About LUX* South Ari Atoll


Set on the tranquil island of Dhidhoofinolhu, LUX* South Ari Atoll offers one of Maldive’s most romantic resort destinations. With its location near Mamigili, you are close to the marine wildlife protected area where whale sharks can be spotted all year round. A 25-minute seaplane ride transports guests to the island, surrounded by some of the world’s finest diving sites. Guests can also choose from a numerous selection of exciting water sports, including kite surfing, which is available only on certain islands of the Maldives. LUX* South Ari Atoll is also among the first supporters of the FenMaaDhiguRan Conservation Project and allows guests to participate in voluntary activities that helps protect the country's diverse marine life. Each of the spacious guest villas are equipped with superior amenities ensuring a comfortable stay. The seven restaurants serve a variety of exquisite international cuisines, while there are six bars offering refreshing cocktails along with some Mediterranean snacks. With its romantic setting and one of a kind experience with marine wildlife, LUX* South Ari Atoll is a popular choice for couples traveling to the Maldives.
