Joy leads the way at JOALI. The luxury hospitality brand offers two spectacular islands in the Maldives, nestled in a dreamscape of shimmering lagoons, ivory sands and lush palms. Situated in the secluded Raa Atoll, each property offers a unique vacation experience. As the region’s first art-immersive luxury resort, JOALI Maldives is a wonderland of creativity and indulgence.
Travellers can experience the brand’s ‘Joy of Living’ through an incredible collection of artworks that unfold across the island. These one-of-a-kind installations reflect an intriguing dialogue between global aesthetics and indigenous craftsmanship. The exclusive Art Studio and Gallery showcases Maldivian artists and hosts interactive projects. With a focus on privacy and sustainable glamour, the resort offers 73 spacious accommodations, a mix of villas and residences. Guests can experience island living at its finest, with sweeping ocean views, private infinity pools and dedicated butlers.
This magical island realm is a constant expression of joie de vivre. The culinary arts, too, reflect JOALI’s joyful spirit. Guests can explore an inspiring collection of drinking-and-dining spaces, including six restaurants and an interactive kitchen. Elevated by authentic flavours and locally harvested ingredients, the curated menus at the variety of dining options promise mesmerising gastronomic adventures from all over the globe, served in unique and atmospheric spaces.
At JOALI BEING, the first well-being island retreat in the Maldives, a journey of transcendence awaits. This exclusive sanctuary invites guests to experience “weightlessness” – a sense of freedom, joy and lightness.
Centred around the unique Four Pillars of JOALI BEING, the retreat leads the way in well-being education to build a community of sojourners, culinarians and thinkers that then continue their daily lives, bringing with them the knowledge and experiences from the retreat.
JOALI BEING’s offerings draw on both modern science and long-honoured traditions that enable guests to be met where they are and further guided on a journey of self-discovery and renewal, all while savouring the joy of the here and now. A dedicated expert team of naturopaths, therapists and movement experts will work with guests every step of one’s stay to help set intentions, nurture with empathy and co-create moments of wonder and transcendence.
Built according to biophilic design principles, the retreat offers 68 well-living spaces with private pools and special inclusions, such as customised Wellbeing Bar setups and meditative musical instruments. Designed to restore natural balance and facilitate personal transformation, the well-being offerings are woven around the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy. Ranging from five nights to three weeks, the signature Wellbeing Programmes are customised to the unique needs and goals of each guest. Transformative spaces unfold across the island, offering endless inspiration. KAASHI, the hydrotherapy hall, offers an array of water therapies in complete privacy – from the relaxation of Watsu to the exhilaration of the Aufguss Sauna. The Turkish-style Hammam hosts calming sojourns while the Salt Inhalation Room offers halotherapy.
JOALI BEING’s culinary arts prioritise ingredient traceability and sustainable sourcing, with a focus on locally harvested foods that support small farms. FLOW is an interactive dining space with three signature kitchens: Su for ocean-to-table pescatarian cuisine, Plantae for vegetarian and vegan fare, and B’Well for meat and poultry options. MOJO is a tropical beach sanctuary with a three-layered sundeck, featuring SAI tea lounge for tea ceremonies and learning sessions with a resident tea sommelier. Ocean Sala Dining offers grilled premium cuts of meat and seafood, including specialities like Wagyu beef, Japanese scallops, and Maldivian lobster and tuna. Private dining experiences like Teppanyaki and bespoke arrangements can be enjoyed anywhere on the island, from a private bank to an inviting Turtle Treehouse.
The possibilities are endless when you choose to escape with JOALI.
