Soneva Jani’s definition of Madivian travel is guests having their own stretch of lagoon in their villas. These are designed with retractable roofs in the master bedroom for stargazing; a personal wine cellar selection; a 13m private swimming pool and ajoining kids sleeping areas for larger families. In addition to 24-hour in-villa dining, guests can eat under the stars, or at the Observatory Deck – where feasts are accompanied by stories from its resident astronomer, or in the over-water, open-air cinema, where chefs complement the film with a bespoke menu. The resort is 40 minutes from Malé International Airport by seaplane and an hour on speedboat from Soneva Fushi. www.soneva.com.
