The first wellbeing island retreat in the Maldives, JOALI BEING is an exclusive sanctuary for guests to experience “weightlessness”.
Nestled on the secluded island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, 68 eco villas lie amongst crystal waters, pristine beaches, and lush coconut palms. Built according to biophilic design principles, each villa includes private pools and unique designs. From customised Wellbeing Bars to meditative musical instruments and with its own butler or “Jadugar”.
A journey of transcendence awaits
Designed to restore natural balance and facilitate personal transformation, the wellbeing activities are woven around the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING: Mind, Skin, Microbiome, and Energy. The JOALI BEING signature Immersion Programmes are customised to each guest’s unique needs and goals. That range from five nights to three weeks.
Transformative spaces across the island
Areka features Quiet Zones with separate male and female hydrotherapy areas and facilities such as the ice grotto, sauna, steam, vitality pools, and an idyllic garden. Guests can explore movement and performance at CORE, an expansive zone fitted with Technogym and Nohrd equipment. Or experience a healing blend of acoustics and music therapy at SEDA, the sound therapy hall. KAASHI is the hydrotherapy hall with an array of water therapies in complete privacy. From the relaxation of Watsu to the exhilaration of the Aufguss Sauna.
The Turkish-style Hammam is ideal for rejuvenation while the Salt Inhalation Room offers halotherapy. Healing crystals and massages with signature essential oils help to bring each of the Four Pillars into harmony. Rebalancing and renewal also come in the form of refreshing teas, tonics, and balms crafted by the resident Herbologist.
Culinary arts at JOALI BEING
A focus on “earth-to-table” dishes promises ingredient traceability with fresh, locally harvested foods from small sustainable farms. Immerse in the vibrancy of FLOW, the open-plan dining space that features three kitchens. Plantae offers vegetarian and vegan cuisine, Su serves up ocean-to-table pescatarian fare, and B’Well offers a signature JOALI BEING menu with meat and poultry options. For sunset seekers, MOJO is a stunning tropical beach sanctuary located over a three-layered sundeck. It’s the optimum spot for lunch or a sundowner by the pool.
JOALI BEING is a bespoke luxury in a setting that promises mindfulness in the Maldives. An easy 40-minute seaplane journey from Malé International Airport will transport you to a pure paradise.
