Located on Muravandhoo, a tiny dot in the Indian Ocean’s remote Raa Atoll, Joali is a paradise surrounded by uninhabited islands that can be reached in just 45 minutes by private seaplane from Male. The resort includes 73 elegant beach and over-water villas and residences, all designed in a spacious and elegant way with high ceilings, private swimming pools, indoor and outdoor showers, an indoor and outdoor living area, a dressing room, sun loungers and access to the ocean for snorkeling. Joali truly embodies the joys of life that intertwine through his attention to art – including an underwater coral reef sculpture – and sustainable luxury, gastronomy, family and well-being.
Villas and private experiences
The safety, health and well-being of its guests have always been the top priorities of the Joali team, which has also implemented the recommendations and regulations on health and safety approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) to ensure safe travel in the resort. Guests who seek maximum privacy and wish to spend most of their time in their villa can count on a “Jadugar” – in the native language means “magician” – staff 24 hours a day to assist them and provide a service that

leaves truly magical memories. In-villa dining is available from any of Joali’s four outstanding restaurants: Saoke, Bellini’s, Mura Bar and Vandhoo. Intimate private destination dining is also on offer in locations including a neighbouring desert island, a secluded sunset beach spot or inside Joali’s Manta Ray Treehouse. Private spa treatments, yoga sessions and personal fitness training from Joali’s incredible ESPA spa are also available to enjoy in the privacy of your villa. For guests looking to explore further afield, spend time on a private boat trip including a sunset yacht cruise, turtle snorkeling trips, scuba-diving, dolphin spotting and romantic private dining. Families can enjoy tailor-made treasure hunt and picnic adventures on a nearby uninhabited island.
Sustainable glamor
Joali compensates for all carbon emissions by working with local communities to replant trees and the construction has been designed around the island’s trees to preserve the natural flora. This conscious decision has saved over 1,000 original palm trees that remain today throughout the resort. The owners have also purchased nearby islands to preserve their natural environment as well as stop any further hotel development, thus keeping the resort’s exclusivity and privacy intact. Joali is devoted to taking necessary steps to ban single-use plastic, offering suitable alternatives to all guests and staff. All bathroom products are vegan and chemical-free to protect corals and sea life. Helping to benefit local communities, the team has a

policy to source local goods, especially goods from neighbouring islands, where possible, and many vegetables and herbs are grown on-site. Joali’s focus on eco-luxury means that all plastic used on-site is both recyclable and recycled, food waste is recycledusing an innovative rocket composter and the resort is investing in rainwater-powered energy supply. Joali supports local CSR projects including educating local schools on the importance of sustainability and helping empower women in the Maldives.
Marine conservation
In 2016, as a result of an extreme El Niño event, the reefs in the Maldives, and worldwide, experienced extended elevated ocean temperatures. In response, up to 95% of the corals in the Maldives were bleached and unable to recover leading to mass coral mortalities. In response to this ecological crisis, Joali has created its own pioneering Reef Restoration Project whereby Samantha Reynolds, an international Marine Biologist, is heading up their on-site coral nursery. The team are dedicated to nurturing what Samantha calls her ‘fragments of hope’ – tiny corals that she hopes will eventually transplant onto the existing house reef to help it regenerate. The luxury resort also encourages guests to go out line-fishing with the local Raa Atoll fishermen to learn local fishing techniques and learn about the importance of sustainable fishing practices.
