JOALI is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious resorts in the Maldives and is definitely worth seeing for yourself.
At JOALI, life is about the individual moments that you experience and share, about the paradisaical nature that surrounds you and the intimate seclusion that is felt when cast adrift in the middle of the Indian Ocean. A holiday to JOALI is more than just a holiday: it's about reconnecting with yourself and transforming your mind, feeling encouraged to embrace every moment that presents itself to you. JOALI celebrates life, and during your stay here you'll truly feel what it means to be alive.
JOALI is beautifully situated on Muravandhoo Island in the Raa Atoll, one of the largest and deepest coral atolls in the world, characterised by a dazzling turquoise lagoon, white-sand beaches and extraordinary marine life. Getting to this island paradise is simple: you can board a 40-minute shared seaplane flight from Male Airport, benefitting from JOALI's private seaplane lounge, take a 35-minute domestic flight from Male to Ilfuru Airport, followed by a 15-minute speedboat ride to the resort, or charter your own private seaplane from Male Airport to the resort.
At JOALI, life above the water is exquisitely divine, its luxury Water Villas and Residences offering above and beyond what's expected of this coveted Maldivian accommodation experience. Whether it be space, luxury, or comfort, nothing is compromised; all of JOALI's Water Villas feature expansive, ocean-facing private infinity pools, steps leading into the lagoon, spacious furnished decks and pavilions, and elegantly furnished interiors including a king-sized bed and freestanding bathtub.
For families and larger groups, the Three Bedroom Ocean Residence is perfect, its two infinity pools and two living rooms offering all the space needed to properly unwind in paradise.
There's nothing more romantic than being mere steps away from the beach; and at JOALI, each of the Beach Villas and Residences are akin to private tropical oases, embodying feelings of tranquility and luxury. Surrounded by nature, you'll really feel like you're experiencing your own Robinson Crusoe adventure. What really sets these villas apart are their private beach gardens, expansive private infinity pools and spacious living interiors, a world away from anywhere you've ever been before.
For an unforgettable family getaway, the Four Bedroom Beach Residences are ideal, offering the whole family the space to unwind and relax together, playing in the private pool and taking evening strolls along the beach.
Dining at JOALI is a feast for the senses, the whole eating experience fittingly defined as the 'culinary arts'. Indeed, its four restaurants are all about being immersed in new flavours and surroundings, broadening your mind and expanding your palate to reflect dishes from across the world. From personalised culinary experiences to Japanese teppanyaki displays, you will be delighted at the sheer variety of cuisines you can try.
To end the evening the right way, we highly recommend you visit the ambient Mura Bar, overlooking the beach and pool. Offering refreshing cocktails and surprise event nights, this is the perfect place to sit back and watch as the sun dips beneath the horizon.
Wellness is an integral part of JOALI's ethos, its Espa Spa offering a bespoke holistic and unique wellness experience focusing on serenity and revitalisation. With 8 treatment rooms, you'll be spoilt for choice as you choose from the delightful spa menu, offering personalised massages to mindful rituals. If you're looking for a Maldives holiday that fully incorporates wellness into your stay, then you can embark on a Spa Ultimate Wellbeing Journey at JOALI, a specialised program personalised to you combining spa and fitness regimens.
There is so much to be discovered in the Maldives, and JOALI allows you to connect with nature in a way that's deeply intimate and personal. The adventure really does begin here, whether you want to explore a local island, go on a luxurious yachting trip, snorkel with manta rays and whale sharks or glide across the lagoon on a glass-bottomed kayak. The possibilities are endless, and all the resort staff will be eager to make your Maldives holiday the most memorable it can be.
For children, the Maldives is one of the most exciting places they can ever visit; it's filled with joy, adventure and inspiration. Bursting with energy, there will be no boundaries to your children's imaginations at Muramas Kids Club, a fun and safe tropical haven cocooned by beautiful palm trees, perfect for when you want to unwind for that much-needed relaxation time. With beautiful beaches and warm, clear water, you are guaranteed to make some unforgettable family memories during your stay at JOALI.
JOALI is committed to protecting the precious natural environment of the Maldives that it inhabits. After the devastating 2016 coral bleaching event that destroyed up to 80% of the corals in the Maldives, JOALI has since established a Reef Restoration Programme to help encourage rehabilitation and recovery. This involves growing corals inside a nursery for 9-12 months before planting them back on the reef, all to help preserve these unique and vital habitats.
