‘Spectacular Overwater Villas’
Located on the island of Medhufaru in the Noonu Atoll, Soneva Jani is barefoot luxury at its finest. Overwater and island villas are dotted around the island and each one opens up onto its own stretch of crystal clear lagoon. All of the villas are equipped with a spacious master bedroom and adjoining sleeping area, an open air bathroom, outdoor deck, overwater swing and shimmering private pool. The main facilities at Soneva Jani are all concentrated within The Gathering, a three storey structure that hosts the main dining outlets that serve Italian, Asian and internationally renowned dishes. Facilities at the resort include an overwater silent cinema, labyrinth gardens and, fun for the children, a kid’s den. Soneva Jani boasts the first overwater observatory in the Maldives, a real treat for night-time explorers young and old.
