One of the most decidedly decadent experiences I have had is onboard the Soneva in Aqua. 

A two-bedroom, ultra-luxury 19-metre yacht of spectacular & classic proportions that would delight any boat enthusiast or yachtsman, Soneva in Aqua has been entirely refitted in bespoke Soneva fashion, rich leather joinery cleverly hiding all of the latest gadgets, mod-cons and technology from sight. 

Allowing you the luxury of choice to disconnect entirely, if that’s what you fancy. 

The expansive deck with masts and rigging stretching high into the Maldivian sky above could easily fit some 40 guests for a cocktail party under the stars I imagine, or if you are like me and prefer a more exclusive crowd, it’s perfect for two. 

The floor of the oversized master suite slides away to reveal a sunken spa with a glass bottom allowing clear vision to the depths of the clear turquoise ocean below.

The VIP suite offers a king-sized bed and also has en-suite facilities. Other features include an external raised sun and dining deck, a lower level bar and dining area plus daybeds, lounge seating and a Jacuzzi. Additional sun deck space is also available on a lower level for spa treatments and an internal library, lounge and dining room provide additional areas ideal for entertaining. The design throughout features natural materials such as rich brown leathers, woods and organic cottons. 

You can also enjoy the option of sleeping under the stars on the top sundeck. Stargazing is encouraged and the crew have been trained by the Soneva astronomer to assist you in discovering the skies at night.

Whilst supported by engine power, the yacht’s mainsail relies on nature to provide the majority of its energy, capturing the ocean breeze and magically gliding across the Indian Ocean, with stress levels dropping to zero.

Intuitive service is provided by your very own Mr./Ms. Friday butler who knows what you want before you want it. The captain, chef, housekeeper, spa therapist, diving instructor and Mr Friday are discrete with your comfort and privacy their absolute priority.   

A bespoke itinerary designed by the captain offers you the chance to explore exceptional reefs, deserted islands and breathtaking locations at leisure, and menus of fresh culinary delights are personalised by the chef to your taste. 

Spa treatments and wellness activities are available on board administered by the expertly trained spa therapist. Offering more than just friendly pampering, each holistic therapy provides an exhilarating sensory journey whilst at sea or on a secluded stretch of island. A private sunset massage on the sandbank, invigorating early morning Tai Chi or yoga on the deck – the possibilities are endless.

To visit the vibrantly coloured tropical marine life, day, night and sunrise scuba diving and snorkelling is guided by a personal instructor. Sailing lessons, including map reading, are also available.

Soneva in Aqua is moored only metres away from Soneva Fushi, the original desert island hideaway nestled in the turquoise waters of the Baa Atoll, UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. 

Soneva Fushi is the only resort on a private island blessed with an interior that is rich with vibrant vegetation, villas on shore are scattered along white beaches nestled against lush greenery that offers guests the ultimate privacy in which to relax as time melts away...

It’s amazing how this version of eco and understated luxury allows you to connect to yourself, to unwind and create memories in a way that is truly priceless. 

Soneva in Aqua offers guests the luxury to choose from various charter routes that sail around and beyond the Baa Atoll. You can choose between one, two and three-night excursions depending on how much of the awe-inspiring sights of the Maldivian Atolls you wish to explore. 

Singapore Airlines flies from Australia via Singapore to Male Airport, from there Soneva Fushi is a 30-minute seaplane ride.
