JOALI’s 73 villas and residences grace Muravandhoo Island on Raa Atoll in the north of the Maldives. To reach them, guests have a choice between a 40 minute seaplane ride from Male Airport or, for those unable to arrive in daylight hours, a short domestic flight followed by a 15 minute speedboat transfer. But the journey is worth it: this tropical island paradise will delight even the most discerning travellers. Guests can choose to be right on the beach or over the water; both types of villa come with their own private infinity pool. They successfully blend the rustic – traditional thatched roofs – with the cutting edge – a touch screen key pad that controls everything from the curtains to the lighting. With quality restaurant offerings and a decent spa, this is a reliably sophisticated and luxurious choice.
We love the Manta Ray Tree House, a private space which promises tailor-made food and music choices. Kids can pretend to be pirates while adults might simply choose to relax and enjoy the views of the trees and ocean. On the water, world-class diving and a wide range of water sports and excursions are available.
