JOALI Maldives

JOALI Maldives encapsulates its brand’s ’joy-of-life’ philosophy within this art-immersive resort, from its vibrant interior colors and decorative details to the interactive and experiential artistic pieces that accentuate the island’s natural beauty. The resort features 73 villas, each with one to four bedrooms, spread throughout the island and over its lagoon. Each villa has its own private infinity pool and dedicated butler service. Several villas offer stunning sunrise views, while even-numbered villas feature sunset views. Interiors are modern and tropical chic, with marble, bamboo, and natural materials. The resort features six restaurants with an interactive kitchen and encompasses a multitude of cuisines including southeast Asian, Chinese, Mediterranean, Japanese, Italian, and more, from snacks and street food to fine dining and teppanyaki. Specialty offerings include a wine cellar, an artisanal chocolate and ice cream shop, and a whiskey and cigar lounge. JOALI offers a range of activities such as snorkeling with manta rays, learning about coral degradation in the underwater museum, wakeboarding, chartered yacht and dhoni excursions, as well as meeting with local communities. Its signature experience leads guests on an art and sculpture tour of the island in a scavenger hunt of unique works designed specifically for Joali. Facilities include studios for yoga and Pilates, tennis court, soccer pitch, movement center, Technogym-outfitted fitness center, overwater meditation deck and consultation rooms with a Fit3D body scanner and QEST bioenergetic testing system. For relaxation, the JOALI spa specializes in exclusive therapies by Espa, wellness therapies such as sound healing and chakra work. JOALI is located on Muravandhoo island in Raa Atoll, a 45-minute seaplane flight from Malé airport.
