LUX* North Malé Atoll Resort & Villas

Thatched roof-water villas – a typical Maldivian style – don a new avatar at the LUX* North Malé Atoll Resort & Villas where swanky, high-designed penthouses have found a space instead. Towering over pink-rimmed infinity pools, each space is designed in a manner which aims to show you a different side of the island nation, without skimping out on luxury.

Each villa comes coupled with a private rooftop, ideal for watching a movie under the stars, hosting a dinner party, or even saluting the sun with a rejuvenating session of yoga in the morning.

Keeping this tonality of luxury alive, one can even enjoy breakfast on a floating tray in the swimming pool here. Moreover, guests can even get personalised attention with their own Island host, the resort’s equivalent of a private butler.

When at LUX* North Malé Atoll Resort & Villas, there’s plenty of activities to immerse in. Whether you choose to go on a sea turtle quest, ride the waves while surfing, attend a talk by a marine biologist, go on jetski safaris, or simply relax and unwind at the signature LUX* Me spa, you’re sure to enjoy. If this wasn’t enough, though, the crowning jewel is a 38-foot catamaran. Guests can begin their day with an early breakfast on the sea, following by a midday picnic on the sandbank, and then toast to the setting sun with champagne, or enjoy a twilight dinner. Take note: the restaurant even offers delicious and decadent Peruvian delicacies at INTI – a cuisine often overlooked by hotels. After all, at LUX* North Malé Atoll, norms are meant to be broken.
