Good value for first timer

Quiet, relax and beautiful sandy beaches
7.3
Generally, it is a good, value resort island for first timer honeymoon. However, the shortcoming are the following:- (a) Where we are staying on a water villa for the first 2 nights the sea water below the villa generally is clear. However, last 2 nights the sea water below the villa fill with some seaweed which makes us uncomfortable for us the swimming. (b) Wifi connection - generally within the villa itself will show connections however it is not stable and weak. (c) bell boy - on one occasion, we are on a club car drove by bell boy when we are calling him for direction he just ignore us and continue to talk to another of his bell boy friend. When I call him again on a angry voice then only he turn around and answering to us. (d) Water Sport Centre - we make reservation for some sport activities, confirmed and the next day when we walk over to the centre to do the said activities then only we were inform of the weather condition not availing the activities. We felt that they should have tell us of the cancellation due to bad weather instead of letting us to go to the centre then only being inform of the same. We felt the staff over the centre not welcoming and not friendly.

Nice and relaxing

Friendly staffs, prompt service and clean resort
8
We stayed 3 nights from 8th February with my wife. The staffs were very attentive, always with a smile and willing to help. Food is mostly international, half board (breakfast and dinner , no drinks included 117usd/pax), full board ( all meals and all drinks listed on menu 170usd/pax), unless you drink alot of alcohol eg. wine, i would suggest to go half board. As we calculated you will pay lesser than 170USd/ pax if you don't drink a lot of alcohol. We stayed at water villa but a little pricey thou. free yoga session in the morning and also kayaking is complimentary.

Paradise on earth

Amenities, activities, scenery
8
Great range of activities and amenities but also plenty of locations to relax and unwind without being surrounded by other guests. Super friendly staff are always willing to help and the food & wine selection was very diverse. A wonderful place to spend a week!
Hotel Feature Tip: Go for the water villa - you won't regret it! It's like having your own private jetty extending from your living area. Incredible.

Great location ruined by weak/cheap hotel approach

large and beautiful Maldives Island
5.7
a place with great potential but hotel experience ruined by super push marketing approach to consumers and package commercial policy. lots of package customers, groups of charters "invading" the resort during chinese new year, with loud and annoying behavior, spoiling the romantic ambiance of maldives. everything totally overpriced, average service with strong focus on selling. past great experience at lux mauritius, but poor attention to customer in maldives, no luxury feel at all. no attention to details. great snorkeling team in sport club, but unprofessional kite surf teacher, with poor teaching skills. large number of restaurants, offering good food and different menu alternatives.

Lux Luxury in Paradise

good quality accommodation, nothing too much trouble, larger island, good diving
9.7
the lux maldives resort is a larger island, and due to this gives you more choice than some of the others we have stayed on. everything is of high quality in the resort and nothing is too much trouble for the staff, who coped admirably with my husbands constant requests for things not on the menu! service really is top notch here and i can highly recommend the teppanyaki at umami (you have to pay extra for this if on a meal plan) and the italian restaurant allegria. senses, the asian fusion restaurant is also very good. the extra daily touches in the resort - the hidden bottle, ice cream service at the pool, hidden bar etc are nice little extra touches. the spa is also very good and i can recommend the energising massage. diving is excellent and was a highlight of the trip, dirk and the crew in the dive centre are very professional and courteous and diving with the whale sharks that can be found all year round in the ari atoll was a highlight of our trip. we have been to the maldives 8 or 9 times now, mostly to different resorts, and have only found one other resort (soneva fushi) that we would (and have) returned to, but we would definitely return to lux maldives agains.
Travel tip: note that if you like snorkelling on the house reef you need to take a 5-10 min boat ride, but it is free!

The seat arrangements in the Italian restaurants

Beautiful scenery
8
The seatings for the Italian restaurants were unfairly distributed. The tables in the hallway with good lightings were all given to the whites. Even though others may have arrived earlier, they were not given the seats in the hallway. Please overlook this matter. This action could be considered as racism in some countries.

The Water Villas are best

Big resort
6.7
We stayed in the prestige water villas first and then transferred for the last 4 nights to the water villas. Wish we had stayed in the water villas all along as they are cheaper, but the same size room and terrace as the prestige villas, but they have the best reef, swimming and the cleanest water. No sea weed here. Shame we did not know and wasted our money on the prestige villa. The resort is big, rooms are well maintained and clean and the local staff really look after you. Downside is that you have to book everything, restaurants were booked up for days, so no evening meal except buffet. The free trip to the house reef was booked out a day in advance. The resort should do better, especially at the price they charge.

Nice Hotel but could be better

Good facilities, clean rooms, manta ray feeding
7.3
This is a big resort and getting around can be an issue. Stayed at the Prestige Water Villas and this was a mistake. Although very clean and well equipped, half the villa space is the large bathroom. These prestige water villas are all at the far end of the resort away from the reception, water-sports & diving centre. So you either have a 30 minute walk or have to find a buggy to get there, and there are not enough buggies to take people. The food is good and there is plenty of it, but you pay a price as this is an expensive resort. You have to book your table at the a la carte restaurants quickly, some restaurants had no reservations available for 4 days. The pizza place closes if it rains, and also closes early, so you go for a pizza and find it closing at 5.10pm when it is supposed to be open to 6pm. That means limited in-villa dining is often the only option. The manta ray feeding and shark feeding are good events to see and you get to see this up close as the feeding is done right in front of you. The beaches have a sea weed problem which washes on the beach constantly.
Hotel Feature Tip: Avoid the prestige water villa and take the water villa (they are the same, except for the bathroom and better located.
