An ultra-luxurious 23-metre yacht, Soneva in Aqua combines Soneva’s signature hospitality with the freedom of a private charter. Sailing from Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives, voyages range from day trips to longer, live-aboard adventures.

Your Private Yacht

Ideal for up to four adults and two children, the two-bedroom yacht has spacious decks and elegant interiors, including an on-deck Jacuzzi, dining areas, and glass-bottomed spa tub. The experienced crew onboard includes the captain, local skipper and fishing guide, Barefoot Guardian, chef, wellness therapist and mechanic. On request, they can also be joined by a dive master, surf instructor, astronomer or digital storyteller to capture photos and videos.
Each bespoke trip is tailored to guests’ needs, whether they want to explore the best surf breaks or dive spots, drop anchor at deserted islands, or simply sail towards the sunset.

Alternatively, sail between both resorts for a unique multi-destination holiday with the Sea, Sand and Sail package. The yacht can also be chartered for a range of experiences on the Indian Ocean or for special celebrations and intimate weddings.

Every voyage on our luxurious yacht in the Maldives is tailored to you and your guests. Before you arrive, plan the perfect itinerary with our Reservations Team, then plot a course with our captain to enjoy one-of-a-kind experiences, both onboard or at sea.

Soneva in Aqua Day Experience​​

After your on-shore breakfast, the captain and crew will welcome you aboard Soneva in Aqua and set sail for the snorkelling areas within the Baa Atoll, the only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in the Maldives. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, dolphins and possibly manta rays (*season and weather dependent). Enjoy a bespoke lunch menu on-board, prepared by your personal chef. After lunch, grab your fins, mask and snorkel for some underwater sightseeing in some of the best spots in the area, followed by some hard earned relaxation time in the sun or in our outdoor Jacuzzi. Enjoy a personalised treatment of your choice from our on-board massage therapist. As the sun sets, lie in our bowsprit nets and search for playing dolphins. The chef will prepare canapés and pop the sparkling wine upon your return to Soneva Jani.

Baa Atoll Discovery

A three-day, two-night trip covering the best of the Baa Atoll, including culture, relaxation, and marine life. Look for dolphins and live the castaway life with a picnic on a sandbank. Snorkel and dive reefs teeming with fish and coral. Visit Goidhoo’s gardens and coffee shops as you learn about the history of the three islands. After breakfast, we will welcome you on-board Soneva in Aqua where we will set sail to the deserted island for reef snorkelling (passing by turtle point and dolphin lookout), followed by a Castaway Picnic. 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.

Boom Swing

Why simply jump off Soneva in Aqua’s upper deck when you can swing off like Tarzan? We attach a rope to the yacht’s boom and you’ll be swinging in no time

Soneva Surfari

The Baa and Noonu Atoll have several local spots in addition to Goidhoo, which is one of the most well-known areas in the Maldives for surfing. Soneva in Aqua is the perfect platform for a surfing holiday, the added benefits of having your very own world-class chef, spa therapist, surf instructor – and lets not forget having a private tender to take you right to the breaks – make this a package not to be missed.

Jigging for Chokka

Try your hand at catching squid after the sun has set and the stars are out. Learn how to use a very specific jig and a bright light to lure in the squid.

Reef Glider

The Reef Glider experience, the only one of its kind in the Maldives, on Soneva in Aqua is a unique way to explore the magnificent underwater world and encounter curious dolphins along the way. As you fly through the depths on a glider, there’s no need to hold on – the supporting seat means you only use your hands to adjust your descent and ascent. With minimal effort, you can relax and stay under the water for much longer periods of time, taking in those magnificent subaquatic views. Dolphins are fascinated by the sled, and will swim right up to take a friendly look. Guests wanting to try the Reef Glider experience will need to be able to swim and should be comfortable in the water without a life jacket.  
Dining Experiences on board with Soneva in Aqua, yacht in the Maldives

Ever Soneva So Connected: Four-Atoll Adventure

Get the full Maldivian island experience by exploring four of the most beautiful Atolls in the archipelago: the Baa Atoll, the Raa Atoll, the Noonu Atoll and the Lhaviyani Atoll*. Day one: After boarding Soneva in Aqua, hoist the sails and make passage to the northern Baa Atoll with a full day of activities, spa sessions and customised meals prepared by your very own chef. Anchor in the shallow waters of Veyofushi, where dolphins and manta rays swim playfully. Island excursions are a guest favourite, as well as sunset on our top deck with cocktails and canapés before a candle-lit, four-course dinner. Day two: Start with a sunrise yoga session and a light breakfast then sail to the Raa Atoll, with its many islands and shallow reefs. Right up until the 1990s, this atoll was off-limits to tourists so is relatively unspoiled. There is even a ghost island left from the tsunami of 2004. Raa Atoll offers many fabulous locations to swim, snorkel and perhaps explore on our stand up paddleboard. A leap off the top deck of the yacht is another guest favourite! You can also enjoy having your own on-board spa therapist with a massage in the privacy of your own cabin or on any one of our many decks. Day three: Begin your third day with a fresh coffee and island breakfast before making passage to the Noonu Atoll. Here you’ll see an abundance of sea life in and around its many reefs. Snorkel or dive at locations such as Christmas Rock, often frequented by sharks. Stop for a late lunch at The Crab Shack at the Soneva Jani, recently voted the ‘World’s Most Romantic Restaurant’ on Return to the yacht and sail to a protected anchorage where it is not uncommon for spinner dolphins to put on a sunset aerial display. Day four: Enjoy a wellness session of sunrise meditation or yoga before breakfast. Be awed by snorkelling with the highest density of fusiliers and snappers in the Maldives, then rest on the top deck with a spa treatment while we cross over to the Lhaviyani Atoll. The diving here is exceptional, with only five occupied islands in the whole atoll. After lunch, dive the Kuredu Caves and spot sleeping turtles resting in the underwater caverns and nooks. Anchor off Vavaru Island, which is perfect for a private beach barbecue and a star-gazing session. Day five: Get the adrenaline flowing after a morning meditation by swinging off the boom into the calm waters surrounding our anchorage. Relax and unwind on the stern hammock hanging over the ocean as we leave the anchorage and head back to the Baa Atoll. The route back takes us right past the unique Hanifaru Bay, which in season attracts hundreds manta rays and whale sharks, both of which are amazing to swim with. Enjoy your last spa treatment after a light lunch as we head back to Soneva Fushi. *Note: This itinerary can be customised based on your preferences.

Noonu Atoll Guided Snorkelling​

Take an aquatic adventure through the waters of the Noonu Atoll and discover the diversity of Maldivian marine life, guided by our resident Marine Biologist. The atoll-native sea turtles and rays may make a special appearance, as you experience the magnificence of life below the sea.

Dining Experiences

The Soneva in Aqua crew comes with your own dedicated chef. Every meal is tailored to you, whether a healthy sunrise breakfast on deck, a barbecue with the catch of the day on a deserted island, or a Maldivian banquet under the stars. The freedom of choice is yours on the high seas.

Wellness on Soneva in Aqua

Our experienced crew includes a dedicated wellness and yoga expert. Start the day with sunrise yoga on deck, indulge in a massage, or meditate under star-strewn skies.
