There is joy in weightlessness
At JOALI BEING, the first nature immersive wellbeing island retreat in the Maldives, a journey of transcendence awaits. This exclusive sanctuary invites wellbeing seekers to experience “weightlessness” – a sense of freedom, joy and lightness.
Built according to biophilic design principles, the retreat offers 68 well-living spaces with private pools and special inclusions, such as customised mini-bar setups and meditative musical instruments. Designed to restore natural balance and facilitate personal transformation, the wellbeing offerings are woven around the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy. Ranging from five nights to three weeks, the signature Immersion Programmes are customised to the unique needs and goals of each guest. Transformative spaces unfold across the island, offering endless inspiration. Areka features Quiet Zones with separate male and female hydrotherapy areas, along with facilities such as the ice grotto, sauna, steam, vitality pools, garden, lockers and changing rooms. Guests can explore movement and performance at CORE, an expansive zone fitted with Technogym and Nohrd equipment, and experience a healing blend of acoustics, music and rhythm at SEDA, the sound therapy hall. KAASHI, the hydrotherapy hall, offers an array of water therapies in complete privacy – from the relaxation of Watsu, to the exhilaration of the Aufguss Sauna. The Turkish-style Hammam hosts calming sojourns while the Salt Inhalation Room offers halotherapy. Elemental therapies with healing crystals and massages with signature essential oils help to bring each of the Four Pillars into harmony. Rebalancing and renewal also come in the form of restorative teas, tonics and balms, crafted by the resident Herbologist at AKTAR.
Culinary arts at JOALI BEING focus on an earth-to-table initiative, promising ingredient traceability and offering fresh, locally harvested foods that support small farms and are sustainably sourced. 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 meat and poultry options. 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.
Each day at JOALI BEING is filled with moments of discovery, mindfulness and invigoration. Bespoke luxury combines with nature’s purest gifts to create a sense of genuine wonder and soulful rejuvenation.
