Resort Description

An imaginative journey that began over two decades ago, the Soneva story continues with Soneva Jani, the brand’s newest luxury resort offering. Inspired by a word that means ‘wisdom’ in Sanskrit, Soneva Jani encompasses a collection of Water Villas and Island Sanctuaries set within a lagoon of crystal clear waters, fringed by pristine beaches and blanketed in lush tropical greenery.

The highlight of the islands that the resort calls home is the 5.6 kilometre private lagoon that surrounds it; an awe-inspiring azure spectacle that inspires a sense of calm.


The resort is where the embrace of nature is enhanced by the caress of luxury. Guests will be treated to a unique ‘castaway’ experience within the spacious villas, which feature beautifully designed interiors made from the highest quality sustainable materials.
