You don’t have to be in a city to enjoy breath-taking views from the rooftop — but since when can you say this about time spent in the Maldives?

Since now — every double-storey residence at LUX* North Malé Atoll is crowned with a magnificent private terrace, and these are the first of their kind in the Indian Ocean.

Perched on the beach or are stilted over the crystal-clear blue lagoon, the 67 villas flaunt attention-grabbing architecture with Sky Lounges perfectly poised for chilled sunset aperitifs, cinema screenings under sparkling constellations and hours of stargazing awaiting you from the seclusion of your own rooftop terrace.

Designed by Singaporean design house Miaja, these cool, contemporary villas, range from 351 sq m at the minimum to the largest three-room penthouse of 997 sq m.
