The first wellbeing island of its kind in the Maldives was once an adults-only property, but this all changed with new and exciting additions for all ages to enjoy. From a new spa brand to a new villa to family-friendly programming, there’s more than one reason for family travelers to make JOALI BEING their home base for a Maldivian vacation.




All-New B’Kidult

Now open for all ages throughout the year, JOALI BEING Expands its experiences for families with the new B’Kidult. This zone for multigenerational play features specially curated offerings to inspire young hearts and minds, all centered around JOALI BEING’s Four Pillars of Wellbeing (Mind, Microbiome, Skin and Energy). Participate in wellbeing workshops and learning sessions like sound healing, cooking classes, talks with marine biologists, sensory workshops and more. There’s also experiences unique to kids and teens, including Young Yogi, Kids Qi Gong, an herbarium workshop, meditative imagination, trash-to-treasure eco art and more.


JOALI BEING Cure: A New Spa Brand

This new spa brings the award-winning “weightlessness” philosophy and signature Four Pillars of JOALI BEING to life. Located just a 10-minute boat ride away, the spa invites parents to indulge in new offerings, massages, specialized treatments, advice from visiting experts and more.




New Four-Bedroom Beach Residence

Families can now enjoy this brand-new, four-bedroom villa, complete with two pools. Now available for booking, this contemporary space is perfect for a family wellness getaway, with two infinity pools; scenic indoor/outdoor relaxation zones; and enough room for up to 10 guests, allowing even larger families to get a slice of heaven at JOALI BEING.


Even More Spaces to Come

JOALI BEING also recently introduced a new wine cellar, great for parents wanting an immersive tasting experience with experienced sommeliers. And, next month, the property welcomes a second Watsu room, specially designated for stretching, acupressure and massage while floating in the water and watching the stars above.
