LUX South Ari Atoll

South Ari Atoll | Deluxe

LUX* are known for their spotless approach, and in the Maldives resort this is complemented by a relaxed spontaneity. The otherwise uninhabited tropical island boasts 2.5 miles of beaches, acres of thriving gardens to roam, and gorgeous villa accommodation that is ideal for a family stay.

All villas are presented as contemporary open-plan home-from-homes - the overall effect is smart and spacious, yet puts you playfully at ease. The overwater villas are especially good fun - glass floors in the living areas let you watch for marine life right beneath your feet. On land, huge pool villas overlook the lagoon, surrounded by lush undergrowth for privacy and getting safely lost in.

A huge range of restaurants and bars ensure that the resort’s desert-island status doesn’t limit your dining options. The choice of international cuisine spans from expertly prepared pizza in a relaxed beachside shack, to Japanese fine dining and specialities from around the Indian Ocean.

The resort’s 5 star PADI centre offers daily dives to 37 fantastic sites nearby, along with courses for all levels. Available water sports range from windsurfing and waterskiing to those all-important banana rides, whilst on the island there are two large pools and comprehensive sports facilities.

The stylish LUX* spa combines a great range of relaxing and pampering treatments with a wellbeing programme that offers yoga, tailored fitness and nutrition guidance. The resort also offers excellent facilities for kids and teens, with supervised sports and activities that let them take full advantage of the island setting, while parents enjoy some very welcome relaxation.

We Say
With its South Ari Atoll location LUX is perfectly placed if you want to swim with whale sharks - and who wouldn't?
