Cover Soneva Jani in The Maldives

Movie night, but make it moonlit. These hotels around the world are elevating the outdoor cinema experience with five-star snacks and incredible settings

SONEVA JANI, THE MALDIVES 

It's hard to beat movie night on a private island, under the ethereal Maldivian sky. At Soneva Jani, guests can watch classic and contemporary films from a cosy hammock, or from a restaurant setting on a sustainably built overwater platform. 

The hotel's chefs have created a menu of comfort food and nibbles to enjoy throughout the movie, along with refreshing cocktails, complimentary popcorn and ice creams.
