PUBLISHED March 26, 2022

JOALI Maldives has been awarded the coveted title of ‘Best Resort’ by Hotel & Lodge, one of France’s leading travel and lifestyle publications.  

The trophy was collected in person by JOALI Founder, Esin Gural Argat, in a glittering ceremony at the Pavillon Cambon – Capucines in Paris on March 24. The award also entitles the property to be featured in the 2022 edition of 'The 108 Most Beautiful Hotels in the World' coffee-table book.  

The very first art-immersive resort in the Maldives, JOALI Maldives, is based on Raa Atoll, one of the largest and deepest atolls in the world, guests can expect brilliant blue waters, a myriad of sea life, and pristine white-sand beaches fringed by gently swaying coconut palms.   

Each of its 73 villas is the epitome of sustainable glamour and was inspired by individual stories and designed to take the guests on a rich sensory journey. Boasting a lavish range of culinary options, every dish at JOALI, tells a story and every plate becomes a journey, a journey of savours, fragrance, and joy – an art immersive experiential dining.   

Artisanal amenities, curated in-room bookshelves, thoughtful design and deluxe objets d’art creates an atmosphere of unconventional luxury on the island of joy. Central to the JOALI offering is its exceptional array of art and design which pervades all areas of the resort, while at its epicentre is the JOALI Art Studio & Gallery. A selection of international guest artists will exhibit installations to surprise and delight including London-based Glithero and New York-based Misha Kahn, often working with local artisans to intersect design and sculpture.
