Food, Drink and Entertainment
Come gaze into the night sky at the twinkling jewel-like stars at our Observatory, the first overwater observatory in the Maldives. This popular experience has awed and amazed guests of all ages at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Kiri, and we’ve made the observatory at Soneva Jani even better. A sophisticated telescope rises up through the floor of the observatory deck, offering enchanted views of the starry sky. The deck is surrounded by four dining tables, at which you can dine if you wish. The tables are equipped with screens linked to the view from the telescope, allowing you to dine with the stars. Listen to our in-house astronomy talk about the world above us in a short introduction at the Observatory, or learn more in a private astronomy session. For a more special night to remember, organise a private dinner at So Starstruck, the observatory dining deck, and dine with the stars.
Cinema Paradiso is the first overwater silent cinema in the Maldives! Guests are provided with Bluetooth headphones, leaving the surrounding nesting wildlife at peace. We love classic and insipirational movies and have a twice weekly movie selection for both children and adults. Relax on the comfortable loungers under the stars, and snack on fresh popcorn. Private screenings and dining experiences can be arranged at extra charge.
The over-water Soneva Jani spa will be closer to a lifestyle centre, than a traditional, standardised spa. Inspired by the resort’s name (Jani means wisdom in Sanskrit), guests will be encouraged to learn new skills and to rethink their lifestyles with a focus on wellness. Our in-house experts will be on hand to offer advice to assist guests to heal, move, and ‘be’. Sitting above and within a stunning 5 kilometre lagoon, Soneva Jani’s spa will be surrounded by astonishingly turquoise waters…the perfect setting to enjoy treatments and work towards a healthier, purer, and happier self!. Spa treatments are complemented by the fully-equipped gym and yoga pavilion as well as sauna and steam rooms.
The library is located on the top deck of The Gathering and offers an inspiring and informative selection of literature on the Maldives and its magnificent underwater world. Browse the shelves and discover a different world amongst the pages. Get a preview of the amazing species you will discover on your next snorkeling or diving experience.
The heart of the resort, the Gathering is a three-storey overwater structure that is home to various dining outlets, as well as the spa, library, retail area and wine cellar. It is located next to the Observatory. Open at all hours of the day and night for drinking, dining, socializing, and daydreaming. The hours of the main restaurants in the Gathering are from 7:30-10:30 hrs for breakfast, 12.30-14.30 hrs for lunch and 19:30-22:30 hrs for dinner. The heart of the resort, here the day begins with a generous selection of hand-picked fruits, creative juices from the Juice Bar and comforting classics. During the day, guests can indulge in freshly-baked pizzas from the wood-fired oven, tandoors and grills at live cooking stations, and freshly caught and grilled-to-order seafood. On every Tuesday we will host an Asian buffet dinner after the Management cocktail at the North beach
