    • Honeymoon experience far exceeded our expectations

      First of all we would to point out a big THANK YOU to the whole team at Joali Maldives!!!
      Especially our Jadugar (this means “Magician” in South Asian language) Elisa made our stay far better than we could have ever expected. Even the GM Enver and the Director of Culinary Ashley have been omnipresent every day and greeted us as if we knew each other already for years – which isn’t the standard in most of the ultra luxury resorts we had already the chance to travel to.

      The slogan “island of joy” points out the philosophy of this one of a kind resort. We really found a jewel in the Indian Ocean which made our honeymoon even more special. The team, the villa, the food simply everything is perfect.

      When it comes to all the little details we have to say: Experience it on your own. We have been surprised nearly every day with little wow’s. We really left our heart on Joali and maybe – we will receive the chance to afford a second trip to his heavenly paradise.

      Even due to the pandemic we postponed our plans for our honeymoon several times. The reservation team at Joali was super flexible and supported us in any kind of direction. As soon as you touch down in Malé there is always a helping hand making your stay most enjoyable. From the pick up service after security through the lounge service until the check out procedure in your villa – simply perfection!!!

      My professional responsibility is also related to the highest standards of customer service and I can really tell you that this seamless customer experience is far beyond standards. You recognize that every process and every interaction has been reviewed and optimized to the best kind of way. Even the car which carries you from the airport to the lounge has screens with videos of the island and is super clean. The same situation you’ll find in the lounge which has been already equipped with the interior colors and furnitures of your villa. I could narrate on and on but this would definitely explode the given frame. 🙂

      Even the food – doesn’t matter if breakfast, lunch or dinner – is on the highest level you could imagine. The sushi we had couldn’t even better in a 3 Star Michelin restaurant!

      We have never seen such an incredible villa before. The pool was super huge, the sunsets simply the most romantic you can receive and the tidiness impeccable.

      Really, if you are looking for THE resort in the Maldives this is it.

    • Worth every penny!

      My husband and I got married at Joali Dec 2020 and it’s by far the best resort we have ever visited. After lots of research and comparing different hotels in the Maldives we are so glad we picked this one.

      The service is out of this world. The attention to detail is second to none. Big thanks to Ali, Vittu, the someliers (sorry, I can’t remember their names) and so many other people that made our visit so incredible.

      The resort itself is so stunning and perfect in every way. There is actually quite a lot to do activity wise aswel so I would recommend booking 7 days at least if you can.

      Food is amazing at all the restaurants and they have done a fabulous job of incorporating some traditional Maldivian food.

      We are already counting down the days until we return!

    • Outstanding holidays in Joali Maldives

      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.

      Special thanks to:

      Sameen – Our butler who took care of our every need.
      Mondez – who oversees all the butlers
      Alito – Head of F&B who made sure we had a variety of great food throughout the entire week
      Naveen & Adam – Who taught us how to kite surf with a smile on their faces every day. 
Diving team – Rachel, Julia & Andrey who brought us to beautiful sites. 

      Tushar – Saoke Sommelier with whom we had an epic wine and sake tastings. 

      Shifaz – The room division manager who runs such a great team. 

      Shan – The head of security who organized football games with the staff where my boyfriend was invited to play. 

      Ronny – The Gym coach who is always smiling and happy to assist.
      Shiwee and Zina for the delicious breakfast.
