LUX* South Ari Atoll offers a true experience of luxury. Perfect for couples and families, you’ll enjoy the beautiful surroundings of soft white sand and transparent water at a fantastic price. You could spend all day just lounging on the sand, enjoy the relaxation you deserve. But if you grow restless, LUX* has plenty of activities to offer you too. Go deep sea fishing or scuba diving, if you’re feeling active. Alternatively there’s a spa if you’d just like to be pampered.

The LUX* has a huge array of dining options, ensuring you’ll never get bored with the food on offer. These include wood-fired pizzas, Indian Ocean delicacies and delicious sushi depending on where you go. Unlike many luxury resorts, the LUX* South Ari Atoll caters very well for families with children. The PLAY kids club offers supervised fun for children, and the Studio 17 is for teenagers.

Top Tip: For an island resort there is a very broad range of restaurants available. The Japanese restaurant Umami is especially good, but requires booking in advance.
