This resort has been a social media sensation, featured on countless blogs, Instagram accounts and Facebook pages. With picture-perfect water-villas scattered around turquoise water, it’s not hard to see why Soneva Jani is regarded by many as the ultimate traveller’s paradise.
The villas sit on stilts just above the water ensuring unobstructed views in every direction. As far as the eye can see, there’s an extravaganza of colour with myriad different shades of blue. To say that the villas are luxurious is a gross understatement. Even the smallest one, the One Bedroom Water Retreat, comes with a private infinity pool, a walk-in minibar, a study, a rooftop terrace and a sun deck (you can also book a variant with a water slide!). If this is already enough to get your head spinning, wait until you hear about the other villas. Hammocks, catamaran nets, sliding roofs so you can sleep under the stars… the list goes on and on. Safe to say, everything you have ever dreamt of in a holiday house is definitely here. And on top of that, a gourmet restaurant on site serving chef’s specials all day long.
Included in the price is a wide selection of extra services. You can go paddleboarding, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing or take a snorkelling trip with the resident marine biologist. You’ll get around on a complimentary bike and spend the evenings watching films under the stars or enjoying the sunset cocktail parties. And in honour of the most faithful desert island companion, you’ll be served by a private butler, Mr. or Mrs Friday.
Usually, you ask yourself “What’s included in the price?”, but this time it’s definitely more of a “Is there anything not included in the price?”.
