Introducing an entirely new level in stand-out luxury, this is the Maldives… elevated.
February 1st 2019, we’ll unveil LUX* North Male Atoll – an era-shaping resort that sweeps away the thatched-roofed Maldivian footprint of old with a dazzling paradise of penthouse villas and spectacularly designed spaces to play, relax and retreat.
A short transfer from Male by luxury speedboat, this intimate resort is a visual feast of nautical forms and tones. Harnessing the fresh vision of Singapore design house Miaja, each of the 67 double storey residences features a private pool blending super yacht panache with a vibrant South Beach pulse.
For the first time in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with a magnificent private Sky-Lounge. These high-life stages stretch playful imagination to their limits, enabling inspired indoor-outdoor living and a unique perspective on the planet’s flattest country.
Opportunities for drinking and dining range from the openly elegant to the intimately luxurious. Glow Restaurant is an international meeting-point of creative world cuisine, INTI guides you on a delicious journey through Peru and Japan, the height of truly bespoke taste is hidden in the opulent chamber of Barium, whilst Beach Rouge provides a feet-in-the-sand, sea breezy scenario to take you from day to night. Add our famous Café LUX* and the sophisticated speak-easy charm of the Glow Bar – and the flavours of island life just got fresher.
There’s a wealth of ways to relax – or raise your game, and the invitations to adventure are endless. You’ll find two swimming pools, a translucent overwater LUX* ME Spa, world-renowned diving, high adrenaline water sports, private yacht voyages, tennis and beach volleyball courts – or unwind in dedicated beauty spots for tai chi and yoga. We also invite you to join us at inspirational classes and expert-led workshops, with a forward-thinking kids club completing the offering.
