First of all, I am not the type of person to write reviews at all, but here I am sitting in the airport on my way home and writing this. I couldn’t even postpone it, because when someone is great at their job you should tell them that and be thankful. And that is our experience in Joali. It was the best vacation we’ve ever had, I could not honestly find a flaw in the whole experience. From the welcome to the comfortable lounge that gives you a hint of what’s coming. To the Joali seaplane which was very good compared to other seaplanes. Going to the arrival jetty where the true experience begins with a very warm and friendly welcome from the family of Joali. And finishing up with the incredible luxurious villa that was far more beautiful than all the images you’ve saw online. I mean, truly there is nothing bad to say about Joali. The island is beautiful. The villas are one of the best you’ll ever see in Maldives or in your life for that matter. The food has a very good variety and a very good quality. The spa treatments are spectacular. The staff will go above and beyond to make your stay pleasant and your wishes come true. And I mean everyone from the managers to the staff of the restaurants to the staff of the kids club. Every single one of them was a pleasure to deal with. And all of them was so nice to our 2 year old boy although he was chasing around everywhere and making their jobs harder. And on that note, I would like to leave a speacial thanks to Ahmad our Jadugar. He was truly a magician when it comes to making everything easy and convenient for us, very professional and attentive to details. While being very polite and respective of our privacy at the same time. He was one of the best parts of our trip. If you’re thinking about going there, you definitely should. I don’t think anyone would regret choosing this place.

Hotel's Favourite
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.

We had a fantastic stay at Joali. On the occasion of our first wedding day, we renewed our vows again. The entire team supported us perfectly and ensured an unforgettable moment. Our two Jadugars Sameen and Najah did an excellent job and looked after us very well. Thank you very much again for that! The food is fantastic in each of the five restaurants and we were able to enjoy an enormous variety of different dishes! In all of our travels, we have never met such a motivated, friendly and prepared staff. We were always served extremely courteously and warmly. It was therefore all the more difficult for us to say goodbye and we will definitely come back!

The hole experience of Joali is absolutely amazing! From the seaplane that takes you to the hotel, the incredible ocean villas with its own huge pool and the great restaurants. For my taste the prices that they charge for everything in the resort is extremely high having already paid an expensive room rate, but the services are amazing!
