A slice of paradise in the Maldives, LUX South Ari Atoll envelopes guests in a warm embrace from the moment of arrival.

The Infinity Spa offers a welcome sanctuary and for the whole family, water sports invite days of endless pleasure. All accommodation is in traditional Maldivian style using indigenous materials.

RESTAURANTS & BARS

BEACH ROUGE
The LUX* brand’s dynamic beach-club, injecting the laid-back energy of a fashionable beach club to this private Maldivian island. Expect ceviche, carpaccio and grilled fish, washed down with rose and lazy afternoons danced away to chilled island beats.

UMAMI
It’s not just about the full flavours in a chic, contemporary setting, Umami is as dedicated to drama as it is to delicious dinners. Highlights include dedicated sushi, teppanyaki and robatayaki counters, accompanied by the largest selection of sakés and Japanese whiskies available in the Maldives.

ALLEGRIA
Italian restaurant Allegria will stimulate every palate. Quality Italian ingredients, and authentic southern European recipes, all created with expertise in an open kitchen, complemented by our Scrucap wines and an exceptional selection of Italian, French and New World labels too.

EAST BAR
A deck with swinging double seats and loungers-for-two on catamaran nets floating above turquoise waters – this hip little hangout is an atmospheric rendezvous. Sunset cocktail or low-key nightcap? Our above-the-water bar doesn’t just invite you to relax with exactly the chilled drink you wanted – we insist. Spend an evening socialising at this picturesque perch (we say ‘on the island twice), and we suggest you stray from the deck that overlooks our island and the ocean to find the biggest surprise that awaits… Seek out the secret under-the-sea-themed musical space where you may be tempted to take your drinks and start dancing. Can’t see it? Or hear it? All we’re saying is this: it might be where you least expect it…

EAST MARKET
Interactive stalls promise a gastronomic journey for all who wander through our South-East Asian local night market-inspired spaces. Breakfast and dinner on our over-the-water market is all about grazing from the half-a-dozen live cooking stations, surrounded by heart-stopping Indian Ocean views.
