Off-the-Grid Luxury in the Maldives

Balmy waters smoothly wash up to powdery white sand beaches. A soft breeze blows through the curtains of your dark wood over-water villa. You step outside, fresh cocktail in hand, and dip your toes in your private swimming pool. Throwing your head back, you feel the warm sun on your face.

This isn’t a dream; it’s the new and improved LUX* South Ari Atoll. The five-star resort in the Maldives has recently completed a comprehensive facelift, taking guests on a full-sensory luxury experience. It all begins in your private villa. Here, beach house meets chic in a trendy open concept cocoon. Among the 193 spacious villas available, guests can find 46 romantic pool villas perfect for an intimate adults-only retreat.

In more ways than one, guests are spoilt for choice with the range of activities to explore the crystal-clear waters. A premium collection of eight restaurants and five bars serves the best of international and local cuisine.

With its recent renovation, LUX* South Ari Atoll has sought to create a one-of-a-kind luxury experience where guests can not only unwind but also indulge their curiosity with unique opportunities to gain new skills and experiences.

With the LUX* Photo Fanatics, guests can learn to capture their memories in a new light. Creative minds can let loose at the new Junkart Studio & Gallery and take home a unique souvenir.

In addition to these new features, expert-led workshops are added regularly to the resort’s event calendar in the hopes of connecting travellers with inspiring professionals in various fields.With so much on offer, there’s never a dull moment at the LUX* South Ari Atoll.
