The Maldives beg to be explored by yacht. How else to discover deserted islands, remote beaches and the kaleidoscopic marine life of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. That’s where Soneva in Aqua comes in. This luxury yacht accommodates just four adults and two children for an intimate experience and a bespoke itinerary.
Measuring 23 by 6.4 metres, the yacht has been designed with relaxation in mind. Natural materials including rich brown leather, wood and organic cotton are gentle on the eye, so the real star – the natural beauty of the Maldives – can take centre stage. Spacious decks with daybeds, dining areas and an outdoor Jacuzzi offer great vantage points to enjoy the spectacular scenery. Inside the master bedroom, a sunken spa bathtub with a glass-bottom promises a unique look at the marine life below.
The yacht comes with a highly trained crew including a captain, chef, mechanic and a massage therapist. Between them, they’ll ensure a seamless adventure. Surf the atolls’ mightiest waves, snorkel with dolphins and turtles or opt for scuba diving with graceful manta rays.
