Perched within the magnificent, blistered-blue Indian Ocean, sits Joali Maldives on its own 24-acre private island of Muravandhoo, scattered with stunning villas and surrounded by pristine marine life. The resort's core focus on wellness, combined with exquisite service and cuisine, redefines relaxation at the Joali Spa. Escape and unwind in this paradise, which features eight treatment rooms, with therapies ranging from Balinese massages to a hammam. The luxury hotel also emphasises its sustainability, thus no trees were harmed during the making of Joali, and instead, the villas are constructed from eco-friendly timber and bamboo. All the art pieces at the resort address environmental concerns of today and are to evoke a better understanding of marine conservation.
