JOALI BEING, the only nature-immersive wellbeing retreat of its kind in the Maldives ...

Surrounded by ethereal lagoons and brimming with lush coconut palms, JOALI BEING is tucked away in the far northern reaches of the Maldives. Situated on Bodufushi Island in Raa Atoll, JOALI BEING reflects the wondrous spirit of its natural surroundings. Explore sound therapy in the indigenous forest, meditate above the tranquil waves, and join the daily sunset ritual on ivory sands.

Without a doubt JOALI BEING is in another league when it comes to wellness and wellbeing. From the pre-arrival questionnaire to the full consultation on arrival, the team work tirelessly to provide an outstanding and unique experience.

Bodufushi island is home to one of only three turtle conservation sanctuaries in the Maldives, developed in cooperation with the Olive Ridley Project.
