My family and I had the pleasure to visit LUX South Ari Atoll during Christmas and New Year and we enjoyed every second of our stay. It is a really wonderful resort with many options for eating and drinking. The food is outstanding; thank you Chef Pong and Chef Allan. The service level is extremely high. We went to the Lagoon Beach & Bar almost every day; thank you Achmed for taking so good care of us. The facilities are amazing with a beautiful Spa; thank you Sindy for all great treatments, extraordinary excursions; thank you Ammachu for giving us a whale shark experience out of this world and on top of this all great restaurants and bars; thank you all members of the staff for excellent service and a special thank you to Alauddin for the best drinks. It is Mr. Mamoun who is the resort manager and he has a never ending attention to his guests with great support from his PR manager, Mona Sedghi. Together they did everything to make our holidays to an unforgettable memory. We can’t wait until we will be able to check in again in a Romantic Pool Water Villa. Hopefully Nacer will take care of us; Thank you! Staffan HolmMore
An exquisite resort that is mesmerizing during the day and truly magical at night. The multiple restaurants, daily activities and excursions allow us to be as romantically private or rambunctiously public as we want, all at the height of luxury. Mohammed the manager, our concierge Inthi and all the staff here made our stay feel like home away from home. An unforgettable experience. Worthy note: incredibly safe and subtle Covid protocols in place and surprisingly amazing family-children amenities. More
This was our first time at LUX South Ari Atoll, and we're definitely going back soon again! My girlfriend and I have been to the Maldives four times previously, and this was by far our best experience. The resort is beautiful, the food is delicious, but what makes the hotel really stand out is it's personell. The staff are so kind, service minded and really went the extra mile to give us the best Maldivian experience. I would recommend to stay in a "Romantic Pool Water Villa", as these rooms are situated over the clearest water, just in the lagoon (We stayed in room 103, which felt more private as it's almost at the end of the dock). We stayed for 15 nights, but could have easily spent a life time there! I'd like to thank Resort Manager Mr. Mamoun for the warm welcome and for regularly checking in with us to see if there's were anything he could do to attend our needs. It was lovely to see a resort manager so attentive to its guests. We were lucky to have Mona Sedghi as our point of contact. She helped us with all of our bookings (restaurants, excursions, SPA, etc). She’s a PR Manager for the resort but she went out of her way to help us, always with a great smile and warmth. Thank you! A few honourable mentions, Arif, thank you for keeping the resort is such a good condition. Hard working and always in good spirits! You made us feel at home on the island. Very much appreciated! Alauddin and Mark at the East Bar, thank you for the best cocktails in the whole of Maldives. Alauddin has been on the island for over 15 years, and I hope he stays another 15! Really great! Chef Pong and Allan, for making the most delicious food. Your service is exceptional and to be greeted by you every morning was a blessing! Thank you! Thank you Sindy for taking care of us in the SPA. One of the most beautiful and well maintained SPA’s I’ve visited. Top notch! Ammachu, for taking us out on a whale shark excursion that was out of this world! Unbelievable! Thank you Achmed, Haam, Daminda, Pintu for taking so good care of us in the restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Five star service! To sum it up. One of the best resorts in the Maldives, if not THE BEST!More
We booked Lux South Ari Atoll based on their extensive list of activities and things to do. Having been to Taj Exotica and Grand Park Kodhipparu before we knew we were coming to a much larger resort but didnt realize how big. Thanks to Shawkat and Missy the buggy drivers. Sangeeth and Daminda in F&B. Mark at the East Bar and Ali in room service for making our trip great. If you go snorkelling from East Dive get Dhai to go with you. Ahmed the Marine Biologist who the hotel provides on their trips was fantastic in his knoweldge. Our take-aways - Rooms are big and gorgeous. We stayed in a Family Villa / Beach Villa and a Romantic Water Villa - Food is amazing wherever you go. Ample choices for vegetarian and non vegetarian. We loved the food at the Lagoon Bar and Veli Bar. - Distances are large and buggies take time. Cycles are provided, but if the family has members who cannot cycle, you could be waiting 15-30 minutes for a buggy to come. Walking after a point gets tiring - There are mosquitoes! Please carry repellent - Some staff need to learn better customer service. We had a very rude server in Mixe called Zahir who started fighting for no reason - For most activities we were told "No all reserved" and if this had been told to us in advance then it would have been better to make reservations for snorkeling or scuba or even Photo Fanatics. Prior information for complimentary services booking needs to be given and the teams need to be more accomodating - Reservations team on email needs to communicate better. We were a group of 10 traveling and despite us emailing and letting them know they put us in rooms all over the place which led to us changing rooms multiple times which is not convenient with young children and older family members - There is no snorkelling around the property so while the water is blue and calm and breathtaking, for sea life, you need to take excursions out which need to be booked in advance as initially we were told all booked - We did see a Whale Shark, Mantas and Turtles on our snorkelling excursions which were great - After complaining and getting Mr. Mamoun the GM involved then things seemed to smoothen out and the staff became more accomodatingMore
