Me and my husband just came back from our honeymoon at Joali, and what I can tell you is that this had been the best experience in our entire life. After working more than 15 years at the travel & hospitality Industry, I can say that Ive had never had such a memorable experience as the one we had at Joali. All team members (with no exception) made the difference in making each guest’s stay the most memorable as possible. The gastronomy is superb and had exceeded our expectations in all ways, from breakfast to dinner we could see the special touch and flavors inspired by the chefs. During our stay, we had the opportunity to be allocated at both beach and water villas and both of them are beautifully decorated in all minimum details (this without mentioning the breathtaking views provided by the blue and crystalline ocean). The ladies from the SPA provided me and my husband an unique massage treatment making us feel extremely relaxed and ready for new adventures. Our jadulgar (butler) Hayu was very fast and attentive to our requests, also giving us space and privacy that a honeymoon couple requires. This brief review is just to say how thankful we are for have stayed at the JOALI, and we could keep writing about others details that also helped to make this a memorable experience, but no extra words could replace the awesome feelings that you need to experiment by staying at the JOALI. Already looking forward to come back to the most magical island on the planet!!

Hotel's Favorite
JOALI is a breath-taking place. It offers some of the most luxurious villas in the world and combines these sublime accommodations with a stunning setting, wonderful food, professional service, a wonderful on-site art collection and a unique approach towards sustainability. We were particularly impressed by the design of the villas: warm, timeless, extremely luxurious, high-tech, very spacious, ... These villas have it all! They feel more like small palaces than hotel rooms, and will make you never want to leave the resort. Food is of very good quality, especially the Japanese-Peruvian restaurant Saoke. One of the best hotels we visited.

What can I say? From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, and beyond, you are made to feel especially welcome. All staff are friendly and so helpful with the biggest of smiles. The focus is on you as a guest having the best time. We stayed in a sunset villa which was superbly finished with so many thoughtful additions. The food is amazing and nothing is too much trouble.

My fiancé and I spent a wonderful 7 days in Joali as our first visit to the Maldives. In short the resort is a phenomenal experience and I would highly recommend it if you are fine with the price. Our criteria included: Decent diving reviews: We are both advance certified and wanted somewhere with good access to dive sites. We went on 3 morning dives in total and it was a great experience, 2 divers to 1 dive master, nice boat and high quality equipment Good food: We wanted at least 4 restaurants to rotate over the 7 days. We have heard from friends that food in the maldives can be sub-par given everything needs to be imported and hotel chains often cut corners. Joali doesnt cut corners, breakfast is amazing, very high quality produce, meats and fruits throughout. Make sure you spend a Friday there, their buffer dinner is awesome. We were very happy with all the restaurants we ate at, the italian restaurant was average. Villa: October was just just getting off the rainy season so we wanted a nice big villa so that we could still enjoy the day if we were stuck inside. The villa is just like advertised, go check it out on youtube. Very high ceiling, finishings are very tasteful Joali met our expectations and much more, which is a high standard given the price. We loved the attention to detail on every aspect of the customer experience, everything meticulously thought over and the premium option selected, whether that be the finishings in the room, books at the spa, produce in at the buffet, down to the hand soaps, we fully appreciate the little details with no corners cut. As a relatively new resort, we hope they can maintain the high level of standard in their service, supply chain and through the wear and tear.

I loved everything about this hotel. The service, the food, the attention to every little detail. Even if I tried to think of a negative, I wouldn’t be able to find it. I only wished that we could have stayed longer! Our butler Hebe was wonderful, she was extremely helpful and very friendly. The hotel staff in general were all very nice. Even though they had only 4 restaurants the breakfast buffet was exceptional and had an endless selection. I especially liked the Turkish feel to this hotel. The rooms were gorgeous, (we stayed in a 2 bedroom beach villa and were moved to a water villa the last day because they were expecting another group, which I wish didn’t happen) high ceilings, and beautifully furnished. I honestly can’t wait to go back.
