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

All inclusive package and stayed in 2 adjoining beach pavilions with interconnecting door on the lagoon side of the island. Fantastic service (rooms cleaned twice a... More

If you doubt there is a heaven, let me tell you, it is here at Lux Maldives. You are greeted at the seaplane jetty by a line of smiling, waving, white linen clad staff offering cold water and cool wet towels. I went with my teenage daughter who had been promised a diving holiday to end all others. Our 'prestige... More

Two weeks ago, my family and I went to the Maldives for the first time. It took us three months to decide on the right resort: great service, great beach, great room, great amenities, etc. After comparing a few resorts that were kids friendly (there were tons of resorts that didn't welcome kids) as we had two children of our...

This has been the best holiday of our lives. Everything was so well organised and friendly. When I asked what time it was in order to adjust for my watch for time zone difference, I was told it was not important. Food is excellent! Accommodation is excellent! Service is superior! You can stop thinking when you pick up your luggage... More
