With as much desert-island charm as it has vowels, the Dhidhoofinolhu Archipelago is the postcard-perfect setting for LUX*. And, this luxury resort enjoys a delightfully secluded setting on South Ari Atoll, a slender islet curve fringed by two miles of powder-fine beaches. Host to its very own five-star PADI centre, the Lux* is also a diver’s and snorkeller’s paradise, complemented by a full spread of water sports. Whether it’s hover-boarding or jet skiing, kite surfing or wakeboarding, fishing or sailing, there’s something for everyone. What's more, it's all reached by a short floatplane hop from Malé.
At Lux*, accommodation comes in the form of 193 private villas, each either strung along the pristine beach or perched on silts over a crystal lagoon. Either on land or water, sunset or sunrise facing, you’ll be able to dive right into bathtub-warm waters. Back inside it’s strictly beach-house chic, with thatched roofs, ultra-contemporary furnishings and bold splashes of colour. There’s also a variety of options available; choose between everything from private gardens and outdoor showers to Jacuzzis, infinity pools and glass floors that look down onto the local marine life.
A Maldives getaway is all about being spoilt. And, with eight dining venues and five bars to choose from, you’ll be fully indulged, from fine-dining sushi, seafood tandoors and open-kitchen teppanyaki to home-made pasta, pool-side bars and a sophisticated take on a bustling local night market. Throughout, expect only the finest of ingredients, with highlights including Kobe beef and Italian cheeses. It’s all washed down with a fantastic array of watering holes; the cocktails are particularly good.
Despite the resort’s secluded setting, there’s a full spread of world-class facilities. There are two infinity pools, floodlit tennis courts and a state-of-the-art gym to choose from, along with a superb menu of treatments from the spa. Just remember to find time to relax on those idyllic white sands. There’s also plenty of little surprises, including island-roasted coffee at Café Lux*, beach cinemas, yoga sessions and bars where chairs swing out over the ocean.
Any element of this accommodation can be adjusted to suit your needs. Just contact us to find out more.
