Above and beyond
My stay was the most spectacular, Food, Scenery, Cleanliness, Hospitality, and staff were well above and beyond. From the dock greeting with warm welcomes and best wishes, EVERY SINGLE PERSON on staff made me feel at home as well as VIP. I wish I could give an 8-star review but 5 is the limit. Great amenities or if you just want a lazy day it works out great as well, I think I found a new happy place.

My wife and I needed a well deserved holiday and Lux South Ari Atoll did not disappoint. From the time we arrived until the moment we left it felt like paradise. The weather was perfect even though we went off season. The staff was gracious, courteous and helpful. The food at each establishment was good; some better than others depending on your preference. Our villa was amazing. It was a birthday and wedding anniversary week and they completely were attentive to each occasion. I left with no regrets.

The whole property was stunning! Food was amazing and high quality. Babysitting/daycare was the best part of the resort. They were able to take care of my child while my husband and I were about to relax and enjoy the beaches. The staff there went above and beyond. I just wished I stayed longer! Will def be back.
