Here’s why Soneva Jani is Maldives’ most extravagant resort and gives you the most intimate experience.

the rest. Soneva Jani is one such example. And not just in any regular country, but in Maldives. Tourism being its main
source of income, the country witnesses fierce competition among its resorts who compete to provide ultra-luxurious
experiences to their clients. Soneva Jani has managed to beat the traditional capital rich brands and manages to
dominate the space with its rich pool of offerings.
