Crystal clear waters, white sand beaches and a breezy tropical climate. Welcome to Soneva Jani.
Arriving by our private seaplane from the international airport in Malé, you glimpse the string-of-pearl islands– the breathtaking rings of islands that make up the Maldives – their gleaming ivory sands contrasting with the turquoise blue waters of the Indian Ocean.
Along the equatorial line that runs through the Indian Ocean lies an archipelago of 26 atolls made up of 1,190 coral islands that barely break the surface of the waters.
Soneva Jani, located in the Medhufaru lagoon in the Noonu Atoll, comprises five islands, the largest of which is Medhufaru, which is 150 acres in size. The resort can be reached by a scenic 40 minute seaplane flight direct from Malé International Airport, a 60 minute speedboat ride from Soneva Fushi, or by a leisurely halfday cruise from Soneva Fushi onboard Soneva in Aqua.
