Made for peaceful off the grid retreats

Is a resort full of surprises, vitality, and enthusiasm.
Made for peaceful off the grid retreats

At LUX* South Ari Atoll, it takes leisure matter seriously and equips itself with its Lighter and Brighter concept of zestful hues: staff's business cards printed in cheerful tones of purple, orange, and pink; turquoise polo shirts and lime green flip-flops, which are allowed to be taken home as souvenirs, in every guest’s room.

Wide selection of room categories

Lux* has a wide selection of room categories and a large quantity of villas nestled in different locations on the long slice of the resort island and the waters nearby. 

Dining at Lux Maldives

It also provides at least twelve excellent food outlets and bars, concentrated on mostly three main areas for easy accessibility.

Glass floor panel

My Prestige Water Villa has white and turquoise shades that dominate the bed, paintings, and cushions. One thing I adore is the see-through glass floor panel beside my king-sized bed that enables me to watch with amusement fish swimming around in the blue seawater below my feet. 

Beach Villa

Another room category, Beach Pavilion, which is a two unit villa under one roof is a perfect choice for families or friends, and the good news is connected rooms would be guaranteed upon reservation in advance, a pleasant service which most other resorts are hard or even not able to deliver.

International buffet cuisine at The Island Kitchen which provides all day meals is remarkable. On particular days there would be live music performances during lunch. Home made popcorn-flavor ice cream and passion fruit sorbet are fabulous desserts you should not miss!  

Lux ice cream

Lux*’s own signature brand of wine, Scrucap, produced in South Africa and coffee made of organic beans are two must-try items of the resort. This is the first resort I have heard of owning private labels for two best-selling beverages in an island resort. 

Herb\'s Garden at Lux South Ari Atoll

Vegetable lovers would find Herb's Garden as their sanctuary. Savoring freshly plucked vegetables prepared at the live cooking station under the evening starry skies could not just be better. This garden concept is available at other Lux* properties as well.

Lux South Ari Atoll - Spa

I have the privilege of pampering myself with a Balinese spa treatment by a professional masseuse who comes all the way from Bali. The petite lady turns out to have very strong yet flowing hand movements. With her acute sense of touch, she knows at once what is not right with my body.

 Spa treatment room with a garden view

I feel very invigorated after having the treatment in one of the idyllic treatment rooms with a garden view. A refreshingly healthy sour plum drink served after the treatment is just icing on the cake.

Armed with a total of eight properties scattered on the Indian Ocean, Lux* is going to expand its wings in Lijiang and Chengdu in China, and Dubai as well. I am sure it would be a smart move to penetrate the markets of both vibrant countries with its novel concept of leisure.

Family Holidays in Maldives

Holidays would not be perfect without sharing the moments with families and friends. Lux* is taking a step ahead in understanding this particular need of its customers. A phone booth adjacent to the reception area is at guests' disposal to call their loved ones and it is complimentary.

To cool yourself off when strolling on the beach you can grab a drink from the self-service secret bar. It is a steel drum filled with bottles of all sorts of soft drinks and alcoholic drinks. All you have to do is just writing down your room number, grab the drink of your choice and you are good to go.

Pose and pick your favorite pictures at the Photo Shack booth and the hard copies of the pictures are available for a fee. 

When roaming around the bushes, do look out for bottles, and if you are lucky enough, the message in the bottle would bring you good luck of a complimentary spa treatment, dinner, or even wines!

Me and my wife had a great honeymoon arranged by OV Holidays. Without them, I wouldn't have found this package. Not to mention meeting us at the airport and helping us all the way till our departure to the local island. And we were surprised seeing them on our way back meeting us and helping us out again with the check in of our flight back home.

Thank you so much :)
