At Soneva, our unique experiences are in keeping with our interpretation of luxury. Authentic luxury is about feeling the sand between your toes or enjoying dinner under a canopy of a billion stars. It is about reconnecting with oneself and the natural world, and so the experiences we create for our guests are as far removed from the urban environment as possible. We intend to provide real luxury and rare experiences that strike a chord in our guests’ hearts.
As the first barefoot luxury resort, we have always been ahead of the curve. Today, our family of resorts continues to innovate and is a world leader for guest experiences and sustainability. We ask our guests if they would like to remove their shoes when they arrive. Our “No News, No Shoes” philosophy is all about disconnecting from the stresses of daily life and reconnecting with the earth with the sand between your toes.
With our expert hosts as your personal guide, we invite you to explore and delight in the possibility of each moment as time melts away and lose yourself in experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime.
