Location

Nestled on the secluded island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, amid crystalline lagoons, pristine beaches and lush coconut palms, Joali Being is a 40-minute seaplane journey from Malé International Airport. With 68 villas, each with its own butler or “Jadugar”, Joali Being is the region’s first nature-immersive wellbeing island retreat.

Getting there

Spectacular views await you at Joali Being, whichever way you decide to travel. There are three ways to get here:

I - Shared Seaplane Flight. A 40-minute flight takes you from Male Airport to Bodufushi Island. Unwind and refresh at the private airport lounge before your seaplane flight. Pre-arranged transfers also enjoy a special Joali style greeting.

II - Private Seaplane Charter. Let an exclusive seaplane whisk you away to this remarkable retreat. Sit back and relax in total privacy during the 40-minute flight from Male Airport to Bodufushi Island.

Minimise waiting time for immigration formalities with CIP “Maamahi” Lounge Service at Male Airport. Available for arrival and departure, upon request.

Please note that seaplane transfers are available only during daylight hours.

Culinary Arts

Immerse in the vibrancy of FLOW, the island's open-plan interactive dining space featuring three signature kitchens. Plantae offers vegetarian and vegan cuisine, Su serves ocean-to-table pescatarian fare, and B’Well features a signature Joali Being menu, including a selection of Earth-to-Table meals. For sunset seekers, there is Mojo – the tropical beach sanctuary located on a three-layered sundeck and is an ideal lunch and sundowner spot by the pool. Culinary arts at Joali Being focus on an earth-to-table initiative, promising ingredient traceability and offering fresh, locally harvested foods that support small farms and are sustainably sourced.
All food and drink options at Joali Being have been expertly curated with the help of the retreat’s nutritionists, offering a selection of flavours and cuisines with healthy and indulging dining options. Personalised nutrition sessions and co-created menu recommendations are available.

Sustainability

The Maldives is a unique destination with a fragile ecosystem. From the tiniest marine creature to the tallest palm tree, each living thing plays a vital role in the replenishing experience created by these islands. At JOALI BEING, the conservation of the natural environment is a priority and a privilege. Based on biophilic design principles, the retreat’s innovative landscaping and architecture embrace its incredible surroundings.

Joali Being is home to one of three turtle conservation sanctuaries in Maldives which is developed by cooperating with Olive Ridley Project, as well as a Reef Restoration Project and a coral nursery. The island is collaborating with EarthCheck on several long-term sustainability initiatives, including a desalination water-bottling plant, a rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling system, a glass crusher and recycler, and a plant waste shredder for fertilising.
