Soneva launches new wellness concept across all properties

Soneva Soul, combining ancient healing with modern medicine, will support global expansion with spa outlets around the world

Barefoot luxury resort operator Soneva has announced the launch of Soneva Soul, a new wellness brand that combines ancient therapy with the latest science.

Offering each guest a personalised pathway to health, happiness and fulfilment, Soneva Soul will encompass movement, sleep, yoga, meditation and spa programmes delivered by a global network of acclaimed wellness specialists.

Soneva Soul is now operational across all Soneva resorts: Soneva Jani and Soneva Fushi in the Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Thailand.

In the longer term, Soneva will also work with likeminded partners to launch wellness destinations across the world

Between now and early 2022, each Soneva Soul will establish a permanent team that includes an Ayurvedic doctor, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, integrative medicine doctor and highly trained therapists. The resident team will be complemented by a network of international visiting wellness specialists, selected for their expertise across a full spectrum of wellness practices, healing, fitness and spirituality.

Working in partnership with each guest, Soneva Soul’s wellness experts will curate a wellness journey that supports every aspect of their life. This includes rest, recovery and regeneration, as well as detoxification, movement and optimisation, following principles such as balance, mindful living and self care. 


Speaking about the launch, Soneva CEO and co-founder Sonu Shivdasani said: “Soneva Soul is the culmination of everything we have learned since we launched our spa at Soneva Fushi in 1995, the very first resort spa in the Maldives. Much like Soneva, at Soneva Soul we are pioneering an approach that combines apparent opposites to offer our guests a transformative and personalised wellbeing experience.

“Wellness permeates all that we do at Soneva,” adds Sonu, “Our sustainable, barefoot philosophy that reconnects our guests to the earth; our life-affirming natural locations; our delicious yet health-focused cuisine; and our life-changing guest experiences.
