Joali Brand announces the opening of JOALI Being, the first dedicated wellbeing-immersive retreat in the Maldives at the end of 2021. Details and first images of the resort.
Set to open in late 2021, JOALI Being will be the second resort of Joali Brand in Maldives. The new resort is located on Bodufushi island in Raa Atoll and will be the first dedicated wellbeing-immersive retreat in the Maldives.
Born from the eco-friendly hospitality brand JOALI and its core philosophy of the ‘joy of living’, JOALI BEING is a sustainable wellbeing island retreat residing on the secluded natural island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, a short seaplane flight away from Male International Airport, with the option of a private transfer.
JOALI Being is an eco-friendly island that will feature water and beach villas, highly personalised treatments and experiences, and diverse tailored cuisine.
The Wellness Experience
The resort aims to provide guests with transformational wellbeing experience centred around four pillars of wellbeing: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy.
Following an in depth consultation with a personal wellbeing consultant upon arrival, JOALI BEING offers each guest a completely personalised programme, fusing both traditional and modern methods to illuminate a path to transcendence, self-discovery and renewal. High-level specialists, such as naturopaths, ayurvedic doctors and nutritionists will be assigned and responsible for a roster of guests throughout the duration of their stay.
Areka, JOALI Being Wellbeing Center
AREKA wellbeing centre comprises 39 thoughtfully designed treatment rooms and transformational spaces including a Hydrotherapy Hall, which has a Sensory Deprivation Room, a Russian Banya, water therapies, a salt inhalation room and a hammam. The beautiful spa also offers a separate Pilates studio, an overwater meditation deck called Ocean Sala and an intelligent ‘Movement Analysis’ tool.
Guests can also experience the unique benefits of the Sound Therapy Hall and the Discovery Sound Path, created in collaboration with the retreat’s sound healing visionary and consultant Aurelio C. Hammer (also known as Svaram).
Aktar, The resort Herbology Centre
AKTAR is JOALI BEING’s Herbology Centre, inspired by the rich heritage and history of the healing powers of herbs. Guests can address concerns around Mind, Skin, Micro biome and Energy with the resident herbalist, who specialises in preparing natural remedies using herbs, spices and essential oils.
JOALI Being Gastronomy & Bars
Culinary arts at JOALI BEING focus on an Earth-to-Table initiative, promising ingredient traceability and offering fresh, locally harvested foods that support small farmers and are sustainably sourced. All food and drink options have been expertly curated with the help of the retreat’s nutritionists, offering a selection of flavours and cuisines, with healthy yet indulgent dining options.
If desired by guests, personalised nutrition sessions and co-created menu recommendations are available. Guests can also enjoy interactive nutritional cooking classes at the retreat’s Culinary Learning Centre, which will offer fully equipped kitchen spaces for each participant.
