Soneva Academy

We are delighted to introduce you to the Soneva Academy, which offers educational courses to children and teenagers (aged 12 and up) at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani. All our courses consist of four modules (3 sessions and one exam). The certification level takes young Sonevians from junior to expert, adding a new dimension to their schooling.   

Snorkel with Manta Rays​

Join us as we search for the enigmatic, graceful, inquisitive and charismatic manta rays in the waters of the Baa Atoll. If the conditions are right, we will go to Hanifaru Bay, located only 20 minutes by speedboat from Soneva Fushi, which has one of the world’s largest population of manta rays. When time and tide align, fortunate snorkellers get to observe and capture a rolling, whirling feast where it may be possible to see hundreds of these large, yet harmless, creatures congregate to gorge themselves in the plankton-rich waters. There are also several other locations close to Soneva Fushi where manta sightings are common, so the exact itinerary of the trip may vary to maximize the chance of seeing these magnificent creatures. If mantas cannot be seen on the trip, the Marine Biologists will lead an underwater discovery tour to showcase the stunning scenery of the marine life in the Baa Atoll. *Manta sightings are frequent but not guaranteed.

Sonu’s Picnic​​

Take your castaway experience to another level, and try Sonu’s favourite – lunch on a desert island prepared by your own personal chef. Dip yourself in the crystal clear blue lagoon with our in-house snorkelling guide while your chef prepares gourmet temptations in the most romantic of settings.

Castaway Picnic​

Let us whisk you away to one of our lush, uninhabited islands for a true castaway experience. Hop aboard our boat and sail to the island with your picnic basket and snorkel gear where you will be left to enjoy your day in the sun.

Astronomical Dinner Cruise​​

This incredible experience begins at late sunset, featuring a four-course meal with wine pairings. Our resident Astronomer will guide you through the wonders that stare back at you across the night sky, sharing secrets of the cosmos. View Menu

In the afternoon, enjoy a spa treatment from our Soneva in Aqua spa menu on the beach, in the privacy of your cabin or on the upper deck. As the sun sets, relax on our spacious outdoor loungers with sparkling wine and canapés while enjoying the sights and sounds of the Baa Atoll. Don’t forget to look out for dolphins! When you’re ready, a four-course meal will be served. Enjoy learning about the very unique Maldivian sky, which reveals stars and constellations from both the northern and southern hemispheres, before retiring for the evening. Start fresh in the morning with sunrise yoga on the foredeck followed by a short sail to the islands or reefs of your choice. In keeping with our exceptional culinary standards, our on-board chef offers only the freshest, world-class ingredients for all of your on board meals, and can even cook up an on-shore BBQ on Castaway Island. With two snorkelling sessions per day, simply inform the crew what you’d like to see and they’ll take you to a hidden reef unknown to both visitors and locals in the Maldives. For Open Water certified divers, custom packages and dive sites can be discussed based on ability in collaboration with the Soleni Dive Centre. There are unlimited islands, sandbanks and reefs to explore within the Baa Atoll. For the adventurous, Goidhoo offers the largest lagoon in the atoll with three islands that offer local excursions, guest houses, sandbanks, uninhabited islands and more. As an important historical site and former prison island, guests can soak in the history while also visiting the many gardens and coffee shops. Depending on the season, dolphin, manta ray and pilot whale sightings are common. In the morning, enjoy a sunrise Tai Chi session on the deck followed by breakfast, before returning to Soneva Fushi.
