Play Tennis With US Open Champion Daniil Medvedev in the Maldives

As part of Soneva's upcoming Winter Collection in the Maldives, tennis icon Daniil Medvedev will be visiting Soneva Fushi, the award-winning barefoot luxury resort in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, to host a series of exclusive guest experiences.

From November 22 to December 1, 2023, Sonevians of all ages can take part in one-on-one coaching sessions and friendly matches with Daniil at the resort’s open-air or covered Olympic-sized tennis courts. Currently ranked the #3 tennis player in the world, the 27-year-old star is a US Open champion (2021) and former world #1, who made history in 2022 by becoming the first player outside of the ‘Big Four’ to claim the top spot in over 18 years. This year alone, Daniil has already won the Rotterdam Open, Qatar Open, Dubai Tennis Championships, Miami Open and the Italian Open, which is regarded as one of the world’s most prestigious clay tennis tournaments, and reached the semifinals of both Wimbledon and the US Open.

Additional upcoming visiting experts at Soneva Fushi include celebrated British sailor Sir Robin Knox-Johnston, who will be leading one-of-a-kind sailing lessons aboard Soneva in Aqua from November 23 to December 1, 2023. Two-Michelin-Starred Chef Tim Raue, the only German chef to be featured in Netflix’s Chef’s Table, will be the resident chef at the fine-dining zipline restaurant, Flying Sauces, from October 12, 2023 through January 24, 2024.

These are just a few of the many rare experiences on offer as part of the ever-evolving Soneva Stars calendar, which features culinary pop-ups by Michelin-starred chefs, coaching with sporting legends, wellness journeys by acclaimed therapists, and much more.
