Whether your children like learning, exploring, or splashing, they’ll love Soneva.
SONEVA’S AWARD-WINNING RESORTS are known for elevated natural luxury in breathtaking locations. With two resorts in the Maldives and one in Thailand, Soneva also has a wide range of family activities that ensure young guests get as much out of their visit as their parents.
Soneva Fushi, with its idyllic location in the Maldives’ UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Baa Atoll, offers magical family experiences at every turn. Kids love exploring the night sky at the observatory with an astronomer or swimming with manta rays in Hanifaru Bay. The resort also features one to nine-bedroom island and overwater villas perfect for families.
Just a short flight away, in a 5.6-kilometer lagoon in the Noonu Atoll, Soneva Jani is one of the world’s lowest-density resorts, offering endless ocean views in all directions. The award-winning resort recently launched a One Bedroom Island Family Retreat and Two Bedroom Island Retreat, both featuring private slides into the lagoon that keep families splashing for hours.
In Thailand, Soneva’s signature sustainable luxury meets famed Thai hospitality at Soneva Kiri on Koh Kood – an unspoiled island located a 90-minute ﬂight from Bangkok. Kids love the lush island and unspoiled beaches, where they can snorkel around submerged statues and coral with the resort’s marine team or learn about local plants and animals on rainforest walks.
The Den is the favored location of Soneva’s young guests at each resort. At their kids’ clubs, each of the three resorts offers an ever-evolving program of weekly activities and experiences to keep children of all ages engaged.
Last year, Soneva Jani unveiled its all-new Den – an awe-inspiring two-story playground of more than 1,500 sq m, making it one of the largest kids’ clubs in the Maldives. Offering a technology-free family experience, the new playspace has a soothing sensory room for toddlers, music equipment, Lego area, dress-up and creativity facilities and a hidden hangout for teens with mocktails and music. Around the property, young adventurers can glide through a cascading waterfall on a zipline, dance on a musical piano floor, converse with whales and more.
Teens can join the Soneva Academy in both Maldivian locations and learn more about their surroundings. Designed for those 12 and over, the academy offers programs like Night Sky in the Maldives, Become a Birdwatcher, Zero Waste and Plastic Pollution in the Maldives, Mosquitoes and Mosquito-borne Diseases, Marine Life of the Maldives and the Adventure of the Corbin, a quest across the seas in the wake of an ancient galleon.
Each resort also offers an unforgettable array of rare family experiences.
In the Maldives, families can watch classic movies at the open-air Cinema Paradiso, take a guided snorkeling expedition to the house reef, picnic on a deserted sandbank or try glassblowing at the Maldives’ only hot glass studio.
In Thailand, they can join cultural exchanges to learn more about the local culture as well as visit nearby schools to meet new friends and create lasting memories.
Soneva just launched the Ultimate Family Offer at all three resorts to encourage families to try out the fun firsthand. When booking a minimum stay of four nights, children aged up to 15 years will receive complimentary full-board dining when staying with two adults.
The offer includes a range of Soneva’s signature child-friendly experiences, two hours of complimentary babysitting daily, welcome gifts and children’s arrival kits with baby accessories, highchairs, strollers, playpens, monitors, bottle warmers, bath mats and other supplies.
