Luxury Water Villas in the Maldives

Our overwater villas at Soneva Jani are located on the Chapter One and Chapter Two ends of Medhufaru island, with our island villas in the middle. While both ends are overwater villas, there are some differences.

Retreats: The Water Retreats are our original overwater villas, and have The Gathering in their midst. These 24 one to four-bedroom Water Retreats all have private pools, while the majority have water slides into the lagoon and a retractable roof over the master bed.

Reserves: The Water Reserves have an updated design, and are 30 percent larger than the Water Retreats, making them the biggest and most private in the world. The 27 one to four-bedroom Reserves have private pools, most have water slides into the lagoon and a retractable roof over the masted bed.

Staying in a Water or Island Reserve allows you the freedom to experience all of Soneva Jani with Soneva Unlimited. Think unlimited dining and drinks (even wines and Champagne) from all restaurants and bars, unlimited experiences around the resort, unlimited spa treatments, a personal Barefoot Butler, and much more.
