Joali Being


Philosophy & sustainability

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.


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.


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.

SPA & Wellness

As you traverse beyond boundaries at JOALI BEING, experience true weightlessness – a sense of freedom, joy and lightness. From the tranquil rhythm of ocean waves to the grounding embrace of ivory sands, each day on our nature immersive island is filled with moments both exhilarating and mindful.



Open your heart to the timeless wisdom of the sea, the sand, the sun and the stars. As you reconnect with the generous gifts of nature, a journey of self-discovery and renewal begins. Combining ancient knowledge with modern science, our curated offerings are woven around the Four Pillars of JOALI BEING – Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy.
