In this paradise of abundance, amid lush coconut palms and sparkling waters, everything makes perfect sense. The joy of our island emerges from within, from its inherent nature, spreading its wings each day. Let your joy, too, take flight in this magical realm.
Hidden away in the northern reaches of the Maldives, JOALI is situated on Muravandhoo Island in the Raa Atoll, one of the largest and deepest in the world.
The English word “atoll” comes from atholhu – a Dhivehi term used by early geographers to describe the region’s distinctive ring-shaped coral reefs, wrapped around tranquil lagoons.
Our art-immersive island resort is located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, fringed by pearly beaches and surrounded by brilliant blue waters that boast vibrant marine life. We invite you to discover one of the most beautiful places on earth, resplendent with nature’s treasures.
The Maldives is the collective name for 1,190 tiny islands scattered across the Indian Ocean. Some are inhabited, while others are used largely for tourism and agriculture.
Our host island of Muravandhoo is bordered by dreamy white beaches, a lush land of bountiful coconut palms and turquoise lagoons, brimming with exquisite marine life waiting to be discovered.
Caring For The Environment
The Maldives is a unique place with a fragile ecosystem. From the tiniest sea creature to tallest palm tree, each living thing plays a vital role in the replenishing experience created by these islands.
Our resort was constructed keeping in mind the conservation of the natural environment as much as possible. Over a thousand trees were preserved, and they continue to share their abundant gifts with us each day.
After the devastating coral bleaching event of 2016, which saw up to 85 percent of the reefs in the Maldives die out, we have a responsibility to help these precious ecosystems rehabilitate and recover. At JOALI, we do this through our Reef Restoration Programme.
By using the two-step gardening concept, we grow corals of opportunity in a mid-water nursery for 9-12 months before planting them back on the reef. Our efforts are focused on increasing corals that show resilience to heat, the driver of coral bleaching, and ensuring healthy genetic diversity.
