The Private Reserve at Soneva Gili in the Maldives was unveiled last month, creating the criterion by which overwater luxury is measured.
It could be likened to the calibre of a presidential suite, but then the comparison stops there as nothing compares with this reserve. The Private Reserve is made up of six buildings, which house two master suites plus accommodation for guests, and extensive leisure areas. A private spa features a sauna, steam room as well as a chill shower, and massage pavilion and an air conditioned gym.
A personal Mr & Mrs Friday are on call at all times – with their own on-premise quarters. There is also a waterslide into the lagoon. The Private Reserve covers an area of 1,400 sqm. The complex also includes a kitchen and wine cellar, and vast central living and entertaining area. And all this is created in the ecologically-friendly rustic chic style of Soneva. Arrival is from across the azure lagoon of Soneva Gili. Disembark into a glass-floored foyer with daybeds and seating arrangements. Ahead lies the central entertaining pavilion. The stunning Private Reserve at Soneva Gili complements the unique setting of the Maldives’ first all-over-water resort, which opened in 2002 with 44 villas and residences.
