FRESH INDIAN OCEAN IMAGINATION

“Next level” is the best way to describe LUX* North Male Atoll, opening February 1, 2019. This new   resort presents a disruption to the Maldivian mould with over-sized, penthouse residences, which demonstrate fresh forward-thinking design for the Indian Ocean. By blending super-yacht  panache with a South Beach pulse, these standalone stays upstage the traditional thatched villa vibe. Discerning travellers seeking a smooth transition to holiday mode, have enriching adventures ahead, along with pure peace and pampering so they can reset, recharge and recalibrate — uninterrupted. A short transfer from Male by luxury speedboat or scenic seaplane, as remote as this desert -island resort may feel, it is easily accessible, yet far from any other islands.
