunity to offset your residential expenses through the Soneva Villa Rental Programme. For your peace of mind, every villa is fully managed by each resorts’ dedicated estate management team, from maintenance, cleaning and repairs to 24-hour security. 

 

Soneva Fushi – the island escape

At Soneva Fushi, the portfolio of Private Residences range from one-bedroom beachside hideaways, to a sprawling nine-bedroom villa complex. With unmatched sunrise or sunset vistas, each has private jungle gardens and direct access to the soft sandy beach.

At Soneva Jani, there are two types of Private Residence to choose from: spectacular one- to three-bedroom Water Reserves and Water Retreats, perched directly over the lagoon; or sprawling two and four-bedroom Island Reserves, surrounded by leafy rainforest gardens and just steps from the sands.
