JOALI BEING is based on the belief that understanding is the key to creating and sustaining wellbeing. The retreat is committed to nature immersive and responsible travel while honoring and respecting the local landscape, culture, and communities. JOALI BEING joins sister property JOALI Maldives.
Located on the secluded island of Bodufushi in Raa Atoll, JOALI BEING features 68 private beach and water villas; a culinary arts program comprised of four earth-to-table dining destinations; individualized immersion programs tailored to individual lifestyle and goals; a series of educational workshops and experiential classes guided by wellbeing experts, culinary maestros, and herbalists.
The architectural concept of the retreat was guided and executed by architects at the multidisciplinary design studio Autoban, along with Atolye4N, both of which also led the design concept of sister destination, JOALI. In an effort to align with JOALI BEING’s commitment to preserving, respecting and connecting with the local landscape, the retreat was built using biophilic design principles, which is a scientific system of integrating architecture and design with nature, with the goal to achieve harmony by eliminating negative vibrations and enhancing the energy flow of the island. In doing so, the island’s wild forest also remains untouched.
