Designed as a luxurious art-immersive island retreat, JOALI Maldives focuses on sustainable glamour. This experiential destination has been created in collaboration with world-renowned artists and local artisans. The revival of Maldivian craftsmanship also supports the local community.
Hidden away in the northern reaches of the Maldives, JOALI is situated on Muravandhoo Island in the Raa Atoll, one of the largest and deepest in the world. “Atoll” comes from atholhu – a Dhivehi term used by early geographers to describe the region’s distinctive ring-shaped coral reefs, embedded in tranquil lagoons.
Spread all across the verdant island, 73 spacious accommodations (24 beach villas and 49 over-water villas) redefine sustainable glamour. Choose from a selection of beach villas, over-water villas and expansive residences ranging from one to four bedrooms. With inspiring artworks and indulgent amenities, each accommodation offers a haven of blissful luxury. Stunning ocean views offer a backdrop of turquoise and azure, with a private infinity pool for sun-splashed swims and midnight dips.
Each villa has a private infinity pool, butler service, curated in-villa libraries and handpicked art. Standout accommodations include the Three Bedroom Ocean Residence and Four Bedroom Beach Residence; the former has two infinity pools, a spa room and sauna and an on-call Dhoni (a Maldivian sailboat), while the latter is set in a private beach enclave and has indoor and outdoor living space, a private infinity pool, spa cabana and sauna.
At JOALI Spa by ESPA, powerful signature treatments will restore your body’s vitality and vibrancy, unlocking inner joy. Set amid breath-taking gardens and seaside vistas, the eight treatment rooms reflect a luxurious design concept. Based on the principles of holistic wellness, each therapy begins with a refreshing coconut water infusion and culminates with a unique culinary delight to complement and enhance your JOALI experience.
JOALI Maldives offers four dining outlets, including Saoke – a Japanese restaurant designed by Zuma interior designer, Noriyoshi Muramatsu; Vandhoo – serving Asian- and Levant-inspired dishes, Bellinis – a “slow food” Tuscan eatery with handmade pastas and Her Kitchen – which hosts a selection of cooking classes (book at least 24 hours in advance).
Even better: Guests can also enjoy 60-plus flavors of ice cream, handmade cupcakes and macaroons from the chocolate and ice cream store on property. The older crowd can enjoy the Whisky Lounge and Wine Cellar, which has over 150 labels.
