There are 13 surfing locations in the Baa Atoll and 11 in the Noonu Atoll; however, there are still more to be discovered. The Baa Atoll is the Maldives' only UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, with dolphins and manta rays paying frequent visits.
We don’t like to reveal where our surf locations are, as we hope to keep them pristine, rare, and secret. The surf breaks around our resort cater to skill levels from beginner to advanced, making it a great location for taking up surfing for the first time. Surf season is dependent on Mother Nature's mood, though it does peak from May - October. Waves range from waist to head high.
The original luxury desert island hideaway in the Maldives inspires the imagination with 63 luxury beachfront villas and eight water retreats. Find your perfect escape, whether you want to relax and unwind with your other half, an action-packed getaway with your friends or a fun-filled, unforgettable stay with your family.
Catch the sunrise from your private garden, or contemplate the sunset from your terrace. Sleep steps from the beach, with soft white sands and crystal-clear waters on your doorstep. Stay over water with panoramic ocean views. Or escape to a jungle hideaway, surrounded by unspoiled nature.

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.
