Soneva expands its Maldives footprint with an ultra-luxe yacht


Remember that ultra-chic resort in the Maldives, which had waterslides arising from its interiors? Well the same hospitality brand, Soneva has emerged with a boat villa. Given Soneva’s signature hospitality and ultra-luxe properties in Thailand and the Maldives, guests can be assured a fabulous experience aboard the Soneva Aqua.


Honestly, Soneva’s newest kid on the block has our minds blown away! The two-bedroom yacht measures 19.25 meters in length and 6.40 meters in width with a cruising speed of 8 knots and can accommodate 4 adults and 2 children. While the master suite entails a glass-bottomed spa tub (which is Insta-perfect), both rooms also house an en-suite shower.

Here’s my ideal agenda aboard the Soneva Aqua. Begin your day with a refreshing dive lesson, followed by a fresh breakfast. Cherish your afternoons reading a book in the in-house library or possibly a massage on the sun-deck. Evenings can be reserved for sipping cocktails by the outdoor jacuzzi. Stargazing at night is almost mandatory!

After all, your crew in the Maldives is far from customary; think sous chef (of course), your butler Mr. Friday, a dive master, a massage therapist and an astronomer.

The Soneva hospitality brand has already obtained a strong foothold in the Maldives with their properties Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani. Only recently, we jetted to these magnificent palm-fringed atolls for a truly surreal experience.
