Any travel obsessed person might nod in agreement with one of our favourite pastimes – Adding destinations to that never ending bucket list. Right now at the very top of that list lies Soneva Jani, a luxury resort located on the 150-acre island of Medhufaru, part of an uninhabited five-island cluster in the Noonu Atoll of the Maldives.
Situated within a private 5.6-kilometre crystal clear lagoon with uninterrupted 360° vistas of the Indian Ocean, every water villa at Soneva Jani is equipped with its own 13-metre private pool. Some of these pools feature slides directly from the top deck of the villa into the lagoon below. Most villas boast a retractable roof in the master bedroom, which slides back at the touch of a button for guests to stargaze from bed, as well as three glass-bottomed areas to connect with the water below.
Soneva Jani is accessed by a 40-minute sea plane ride from Male International Airport and by a one hour speed boat from Soneva Fushi.
