Dr.Chet Collins

19 September, 2022

Indulge in transformative wellness experiences: Soneva Jani to host a wellness expert Dr.Chet Collins from October 1st to 31st.

Combining years of hands-on therapy and clinical chiropractic experience with an in-depth understanding of human movement, sport and exercise physiology, Dr Chet Collins provides his patients with immediate relief and long-term solutions for their physical needs. His passion for helping others discover the freedom of movement and his record for relieving and correcting persistent physical problems have resulted in an international reputation as “Dr Magic Hands”.

Dr.Chet Collins

Over the past 20 years, Dr Chet has also developed Motion Restoration Therapy, a unique combination of pain-free deep tissue manipulation, detailed finger pressure and gentle joint movement. In doing so, restoring normal motion to the body’s tissues and relieving abnormal stresses on the joints and musculoskeletal pain.

Through Motion Restoration Therapy, even painful conditions that have been resistant to previous forms of treatment can be improved in a short period of time. Corrective exercises and personalised training are then used to support soft tissue corrections and prevent recurrences.

This October, enjoy an unforgettable stay at Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani. Dine with award-winning visiting chefs and discover a feast of flavours at their dining destinations. Relax and indulge with Soneva Soul therapies and sessions with wellness specialists. Try one-of-a-kind experiences and activities, on and around Soneva Fushi or reconnect with your loved ones through family-focused activities at their new Den at Soneva Jani.

The Den welcomes its visitors

Soneva’s exceptional line-up of visiting chefs will also be going to Soneva Jani in the Maldives’ Noonu Atoll. Sascha Stemberg, Pepi Aneveski, Dipna Anand, Lisa GoodwinAllen, Chantelle Nicholson and Viktor Beley will all be hosting exclusive dinners at the 4 resort, including at So Engaging, the intimate chef’s table that seats just five guests.

Other unforgettable dining experiences during the October calendar include a Champagne sunrise breakfast on the sands of North Beach and a selection of succulent crabs and seafood at our award-winning, open-aired Crab Shack. A mouthwatering selection of themed dinners showcasing the continent’s eclectic cuisine can be found at Asian Kitchen, while diners can explore the heavens with astronomer Dr James O’Donoghue at So Starstruck, the Maldives’ only overwater telescope. A special Diwali celebration dinner with live entertainment will also be taking place on Soneva Jani’s South Beach during the festival of lights.

Helping guests stay active this October, fitness experts Joe Wicks, Ben Cohen and Kristina Rihanoff will be conducting their renowned workshops and training sessions. Former professional football player Ibrahim ‘Ibou’ Ba will be hosting a Young Sonevians’ Football Club, while former professional tennis player Agnieszka Radwańska, known for making intelligent use of the court, will be teaching a series of tennis camps. Younger guests can also make a splash with Olympic Swedish swimmer Therese Alshammar during a series of swimming sessions.

At Soneva Soul, visiting therapist and clinical chiro practitioner Dr Chet Collins, whose record for relieving and correcting persistent physical pain has resulted in an international reputation as ‘Dr Magic Hands’, will be helping guests find immediate relief and long-term solutions for their physical needs through a range of treatments. Guests can also join Soneva Jani’s own yoga and meditation masters, Justin and Kamal, for yoga and meditation sessions and learn how to enhance overall wellbeing, stretch and strengthen the body, focus the mind and balance emotions.

The playful escapism of Soneva Jani’s luxurious 5.6-kilometre lagoon makes the resort irresistible to experience seekers. A range of complimentary non-motorised water sports, including kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and snorkelling at the house reef are on offer. Or experience the ocean with complete freedom with some of the latest motorised tech, including eSurfboards and Flyboards, and learn to move through the water like a fish, on the surface and beneath the waves.

A haven for families, The Den at Soneva Jani features a daily roster of exciting, educational and engaging opportunities for both young children and teenagers to 5 create meaningful moments at the barefoot hideaway. Inspired by childhood wonder, The Den is a two-storey awe-inspiring playground for the imagination – and now one of the largest children’s clubs in Asia. Featuring a zipline through a cascading waterfall; areas for music, Lego, dressing up and creativity; a soothing sensory room for toddlers and a hidden hangout for teens where mocktails and music set the scene; plus so much more – there’s something for all Young Sonevians, both large and small. Older children and teens can also join the Soneva Academy, which takes learning outside of the classroom with a selection of fascinating immersive courses, including the Marine Life of the Maldives, Mosquitoes and the Adventure of the Corbin, which follows the voyage of an ancient treasure galleon.
