Wonderfully welcoming staff and an easy going ambiance coupled with an incredible choice of accommodation and facilities to suit both couples and families; it’s easy to see the appeal of LUX*South Ari Atoll (formerly LUX*Maldives).
Maldivian style thatched roof accommodation can be found in varying locations around the island, both on the beach and over water; some additionally feature private pools. The Water Villas boast breathtaking ocean views and you can watch the sun rise or set, depending on which side of the island you choose to stay. The Prestige Water Villas, on the west side of the island, are away from the main resort areas and are ideal for couples looking for peace and privacy.
The list of facilities is endless and the highlight is the extremely well-equipped watersports centre and the Dive Centre. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced diver you can expect individual attention and great diving; the dive team is especially knowledgeable about the local whale shark population.
If you’re looking for more relaxing pastimes, head to the LUX* Me Spa where you can choose your pampering in a garden or overwater treatment room. Or simply relax by one of the two swimming pools or on a secluded spot on the beach – there are 4 kilometres to choose from! Children are extremely well catered for at PLAY, the supervised kids club, with fun activities from art classes to treasure hunts. Teens also have a dedicated hang-out zone at Studio 17.
You’re equally spoilt for choice when it comes to and wining and dining with an incredible seven restaurants and six bars! Stay a week and you can dine in a different location and on a different cuisine every evening. After dinner, dance til sunrise at the island’s nightclub!
