The Nitty Gritty

  • Accommodation:
    67 penthouse style villas with private pools and sky-lounges, the ubiquitous thatched-roof water villas of old have been replaced by contemporary white-washed penthouses. Some villas are perched atop stilts, lapped by the turquoise waters of the lagoon, while others peek out from the beautiful greenery that fringes the pure white beach. There are 15 one-bedroom beach villas, 46 overwater villas, four two-bedroom beach residences, one LUX Beach retreat 3-bedroom villa, and one overwater 3-bedroom villa with a dock for your yacht.

    The resort is located on the beaches of the North Male Atoll, 56km from Velana International Airport.
  • Getting there:
    The resort can be reached by either a 60-minute speedboat ride or a 15-minute seaplane transfer from Velana International Airport
  • What to pack:
    Think island chic - we recommend plenty of swimwear and light clothing suitable for the humidity.

Wellness guru Shirley Page has teamed up with LUX* to create a range of treatments to purify body and spirit and their therapists tailor bespoke restorative programs that integrate hallmarks of contemporary wellbeing.

    Ocean activities: Take a catamaran cruise by the lagoon, experience cave diving or take advantage of the locale and go surfing the stunning turquoise waves. If you prefer staying on land, we love the sandbank picnics, ideal for couples or families or spend time at the rooftop cinema paradiso where you can watch a movie beneath the stars.

The Weather

The Maldives are a year-round destination with a near constant temperature of 86°F (30°C). The water temperature remains steady, never falling below 77°F (25°C) and reaching 84°F (29°C) during high season. However, the islands are tropical and therefore also subject to two distinct seasons, or monsoons. April is a transitional time between these two seasons and is known for the clear water, which is appealing to divers. The iruvai (northeast monsoon) is hot and dry and runs from December to April, making this the official high season when the islands enjoy little rain and low humidity. Rain is more likely from May to November (during hulghangu, or southwest monsoon), making this the official low season.
