What we say

Joali Maldives

One of the most quality times that I have spent in an island as I recall in the recent past has been at the Joali Maldives, tucked away in the uninhabited Raa atoll. In a matter of 45 minute scenic seaplane ride, I arrive at this tranquil island that just brought me to a sense of calmness the minute I arrived which stayed with me even after I left. The resort is settled away from the hustle and bustle with complete privacy and most importantly not overlooking any other island resort. From the interior to the ambiance, Joali had promised a beautiful stay and one that I would boast and highly recommend to all my friends.

Apart from the surrounding palm trees leading to the various accommodation options, the resort boasts of wellness and recreational activities and a plethora of dining options. The resort also showcases art and designs done by some of the most celebrated designers including London-based Glithero and New York-based Misha Kahn, as well as South African architect Porky Hefer handpicked by Istanbul-based No LaB; Ala Onur and Zeynep Ercan in order to blend the property with the natural surroundings.

My stay at Joali began at the Luxury Beach villa where the entire villa was given carefully detailed designing and quite close to nature in terms of ambiance. The best part about the villa was that they offer spa treatments inside your villa and the infinity pool overlooking lush green vegetation. I was able to enjoy a book as well during my stay as they offered a little library inside the villa. Joali also offers Two Pool Luxury Beach Villa and Private Double Beach Residence offering a backyard pool, private beach garden and multiple rooms with around-the-clock butler service.

If you’re a fan of the water villas you’ll be spoilt for choice as Joali offers Water Villas with an infinity pool and spacious sundecks to watch over the clear blue lagoon and the Luxury Water Villa with lavish rooms, mini library and a spacious living rooms. The Ultimate accommodation option would be the Private Ocean Residence with three bedrooms, two living rooms and two infinity pools and a private Dhoni available at all times to visit the spa or the restaurant whenever you feel like.

The culinary offering at Joali is as good as everything else with four different restaurants and a range of private dining options. I enjoyed my first meal at Vandhoo where I got to pair my food with some fine wine and I was able to enjoy both Mediterranean and South East Asian cuisine. Her Kitchen was quite a unique one as I got to cook up a dish with the in-house chef who helped me learn some tips and tricks to whip up a local dish.

You ought to try their Teppanyaki and Sushi if you’re a fan of Japanese food at the Japanese/ Peruvian restaurant and of course I was able to indulge in some refreshing limoncellos to beat the tropical weather at the Italian Restaurant paired with some authentic Italian dishes. Apart from these many dining options you also get Mura to enjoy a drink either in a cabana or on the open with live performances on special nights.

Joali isn’t just about luxury. There were plenty of experiences and adventure to engage in and I must say, it was an extraordinary one. A flower garden was one such unique adventure where we got to explore local plants and flowers with workshops and events to develop guests’ own botanical know-how and the Manta Ray Tree house offering a unique dining experience with tailor-made music and food. We also took a little trip to the resort’s private sandbar for a late afternoon snorkeling and parasailing the following day but you can also try out the diving if you feel like dwelling deep in the abundant marine life.

One thing I was so looking forward to in the island was a spa treatment as Espa by Joali had some interesting spa packages overlooking the beautiful island surroundings. I also got myself a facemask and a foot massage which really helped me after all the adventure in the sun. They have spa treatments for kids as well and a Kids Club offering fun activities and a kid-friendly kitchen to create their very own dishes.

In short, Joali Maldives is pretty much a dreamy holiday destination with luxury and homely comforts under one roof and if you’re ever considering an all-inclusive lavish stay in the beautiful Maldives, I highly recommend Joali Maldives as my stay was one of a kind.

We will leave no leaf unturned
