Joali, Raa Atoll

Joali: the true essence of island bliss. Take a deep breath and unwind by the silky white sands and emerald waters of Muravandhoo island in the Maldives. Step out of the 73 luxury beachfront and overwater villas and discover a laidback attitude complemented by experiential dining and hair-tingling watersports. The perfect stay and the perfect day begins bright and early here with a private sailboat cruise to a sunrise breakfast picnic and ends with soothing live music at sunset whilst snuggled within a cosy beachfront cabana. It’s the days like these that’ll have you never wanting to leave.

LOCATION

Hidden on the petite island of Muravandhoo, Joali is the perfect choice for its idyllic position on the Raa Atoll, one of the deepest and largest in the world, boasting sensational marine life that’s waiting to be explored. To get there, we’ll whisk you across from Male airport to the island on a short 40-minute scenic seaplane flight, giving you a glimpse over the intricate seascapes and atolls of the Maldives.

YOUR ROOM

Nothing beats that feeling of stepping out from your room and immediately feeling the powdery sand between your toes. At the spacious beachfront villas, swim under a sky full of stars in an exclusive infinity pool set within the privacy of a lush tropical garden. Or, for that added extravagance, thatched Water Villas perch on stilts directly over the lagoon and open up onto sweeping panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, while brightly coloured fish swim beneath the sundeck and pool. Check in – and dive in.
