Enjoy breath-work and Sufi poetry at this immersive island retreat.
If there ever was a time to see in the new year on a far-flung beach, it’s right now, and the newly opened, ‘nature immersive’ Joali Being resort in The Maldives wants to help you do it right. Their program of communal, transformative experiences is designed to support your journey to optimum physical, mental and spiritual health so you're ready to take on 2022.
Two master practitioners take the lead to create the holistic approach at this Maldivian resort. Sandro Thiara Mota, a coach, and professional athlete, guides breath-work sessions that help release deep-rooted tensions, while Nirupam, a Sufi master and meditation expert, teaches the practice of ritual prayer, whirling, and mystical poetry reading, that ignite and open the heart to divine love.
It's not just a mental and emotional workout either – there's a fitness team on hand for beach workout sessions that include running and functional training. Keep your eyes peeled for Ozzie, the island’s resident sea turtle.
Opened in November, this island retreat is the first of its kind in the Maldives and home to 68 exclusive guest villas. These are matched with unique transformational spaces that allow guests to immerse themselves in elemental therapies and healing experiences.
At the center of everything is nature, which according to the resort's philosophy, is the pathway to 'true weightlessness'. What this means exactly is for you to discover.
Get in touch and we'll make sure you can be your best self for the coming new year.
