Still on holiday at this amazing resort. I dont know where to start. The staff are so lovely and friendly and cannot help you enough. We love the senses bar and all the guys there. The island bar is great and rafi makes the best cocktails ever. The rooms are good size and very practical. We are in a beach... More

It started with the welcome and ended with the goodbye. It lasted 7 days but felt as if we had never left. We had last visited Lux in April and only had seven days available in December. We decided to revisit. That was one of the best decisions we had made in 2014. Everyone deserves a mention but those who... More

I've said it before: I'm not an all-inclusive, chillax-on-the-beach-for-a-week kind of gal. LUX may have changed my mind. *May.* Let's not go too far. I rated it a 4/5 as compared with other luxury hotels in the same price range. The Good: *LUX has come up with quirky ways to make a beach resort feel less like a typical all-inclusive.... More

Fantastic food, drinks, water-sports centre, views, rooms but most of all service. We stayed in a beach villa. The nice thing about this room is its huge, has an outdoor bathroom (2 rain showers and a large bath built for 2!) and, in our case anyway, you will end up getting a small stretch of beach which ends up being...

We went to Lux for our honeymoon, we were very impressed with the food and service given by all the wonderful staff. I would suggest going for the all inclusive package as the meals are pricey otherwise and you are treated the same. Only advice I would give is tip the house keeping at the end of ur stay not...

We stated at Lux at the beginning of December and had an absolutely amazing time. We stayed in a Beach Pool Villa and an Prestige Water Villa, both of which were equally as good. This is our second trip to the Maldives and the beautiful setting will blow you away. The staff were very attentive and passionate about what they... More
