Newly opened, the Soneva Jani Residences Resort is designed to impress over and over again with rather large ‘rooms' that are more homes than anything else. A stay at this resort emphasizes fun and adventure and is extremely kid friendly, making it a great option for those traveling with young ones in tow. All in all, guests will find 24 unique overwater suites to choose from, each styled and designed differently from the next.

Guests will also find a plethora of dining options, adventure activities both within the resort and close by as well as a few great resort features that allow you to wind down after a day of fun.

Overwater villas and suites

All together, there are 4 different overwater rooms to select from, with 3 different styles- a 1 bedroom, a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom suite. However different each of these categories may be in space, they all feature the same wide variety of amenities. These amenities range from air conditioning in the bedrooms, water views, a private butler, an adjoining kids sleeping area for added privacy, a walk-in mini bar, a dining area alongside a seating area and a retractable roof in the master bedroom that allows for easy stargazing at night.


Though the in-room amenities are impressive in their own right, that’s not where they end. In fact, guests will find even more enjoyable and surprising amenities on their very own private deck which also happens to feature a slide, a nicely sized private pool, sun loungers and an outdoor dining area with uninhibited ocean views.

Resort features and amenities

When it’s time to venture outside of your rooms, you’ll be treated to a selection of dining options from restaurants to a cafe to a few bars, each offering something different, making for a handsome variety of meal options. There’s even a juice bar on-site, allowing you a choice of healthy juices to enjoy as you cool off after a swim in the ocean.


In addition to the dining options available, guests will also find an outdoor pool, select water sport activities to join in on, a tennis court, gardens to explore, an overwater silent cinema, an eco-center that’s great for learning and a kid’s group. An on-site spa is also a great option for a relaxing morning in with a selection of massages and treatments. For those who are wishing to bring back a few gifts for loved ones and friends, or maybe even just themselves, the resort’s gift shop in the clubhouse offers some great pieces to choose from.

  1. Good afternoon from California, USA.
    I’m looking to visit Maldives in August 2021. Can you please tell me the Covid-19 restrictions for Maldives resorts and are all resorts now opened for vacationing??

    This will be a family vacation and what is a good recommendation for a family experience there at Maldives?

    Thank you and I look forward to hearing back from you.


    1. Lorraine,

      Maldives reopened its borders to tourists of all nationalities on 15th July 2020. There will be no further incoming travel restrictions to the country. So far there have been very few cases of COVID at any of the resorts and if you are vaccinated you should be fine.

      For families I highly recommend Meeru Island, which is among the largest islands and the most affordable for all-inclusives. Since it’s a large island they also offer more pools and activities than most others as well. Have a great trip! -Roger

  2. We are considering a 10 week stay and are avid scuba diverstrying not to break the bank
    We don’t need fancy we come for the diving. Any help would help. Where should we be looking for to be close to the diving?thanks Bob Hastings. 🌴🐋🦈😎

    1. Robert,

      Ten weeks in the Maldives is an extremely long stay and I’m not aware of any diving resorts that cost less than US$3,000 per week. You might try Indonesia as they have great diving resorts at much more reasonable prices. -Roger
