Perfect Getaway

Scenery, Peaceful, Friendly
5 stars***** experience overall!!! Definitely will go back again. [Waiting Lounge] upon arrival, we were being greeted by friendly Lux* staff who assisted us with our luggages to proceed to check in at Trans Maldivian Airline (Seaplane). We arrived Male at 11am and our seaplane ride departing at 1.30pm, hence we were being seated at their very comfortable VIP Lounge. [Seaplane Ride] i was 24th weeks pregnant during the trip, take off and landing were smooth, seaplane cabin was hot but bearable as only 30 mins from Male Airport-Lux* Maldives, noise is tolerable too. [Reception] we were assigned to a private receptionist who see thru our check in. hassle free. [Room] we stayed at beach pavilion with direct beach access. [Beach] clean with ample space of privacy [Travelling Around The Island] you can go by foot around the island, rent a bicycle or just hit a free buggy ride around the island. [Food & Beverages] food quality was good with varieties that satisfied Asian & Western [Water Sports/Activities] they have various kind of water activities and shore activities such as night movie screening by the beach, DJ sunset, volleyball.

A Dive Trip

Excellent Housekeeping, great Breakfast and Nice diving sites
Very friendly staff, excellent rooms' housekeeping with direct beach access, excellent food variety for breakfast compared to other hotels, dive sites nearby with great visibility, the late checkout and seaplane timing was verygood too. The Arabic Resort Manager and Dive Manger and staff were helpful and keen to help, all the staff were keen to assist. The coffee and Ice cream quality were high. Excellent idea for the drinking water (glass bottles). Towels were so clean without smells, room hygiene was outstanding. The only thing needed is to increase the Wifi coverage and strengthen it in the restaurants, but good coverage in rooms and reception area. Dive sites with great visibility (3Meters) and near. Dive boat is quite big for relaxation and staff are quite assistants. I suggest to provide Dive professional photography like other resort. The seaplanes were good and smooth trips (arrival and departure).

Stay longer.

Very accomodating staff, excellent service, great food.
Overall, our stay at LUX Maldives was delightful! The staff were very accomodating, the resort had plenty of activities lined up for the guests, and the food was great. The rooms were spacious and clean with comfortable beds and couches. The only regret my husband and I had with our stay at LUX Maldives was that we should have stayed longer!
