Earlier On News: Soneva Secret To Open in January 2024

The operators of Soneva Fushi in Baa Atoll and Soneva Jani in Noonu Atoll has announced opening of their newest property in Haa Dhaalu Atoll. Named as Soneva Secret the resort would be opened in January 2024 on the island of Dhipparufushi. The tourism ministry of Maldives leased the island in 2018 for a period of 50 years for resort development. The island is 8.2 hectares in land size. Official records indicate the island is head-leased to Secret Venture Private Limited. The resort is set to welcome its first guest on 10 January 2024.

Soneva Secret is located amid a large lagoon near Makunudhoo island in remote parts of Haa Dhaalu Atoll. Earlier this year the government announced new domestic airport development at Makunudhoo. Once in operation it can easily transfer guests to Soneva Secret.

Makunudhoo is geographically known to have situated in its own atoll which is highly rich in biodiversity. The outer reef that is 30 miles long has plenty of space as natural habitat for the marine lives.

Development of ultra-luxury Soneva Secret is estimated to cost $40 million for the development, island acquisition cost remains undisclosed. The villas and residences will offer private experiences at the remote location. An estimated cost of $3 million or more will be spent for each residence. Nature inspired luxury villa are likely to portray wooden textures and natural materials as they in other Soneva properties.

Sonu Shivdasani, the co-founder of Soneva group, provided a glimpse of his secret paradise over a webinar with WGSN in which we said that each villa would have its own private butler and chef de partie. This indicates the villas will come with cooking facilities in each.

Maldives Finest, a local travel specialized in luxury tourism, offers hire of personal chef for short term holidays in some exclusive private islands. Guests can choose their favourite cuisine and Maldives Finest hires from a pool of professional chefs with extensive experience portfolio including cooking to celebrities.

Soneva Group currently owns and operates 2 resorts in Maldives that include Soneva Jani in Noonu Atoll and Soneva Fushi in Baa Atoll. The later was the first resort they opened in Maldives, it was actually the company's first business which they opened in 1995. Its founder, Sonu Shivdasani, is regarded in the tourism industry as the pioneer of ultra-luxury tourism in the Maldives.

Soneva Fushi offers 71 nature-inspired luxury villas. Located next to the local island of Eydhafushi, Soneva Fushi is one of the top resorts near Hanifaru Bay manta spot. The resort offers 28 different room categories and the smallest measures 145 sqm. The Private Reserve is the biggest villa, it measures 3048 sqm in size and there 9 bedrooms.

Soneva Jani is the newest property by the hotel chain. Located in Noonu Atoll, it comes with 58 villas of which 51 are located over the water and remaining 7 on the island. Featured on CNN and Forbes, the island is well known among the luxury travelers and is in high demand throughout the year, both summer and winter. Its unique architecture truly stands out and tastefully appointed villas featuring wooden texture gives the sensation of joyful life moments. Each water villa is built with privacy and breathtaking ocean views. The rooms on the beach are luxurious residences suitable for private beach holidays. Despite being so exclusive in terms of product features the resort also welcomes families. There is a castle-like kids club called Den, it offers variety of activities and fun for kids. Accredited by Worldwide Kids, having this facility enables parents to enjoy themselves out on excursions, spa or just some relaxing by the pool without kids around.

The villa concept and architecture of Soneva Jani proved to be highly successful. So much so that the company built similar villas in their other property in Baa Atoll. Therefore, we are fairly certain that villas in Soneva Secret would resemble something similar. It may be exactly the same in design but with more space in between villa to enhance privacy further. Otherwise, they may be little changes or improvements. Soneva’s retractable roof and waterslide are important elements that we expect to be featured in villas of Soneva Secret. The new island does not have much space like Soneva Fushi, otherwise we would anticipate organic farming.
