Inspiring Retreats in the Maldives & Thailand

Soneva’s barefoot resorts offer enriching escapes and rare experiences.

Since launching in 1995, Soneva has pioneered an entirely new style of responsible luxury travel. It has shown how sustainability and indulgence can go hand-in-hand, from dedicated organic gardens and Eco Centro waste-to-wealth centres at the heart of each resort, to working with independent non-governmental organisation Soneva Namoona to eliminate single-use plastic and introduce sustainable waste management across the Maldives – run in partnership with marine plastic foundation Common Seas.


Across all Soneva resorts in the Maldives and Thailand, guest experiences are designed to enchant and enthral. Meet with a sparkling line-up of Michelin-starred chefs, sports legends, wellness therapists and more with the Soneva Stars calendar. Join the passionate Marine Team for hands-on conservation efforts that really make a difference, such as coral restoration or monitoring critically endangered turtles. Swim with dozens of manta rays and cruise into deeper waters to watch playful dolphins in the light of the setting sun. Back on dry land, younger guests can let their imaginations run free at The Den children’s zones that feature an enthralling daily programme of activities.


At Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives, and Soneva Kiri in Thailand, the true definition of ‘luxury’ goes far beyond the material – instead, it means the time, space and privacy to disconnect from the everyday and the opportunity to immerse yourself in once-in-a-lifetime experiences that stay with you forever.

At Soneva Fushi, lush tropical vegetation captures the essence of a castaway fantasy. Across the Indian Ocean at Soneva Jani, overwater villas feature slides straight into the lagoon. And in the Koh Kood island of Thailand, Soneva Kiri’s private villas are nestled by the beach, hidden in the jungle, or commanding spectacular views from the clifftops.

Swapping land for sea, dive into fun with the Soneva in Aqua 23-metre yacht. Setting sail from Soneva’s resorts in the Maldives, Soneva in Aqua comes with the same superlative service as Soneva’s award-winning villas on land, including a Barefoot Guardian as part of the crew, a personal chef who will prepare bespoke menus and a wellness specialist that can provide an indulgent array of treatments on demand.
