SARAH FORSTER, JOALI MALDIVES, SHE’S GOING…

August 7, 2018

With Further East set to hit the shores of Bali’s Seminyak Beach in November, we’ve been catching up with the names behind the luxury Asian brands that are coming to join us.


An island retreat designed for sophisticated globalists in search of sustainable local glamour, Joali Maldives is one of the most exciting new Asian brands we’ve seen. Still to open, their mix of private beach and water villas will be serving up inventive fusion cuisine and thoughtfully curated offerings that celebrate craftsmanship, artistry and unconventional luxury. You’ll find art made from recycled goods by celebrated young artists along with a whisky lounge, ice cream store and wellbeing programme. Sarah Forster, Director of Sales, told us why she’s picked Further East as the place to introduce their brand to the world.

We’re going Further East…

…To boost brand awareness

“Joali is a new luxury brand and in order for us to be successful and well known, we need to carry the brand along with its message out to the world and make it visible to everybody.”
