It has been almost an year since we visited Lux* Maldives, but it is still fresh in memories. Maldives is unbelievably beautiful and Lux made it even better. Service was excellent, the island is beautiful and we especially loved the end where you have sea on three sides. We had two kids with us, so unfortunately we couldn't explore everything... More

My wife, Sharmini and I selected LUX in December 2012 for our honeymoon destination. Going to the Maldives has been a dream of ours for a long time and i must say we were not disappointed in the least.

My husband and I stayed at LUX Maldives for one week and we had a great time. All the staff is very kind and helpful.

Thank you for your kind words on tripadvisor. Many guests enjoy the sun just a little too much in the first days and hence we have plenty of Aloe Vera at hand to assist. Or for even better relief our helpful Spa team will ensure the pain goes away, but the tan stays. We are delighted to know that you... More

I recently took some clients to the resort together with my partner. Our beach villa was stunning and not surprisingly right on the beach which was straight off a postcard.

Everything about this place was fantastic. The food was absolutely amazing, the cocktails were divine, the staff were ever so friendly & couldn't do enough for us. The island itself & the beach were stunning, great variety of restaurants, bars & things to do. The rooms were immaculate as was the whole place. Want to go back already!!.
