Located on the Raa Atoll, a 45-minute seaplane transfer from Malé Airport, lies the world-class luxury resort JOALI. The resort has 73 villas, with both beachfront and over-water options available. Each villa features individual handpicked accents and original artworks, but all feature state-of-the-art technology, private infinity pools, and en suite bathrooms with luxurious spa amenities.  

Guests have four restaurants to choose from, the highlight of which is undoubtedly Saoke, serving exquisite Japanese-Peruvian fine-dining cuisine in an incredible setting. The poolside Mura bar offers a more causal spot to relax, and there is even an artisanal chocolate and ice cream shop, which is certainly not something you find on every island in the Maldives!

The service here is absolutely top-notch, and every villa is served by your own private butler who will see to your every need. JOALI has facilities to match, with the impressive Espa Spa, a fully-equipped fitness centre, beachfront infinity swimming pool, and a range of active and cultural activities to suite every age and taste.
