LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas


Based on reviews.

Whether seeking a peaceful hideaway or active adventure, this picture-perfect resort fulfils every fantasy of a laidback desert island paradise. Villas are scattered along the powdery beach or perched on stilts above the lagoon and each enjoys a sophisticated sense of simplicity with splashes of bright colour. The island is a unique spot for whale shark watching year round and arguably, you'll find the largest choice of watersports in the Maldives along with a huge choice of land based activities, personalised spa treatments and numerous authentic dining venues.
