LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas

Stepan Borovec

Chief Private Consultant
"This is one of the biggest high-end resorts in the Maldives, and offers good quality for a reasonable price, including an all-inclusive option. With no house reef, passionate divers may prefer elsewhere. Likewise, the complex houses up to 400 guests at full capacity, so an alternate resort might be better if ultimate seclusion is a must."

Stay at LUX* South Ari

Step into the paradise playground that is LUX South Ari Atoll. Strolling along warm, white sands, you surrender all worries, for the stresses of normality have no place here.Lush green foliage combines with the song of the ocean, creating a natural Maldivian melody that will be hard to forget. Doze to the idyllic pressure that comes with a massage at LUX Me Spa, before sharing a cool drink and sunset with that special someone.


Situated on the dreamy island of Dhidhoofinolhu, the resort can be reached by seaplane from Male in around 30 minutes. A picture-perfect oasis awaits you at LUX, and this will be clear from the moment you arrive.


A light and bright aesthetic graces each of the island’s 193 villas. Stays range from stilted water villas to beach pavilions with rustic thatched roofs. Opt for a cosy cabana, zen Jacuzzi or private infinity pool - each promises its own ultra-luxury experience.

Who is it for

This resort is great for couples. However, well-priced and spacious accommodation choices such as the family lagoon pavilions also makes it ideal for families.

Facilities & activities

A five-star PADI dive centre hopes to grant all snorkelling wishes. Floodlit courts allow you to enjoy a game of tennis whenever it suits. An unmatched selection of cuisine expects you at the resort’s eight restaurants and five bars, from sushi and teppanyaki to tasty street food at an original market-inspired venue.
