On this year’s International Nurses Day on Thursday (12 May), Joali Being invited a group of nurses from a neighbouring island in Raa Atoll for a celebration of their humanitarian service.
The nature immersive wellbeing retreat hosted 14 nurses working at Raa Meedhoo Health Centre. The celebration began with an appreciation tea, featuring a handpicked selection of calming, nourishing and uplifting blends, which was followed by a calming meditation session guided by a resident expert, who offered useful techniques for mindfulness and reaching a state of deep relaxation.
“We are so incredibly thankful for their hard work, especially over the past two years. Our local nurses went above and beyond to ensure the health and welfare of the community,” said Susanne Fisch, Director of Wellbeing. “We at Joali Being wanted to show our appreciation for their invaluable contributions. As a small gesture of our gratitude, we organised a few special experiences for their relaxation and rejuvenation.”
She added: “Along with helping our guests, we also want to use our expertise for the wellbeing of people in our local communities.” Since opening its doors in late 2021, Joali Being has created hospitality internships for young Maldivian aspirants, provided assistance to neighbouring island communities, and conducted virtual educational sessions for local university students on International Women’s Day.
International Nurses Day is celebrated on the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale.
Joali Being is the first and only well-being retreat of its kind in the Maldives. The property’s unique offerings are structured around a multi-disciplinary approach called the Four Pillars of Joali Being: Mind, Skin, Microbiome and Energy. The island’s Learning Centre offers a series of educational workshops and experiential classes with wellbeing experts, culinary maestros and herbalists. The resort has 68 exclusive guest villas with pools, consisting of 33 beach villas and 35 water villas.
