Soneva Jani Dining

Discover all of our dining destinations and experiences available at Soneva Jani and on the untouched islands surrounding us. Our Hosts are happy to customise each experience for a special occasion, celebration, or simply just because.

I would rate Soneva Jani 7 stars. It's an amazing place where you can disconnect from this world and make your dreams come true. The restaurants have a wide selection of seafood cooked by the best French chef in the world. My overall experience was amazing, wonderful, and the best of the best.

My husband and I stayed for five days in this heavenly resort. The food was perfect. Our Ms. Friday, Nicki, was there to help us with absolutely anything. To describe this place in one word, I would say..perfection!

It's definitely a must visit resort with excellent hospitality service. Chef Kevin Fawkes is a magician in the kitchen, preparing us Mexican, Thai, and European cuisine, as well as comfort snacks like Hawaiian pizza. The resort also serves really good breakfasts, with all kind of healthy juices. We will definitely come back.

From the moment we arrived we felt like we had found heaven. We were greeted by the most amazing friendly faces and fresh cold coconuts. The food in general - wow. We had wrapped banana leaf spiced fish that was roasted under the sand above charcoal. The Peruvian dinner was next level. For those that had allergies, everything was possible. Some of us enjoyed six course vegetarian menus without a problem, others that were allergic to fish were also able to enjoy plenty of good food. We will be back for sure!

I have not seen a better, more unique, and spectacular private island resort, and I travel to these sorts of properties for work all the time! The food and beverages were well thought out, creative, and unique. The quality was some of the best I have had. Just go and be ready for the trip of a lifetime.
