Whether you’re seeking a peaceful hideaway in the sun-kissed white sands, or an adventure amid azure waters, the picture-perfect LUX* South Ari Atoll in the Dhidhoofinolhu island of Maldives is your best bet. Here’s why. By Bayar Jain
If you’re looking for a fairy-tale vacation, then LUX* South Ari Atoll in Maldives excels at bringing your dreams to life. The moment you step onto the luxury resort’s premises, powder-soft white sands embrace you while the gushing sounds of the vast expanse of sapphire waters echo in your ears. Surrounded by Marine Protected Area waters – home to gentle white sharks and 50 diving sites – this islet personifies the spirit of the destination, a concept already familiar to the LUX* Resorts & Hotels brand.
Boasting of 193 private villas, eight restaurants, and five bars, this picturesque location has the ability of taking you around the globe at the drop of a hat. Think Japanese flavours at Umami, Mediterranean at Beach Rouge, Italian at Allegria, Middle Eastern at Senses, Asian at East Market, or even a melting pot of it all at MIXE. The deliciousness and authenticity of the flavours at each of these spaces is further heightened by sourcing ingredients from near and far, both. Guests with plant-based dietary preferences can even pick from a vegetarian menu at all their restaurants. Rest assured, their cosmopolitan ambience is guaranteed to satiate even the pickiest eaters.
However, a Maldivian vacation is incomplete without a dose of adrenaline. Aware of this, LUX* South Ari Atoll has a slew of water sports to offer. Water babies can choose from jet skis, paddle-boards, hoverboards, flyboards, wakeboards, waterskis, kneeboards, windsurfs, kite surfs, sailboats, banana boats, fishing, parasailing, or even catamaran outings. On the other hand, lovers of the land can jog around the 1.8 km-long island, practice yoga, play beach volleyball, tennis, or even sweat it out at their gym.
If this wasn’t enough, the property is also ideal for those seeking to reignite the spark with their loved ones. Whether its floating breakfasts in their swimming pools, midnight dips in the sea, sandbank dinners, or even saying your vows against the setting sun on the beach, leave it to the staff at LUX* South Ari Atoll to make it a memorable affair.
With so much to offer, the best way to make the most of your stay here is by availing their All Inclusive Offer. With this offer, one gets 30 per cent off at Umami, an impressive selection of 80 wines and 50 cocktails, a serve-yourself minibar, and an unlimited helping of ice-cream during afternoon tea. After all, with LUX* South Ari Atoll, happiness is best experienced when enjoyed at the fullest.
