It’s one of the largest islands in the Maldives and consists of 193 private villas situated at the water’s edge along two miles of beach.

You will check into your Romantic Pool Water Villa and submerge yourself into the cool waters of your private infinity pool overlooking the ocean to shake off those travel cobwebs.

If you’re looking for more than an idyllic spot to sip a cocktail and watch the sunset, then you won't be disappointed as LUX* South Ari Atoll has a wealth of activities on offer. The resort’s dive centre provides full training and PADI certification for all levels, the water sports centre will have you snorkelling around remote sandbanks or trying a number of thrilling water sports, including kite surfing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, flyboarding and hoverboarding. If you’d like to rest your sea legs for a day, then head to the tennis or volleyball court, or do yoga on the beach.

If it’s an easy-going pamper session you’re after, then head to the spa and unwind with a range of different treatment options, including Chinese medicine treatments, a range of Shirley Page massages, Balinese massages, facials and more.
