WATCH: Highlights from the world of architecture and design.

Resort operator Soneva has announced the launch of Soneva Jani Chapter Two in the Maldives. Ready and awaiting luxury-seeking guests when global travel resumes, Chapter Two expands upon Soneva Jani’s prestigious portfolio of spectacular water villas, and introduces a fine spread of world-class dining venues in breathtaking settings.

The property’s 27 new over-water villas are accessed via a meandering jetty extending from the southern tip of the resort’s main island, carefully positioned to maximise privacy and create a true sense of seclusion. Surrounded by sparkling seas, the villas offer uninterrupted views from sunrise to sunset.

News highlights

  • Resort operator Soneva has expanded its luxury villa offering in the Maldives with Soneva Jani Chapter Two.
  • 27 new over-water villas can be accessed via a winding jetty of the southern tip of the resort’s main island.
  • Ranging from one- to four-bedroom retreats, the accommodation quarters are among the largest and most luxurious over-water villas in the world.
  • The new development promises to follow the highest environmental standards and employ sustainable materials and practices.

Ranging from one- to four-bedroom retreats, the accommodation quarters are among the largest and most luxurious over-water villas in the world. Each features vast indoor and outdoor living spaces and sweeping terraces, plus a private pool. Selected villas turn up the fun factor with waterslides that deliver guests straight into the private lagoon, and outdoor bathrooms for private bathing under the sun and stars. Then there’s the retractable roof systems over master bedrooms in the one- and two-bedroom villas – an ideal novelty for keen stargazers.  

As is the case with all of Soneva’s villas, the new development promises to follow the highest environmental standards and employ sustainable materials and practices, such as Forest Stewardship Council-certified woods and state-of-the-art technology designed to reduce the resort’s toll on the planet.

The innovative venture, conceived in 1990, was sparked by the desire of local residents to converge in the same arena where social, cultural and commercial activities take place.

Dine within a 'mega art installation' reminiscent of towering termite mounds
Set against the Mile City skyline in China’s Yunnan Province, the silhouettes cast by a grouping of red brick towers are equal parts distinctive, otherworldly and alluring. Created by artist Luo Xu, the cluster-like buildings are collectively named 50% Cloud for their resemblance to a half cloud floating in the sky. Bystanders also comment that their whimsical spires are reminiscent of colossal termite mounds, bursting from the red earth below. Hidden behind a section of the building’s brick armour, the 50% Cloud Artists Lounge was created by Hong Kong-based architecture studio Cheng Chung Design (CCD).
