LUX* South Ari Atoll

LUX* South Ari Atoll

"Push the boundaries of activity or addictive stillness"

A short seaplane journey from Malé is all that is needed to be skimming a crystalline lagoon and touching down onto the coral-fringed shores of the large island of Dhidhoofinolhu. Space allows for choice. Guests can walk, cycle, or hail a golf cart to enjoy the favourite haunts on this long slice of Maldivian paradise. None of this scale, however, detracts from the feel of splendid seclusion, natural beauty, and intimate tranquillity.

Location:A 25-minute seaplane journey from Velana International Airport during daylight hours or a 20-minute scheduled domestic flight and 10-minute speedboat option available in the late evening.
Perfect for:Wide range of activities.
Why we love it:Plenty of opportunity to explore and be active, but with the freedom for ultimate relaxation.

Stylishly simple rooms, suites, and villas are scattered over the lagoon along powdery beach sands or under evocative palms. Privacy and isolated serenity characterise all the accommodation options here. The light-filled interiors are brightly furnished, comfortably laden with amenities, and tuned in perfectly to the nightly soundtrack of the sea that quickly induces a refreshing slumber.

LUX* South Ari Atoll allows for an endless selection of sporting activities: yoga, volleyball, waterskiing, windsurfing, snorkelling, and a PADI diving centre. Guests can even dive in a protected area that is home to rare whale sharks. There’s also a host of daytime excursions to other islands. If so much activity means too much exertion, on site there are two stunning infinity pools for those who plan on more sedate pursuits. Add a sanctuary with a heated pool, sauna and hammam, and indulgence seekers can choose to indulge themselves into tropical oblivion.

The unexpected thrill of this island is the vast array of restaurants and bars. Seven restaurants offer exceptional island dining minus heavy, overly indulgent extras. The locations, of course, take best advantage of every gorgeous view on the island. For instance, Umami, lantern-lit and perched on stilts above the water, offers delicate Japanese dishes whilst Senses serves an eclectic fusion of Indian Ocean tastes in a relaxed and informal ambience. The six bars are havens where you can drop anchor to while away sunsets and star-filled evenings.

193 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.
