Your Holiday

Your Destination

Soft white sand, clear azure waters and lush vegetation are the first things that comes to mind when you think of the Maldives...and visitors to this picture perfect paradise will not be disappointed! The Maldives is renowned for its incredible diving opportunities. The crystal clear water and shallow lagoons are perfect for snorkelling, while the reef walls offer a kaleidoscope of sea life for more experienced divers. The local culture features a lively mix of South Indian, Sinhalese and Arab influences that is reflected in the traditional music, cuisine and art of the island. The wonderfully renovated Lux South Ari Atoll Luxury 5* can be found on the island of Dhidhoofinolhu. As one of the largest island resorts in the Maldives, this magical stretch of sand is reachable via seaplane and is lapped by the dreamy turquoise ocean.

Lux South Ari Atoll Luxury 5*

Whether suspended over the water or scattered along the beach, every villa at the Lux South Ari Atoll Luxury 5* is designed to make the most of its enchanting island surrounds. Light, breezy and spacious, with splashes of bright island colour, the hotel has a sophisticated sense of simplicity with sweeping views across the beach to the sparkling lagoon.

With a 5-Star PADI dive centre, two infinity pools, floodlit tennis courts and the LUX* Me spa, you certainly won't be left wanting for activities to fill your days. Your tastebuds will be spoiled for choice too at the Lux South Ari Atoll Luxury 5* - expect island-roasted coffee at Café LUX*, sushi and teppanyaki at Umami and a fashionable beach club vibe at Beach Rouge.
