JOALI BEING offers a comprehensive approach to self-care and is the first island of its kind in the Maldives fully focused on wellbeing. Unlike a spa resort, where guests can book individual treatments, JOALI BEING creates personalised Wellbeing Programmes based on the unique goals and concerns of each guest.
Crafted by over 60 dedicated wellbeing experts and specialists, our Wellbeing Programmes include sessions that complement each other and have been curated to achieve specific goals, while simultaneously improving overall wellbeing. Along with 39 treatment rooms, we offer a collection of unique Transformational Spaces such as KAASHI (the Hydrotherapy Hall), SEDA (the Sound Therapy Hall), The Discovery Sound Path, CORE (the Movement & Fitness Zone) and Ocean Sala (the Overwater Deck for anti-gravity yoga and meditation).
Our goal is to create the ultimate wellbeing and wellness experiences in the Maldives for every guest, supporting every step of their transformative journey.
Medical spas aim to treat targeted health issues and focus on specific results under the guidance of medical staff. Our wellbeing island, meanwhile, offers a comprehensive approach based on The Four Pillars of JOALI BEING.
We focus on lifestyle and preventative tools for longevity and better living. Invasive treatments are not performed at JOALI BEING in the Maldives.
The Transformational Spaces at JOALI BEING are open during these hours for wellbeing activities:
Areka: 9:00 am to 8:00 pm
KAASHI: 9:00 am to 7:00 pm
CORE: open 24 hours; however, our fitness specialists are available between 7:00 am to 8:00 pm, with additional flexibility upon request.
JOALI BEING offers a selection of complimentary wellbeing experiences in the Maldives for all guests.
These include a one-on-one session with a Wellbeing Consultant; complimentary Mind & Body, Movement and Meditation Classes; and learning activities according to the resort activity calendar.
To avoid any disappointment in obtaining the preferred date and time for wellbeing treatments at JOALI BEING, it is recommended for guests to provide their preferences as part of the pre-arrival wellbeing questionnaire.
Appointments can also be booked at JOALI BEING during your stay in the Maldives.
Wellbeing Programmes at JOALI BEING are designed to achieve specific goals. Because of this, we are not able to replace treatments and sessions with a different option. However, additional sessions may be booked on top of your pre-planned Wellbeing Programme.
The Integrative Lifestyle Assessment at JOALI BEING is a consultation to identify each guest's individual areas of concern, needs and goals. This allows us to tailor a more suitable and beneficial programme for you.

JOALI BEING offers Ayurvedic treatments using traditional medicated blended oils to address a variety of ailments and concerns.
