LUX* North Male Atoll appoints seasoned hotelier John Rogers as General Manager
LUX* North Male Atoll, the second LUX* resort operating in the Maldives, has appointed seasoned hotelier John Rogers as the General Manager of the brand new resort opening in February 2019.
Drawing on more than 30 years of experience managing award-winning destination properties around the world, British-born John brings an impressive background in pre-opening, planning as well as luxury resort operations to LUX* Hotels & Resorts.
John has held roles as General Manager at several award-winning luxury resorts, including eight years at La Residencia in Mallorca. Most recently, John oversaw all operations as General Manager at the Carlisle Bay resort in Antigua and Barbuda.
John’s wealth of knowledge in five-star resort hospitality is set to ensure the continued success of LUX* Hotels & Resorts and its dedicated commitment to ensure fresh, creative and exceptional experiences in different locales around the world, with LUX* North Male Atoll next out to make its gracious entrance in the promise of a Lighter, Brighter and extraordinary stay.
“I am thrilled to have joined LUX* North Male Atoll, as the resort will be introducing an entirely new level in stand-out luxury with spectacularly designed spaces to play, relax and retreat,” John was quoted in a statement, as saying.
“For the first time in the Maldives, each penthouse villa is crowned with a private Sky Lounge for all guests to overlook the unique location, just a short journey from Male. Leading up to the opening on February 1, 2019, we have been carefully planning all details to perfection, building great teams and sharing the vision of making each moment matter for our soon-to-arrive guests in a lighter, brighter way. We can’t wait to share this with you all.”
LUX* North Male Atoll, the second resort in the Maldives by Mauritius based hotel group LUX* Hotels & Resorts, will officially open on February 1, 2019.
Accessible by luxury speedboat or a short 15 minute seaplane transfer from Velana International Airport, this intimate resort is ripe with eye-catching architecture and ocean-inspired interiors. Each of the 67 double storey residences features a private pool, and for the first time in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with a magnificent private rooftop terrace. Whether set on the beach or stilted over the crystal blue lagoon, every penthouse villa takes indoor-outdoor living to a new level of breezy sophistication, with the largest three bedroom penthouse retreat covering 970sqm in total.
Opportunities for dining range from the openly elegant to the intimately luxurious. GLOW Restaurant and Bar is a meeting point of creative world cuisine. INTI guides you on a delicious journey through Peru and Japan and the height of truly bespoke taste is hidden in the opulent chamber of Barium, while Beach Rouge provides a feet-in-the-sand, sea breezy scenario to take you from day to night. Add the famous Café LUX* and signature homemade ICI ice cream parlour, and the flavours of island life just got fresher.
Guests are invited to indulge further on the island, with two swimming pools, a translucent overwater LUX* Me Spa, a world-class PADI diving centre, high adrenaline water sports with the option for cave diving, ship wreck diving and the ultimate luxury experience with private yacht voyages.
LUX* North Male Atoll is truly an exclusive paradise retreat, and LUX* wouldn’t be LUX* without a few surprises. Expect classic screenings at cinema paradiso, local art classes, expert led workshops and the chance to hang your hopes on a magical tree of wishes.
