Island Escape: Soneva Redefines Eco-Luxury & Wellness With Mask-Free, Covid-19-Free Stays

The Maldives is among the first few destinations in Asia to open its borders to travellers. After months of uncertainty and restrictions around the globe, the luxury island atoll has secured stringent health and safety measures to ensure that guests feel safe and COVID-free during their stay. Soneva is an award-winning resort operator following the protocol, with the goal to create a COVID-19 free and eco-friendly environment on a private island resort. Recently introducing its mask-free arrangement at its Maldives resorts, Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani stay true to the highest standards of safety and hygiene through on-resort arrival testing and social distancing throughout the properties. Whisk yourself away at one of these far-flung island escapes, where you can feel the sea breeze again…
