Among the star-studded lineup for the world’s most romantic destinations are the properties of the award-winning brand Soneva, bringing a scenic backdrop to your vacations. Draped in aquatic expanses of cyan blue, the sun-drenched shores of both Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani set the stage for a lover’s tryst this February 14th. Completing the picture are charming private villas, sinful gastronomy and indulgent wellness rituals to elevate your stay further.
At the eco-resort of Soneva Fushi, the lover’s journey begins at the break of dawn with a special floating breakfast experience at the resort’s private sandbank. Enclosed by blues as far as the eye can see, the first bite of the morning will truly be memorable in an idyllic setting. Moving on, reconnect with your better half on a spiritual level by immersing the body and soul in complimentary yoga and meditation sessions at the Soneva Soul.
At sunset, a Valentine’s Cruise is planned for all star-crossed lovers as they cruise the calming waters of Baa hand in hand. Couples can even make cherished memories onboard, by catching the friendly dolphins dip in and out of the ocean alongside the boat. Once the stars become visible in the night sky, the two of you can kick back into paradise once again for an intimate dinner. While live musicians serenade your partner, enjoy the company of your true love over a romantic dinner.
The night has yet to be expended, therefore, head to the Valentine’s Day screening at Cinema Paradiso, an open-air cinema in Soneva Fushi. The romantic classic, La La Land (2016) will be screened, closing the night with your lover on your arm. The itinerary is not exclusive to couples but includes families in the special offerings too. Family members can share their love in unique ways including exchanging pop-up cards or pillowcase printing at The Den. Moreover, young Sonevanians can also delight in a Valentine’s-themed treasure hunt and family Olympic Games on the island.
In Noonu, Soneva Jani ushers in Valentine’s day with a floating Champagne breakfast, indulged in the comforts of your very own private pool. Couples commemorating the day can also visit Soneva Soul, for an intuitive massage for both of them. Duos seeking a more bespoke way to celebrate can don their snorkelling equipment and hit the azure waters. A guided snorkelling session around the crystalline Noonu waters may just be what you’re looking for this February 14th!
The evening brings its suite of experiences, giving guests plenty of options to tailor their romantic day. So Engaging brings a ‘Loving Journey Around the World’ five-course set menu whereas So Primitive delivers a delectable seafood barbecue on the beach. Movie lovers can also plan their dinner at Director’s Cut which presides over the silver screen of Cinema Paradiso. Savouring the restaurant’s ‘Good Year’ Valentine’s menu while catching a romantic movie will undoubtedly be a coveted date night for many.
True romantics can spice up the romance further by swiftly making an escape to the white shores of a private island. Exchanging promises of love while gourmandizing a hearty meal is as romantic as it gets! On the island, young guests can also hop into the fun by partaking in card-making and Valentine’s crafts at The Den while their parents enjoy some quality ‘me time’ on the beach.
In addition to this, Soneva Jani also has in store several other private experiences, where couples can be intrigued. An exclusive dinner at So Starstruck might tickle your fancy as you and your partner gaze over the starlit sky with an on-hand astronomer. While exploring constellations, celestial bodies and more you may just believe that your fated love story had been written in the stars.
