If you thought the Maldives
were only for honeymooners, think again. Soneva Jani, which opened in October, offers 25 family-friendly villas, each with a private pool and a water slide that delivers you into the turquoise lagoon below. Summer camp–style programming, an ice cream shop, and an open-air movie theater aim to please younger guests. For the adults: retractable roofs in the master bedrooms for stargazing, and glamping stays on nearby deserted islands.
