My husband, daughter and I booked a last minute trip to the Maldives, to a resort that I had looked at many time longingly, but that we hadn't managed to get to. Well it completely lived up to our expectations. All of the staff are superb, friendly and professional. To be fair there are too many to mention but I... More

We spent a long time researching the Maldives and we are extremely grateful to Angelfish Travel for all their advice and guidance in our booking. They spent a huge amount of time with us discussing the options and gave us first hand advice of the different islands through their own visits and relationships they have. When we arrived at Lux...

What can I write that hasn't already been written about Lux? As the fussiest person in the world to please, I can quite honestly say that this is the best holiday I have had to date, not only has Lux got the most breathtaking island in the South Atoll, I can say without a doubt that the service we encountered...

We have just returned from the Lux Maldives 14th April 2014. The islands are just superb I can’t see how anyone can dislike the Maldives or the Lux Resort. This place is run very professionally and the staff are really caring, everyone seems to enjoy their work and it shows. The management is very hands on talking to guests all... More

After so much research on maldives resorts, choosing Lux* Maldives is never a regret. On our arrival at the resort's jetty, we received warm welcome by the resort mgr, Mamoun, and Naid, the guest ambassador, who gave us detailed information of the resort. I enjoyed the tranquility of the island with white sandy beach and crystal clear sea. The sunrise... More

Right now it's 30 degrees, I am on the deck of our water villa looking at the whites of waves landing on the lagoon that surrounds us. This is day four or five ( I forget). So far I have been diving with Kirk and the PADI team here which has been very safe, very exciting and very friendly. I... More

Friendly and helpful staff, incredible, clean and spacious room, incredible food and variety of restaurants (the best part!), 2 pools, one more relaxing, adult, other more "resort feel" with loads of children, good variety of sports... can't fault the resort, truly! I would advise to go All Inclusive Package. As in all the Maldives, food and drinks is extremely expensive... More
