Lux Resorts & Hotels has unveiled a series of upgrades being undertaken at its luxury resort in the Maldives.
The Lux South Ari Atoll will reopen on 1 September 2016 following a “complete refurbishment”. On the island’s east side there will be 49 pool villas, including 46 with seven-metre pools and three with 14-metre pools. These three larger units will form the resort’s adults-only area, and also come equipped with twin showers and private terraces that feature “couples’ love nests”.
Two kilometres to the west, there will be 38 water villas and a two-bedroom Lux Villa, which will complement the resort’s 105 beach villas, 12 of which feature private pools.
The resort’s seven restaurants and five bars are all undergoing a major upgrade. Highlights will include beachside Italian, Indian/Arabic and international outlets, dedicated sushi, teppanyaki and robatayaki counters, and the largest selection of sakes and Japanese whiskies in the Maldives.
Lux will also bring its beach club concept to the island, which was first seen at its flagship Lux Belle Mare in Mauritius. The new Beach Rouge will serve seafood and wine, among other items.
The resort’s spa is also being renovated to incorporate a traditional Chinese teahouse, a new area for skin and body care and an extended lagoon-view relaxation area.
And finally, Lux South Ari Atoll will introduce a series of “expert-led workshops” that allow guests to learn a range of skills such as painting, photography and meditation.
“The brand vision is to offer our guests different luxury hospitality experience; helping people celebrate life, by making each moment matter. I have no doubt Lux South Ari Atoll will become a real spot in the Maldives, with its fresh and exciting new look and its incredibly passionate team, getting ready to welcome guests. We have a winning combination” shares Paul Jones, CEO of Lux Resorts & Hotels.
