Artisan luxury in the Maldives
Joali brings a refreshing concept to the Maldives by offering an immersive and artisan experience to those who choose to make this beautiful resort their temporary home.
Focussing on the nature and surrounding culture of the island, guests will delight in the details that make this resort unique; from bespoke art installations around the island to native storytelling by local residents.
The overriding feeling at Joali is one of unconventional luxury, with exceptional villas individually designed to ensure a sense of home and offering the very best in comfort, amenities and all with large private pools and personal butler.
If you can drag yourself away from your villa, you’ll find a delicious range of dining venues to choose from including Saoke, a distinctly Japanese restaurant from world-renowned restaurant architect Noriyoshi Muramatsu and Bellinis, offering Italian fine dining.
Beyond the stunning accommodation, it is the immersive experiences that set this resort apart. The island is packed with interactive art pieces, whilst the Art Studio & Gallery nurtures local artists as well as art-loving guests through workshops with renowned artists.
Visit the flower garden for workshops to further your botanical skills or the library for quiet contemplation. Families are welcome here and children will delight in treasure hunts, the Kids Spa, the kid-friendly kitchen and even the Manta Ray Tree House with never-ending views of the ocean.
Located a 45-minute seaplane ride from Male, or a 35-minute domestic flight with 15-minute speedboat transfer, Joali is located in the Raa Atoll, one of the deepest and largest of the Atolls in the northern area of the Maldives.
Divers, snorkellers and lovers of water sports will not be disappointed and well-lit tennis courts and a host of other sports are available back on land. Those looking for something a little more relaxing should visit Joali Spa by ESPA where tailor-made treatments will restore your vitality.
