Esin Gural Argat had a vision to create an artsy and indulgent resort, while still incorporating holistic elements. Her dream has now come true through JOALI BEING Maldivas located in Bodufushi near Raa Atoll.

Biophilic design principles were followed when creating this new wellness retreat, which blends nature and architecture to achieve equilibrium and counter negative vibrations. A team of naturopaths, movement experts and nutritionists lead bespoke wellbeing programs designed around four pillars - mind, skin microbiome and energy - for ultimate well-being.

Uncover your inner artist

JOALI BEING Maldivas, an exclusive island retreat located in the Maldives, brings an innovative art-immersive luxury experience. Situated on Muravandhoo Island of Raa Atoll and composed of 73 water and beach villas with artistic details that can be felt throughout, JOALI BEING Maldivas' artful luxury can be felt throughout each detail of its property.

Joali's design features pastel and powder tones with traditional woodcarvings to create a feminine mid-century aesthetic, all set within lush nature. This approach marries architecture and nature to honor its healing powers and celebrate the world outside.

The artworks at this property were inspired by its surrounding natural beauty, and were designed with this in mind (for instance, one villa features an abstract structure designed to look like the skirt of a whirling dervish). Each art piece carefully chosen by local artisans to highlight key issues like conservation and marine protection in this region.

At JOALI BEING, there are multiple ways for guests to engage with nature: guided walks through the resort's flower garden and snorkeling safari in some of Maldives' most exquisite marine habitat. Young guests also learn how to interact with live organisms while helping replant coral colonies as part of JOALI BEING's Coral Reef Restoration Project Nursery.

For guests seeking holistic approaches to their wellbeing, the retreat offers treatments and therapies addressing each of the four pillars of health: mind, skin, microbiome and energy. Their spa is staffed by Ayurvedic doctors, specialist healers and chefs that combine modern with ancient practices in order to bring you inner calmness and happiness.

Culinary offerings follow an earth-to-table model, offering ingredient traceability and fresh locally sourced food that benefits small farmers. One such eatery is Flow, an open air space serving breakfast and dinner.

At AKTAR on-site herbology center of the resort, an expert resident herbalist offers workshops and elixirs that target specific areas of the body like skin or microbiome health. Through workshops at this center, guests can also learn to make natural body creams, face masks and massage oils themselves.
