Soneva Secret 2024 Transfer Options

The Soneva experience begins when you arrive at Velana International Airport in Malé. You will be greeted by a Soneva Representative after you have collected your luggage and pass through the exit doors, who will be holding a wooden sign saying “Soneva”. Our representative will escort you to the Soneva lounge, just a five minute car ride away.

Please ensure your international flight lands in Malé no later than 15:00 for your seaplane connection. If you have a later flight, we have an alternative domestic transfer option.

There are two seaplane choices available: either the Soneva seaplane or the Manta Air seaplane. The Soneva seaplane is private and more comfortable, while the Manta Air seaplane carries slightly more passengers and may stop en-route at other destinations before arriving at Soneva Secret 2024. Please be aware that the Soneva seaplane is operated by Manta Air, so we are bound by their timings and regulations.

All guests who have pre-booked and paid for the Soneva Seaplane, but instead transfer from or to Malé on the Manta Air seaplane, will receive a resort credit as compensation, valued at USD 150 nett per person per voyage during peak season, and USD 100 nett per person per voyage during shoulder season. The resort credit can be redeemed against experiences and spa treatments, excluding third parties and retail outlets.

Private Charters to Maafaru International Airport

Experience Soneva’s world-leading hospitality from the moment your plane touches down at Maafaru International Airport in the Noonu Atoll. Your personal Barefoot Guardian will meet and greet you from your flight, assisting with immigration and customs to ensure that your journey is as fast and seamless as possible. With our private seaplane service between Maafaru Airport and Soneva Secret, you’ll soon arrive at the resort and feel the sand between your toes, thanks to a transfer time of just 25 minutes.

CIP Services

Fly in style from Malé to Soneva Secret with a private charter on Soneva’s own seaplane or a Manta Air seaplane.  We offer complimentary CIP services to all guests spending a minimum of USD 12,500 per person, per stay in their room at Soneva Secret (room rate only, other services not included). Accompanying children will also receive complimentary CIP services.

The service includes being met at the stairs of the aircraft and escorted through immigration to the lounge to wait for your onward transfer. The passport details of all the passengers are required at least 72 hours prior to the arrival date to arrange the CIP service.

*CIP service cannot be arranged for the following airlines on departure due to the airline’s rules and regulations: Air France (AF), Austrian Air (OS), Lufthansa (LH & 4Y) and Edelweiss (WK & LX)
