Envisioned as a wellbeing island retreat, JOALI BEING is centred around “weightlessness” – a feeling of freedom, lightness and joy. This experiential destination is based on biophilic principles, facilitating the natural flow of energy from coast to coast. Discover a collection of inspiring spaces designed for reflection, exploration and growth, created in collaboration with knowledgeable wellbeing experts.
Surrounded by ethereal lagoons and brimming with lush coconut palms, our secluded island is tucked away in the far northern reaches of the Maldives. Situated on Bodufushi Island in Raa Atoll, JOALI BEING reflects the wondrous spirit of its natural surroundings. Explore sound therapy in the indigenous forest, meditate above the tranquil waves, and join the daily sunset ritual on ivory sands.
The Maldives is a unique destination with a fragile ecosystem. From the tiniest marine creature to the tallest palm tree, each living thing plays a vital role in the replenishing experience created by these islands. At JOALI BEING, the conservation of the natural environment is a priority and a privilege. Based on biophilic design principles, the retreat’s innovative landscaping and architecture embrace its incredible surroundings.
