JOALI Maldives has announced the creation of four new wellness programmes suited to all types of wellness-seekers, with dedicated retreat offerings tailored to solo travellers, friendship groups, couples and families. All programmes are available in one, three, or five-day options and are available throughout 2021 and 2022.
The Maldives may not immediately spring to mind as a destination for solo travel; however with spacious over-water villas and secluded beaches, JOALI, on the remote island of Muravandhoo in the beautiful Raa Atoll, never feels over-crowded with couples and actively welcomes solo travellers looking for quiet reflection in a place of overwhelming natural beauty.
JOALI’s new Solo Revitalisation programme is perfect for those who have been through big life changes, whether it’s a break-up of a relationship, overcoming burnout or simply needing to re-connect with themselves. The programme aims to boost health and happiness, encompassing elements of mindfulness and relaxation, gentle physical exercise, stretching and yoga and a delicious, island-sourced menu of nutritious mood-boosting meals eaten in a community setting.
Inclusions include mindful ESPA massages and inner beauty facials, hammam rituals, meditation and breathwork sessions, personalised fitness training and yoga practice on JOALI’s picturesque overwater pavilion. Superfood healthy lunches and gourmet dinners can be eaten in a community setting or at one of JOALI’s spectacular culinary art restaurants.
The Solo Revitalisation retreat costs from $435 (approx. £316) for a one-day package, $895 (approx. £650) for a three-day package, or $1,300 (approx. £944) for a five-day package. Price excludes accommodation and includes some meals. JOALI Maldives has villas from $2,190 (approx. £1,806) per night for a Beach Villa with Pool on a B&B basis: no single supplement.

With months of lockdown and self-isolation in our homes, never has transformative travel experiences for young people been so key to a healthy, happy family. JOALI has launched a new programme aimed to help families bond offline, enjoy each other’s company and improve mental and physical wellbeing.
Families can enjoy their own private villa and special programme including superfood healthy gourmet lunches in unique locations and daily physical activities with a twist – from aerial yoga on the over-water yoga pavilion to an island bootcamp, meditation, BoxFit or a group spin class in the air-conditioned studio. Families can bond over juice-making culinary classes, a beachside family photoshoot and watercolour painting lessons in JOALI’s herb garden.
At the ESPA Spa, families can head to the private ocean suite for a series of personalised treatments, including a special menu for teenagers, which involves a skin analysis with SkinVision lamp, double cleanse, exfoliation, skin-harmonising mask, skin-smoothing back treatment and foot and lower leg scrub and massage.
Families can enjoy the Family Indulgence wellness programme from $890 (approx. £645) for one day, $1,535 (approx. £1,115) for three days, or $2,148 (approx. £1,560) for five days. Price based on a family of three (prices available for larger family sizes too). Price excludes accommodation and includes some meals. JOALI has villas from $2,190 (approx. £1,806) per night based on three sharing a Beach Villa with Pool on a B&B basis. For further details and booking, please visit www.joali.com.
Designed for couples searching for a romantic and relaxing getaway in one of the world’s most beautiful and isolated locations, JOALI’s couple’s renewal programme strives to rekindle romance and reconnect souls while creating unique memories to last a lifetime.
Couples Renewal programming includes reviving couples’ massages and vitality facials, invigorating foot treatments and indulgent couples hammam rituals. Couples start their day with a relaxing ‘island wake up’ sunrise ceremony, meditation and breathwork and a couples yoga session on JOALI’s overwater pavilion at the ESPA spa. After a superfood healthy lunch on the beach, guests can enjoy a joint workout session with JOALI’s personal trainer. In the evenings, couples can then dine under the stars on JOALI’s beach or at Saoke’s overwater platform with nurse sharks swimming underneath.
A Couples Renewal retreat costs from $800 (approx. £580) for one day, $1,745 (approx. £1,268) for three days or $2,850 (approx. £2,075) for five-days.

After a year we’d all rather forget, guests can gather with their tribe – friends, colleagues or wellness warriors – for a rejuvenating hiatus on JOALI’s island of paradise and celebrate being able to travel again.
Solo treats include mindful massages, Hammam rituals and renewing facials, with shared experiences such as aerial overwater pavilion yoga and meditation, circuit training and joyful group feasts. The perfect balance of ‘me time’ and ‘we time’.
