This visit to the amazing Soneva Jani completed my visit to all three land-based properties in the Soneva chain of resorts, the other two being Soneva Fushi at Kunfunadhoo in Baa Atoll, Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Koh Kood, South Thailand. In comparison with six other Maldivian resorts that I recently experienced, I can attest that Soneva Jani is certainly at the apex of luxury resorts not just in Maldives but worldwide.

Visitors looking to enjoy the Maldivian paradise can be overwhelmed...

Soneva Fushi Resort Premium Robinson Crusoe adventure Maldives

Soneva Fushi is one of the earliest Maldivian luxury resorts (established 1995) and one of the most distinctive too, with its early emphasis on environmental sustainability and barefoot luxury.

Centara Grand Island Resort and Spa was one of the resorts on the list. The Centara brand name is familiar to me as it is one of Thailand's leading hotel group, which is highly regarded for its excellent service.  Having inspected another resort, the Lux* South Ari Atoll just a two days prior to arriving at this resort, I...

Travel Tips Sharing. Reviews LUX South Ari Atoll Maldives Jensen Chua Travel Blog

The very mention of Maldives always conjures up image of a tropical paradise - crystal clear turquoise water, coconut palms on white sandy beaches, amazing marine life and luxury resorts. Many of my friends even have the perception that these fabled atolls are basically romantic vacation places for honeymooners with little else to do except sun, sand and sea.
