Luxury Joali vacations


At a glance

Located on Muravandhoo Island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, Joali is surrounded by vibrant ocean and lush landscapes.

Villas are constructed from sustainable materials such as locally sourced timber and bamboo. There has been a great deal of effort in preserving the coral around Joali. A resident marine biologist works to protect marine life and reef ecosystems. The once deserted island in the Raa Atoll underwent a huge transformation when this resort was built. It’s a supremely cool place with world-class service. You’ll have your own ‘jadugar’ (Urdu for ‘magician’) to take care of your every need.

Despite having problematic laws concerning LGBTQ+ rights, the Maldives is one of Out Of Office’s most popular destinations. Due to the geography of the Maldives, each island is essentially run by the resort that occupies it. We work with an incredible selection of resorts, many of which have LGBTQ+ management, that are welcoming to the LGBTQ+ community.
