LUX* North Male Atoll heralds a dazzling new dawn for luxury in the Maldives – a penthouse paradise, where every super-cool villa has a pool with a view.
The ubiquitous thatched-roof water villas of old have been replaced by contemporary white- washed penthouses. There are hints of jet-set chic reflected in your sunglasses, wide-windowed villas tinged with hot pink accents. Each and every penthouse is elevated by a spacious roof top deck, where the expanse of azure ocean only stretches your freedom to dream.
LUX* Overwater Retreat
Some villas are perched atop stilts, lapped by the turquoise waters of the lagoon, while others peek out from the luxuriant foliage that fringes the pure white beach. The villas are unique, the lifestyle fresh – and our legendary LUX* service lets you take your pleasure principles to a whole new level.
LUX* Beach Retreat
Ideal for families and friends, the LUX* Beach Retreat allows guests to live out their desert island fantasy. Built on three storeys on a private sugar-sand beach, the design-centric, 3-bedroom villa is tastefully-decorated and opens onto a large terrace bordering an infinity pool and gazebo – perfect for dinner outdoors or a beach barbecue. The rooftop overlooking the Indian Ocean is a place to enjoy cocktails at sunset, practice yoga at sunrise, have a barbecue or a candlelit dinner, or watch your favourite movies under the night sky.
Worldly Culinary Escapades
Enjoy endless wining and dining at Glow with its intimate ambience and creative take on world flavours.
Or taste the wonders of INTI with take a delicious trip through Peru via Japan courtesy of chefs who masterfully balance the two distinct cultures and cuisines.
To savour a distinct sense of place, book a barbecue dinner for your private rooftop terrace. This works especially well when teamed with our exclusive collection of Scrucap wines — excellent South African whites, reds and bubbly made especially for us, combining quality and value.
And of course, there’s an ICI ice-cream parlour, where original just-whipped-up recipes await with waffle cones made in front of you.
Another perk, as ever, is the special island-blend coffee by Café LUX* where every cup is created from ethically sourced, house-roasted best-in-class beans.
Dive Deeper – Day or Night
There’s nothing quite like the sense of weightlessness wonder as you dive deeper into the perfect azure waters of the Maldives – a dazzlingly different, spectacularly colourful world of underwater life.
The Maldives is an otherworldly place where land, sea and sky come together like nowhere else – and the artistic and cultural heritage of the atolls reflects this unique perspective.
An excursion to Gaafaru island is an opportunity to imbibe yourself with the rich history and living colour of Maldivian culture and heritage.
