JOALI Maldives Announces New Fitness Programming Available Exclusively to Guests
JOALI Maldives today debuts new wellness initiatives for guests at the all-villa resort, including its RAW Fitness program and partnership with LUX Tennis. Following JOALI’s “joie de vivre” philosophy, which encourages guests to find joy in every passing moment, the program celebrates the resort’s dual commitment to sustainability and luxury.
“At JOALI, we pride ourselves on offering guests exceptional experiences and are thrilled to partner with LUX Tennis, as well as provide an immersive fitness option through our work with the Ungoofaru School, which also gives back to the local community,” said Steven Phillips, Area General Manager at JOALI Maldives. “These offerings allow guests to enjoy the finer things in life, and we look forward to guests finding new ways to connect with nature and learn or practice a new skillset alongside experts in the field.”
The RAW Fitness program builds on JOALI’s commitment to wellness and sustainability, while also strengthening its philanthropic ties through a partnership with the Ungoofaru School in Raa Atoll. JOALI’s RAW Fitness equipment – everything from handcrafted wooden structures to coconut hand weights and natural fiber ropes – is built by students who are practicing carpentry through the school’s vocational studies program utilizing natural, recyclable materials from the resort, such as tree trunks, coconuts, wood, sand and rocks.
The program inspires guests to take their fitness journey outdoors and enjoy their Maldivian island surroundings. This approach to “green exercise” is known to have positive physical and psychological health benefits, including reducing stress and mental fatigue, improving concentration and cognitive function, as well as increasing the ability to cope with stress.
Guests can participate in the program by visiting the RAW Fitness cabana, a uniquely-built Maldivian structure with a sustainable thatched roof. Fitness instructors are also available to conduct a guest analysis which identifies a personalized path to meet each guests’ specific fitness needs. The program is complimentary for all guests and is also available for private or group training.
JOALI has also partnered with LUX Tennis, a Spanish tennis management and concierge services company who consults with luxury properties to provide exclusive programming. LUX Tennis curated a new tennis guest program at JOALI, which includes a rotating tennis professional available to guests, complimentary social tennis for adults and children as well as private lessons.
The tennis court can be booked complimentary on a first come first serve basis, while private lessons are available by reservation Group sessions are held every Sunday for adults and every Wednesday for children under 12 years of age.
