There are many luxury hotels in the Maldives, but Soneva Jani may just be the best. Many of these island resorts have picturesque villas sitting on stilts over the water, stunning scenery and special amenities, but Soneva Jani takes this to a new level. The resort offers 24 palatial overwater villas all with a full-size private pool and direct access to the glittering lagoon. The sopectacular villas also have a water slide, outdoor bathroom, and a retractable roof so you can watch the stars from the comfort of the master bedroom. The resort also has an open air cinema, watersports, dive centre, an overwater observatory and resident astronomer. This is the Maldives at its most magical, and it is definitely on our bucket list.
