Ultimate island getaway dreams come to life at the family-friendly and vast private villas by Soneva in the Maldives.
Tucked away in some of the remotest, yet accessible, parts of the Maldives, Soneva’s resorts promise a peaceful yet fun-filled family getaway at breathtaking locations. Soneva Fushi, for instance, sits daintily on the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, a natural treasure with magical experiences to reconnect with your loved ones at every turn. Soneva Jani recreates a similar ambience at the heart of a 5.6-kilometre lagoon in the Noonu Atoll where uninterrupted ocean views give you and your folks company. At both the properties, The Den offers an abundance of unforgettable and rare family experiences, perfect for kids and parents alike.
Together Time at Soneva Fushi
Picture an idyllic island dotted with 64 island villas and eight overwater villas of all sizes – from one to nine bedrooms – that open to expansive ocean or lush tropical views. That’s Soneva Fushi for you!
At Soneva Fushi, stay amid tropical open spaces complimented by tranquil indoor living to set the tone for an unforgettable family getaway. Add to this the luxury of space at the larger villas — ranging from three to nine bedrooms — where each member can enjoy privacy in each other’s company. Think lavish master bedrooms, expansive living areas, spacious outdoor dining spaces, and large outdoor bathrooms. Walk with your kids on idyllic walkways, relax with your partner at the expansive decks, take a dip together in shaded plunge pools, or unwind at the spa, gym, sauna and steam rooms in some of the larger villas. Elevate this family fun at Soneva Fushi by hosting dinners in the sunken dining area, gazing out at the mesmerising sunsets from the balcony, or simply lazing in and around curves of lagoon-like pools.
One with Nature at Soneva Jani
Across the Indian Ocean at Soneva Jani, overwater villas and beachside island villas in the natural beauty of the surroundings make for a great family break. With up to four bedrooms and vast living spaces, each water villa here opens to a personal stretch of a sparkling lagoon, making family bonding in paradise a bliss. Add to this an infinity pool and a retractable roof to stargaze from the master bedroom, and a spectacular castaway experience is guaranteed. If that isn’t enough, each of the larger over-water villas come paired with slides from the first floor to the lagoon! On land, the three- and four-bedroom reserves boast individual private beaches and verdant garden jungles.
Irrespective of the room, find stunning views in all directions, as well as water slides, fitness rooms, kitchenettes with fully stocked mini-bars, outdoor bathrooms and temperature-controlled wine vaults to attend to your smallest needs.
Family Fun at Soneva
No matter the age, there’s a lot to see and do for families at Soneva. Explore the constellations with the resident astronomer at the Observatory, watch a classic movie at the open-air Cinema Paradiso, take a guided snorkelling expedition to the house reef, swim with manta rays in Hanifaru Bay, picnic on a deserted sandbank, or even try the art of glassblowing at the Maldives’ only hot glass studio.
For the more curious younger Sonevians, The Den is the place to be. Available at both the tropical retreats–of which The Den at Soneva Jani was launched in August last year, while its counterpart at Soneva Fushi has cemented its position as one of the largest children’s zones in South Asia for many years–The Den plays host to an ever-changing weekly programme of activities and experiences to keep children engaged and entertained.
From a soothing sensory room for toddlers; music, LEGO, dressing up, and creativity activities for children; to even hidden hangout spots – complete with mocktails and music – for teenagers. Older children and teens can even join the Soneva Academy in the Maldives, where learning is taken beyond the classroom with immersive courses to cater to curious minds.
For even more family fun in Maldives, Soneva has launched the Ultimate Family Offer at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani. When booking a minimum stay of four nights, children aged up to 15 years receive a complimentary full board dining when sharing with two adults. Plus, they even get access to a range of Soneva’s signature child-friendly experiences!
If you’re looking for a perfect family getaway and looking at upping your summer holiday bliss, then Soneva is the place to be.
