Soneva Secret, an exclusive private island in the most remote corner of the Maldives, is about to open its doors. The latest masterpiece from the world’s leading sustainable resort operator, Soneva, this island in Haa Dhaalu Atoll promises an escape into a world that uniquely combines luxury, nature and sustainability.
A hidden paradise
The upcoming opening on 10 January 2024 marks a significant moment in the history of luxury resorts. Soneva Secret, located in one of the most secluded corners of the Maldives, offers its guests unrivalled seclusion and tranquillity.
Architectural masterpieces: the villas
With just 14 exclusive beach and overwater villas, including the unique Crusoe Villas and the ground-breaking Castaway Villa, the Maldives’ first floating villa, Soneva Secret redefines luxury. Each villa, harmoniously embedded in the natural beauty of the surroundings, offers direct access to the white sandy beach or the sparkling lagoon. The thoughtfully designed master suites with sliding roofs invite you to fall asleep under the stars, while additional bedrooms offer plenty of space for family and friends.
A refuge for marine fauna
The secluded location of Soneva Secret allows manta rays, whale sharks, dolphins, turtles and other marine life to roam the surrounding waters undisturbed.
Sustainability and comfort in perfection
The Soneva Secret villas seamlessly combine living and sleeping areas and offer spacious bathrooms as well as private gyms, spa treatment rooms and kitchens. Thoughtful details, such as the option of separating bedrooms to save energy, emphasise the resort’s commitment to sustainability and CO2 neutrality.
Tailor-made luxury and culinary highlights
The Soneva Secret offers a first-class service, which is guaranteed in every villa by a Barefoot Guardian and Assistant. The resort’s 14 private chefs take guests on customised culinary journeys that can be enjoyed both in the privacy of the villas and in picturesque locations around the island.
Exceptional culinary experiences

So Primitive: A fine dining experience with your feet in the sand around a fire pit.
The Living Room: The centrepiece of the island, a relaxed dining and living room that also houses a library, a boutique and Soneva’s famous ice cream, chocolate and cheese rooms.
Accessibility – A dream in the distance
Soneva Secret is accessible via a variety of routes, including a 75-minute seaplane flight from Velana International Airport in Malé or a scenic full-day cruise from Soneva Fushi.
The Soneva Secret represents a new era of luxury travel where sustainability, seclusion and personalised service take centre stage.
