Soneva Jani , Noonu Atoll The Maldives, Central Islands
Soneva Jani brings you ultimate luxury in the form of over-water bungalows perched out over crystal clear waters and unspoilt beaches in the far flung Noonu Atoll.
With just 24 water bungalows and one island reserve (each with one to four bedrooms), the resort caters to all, from honeymooners to families and groups of friends. Enjoy a swim in your private pool or jump right into the lagoon from the deck. Some rooms offer a water slide from the upper floor to the lagoon and most have an ingenious retractable roof in the master bedroom that allows you to lie in bed and lounge in the sun by day or stare at the stars by night.
From in-room dining, buffet breakfasts and private dinners, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining. The resort even offers dedicated chocolate, ice-cream and deli rooms that are open 24-hours for guests to indulge in. When it comes to getting around, you can enjoy riding your bicycle or engage the 24-hour buggy service. With the surrounding waters being home to an abundance of marine life, a snorkelling or diving trip is recommended. If you’re sticking to the land, tennis courts, a gym and nature walks are on offer, while by night you can watch a movie at the open-air cinema set out over the water.
Soneva Jani is a once-in-a-lifetime treat for couples wanting a luxurious and relaxing getaway, or families and friends wanting to experience a resort that has it all in one location. This luxury does come at a price, however, we feel it’s worth it!
Ultimate - There are very few hotels we would describe as 'ultimate'. Hotels in this category must have absolutely everything anyone could want and really be aiming for the stars. These hotels generally go well above and beyond and they would always be at the very top end of the market. These are for clients looking for that extra special place.
Centara Grand was fantastic. There are not many places in the world we would want to go back to but this is one of them. We loved it!
