SONEVA JANI

Your Journey

Getting to Our Resort 

There are two main ways to arrive at Soneva Jani: either by seaplane from Velana International Airport in Malé, or by flying direct to Maafaru International Airport in the Noonu Atoll, which operates 24/7 and handles domestic and international flights and private charters.

When travelling through Velana International Airport, the Soneva experience begins from the moment you arrive. You will be greeted by a Soneva Representative holding a sign saying “Soneva” who will assist you with your local transfers.* To reach Soneva Jani from Malé, you can take a 45-minute private seaplane from Malé International Airport direct to the resort.

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 Jani. Please be aware that the Soneva seaplane is operated by Manta Air, so we are bound by their timings and regulations.

When arriving at Maafaru International Airport, 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. We provide a complimentary private speedboat service between Maafaru Airport and Soneva Jani, with a transfer time of just 15 minutes.

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

Seaplane Transfers:

  • Our representative will escort you to the Soneva lounge, just a five-minute car ride away.
  • Flight schedules are subject to Manta Air’s discretion.
  • Please ensure your international flight lands in Malé no later than 15:30 for your seaplane connection.
  • If your flight arrives later than 15:30 we can assist you in booking an overnight stay in Malé to catch the first seaplane flight at 09:00 or book you a domestic flight to Soneva Fushi to take a speedboat to Soneva Jani the next day.
