Cutting-edge medical innovation meets ancient healing for a personalized, transformative wellness experience.
NEW YORK - Soneva, the pioneering luxury resort operator in the Maldives and Thailand, has announced the launch of Soneva Soul, a new wellness brand that combines thousands of years of ancient healing with modern science and medicine to reconnect mind, body and soul.
“Wellness permeates all that we do at Soneva: 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,” says Sonu Shivdasani, CEO and Co-Founder of Soneva. “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 personalized wellbeing experience.”
Offering each guest at Soneva Fushi, Soneva Jani and Soneva Kiri a personalized experience, Soneva Soul will be comprised of: resort spas; movement, sleep, yoga and meditation programs; wellness and lifestyle products; a global network of acclaimed wellness specialists; and innovative, regenerative medical services.
The new Soneva Soul Island Spa at Soneva Jani elevates guests’ wellness experience far beyond the treatments and massages found at a typical wellness center or resort spa. Linked by raised walkways that wind among the trees, the three-level complex is designed to blend in with its stunning setting. Complementing the existing overwater Spa at The Gathering, it includes open-air treatment rooms, consultation suites, therapeutic biomodulation rooms, a state-of-the-art gym and juice bar. A yoga pavilion and meditation platform sit high above the tree line, offering 360-degree views across the lagoon.
Working in partnership with each guest, Soneva Soul’s wellness experts will curate individual wellness journeys. Based upon guests’ specific goals, the treatment menu at each Soneva Soul unites traditional wellness philosophies, such as Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, herbalism and medicinal mushrooms, with cutting-edge treatment methodologies and therapeutic biomodulation, which will include heart rate variability testing, platelet-rich plasma (PRP therapy), nutrient IV therapy, cryotherapy, ozone therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Led by master fitness trainers and bodywork experts, the Soneva Soul Movement Program balances functional gym-based fitness with natural free movement techniques and experiential fitness, such as jungle gyms and deep-water aquatic fitness sessions. The Yoga, Pranayama Breathing and Meditation Program reinforces the link between mind, body and soul, with one-on-one and group sessions with resident yoga masters and renowned visiting experts. And an expert-led Sleep Program creates a personalized program for healthier long-term sleeping habits.
