About Soneva Jani, Maldives
World-famous Soneva Jani is the holy grail of luxury travel for many Instagram fashionables because it offers unrivaled photo opportunities. Located on an uninhabited five-island cluster in the Noonu Atoll, the Maldives’ most exclusive and game-changing hotel is fringed by pristine beaches, blanketed with lush tropical greenery, and surrounded by a 5.6 km (3,4 mi) lagoon of crystal clear waters with uninterrupted Indian Ocean views.
Each one of the 24 water villas has a private lap pool and opens to its own stretch of the lagoon, with most villas also featuring slides going directly from the top deck into the lagoon below. The highlight of the villas is the retractable roof in the master bedroom, which slides back at the touch of a button so that guests can lie in bed, stargaze, and take an Instagram selfie.
Soneva Jani also features in the lists of the best luxury hotels in the Maldives, the most fabulous overwater villas in the Maldives, the best new luxury hotels of 2016 and the most astonishing beach retreats in Asia.
While the industry searches for concrete solutions to inspire more travel engagement, there’s no denying that social media is one of today’s greatest travel drivers, with Instagram being a primary source of inspiration.
