Hotel Amenities


At Soneva Gili & Spa we pride ourselves not just on the quality of our food and the excellence of our service, but also on the enjoyment of the dining experience itself. At Soneva Gili open air dining can be romantic, private and unique. A moonlit dinner on the sun deck of your villa or on the pontoon boat as it cruises in the lagoon under the stars, breakfast in the living room of your residence, or lunch over the water in the al fresco restaurant – the settings are as memorable
as the cuisine.
