Soneva Jani’s Two-Bedroom Water Retreat named amongst world’s most over-the-top hotel rooms
Soneva Jani’s Two-Bedroom Water Retreat has been named amongst the world’s most over-the-top hotel rooms.
Listing the villa in its annual list, CNN said: “What’s better than an overwater bungalow in the Maldives? An overwater bungalow in the Maldives with its very own waterslide, of course. At Soneva Jani’s blissful Water Retreat, guests can literally slide into the sparkling turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean from their second-story living room.”
“Prefer more traditional luxury amenities? Not to worry: there’s a private infinity pool, overwater hammock and daybeds galore.”
This recognition comes a few months after Soneva Jani was crowned the World’s Sexiest Bedroom by The Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards 2018.
Opened in December 2016, Soneva Jani is leading luxury resort operator Soneva’s newest property and its second resort in the Maldives.
Soneva Jani encompasses a collection of 24 overwater villas and one island villa set in a 5.6 kilometre private lagoon located in the northern Noonu atoll. The resort spans five islands surrounded by pure white beaches, covered in rich tropical vegetation, offering the ultimate in privacy and luxury.
Each of the resort’s multilevel water villas has its own private pool and a retractable roof that allows guests to sleep beneath the stars. Many villas also have slides that transport guests directly from the top level into the lagoon below. Other hotel highlights include a spa, an observatory — home to the largest telescope in the Indian Ocean — and an outdoor cinema.
Since its opening, Soneva Jani has created a lot of buzz amongst luxury travellers with its exciting features such as the retractable roofs and the water slides. It has been named the Best Over-the-Top Luxury hotel of the year by Jetsetter.com, the best new resort in the world by CNN, and the Leading Luxury Hotel/Resort in South Asia and Leading Luxury Hotel/Resort in Maldives.
