LUX South Ari Atoll Maldives Holiday

The LUX South Ari Atoll Maldives Island Resort is a unique island hotel that aims to add a personal touch and giving guests more than expected.

The resort is one of two LUX properties in Maldives and creates a spontaneous atmosphere with anything from cinema screenings on the beach to pop-up musical performances, you will find an exciting feature in every part of this hotel. The LUX South Ari Atoll Maldives Island Resort is situated next to an ideal lagoon for snorkelling and whale shark spotting. Follow secret pathways through the tropical gardens and taste authentic Maldivian cuisine from a selection of restaurants. Wherever you venture at the LUX Maldives luxury resort, expect to be pleasantly surprised.

Here, you’ll discover 193 private villas, dotted at the water’s edge along 4 kilometers of powder fine beaches and perched on stilts above a crystal-clear lagoon. On land or above water, sunset facing or sunrise, these super spacious villas and pavilions bring an entirely original vibe of coastal, beach house chic to the Maldives.

LUX* wouldn’t be LUX* without a few surprises. Expect island-roasted coffee in Café LUX*, impromptu screenings at cinema paradiso and the chance to hang your hopes on our magical tree of wishes
