Things to do
The over and above standout of Joali BEING is its extremely high-quality spa and wellness output. It’s the reason spa devotees are attracted to this tropical island and its attention to detail and results-driven treatment programmes are the resort’s main focus.
Covering a raft of wellness-orientated goals, your time here will be completely tailored to you and your needs. Led by a range of therapists, gurus, naturalists and practitioners your experience will be transformative – a day might include breathwork, sacred dance sessions, Chi Gong, herbology workshops or nourishment classes. Its setting on a truly beautiful island is uplifting enough and experiences here tap into the surrounding natural beauty – enjoy communal sunset gatherings, sunrise yoga, marine biology talks, and the use of natural island ingredients to create bespoke perfumes or aromatherapy cosmetics. As you’d expect the facilities here are first rate including overwater meditation decks, Russian banyas, sensory deprivation rooms and herbology centres.
Split between overwater villas and beach villas, Joali BEING’S 68 guest rooms continue the theme of healing and immersive experience. Design has been thought through with great detail to create calming spaces that feel spacious yet comfortable and interact positively with nature around it. With use of blond wood, soaring ceilings, stone floors and a pared-back colour palette, the décor is composed, with splashes of colour coming from the encircling nature – bright blue sea, tropical flowers, lush green palm trees and white sand.
Villas come with one, two, three or four bedrooms and with wellness extras such as mediative musical instruments, wellbeing rooms, games and customised mini-bar set ups. With a butler, private pool and sea-view you’ll find it very easy to relax and take in your heart-stoppingly beautiful environment, whether your villa opens out on to baby soft sands or allows easy access to the iridescent blue Indian Ocean.
Food & Drink
Many come to Joali BEING to immerse themselves in a wellbeing plan; correspondingly there’s a deep focus on nutrition, healthy eating, ocean-to-table fare and vegan cuisine. Ultimately though, it’s up to you when, where and what you eat and the open-plan, interactive dining space has three signature kitchens designed to produce fresh, locally harvested food that are sustainably sourced.
Joali BEING also puts on a range of special culinary dining experiences, to assist with specific wellbeing journeys or simply introduce you to a new gastronomic concept. You might have a plant-based dinner curated by Joali’s expert nutritionist, a truffle menu complemented by artisan teas, chosen by the Tea Sommelier or an organic-wine tasting. We love the sound of the castaway plant-based picnic on a nearby deserted island.
What Stands Out
Joali BEING is a truly transformative experience, where all your needs are met with one aim – to rejuvenate body and mind. Whatever reason brings you to Joali, the likelihood is there will be an expert on-hand to uniquely treat you. Plus the raft of soul-reviving treatments and one-of-a-kind activities mean you can get so much out of your spa retreat on this beautiful Maldivian isle.
If you love the tropical serenity of the Maldives, plus you’re a true spa aficionado, then Joali BEING is for you. With a deep, professional focus on mental and physical enhancement, Joali BEING will change how you view life.
