A brand new luxury Indian Ocean hotel for 2018, JOALI Maldives is a heavenly sanctuary on the white shores of coral-encrusted Muravandhoo Island. There will be fine food, idyllic beaches, activities for families and couples, as well as huge villas starting at 108sq m with private pools and butler service. There’s no doubt that JOALI is going to be the hottest new hotel in the Maldives.
After taking an international flight to Male, the Maldives’ main island, wait in comfort and style at JOALI’s private airport lounge, before hopping aboard a seaplane and making the 45-minute flight to the hotel. As you soar through the skies, look down to the blue seas, coconut trees and porcelain sands of the Raa Atoll, getting a privileged glimpse at your home in the Maldives: Muravandhoo Island.
After this extraordinary welcome, prepare for more delights as you check into JOALI and are escorted to your luxury Maldives accommodation. There are various choices in terms of villas and residences, but should you go for the entry-level option – the Beach Villa – you certainly won’t be disappointed. This particular abode occupies 680sq m (of which 108sq m is purely interiors), covering a slice of beach, outdoor living area and infinity pool, with beautiful ocean views, of course. Butler and valet services are just some of the lavish touches you’ll be treated to, alongside impeccably designed spaces crafted with thatch, wood and stone, beneath graceful vaulted ceilings that lend an airy feel. Upgrades will grant you extra bedrooms, pools, libraries, and there’s the chance to sleep above the sea in a Water Villa. Meanwhile, the 990sq m Private Ocean Residence sports multiple dressing rooms, living rooms and terraces, not to mention superlative Indian Ocean views from every possible corner of the house, and a dhoni service that’ll whisk you off to the main lodge and restaurants in no time.
Marooned on a desert Indian Ocean island is paradise indeed at JOALI, but this doesn’t mean that you’ll go wanting for excellent food. There are four restaurants: one specialising in Italian, another reserved for Japanese-Peruvian fusion fare, and an international haunt comprising cuisines from South-east Asia, China, Europe and the Levant. On top of this, an unusual but fantastic culinary experience awaits at Her Kitchen, where you prepare your own meals under the guidance of an expert local chef, learning the tips and tricks to delicious Maldivian dishes before savouring your creation. There’s also a chocolate and ice-cream corner for kids and grown-ups alike. Then, the Mura Bar is where to sample light bites and refreshing drinks while admiring views of the sea. In the evening at Mura, watch live shows and retreat to the whisky and cigar lounge for a luxurious nightcap, or dine privately in your lavish villa and have the chefs come to you.
While luxury Maldives holidays are perfect for beachside lounging and casual sea swims, there’s a plethora of pastimes at JOALI to try. Go sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding or diving; play a round or two of tennis; and explore nearby islands on a dhoni ride. There’s more though: a spa, fitness centre, flower garden, art studio, boutique and immersive art experience, whereby pieces are dotted around the island and can be tracked down using the special Art Map. Children are extremely well-catered for here too, with so many activities to keep them busy: treasure hunts, storytelling, cookery classes and a treehouse to explore – even spa treatments!
So whether a luxury family holiday, couple’s break or special honeymoon in 2018/19, be the first to stay at the exquisite JOALI Maldives hotel.
