LUX* North Male Atoll unveils enormous over-water retreat villas, which the brand believes are the first of its kind in the Maldives. The three-story villas are in line with the property’s urban chic aesthetic and has nearly 1000 square metres of play area. They are definitely for large families and groups of friends with room in each for eight guests.

These villas feature a huge terrace bordering a large infinity pool and a gazebo, perfect for outdoor dining. The rooftop, which the resort describes as the ‘jewel in the crown’, is a multi-purpose area for yoga, BBQs, movie nights, candle-lit dinners with shisha, sunset cocktails and stunning ocean views. 

“We are delighted to unveil the LUX* Retreats. It’s a room category of its own. We are happy to be able to offer a new take on luxury from the carefully designed spaces and architecture to the overall service and surprises offered to guests by our lovely team members, each and everyone going out of their way to ensure the unique LUX* experience. The LUX* Retreats are truly incomparable to anything you’ve previously seen in the Maldives and they mark yet another milestone on our mission to disrupt the Maldivian mould” says John Rogers, general manager of LUX* North Male Atoll. 

LUX* is known for their innovative approach to hospitality and each of their properties in the Maldives delivers a casual, quirky, laid-back luxury that’s a hit with travellers.
