Soneva In Aqua to be Launched in 2014

Published

on

Maldives Promotion House – Another interesting project by Soneva Group has been announced as Soneva In Aqua. The idea is very simple. Take Soneva style and values and apply them to a movable destination. Luxury cruising doesn’t get any better than Soneva In Aqua, new highly refined sailing yacht for discovering the breathtaking locations in the Maldives. This 19 metre yacht offers unforgettable experiences for both divers and non divers alike with a choice of three or five day cruises.

Whilst supported by engine power, the main aim will be to harness the power of nature using the yacht’s principal mainsail.  The boat is designed for occupancy of four guests.  The food and drink menus will be carefully crafted by the resort’s executive chef and sommelier, making the most of Maldivian specialities using local produce (where possible grown at the resorts), line-caught fish fresh from the ocean and a selection of the best organic and bio-dynamic wines.

Soneva’s highly skilled crew on board includes a captain, chef, Mr./Mrs. Friday, dive instructor, a housekeeper and an optional spa therapist to complete the exhilarating, sensory journey whilst at sea.  Lessons from the crew are available on sailing, map reading and also the climatic affects on the local reef and its inhabitants.
