A luxury resort in the Maldives made for peaceful off-the-grid retreats
Dreamy atolls of tropical islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are a kaleidoscope of colours and earthly pleasures. Get away from it all at LUX* Maldives, the only settlement on the postcard-perfect island of Dhidhoofinolhu.
Fuss free and laid-back, the resort surprises with pop-up film shows right on the beach, impromptu musical performances and strolls along secret pathways through the lush tropical gardens. Just steps from the thatch-roofed suites and ocean-perched villas, the island’s unspoilt beaches are yours to claim.
A prime spot for snorkelling and whale-shark spotting, the resort’s unblemished lagoon is a diver’s dreamworld. Back on land, island street food and fine dining await in the tempting restaurants and bars. In the shade of coconut palms, lounge by the two turquoise pools, luxuriate in the ocean-view spa and surrender to the charms of this castaway idyll.

A VERY BIG FISH
PREPARE TO WITNESS MARINE LIFE AT ITS MOST MESMERISING
The southern tip of the South Ari atoll is known globally as a
hotspot for whale sharks and, in particular, their annual migration
to warmer waters. If you'd like to see the world's largest fish in
its natural habitat, we've got a real treat for you. Our whale
shark day trip begins with a presentation on this beguiling
species, followed by the main attraction: a snorkeling trip.
Stopping for lunch on a nearby island, the locals will reveal how
they used to hunt whale sharks… Ending a remarkable day, a photo ID
session will bring to life the stories of individual whale sharks.
