Soneva, the pioneering luxury resorts operator, has announced the launch of Soneva Soul. This new wellness brand combines thousands of years of ancient healing with modern science and medicine to reconnect mind, body and soul.
“Wellness permeates all that we do at Soneva: our sustainable, barefoot philosophy that reconnects our guests to the earth; our life-affirming natural locations; our delicious yet health-focused cuisine; and our life-changing guest experiences,” says Sonu Shivdasani, CEO and Co-Founder of Soneva. “Soneva Soul is the culmination of everything we have learned since we launched our spa at Soneva Fushi in 1995, the very first resort spa in the Maldives. Much like Soneva, at Soneva Soul we are pioneering an approach that combines apparent opposites to offer our guests a transformative and personalised wellbeing experience.”
Soneva Soul will encompass resort spas, movement, sleep, yoga and meditation programmes; wellness and lifestyle products; a global network of acclaimed wellness specialists; and innovative, regenerative modalities and medical services. As the brand grows, it will tailor integrated care plans guided by the ‘lifestyle evolution’ principle, helping guests realise their utmost potential and achieve their long-term wellness goals.
Soneva Soul is now operational across all of Soneva’s award-winning resorts, including Soneva Kiri in Thailand.
In the longer term, Soneva will also work with like-minded partners to launch one-of-a-kind wellness destinations across the world. Between now and early 2022, each Soneva Soul will establish a permanent team that includes an Ayurvedic doctor, Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner, integrative medicine doctor and highly trained therapists. The resident team will be complemented by a network of international visiting wellness specialists, selected for their expertise across a full spectrum of wellness practices, healing, fitness and spirituality.
Working in partnership with each guest, Soneva Soul’s wellness experts will curate a wellness journey that supports every aspect of their life. This includes rest, recovery, regeneration, detoxification, movement, and optimisation, following balance, mindful living, and self-care principles.
Based upon outcomes that target guests’ specific needs, the treatment menu at each Soneva Soul will unite traditional wellness philosophies with cutting-edge treatment methodologies and therapeutic biomodulation. These include heart rate variability testing, platelet-rich plasma (PRP therapy), nutrient IV therapy, cryotherapy, ozone therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Led by master fitness trainers and bodywork experts, the Soneva Soul Movement Programme balances functional gym-based fitness, with natural free movement techniques and experiential fitness, surrounded by nature – such as jungle gyms and deep-water aquatic fitness sessions. Yoga, Pranayama Breathing, and Meditation Programmes reinforce the link between mind, body and soul, with one-on-one and group sessions with resident yoga masters and renowned visiting experts. And an expert-led Sleep Programme creates a personalised programme for healthier long-term sleeping habits.
Your wellness journey can start at any point. Whether you want to kick-start a healthier lifestyle, heal following an illness or injury, improve your physical and mental performance, or simply relax and indulge.
