So Starstruck at Soneva Jani

Step into a realm beyond the ordinary – Soneva Jani presents an extraordinary invitation to budding stargazers and dreamers. Nestled in the Maldives, this haven beckons you to its overwater observatory. It is a space where the universe becomes your canvas.

A celestial sanctuary

Why does the night sky above the Maldives hold such allure? The answer is quite simple. Here, on the islands scattered across 820 kilometres of the Indian Ocean, the luminous glow of urban lights fades away. Thus allowing the firmament to reveal its splendour. Positioned on the Equator, we're graced with a panoramic view of the entire heavens. 

Polaris, the North Star, rests at the brink of the northern horizon, while its southern counterpart mirrors it below. As our world pirouettes on its axis, constellations unfurl across the sky, and their stories become intertwined with our own. Throughout the year, all 88 constellations dance across the Maldivian night — and you can witness them at Soneva Jani!

A window to the stars

Soneva Jani unveils a wondrous device – a telescope, poised to ascend from the observatory floor. This marvel grants you unobstructed access to the celestial tapestry above. The resort’s resident astronomer stands ready, a guide into the mysteries of the universe. For those versed in the language of stars, private lessons await, a chance to delve deeper into the cosmos' enigma.

Dining under the cosmos

An experience both rare and divine awaits those who dare to dream. So Starstruck at Soneva Jani offers a celestial dining affair, where screens sync with telescopic visions. It’s a place where you can enjoy Soneva's culinary artistry as stars grace your table. Amidst constellations, stories of the cosmos weave seamlessly with the taste of every dish.

Bringing the stars home

The sky’s wonders are not only confined to the resort’s observatory. When you head to your villa after dinner, the Master bedroom roofs retract, unveiling the nocturnal heavens. As you rest, the stars become your companions, weaving dreams beneath their watchful gaze.

Soneva Jani offers more than a mere escape – it invites you to forge a connection with the universe and its wonders – the tapestries beneath the seas and above the skies. Here, the constellations whisper secrets, and galaxies spin stories. Dreams are stitched together with stars, creating memories that transcend time. Begin planning your starlit soirée now!
