Using ESPA products with the most natural ingredients, Joali delivers beautiful skin and a renewed sense of inner calm.

ESPA has created a range of treatments exclusively developed for Joali Spa. Their Inner Joy treatment uses guided breathing and visualisation/visualization techniques to create a blissful state of relaxation, before a bespoke back massage and hot stones will release hidden muscular tension. Finish the treatment with a personalised facial and scalp massage, based on the needs of individuals, to revitalise radiant skin.

If you desire to detox your body, relax or work up a sweat overlooking breath-taking views of the Maldives, crystal clear oceans and luscious foliage. At Joali, fitness is a mindset.
