The new villas are flanked by several amenities like the private lagoon, with expansive terraces and freshwater swimming pools.


That’s the wonderful interior of the 2-bedroom reserve villa with sprawling living area, lounge areas, and fantastic ocean views.


The commodious bedroom looks airy, bright, and welcoming with abundant wooden textures, ample use of neutral whites, and stunning details like trunks, pendant lights, and a vintage wooden fan.


Some loved elements have remained intact in the new water reserves, like the transparent glass flooring under the dining table, making it easy to enjoy the blue waters even as you take a bite.


Part of Chapter Two is an eatery called Overseas by Swedish chef and restaurateur Mathias Dahlgren. The menu includes delicacies such as plant-based and pescatarian dishes and fresh produce procured from Soneva Jani’s organic gardens or sustainably caught in the waters around the resort.
