Wellness & Beauty
The over-water Soneva Jani spa will be closer to a lifestyle centre, than a traditional, standardised spa. Inspired by the resort’s name (Jani means wisdom in Sanskrit), guests will be encouraged to learn new skills and to rethink their lifestyles with a focus on wellness. Our in-house experts will be on hand to offer advice to assist guests to heal, move, and ‘be’. Sitting above and within a stunning 5 kilometre lagoon, Soneva Jani’s spa will be surrounded by astonishingly turquoise waters…the perfect setting to enjoy treatments and work towards a healthier, purer, and happier self!. Spa treatments are complemented by the fully-equipped gym and yoga pavilion as well as sauna and steam rooms.
Soneva Jani has plenty to offer in terms of activities and experiences. Join in on nature walks or cycling around the islands, or enjoy an array of water sports. The Soleni Dive Center provides fantastic diving in small groups, so guests can benefit from the instructors and their knowledge of the local marine life. Alternatively, relax at Cinema Paradiso, a comfortable over-water ‘silent cinema’ where the audio is played through individual headphones for each guest. Guests may also visit the hotel’s garden – the island was previously a farm and the gardens still remain to supply fruit and vegetable for the kitchen!
Soneva Jani is located on the island of Medhufaru, located in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. One of the largest islands in the Maldives and highly accessible, Medhufaru is only 40 minutes by seaplane from Malé International Airport and one hour by speedboat from Soneva Fushi.
