The Island

An island paradise resort where you can experience the Maldives to its fullest Whether seeking a peaceful hideaway or active adventure, the picture-perfect island of Dhidhoofinolhu is home to LUX* South Ari Atoll, a luxury resort where your fantasy of a laid-back, desert island paradise is about to come true. Here, you’ll discover 193 private villas, dotted at the water’s edge along two miles of powder fine beaches and perched on stilts above a crystal lagoon. On land or above water, sunset facing or sunrise, these super spacious rooms and suites bring an entirely original vibe of coastal, beach house chic to the Maldives. With a 5-Star PADI dive centre, the resort’s limpid waters are a diver’s nirvana but there’s an equal abundance of snorkelling and opportunities to visit the resident whale sharks.

110 square meters of pure romance? That sounds about right. Our water villa comes with a pool (as if the Indian Ocean wasn't enough already), a deck for lazing in the sun, a hanging bird's nest swing, a flight of steps to the lagoon, and all the imaginable comforts. Did someone say drop-down projector in bed?


Couples, say hello to our three Temptation Pool Water Villa designed just for you. Slip into your robes and make the most of your days (and nights) in the Maldives. The hardest decision you'll have to make is 14-meter private infinity pool, jacuzzi, or infinite lagoon? Good thing you can have it all.


A beach bungalow. The prettiest private pool. Amenities perfectly attuned to the traveler looking to unwind.The dreamiest indoor-outdoor bathroom there could be. Welcome to your home in the Maldives.


As hoteliers with a love for travel, we know how important a good night's sleep is. Feeling like you have a home away from home is the best feeling. Our Water Villa is that home, but on stilts (and with the Indian Ocean as your swimming pool!)


Make our Family Lagoon Pavilion your tropical home on the beach. As a matter of fact, you can't be closer to the beach even if you tried. That makes it a good choice for families with a tribe of little travellers in tow who want nothing more than to build sandcastles or explore the island. This villa is one unit with one entrance leading to two separate entrances, perfect for families with kids or teens who want some privacy as well.


Picture this: Living in a chic thatched-roof bungalow on the prettiest beach imaginable. Chilling in your bathtub in a tropical indoor-outdoor bathroom. Reading a book on your terrace facing the ocean. Sounds like heaven to us!


You can't be closer to the beach even if you tried. Our thatched-roof beach pavilion is as chic as can be. There's the possibility of having interconnected rooms, making this a suitable fit for families with little travellers in tow or friends who like to go on double-dates.
