Soneva Maldives Entices Hong Kong Travellers

Soneva, the award-winning sustainable luxury resorts operator which takes pride in the pioneering concept of ‘barefoot luxury’ unveils an exclusive year-round offer for Hong Kong travellers travelling to its two resorts in the Maldives from July 2021. The new offer provides guests with USD 1,000 resort credit to use on resort experiences upon a qualifying 5-night stay at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani Chapter One. Indulge your mind, body and soul at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives where true luxury is defined by peace, time and space. Guests are invited to discover SLOW LIFE and be inspired by nature’s magnitude, mystery and enchanting beauty.

Creating Precious and Life-Enriching Stories at Soneva Fushi

Located in the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Soneva Fushi resort is a 30-minute seaplane flight from the Maldives’ capital, Malé, or a 15-minute seaplane flight from Maafaru International Airport in the Noonu Atoll. Ranging in size from one to nine bedrooms, the 63 private island villas are hidden among dense rainforests, each just steps from the beach. Most have their own pools, and all feature vast living spaces and views towards the sunrise or sunset. Among the largest of their kind in the world, each over-water villa has a spacious terrace with a private pool and water slide into the ocean, and all have a retractable roof over the master bedroom for guests to sleep under star-lit skies.

Magical experiences are designed to create unforgettable memories. Guests can explore the constellations with the resident astronomer at the Observatory, or watch a classic movie at the open-air Cinema Paradiso. They can join the expert Marine Biologist on a guided snorkelling expedition to the vibrant house reef, swim with manta rays in Hanifaru Bay, picnic on a deserted sandbank, or try the art of glassblowing with renowned artists at the Maldives’ only hot glass studio.

The Den is a playground for children’s imaginations, with two pools, a water slide and rooms for dressing up, Lego, music and more, overseen by qualified childminders. Older children and teens can also learn during their stay with Soneva Academy, which offers a range of fascinating courses, including the marine life of the Maldives and the Adventure of the Corbin, an ancient shipwreck.

Inspiring the Senses and Learning the Secrets of the Maldives at Soneva Jani

Soneva Jani is located on the island of Medhufaru in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. Found within a 5.6-kilometre lagoon, it is one of the world’s lowest-density resorts, with uninterrupted ocean views in all directions. It is just a 15-minute complimentary speedboat journey from the nearby Maafaru International Airport, or 35 minutes by seaplane from Malé. The resort has 51 over-water and three island villas, split between Chapter One, Soneva Jani’s original, iconic offering, and the newly launched Chapter Two. In Chapter One, the Water Retreats range from one to four bedrooms, with large terraces, private pools and open-air bathrooms, with most featuring water slides straight into the lagoon. On the island, a Two Bedroom Crusoe Residence is a beachside hideaway, with a private pool and spacious open-plan living areas.

Soneva Jani’s main guest facilities are located at The Gathering, a three-storey structure at the heart of the Chapter One jetty, including the Soneva Spa, library, retail area and Wine Cellar. Eleven dining concepts, both at The Gathering and around the island, offer a tempting array of cuisines for every taste, alongside an ever-changing line-up of Michelin-starred guest chefs through the Soneva Stars calendar. Guests can also indulge at the complimentary chocolate, ice cream and cheese and charcuterie parlours. A haven for families, there is an ever-changing weekly programme of activities and experiences to keep children of all ages entertained.

Guests can watch a classic movie at the over-water silent Cinema Paradiso, using Bose headphones so as not to disturb the nearby nesting turtles or explore the constellations with the resident astronomer at the Observatory. They can join the resident Marine Biologist to plant corals, spot dolphins on a sunset cruise, have a sunrise breakfast on a deserted beach, or explore the atoll’s best reefs with an experienced divemaster.
