    Property Type



  • A tropical private island resort set on one of the Maldives’ biggest islands, the extensive facilities make it a great choice for families.

    Luxury with a light-hearted twist is the resort’s motto, where fun and a dash of non-conformity creates a relaxed and informal vibe. Within easy reach of the resort there are 37 dive sites, including wrecks just waiting to be explored from the five star PADI dive centre. Back on land there is always something happening, from tennis to yoga.

    You can retire to the pampering LUX*Me spa while the kids are entertained at PLAY or Studio17 teens club, which offer exciting activities and child-friendly meals.

    Contemporary interiors, bright colours and amenities including complimentary Wi-Fi and mini bars feature in eight different accommodation categories. The spacious beach pavilions and villas, some with their own pool, are shaded by banana trees and are perfect for families. There is a choice of water villas with direct access to the lagoon. For the ultimate indulgence the LUX Villa sleeps up to four and has a magnificent glass-bottom living room over the lagoon.

    Dining is varied and with a wide range of restaurants and bars meaning you will be spoilt for choice. Enjoy inspired cuisine at The Island Kitchen as you gaze over the ocean or head to East with its great selection of Thai, Chinese and Indonesian dishes. At The Beach and Allegria Restaurant and Bar, the Mediterranean meals offered include Italian delights and pizzas for an easy family option. 

    With such a fantastic combination of natural beauty, great service and fun quirks, a holiday to LUX* South Ari Atoll could hardly be more enjoyable or, thanks to the LUX* All-Inclusive Programme, more carefree.
