Joali Maldives, a very convenient location as it is only 40 min from Male with seaplane. The hotel has a lovely lounge at the airport where guests can checkin and shortly wait for the hotel’s seaplane. Once at the hotel, you will be amazed with the beauty of this natural island and the stunning rooms.
The hotel offers an excellent and tailored service, environmental friendly luxury and elegant design. The water villas, with an unobstructed lagoon view, are very spacious with high ceilings, great attention to details, a mix of rare marble and beautiful wood, a touch of high tech, a private pool and outdoor shower, which is a must for us. There is no space left without an incredible design and architecture.
Girls, don’t take too many shoes, you will adore being barefoot in the sand day and night.
You won’t be bored! The company Best Dive offers a large variety of activities, dives and water sports. We strongly recommend kite surfing.
If you wish to relax even more, Joali is the only resort in the Maldives with an authentic Turkish Hamam.
Our butler, Sameen, and Arlito, Head of F&B organized several romantic and creative dinners / breakfasts, wine and Sake tasting with Tushar, and private movie on the beach.
All guests do not need to wear masks while on the island. The hotel doctor visited our room 48h prior to departure for the PCR test which took less than 10minutes. Results were delivered 24h later. Nothing could have been more efficient.
My boyfriend and I visited the Maldives 7 times and our experience at the Joali was the best one with the Gili Lankanfushi. The staff make you feel that you are in your second home. You are not treated like a number as in O&O which is a much bigger hotel.
