Situated in Noonu atoll amidst the Medhufaru lagoon, Soneva Jani resort is the most recent expansion of the Soneva brand. Named after a word that means “wisdom” in Sanskrit, Medhufaru island is 150 acres in size, and has a 5.6 km secluded lagoon, offering sanctuary in the form of sun, sand and clear blue waters that stretches for miles.
What sets the Soneva brand apart from other luxury resorts in the Maldives is their environmentally conscious and sustainable philosophy, SLOW LIFE (Sustainable-Local-Organic-Wellness Learning-Inspiring-Fun-Experiences). Focusing on reducing wastage and recycling, their philosophy resonates in all aspects of the Soneva experience, from the décor of the resort’s villas to their personalized services.
This luxury resort can be reached via a 40 minute seaplane ride from Male’ International Airport, or in an hour by speedboat.
Private and spacious, all villas feature earthy hues and blue shades, and are made from sustainably sourced, up-cycled materials. Drawing inspiration from the tropical surroundings of the Maldivian islands, the interiors and furnishing work hand in hand to enhance the island experience Soneva Jani offers. Currently housing 25 villas, and additional villas to be completed in 2017, these retreats check all the boxes one would look for in a luxury getaway.
