The hotel and Island were just perfect! The people working there lovely and the area beautiful! The beach was beautiful! One big advantage with this island is that it is bug enough to have a walk or jogging and several restaurant on it! We were there last January for our honeymoon and looking forward being back soon!

We spent 2 fabulous weeks. The staff was super friendly, our son enjoyed so much the kids club and everybody was so nice to him! The food was super, especially Allegria and the super Chef Jonathan! We were sad to leave, but we are already happy planning when we will come back!

Myself, my spouse and two our boys enjoy travelling and of all places we have been, we would love to go back to Lux resort. What stands out is the friendly and relaxed attitude of the staff. They made... More

As all the reviews before have stated, The Lux is wonderful, I have only been here two days thus far but I cannot wait to sing its praise. When booking our holiday we were not sure whether to return to The Andaman in Langkawi or Six Senses in Oman, we are so glad that we finally decided on The Lux.... More

We booked LUX* Maldives as a special holiday before our two boys (17 and 18yrs old) leave home and so we were looking for an island with plenty to do and good diving. LUX* fulfilled our wishes and more! From the moment we arrived at Male, we were so well taken care of... luggage booked onto the sea plane flight,... More

The food in each of the 7 restaurants was absolutely amazing, and after 3 years of living in Singapore we have very high standards!!!! We... More

Dear Amanda, We are really glad that you have had such a wonderful family holiday on the island and at the same time enjoyed some quality time for yourselves. As Singapore is only a four-hour flight to the Maldives, there are many more opportunities for you to return in the future. We look forward to welcome you home to LUX*... More

We just spent a week at the resort and were very impressed. I have stayed in a number of places at the Maldives, but Lux had a couple of differences. Firstly, there are plenty of activites at the resort, beyond diving. There is a watersports centre with windsurfs, jet skis, stand up paddle boards etc as well as other activites... More
