Soneva Gili awarded the Indian Ocean’s Leading Luxury Resort and the Maldives’ Leading Luxury Resort

Six Senses is delighted to announce that Soneva Gili by Six Senses has been honoured with two awards at the World Travel Awards 2011 – hailed by Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of travel and tourism.

Soneva Gili by Six Senses received the awards at the official gala ceremony in the Egypt Hall, Soho Square, Sharm el Sheikh last night, 16th September. This year, a phenomenal 213,000 industry professionals participated in the voting process for the prestigious awards.

Soneva Gili, a short boat ride from the capital Malé, is set in a sparkling lagoon, with jetties threading across the shallow waters to over-sized, luxury villas. The 44 stilted accommodations – plus the vast Private Reserve - continue the Soneva philosophy of Intelligent Luxury. They offer private rooftop and overwater sundecks, with every room delivering spectacular water views. Sumptuous daybeds complement the rustic chic interiors and all villas feature a host of creature comforts. The spa at Soneva Gili features glass paneled floors beneath the massage beds, heightening the sensual experience for guests, with a view to the spectacular Indian Ocean.
