Joy of Conserving

Nurturing Ethical Consumption

Here at JOALI, everyday practices align with our overall vision of sustainability. We have implemented an eco-conscious approach across both islands with the goal of minimising consumption of key resources and reducing our carbon footprint.


Responsible Sourcing

Our culinary team loves to craft specialties with locally caught fish and seafood, along with organic produce from our Herb Garden. Our commitment to fair trade principles is reflected through ethically sourced tea, coffee and wood products. As much as possible, we use local produce and buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste. We also use eco-friendly stewarding and laundry chemicals.


Water Management

Both islands house their own glass water bottling plant and wastewater treatment system. JOALI Maldives also practices rainwater harvesting, using collected and recycled rainwater for gardening. Plus, our thoughtful laundry policy minimises the use of water and laundry chemicals.


Energy Conservation

We are further shrinking our carbon footprint by conserving energy usage at the resort. Along with using efficient LED lights and smart controls in the villas, we have launched a pilot project to increase the use of solar energy. Guests booking directly with us will have the option to off-set their carbon emissions during the reservation process.



Culinary arts at JOALI focus on an Earth-to-Table initiative, promising ingredient traceability and offering fresh, locally harvested and sustainably sourced foods that support small farms.


Our slow food mantra promotes local foods, traditional cooking and clean production methods. The gardens of JOALI are 100 percent organic: we grow vegetables, fruits, and culinary and medicinal herbs using sustainable techniques. Our team draws on both traditional knowledge and modern science to produce the best ingredients while simultaneously protecting the environment.


Waste Management

Our mantra is to give back to nature and prevent waste wherever possible. Food and garden waste are composted into natural fertiliser, while paper, packaging and cans are recycled. Hazardous waste is carefully managed in order to protect our staff, guests and the local environment. We also encourage digital reading materials across the island.
