Soneva, the world’s leading sustainable luxury resort operator established in 1995. It comprises Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani in the Maldives and Soneva Kiri in Thailand. Soneva is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand.
As the custodians of pristine locations, Soneva is built on the foundation that a business must exist for a greater purpose than shareholder returns. We believe in a natural excellence in everything we do, whether it is delivering the ultimate guest experiences or providing energy to the rural poor in Myanmar through the Soneva Foundation.
We work at a community level to bring tangible change to people’s lives while simultaneously working with global leaders to shape policy and encourage public discourse. We teach Maldivian children to swim safely in the ocean while simultaneously providing an environmental education. We brought the leaders of ten of world’s largest seafood companies together to collaborate on ocean stewardship and form the SeaBOS initiative.
We work closely with local fishermen in the Maldives to ensure we get fresh fish caught using sustainable methods. Our membership of the International Pole & Line Foundation further strengthens our commitment to serving tuna that is caught using responsible and transparent fishing practicesArnfinn Oines (Social & Environmental Conscience at Soneva Jani)
