Whether seeking a peaceful hideaway or active adventure, the picture-perfect island of Dhidhoofinolhu is home to LUX* South Ari Atoll, a luxury resort where your fantasy of a laid-back, desert island paradise is about to come true.
Here, you’ll discover 190 private villas, dotted at the water’s edge along two miles of powder fine beaches and perched on stilts above a crystal lagoon. On land or above water, sunset facing or sunrise, these super spacious rooms and suites bring an entirely original vibe of coastal, beach house chic to the Maldives.
With a 5-Star PADI dive centre, the resort’s limpid waters are a diver’s nirvana but there’s an equal abundance of snorkeling and opportunities to visit the resident whale sharks. LUX* South Ari Atoll also offers two infinity pools, floodlit tennis courts and a Techno-gym fitness center while the LUX* Me spa, is host to a wellness concierge and a menu of indulgent and stimulating treatments.
LUX* South Ari Atoll boasts seven eateries and six bars. East Market is a sophisticated take on a bustling local night market. Umami offers fine dining from separate sushi, teppanyaki and robata counters as well as the Maldives’ largest selection of sakes and Japanese whiskeys. Allegria, Senses and Island Kitchen stimulate international palettes and the new Beach Rouge introduces the dolce vita of a fashionable beach club to the island.
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.
