LUX* North Male Atoll will open on 1 February 2019, offering a superlative Maldives experience with all the trimmings – literally luxury beyond boundaries
This brand new resort created by innovative luxury hotel and resort brand LUX* takes comfort to a whole new level. Gone are the traditional thatched villas we’ve come to expect at a luxury Maldivian resort, and in their place are 67 contemporary whitewashed double storey penthouse villas, each with its own private swimming pool. Each superb residence is topped with a magnificent private rooftop sky deck, offering inspired, slick, glamorous indoor-outdoor living and a unique perspective from which to enjoy the surrounding azure sea.
Penthouse villas are either set on the beach or stilted over the crystal blue lagoon. They feature it all – hammocks, sun beds, swings and spots to dine – offering a private retreat where one can relax at leisure, suspended between the sand or the sea as well as the sky above. This is luxury at another level entirely.
Island life at LUX* North Male Atoll is a very special, relaxed, pampering experience. Dining options include everything from elegant to intimate, with creative international cuisine on the menu at GLOW Restaurant, delicate flavours and stunning seafood at Japanese/Peruvian-inspired INTI and the height of bespoke gourmet dining at Barium, an opulent hidden chamber with personal butlers and tailor-made menus. Beach Rouge offers a feet-in-the-sand scenario with dishes to match the relaxed atmosphere, and there’s also Café LUX* for coffee as well as the sophisticated Glow Bar for refreshing drinks with endless views. Let’s not forget the signature homemade ICI ice cream parlour, making the flavours of island life much fresher.
Guests are invited to do as much – or as little – as they feel like on any given day, with a choice of unmatched activities and facilities. There are two swimming pools, the state-of-the-art overwater LUX* Me Spa, world class PADI diving opportunities at the diving centre, high adrenaline water sports, exclusive voyages on the resort’s private yacht, tennis and beach volleyball courts, and, for those who enjoy relaxing at every given moment, Hatha Yoga and Tai Chi. The resort also offers other inspirational workshops and classes led by experts plus a fun kids club for those who bring the family.
This truly exclusive paradise retreat wouldn’t be LUX* without a few surprises. You can expect classic film screenings at the resort’s cinema paradiso, local art classes
and the chance to hang your hopes on a magical tree of wishes. The private island paradise is a short 15-minute seaplane transfer from Male, making it easily accessible too. The resort is now officially open for reservations to experience the next level of LUX*.
