Lux* Resorts & Hotels has unveiled its latest Maldivian opening, Lux* North Male Atoll. A short speedboat transfer from Male airport, the resort sets itself apart, with 67 contemporary whitewashed double-storey penthouses replacing the thatched-roof water villas that have become definitive of Maldivian luxury.

The vibrant South Beach aesthetic has been elegantly styled by Singaporean design house Miaja, who specialise in designing unique properties to reflect the beauty and charm of their surroundings.

Inspired by the curves, lines and the impeccable finish of a luxury yacht, it has taken years to perfect LUX* North Male Atoll on Olhahali, a six-hectare island fringed by white sandy beaches.

Dominik Ruhl, chief operating officer of The Lux Collective, said: “We are so excited to be opening a truly different resort which dares to get away from what we call the ‘sea of sameness’ with a thoroughly original approach to a luxury Maldivian holiday.

“This is part of our intention to create an exceptional Maldivian experience for those wanting uncompromising personal service and first-class facilities as well as unexpected touches and a light-hearted atmosphere.”

For the first time in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with a magnificent private Sky-Lounge. These high-life stages stretch playful imagination to their limits, enabling inspired indoor-outdoor living and a unique perspective on the planet’s flattest country.

Opportunities for drinking and dining range from the openly elegant to the intimately luxurious. Glow Restaurant is an international meeting-point of creative world cuisine, INTI guides you on a delicious journey through Peru and Japan, the height of truly bespoke taste is hidden in the opulent chamber of Barium, whilst Beach Rouge provides a feet-in-the-sand, sea breezy scenario to take you from day to night. Add our famous Café LUX* and the sophisticated speak-easy charm of the Glow Bar – and the flavours of island life just got fresher.

There’s a wealth of ways to relax – or raise your game, and the invitations to adventure are endless. You’ll find two swimming pools, a translucent overwater LUX* Me Spa, world-renowned diving, high adrenaline water sports, private yacht voyages, tennis and beach volleyball courts – or unwind in dedicated beauty spots for tai chi and yoga. We also invite you to join us at inspirational classes and expert-led workshops, with a forward-thinking kids club completing the offering.
