27 May, 2023
From yoga to unique extraordinary experiences, this renowned resort in the Maldives – LUX* South Ari Atoll knows how to turn a couple’s getaway, a family vacation, or a solo retreat into a life-changing adventure.
Stop and enjoy the breeze
Landing in the secluded tropics amidst the Indian Ocean is a perfect opportunity to slow down. Take a deep breath. Sink the toes in the warm white sand. Enjoy a bike ride along LUX* South Ari Atoll’s 1.8 kilometres long island with lush gardens. Look up to watch the sun streaming through the palm leaves. Guests can sip signature cocktails during the sunset Aperitivo hour, as the sky turns rosé. The starry Maldivian nights are the best for indulging in dinners on the beach or open-air movies at the Cinema Paradiso.
Detox all the way
Away from the noise and stress of city life, this is a well-deserved “me” time. Switch off the phone and switch on the detox mode. Guests can start the day with an invigorating yoga class or an energising workout at the island’s well-equipped fitness centre. Visit the LUX* ME Spa for personalised wellness advice and be pampered with a massage, facial, or salon treatment. De-stress at the tennis court before taking a dip in the ocean. For ultimate zen with a Maldivian twist, couples can book a private yoga and sound healing Extraordinary Experience – onboard a dhoni traditional wooden boat amidst the waves at the Golden Hour. With self-care opportunities at every step of the holiday, LUX* South Ari Atoll is the ideal place to let go and recharge.
Mind what you eat
Eight restaurants and five bars of LUX* South Ari Atoll are where guests learn that food can also be a meaningful journey. Discover the variety of cuisines and flavours. Wake up to a healthy breakfast served fresh at the table or on a floating tray in your private pool. LUX* signature Keen On Green cuisine features plant-based and vegan specials in every restaurant, while ICI parlour serves homemade guilt-free ice cream right on the beach. Guests who wish to take a deep dive into culinary knowledge can book a wine-tasting or a bubbly and oysters pairing class and even a private Maldivian cooking class with the resort’s Master Chef.
Reconnect with each other

Morning boat trips gather ocean lovers for exciting snorkelling and whale shark discovery outings. Wellness group classes are for those looking to get fit together.

Appreciate the Nature

Coral planting classes invite everyone to engage in protecting coral reefs. Junk Art Studio is the place where trash turns into treasure during the weekly craft classes.
