The first wellbeing island retreat of its kind in the Maldives.

Designed as a nature immersive wellbeing retreat, the first of its kind in the Maldives, JOALI BEING offers personalized transformative programs, with the ultimate aim for guests to return home feeling renewed, uplifted and inspired, with a new sense of ‘weightlessness’.

The retreat will offer an array of finest wellbeing facilities and unique transformational spaces, including hydrotherapy, movement, and sound healing experiences.


With the island’s wild forest remaining untouched, JOALI BEING has been built using Biophilic design principles, a scientific system of integrating architecture and design with nature, aiming to achieve harmony and enhance energy flow. Thanks to this approach our retreat evokes harmony and balance by eliminating negative vibrations and enhancing the energy flow of the landscape. Each of our 68 well living spaces come with private pools and special inclusions, such as customized wellbeing-bar setups, meditative musical instruments and wellbeing games.

How to find us

JOALI BEING resides on the secluded island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, an easy seaplan eflight away from Male International Airport. All guests are accommodated in the well-appointed JOALI private lounge prior to their travel. Raa Atoll’s unique topographical and geographical features make it rich and diverse in marine life.

The outer ridge of the atoll is deep while the inner islands are on shallower plateaus, making conditions uniquely favourable for the proliferation of coral sand fish. The western ridge of the atoll also lies close to one of the best deep water fishing sites in Maldives and makes the atoll an excellent place to see both reef and pelagic fish.
