LUX* South Ari Atoll, South Ari Atoll, Maldives

A prime dive site on its doorstep, almost three miles of uninterrupted beach and a brilliantly-spontaneous atmosphere: LUX* South Ari Atoll is an Indian Ocean must-stay.

​With a fresh approach to 21st-century holidaying, spontaneous fun and treats at every turn, LUX* South Ari Atoll unites great design with a raft of leisure, wining and dining facilities that won't fail to delight.

Here, your tastebuds will be treated to everything from North African, Indian and Lebanese fusion at Senses, to Japanese Teppenyaki at Umami or vibrant Italian at Allegria.

​Head out on the water to seek Whale Sharks (the area is a hotspot for them); or stroll through the tropical pathways and discover hidden treasures along the way... an ice-cream cart here, a fresh coconut stall over there; a secret bar concealed by palm trees – there one day, gone the next.

Watch out for impromptu movie screenings on the beach; a pop-up musical extravaganza; and a whole host of other surprises – all popping up when you least expect it.
