The Baa and Noonu Atoll have several local spots in addition to Goidhoo, which is one of the most well-known areas in the Maldives for surfing. Soneva in Aqua is the perfect platform for a surfing holiday.

There are 13 surfing spots in the Baa Atoll and 11 in the Noonu Atoll, and many more to be discovered.

Surf season is dependent on Mother Nature's mood, though it does peak from May to October. Waves range from waist to head high.

The boat

Set sail for an unforgettable adventure on Soneva in Aqua, our luxury yacht in the Maldives and enjoy tailored experiences and itineraries.

Soneva in Aqua is our ultra-indulgent, 23-meter yacht. Guests can sleep in two spacious bedrooms, with en-suite shower rooms and a glass-bottomed spa tub in the master cabin. Everything you need is on board, including a dining area, bar, outdoor jacuzzi, library, lounge, Apple iMac computer, and WiFi.

Our crew includes a captain, head chef, mechanic, barefoot butler, and wellness therapist. In addition, we can add an astronomer, surf instructor, divemaster, or photographer upon request.

Dining

Enjoy all the Maldivian delicacies with the Indian Ocean around you. Our dedicated Sous-Chef on-board can conjure up your favorite dishes or craft a menu you created.

There are indoor, outdoor (on-board), and destination dining options available. Either way, they will all be memorable and distinctive. Come ready to experience Maldivian flavors and fish caught fresh from the ocean.

Activities

Plot a course for a half or full day on the waves, filled with one-of-a-kind aquatic experiences. Make unforgettable memories both above and below the waves. Find the best surf breaks, have fun with the kids by jumping off our boat in our boom swing or enjoy a family picnic on a deserted beach. Encounter incredible marine life in our dolphin sledding or nightly snorkeling tours. Star-gaze with an expert astronomer or fuel your adrenaline with a range of exciting water sports - from diving to skurfing or wave skating.

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.
