Sister property Soneva Fushi was the pioneer of barefoot luxury. It made its name on the no shoes, no news philosophy. Judging by the high proportion of repeat guests, it was – and is – a smart decision. And now things have got even smarter with the opening of a second resort which boasts the same ethos with just a little more polish. Refined and elegant, the 24 overwater bungalows in the Chapter 1 cluster are the epitome of luxury; Chapter 2 has just launched which just about doubles the original offering. Each unit leads off of a snaking wooden walkway that leads visitors out over the lagoon. To reach Soneva Jani, arrive at Malé International Airport in daylight for a 45 minute seaplane transfer. Alternatively, hop on a domestic flight to Maafaru and cover the 8 nautical miles to Soneva Jani by speedboat.
Many of Soneva Jani’s overwater bungalows are equipped with their own slide; taking a dip just got a whole lot more fun. Inside is just as wonderful with a retractable roof which opens up so you can watch the stars from your bed. Add other features like your own Mr or Mrs Friday, a personal wine fridge and private pool and you can see why the Soneva brand gets tongues wagging.
