LUX* North Male Atoll
A unique proposition for this exceptionally beautiful corner of the globe, the LUX* North Male Atoll is a modern resort with just 67 residences and a distinctly ‘South Beach’ vibe.
Think exclusive penthouse retreats, trendy bars with live DJs, incredible water-based activities and signature LUX* service.
The innovative resort is set on a six-hectare island just a speedboat, or seaplane, transfer from the airport. What makes it so very special for guests is certainly the accommodation: with each residence crowned with a rooftop terrace for enjoying spectacular Maldives views, barbecues, morning yoga and evening cocktails, and each residence also boasts a private infinity pool.
For relaxation, there’s the outdoor cinema and two resort pools, as well as the LUX* ME Spa, set overwater for added tranquillity and sense of space.
Children can enjoy the facilities of the kids’ club and their own programme of treatments at the spa; that is when they’re not getting active thanks to the array of watersports, tennis and beach volleyball. Parents can also indulge in some time to themselves with access to a babysitting service.
Dining is a real treat and makes the all-inclusive board an obvious option. Stock up for a day on the water at the incredible buffet breakfast at GLOW, taste Peru and Japan fusion dishes at INTI, and sink your feet into the sand with a cocktail as the sun melts into the horizon at Beach Rouge.
Those seeking to truly immerse themselves in the Maldives should of course head out onto or under the water, with a wildlife-spotting boat trip or expert-led diving course.
