The Maldives through Joali

A scenic 45-minute seaplane from Malé on the island of Muravandhoo, Joali is described as the first and only immersive art resort in the island archipelago, offering elegant abodes, unmatched experiences and barefoot luxury, all while shining the spotlight on sustainability.

An exclusive resort signed by Turkish architecture studio Autoban. For the project, architects were entrusted with preserving the delicate ecosystem of the island while adapting the hotel to the existing natural elements.

Joali is a hybrid of the best that the Maldives has to offer. Turn up barefoot at Mura Bar for a sunset Martini, or get dolled up for dinner at Japanese restaurant Saoke. It’s this deep-rooted, solid luxury, without the slightest hint of dictating who guests should be, what they should wear and how they should relax, that immediately aligns Joali with the frontrunners.
