Inspired by the Sanskrit word for ‘wisdom’, Soneva Jani Found is found within a 5.6-kilometre lagoon in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. 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. Every guest staying in a Chapter Two over-water or island villa will also benefit from Soneva Unlimited, an indulgent new offering that enables them to experience every facet of the resort within the price of their stay.

Eleven dining concepts, both at The Gathering and around the island, offer a tempting array of cuisines for every taste, alongside Michelin-starred guest chefs through the Soneva Stars calendar. Guests can also indulge at the complimentary chocolate, ice cream and cheese and charcuterie parlours. Rare, unforgettable experiences include classic movies at the open-air Cinema Paradiso, dolphin-spotting on a sunset cruise, or coral planting with the resident Marine Biologist.

Soneva Jani is located on the island of Medhufaru, tucked away within the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. Located just 40 minutes away from Male International Airport by seaplane, it’s one of the most accessible and largest islands in the Maldives Republic.
