Join us as we script an extraordinary tale together, one where integrity and passion illuminate each word, chapter and verse. Here, wellbeing is so much more than just an expression – it is a way of life, of being. We believe in savouring the joy of here and now. In setting our intention and nurturing with empathy. In co-creating moments of wonder and transcendence.
JOALI BEING is the beginning of a transformative journey. We meet guests where they are, and guide them on the path to self-discovery and renewal. From exhilarating adventure and soulful relaxation to customised nutrition and interactive learning, we create wellbeing experiences tailored to individual lifestyles and goals.
Nestled on the secluded island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, amid crystalline lagoons, pristine beaches and lush coconut palms, JOALI BEING is a 40-minute seaplane journey from Malé International Airport. With 68 villas, each with its own butler or “Jadugar”, we are the region’s first nature-immersive wellbeing island retreat.
Immerse in the vibrancy of FLOW, our open-plan interactive dining space featuring three signature kitchens. Plantae offers vegetarian and vegan cuisine, Su serves ocean-to-table pescatarian fare, and B’Well features a signature JOALI BEING menu, including a selection of Earth-to-Table meals. For sunset seekers, there is Mojo – our tropical beach sanctuary located on a three-layered sundeck and is an ideal lunch and sundowner spot by the pool. Culinary arts at JOALI BEING focus on an Earth-toTable initiative, promising ingredient traceability and offering fresh, locally harvested foods that support small farms and are sustainably sourced.
All food and drink options at JOALI BEING have been expertly curated with the help of the retreat’s nutritionists, offering a selection of flavours and cuisines with healthy and indulging dining options. Personalised nutrition sessions and co-created menu recommendations are available.
