LUX* South Ari Atoll to host personal growth workshop with best-selling author Amber Rae

LUX* South Ari Atoll in Maldives has partnered with New York’s best-selling author Amber Rae to host workshops on emotional wellness and personal growth.

As part of the Expert-Led Workshop series conducted by LUX* Resorts & Hotels, Amber will host two separate workshops on May 21 and 23; one customised for couples and the second focused on personal growth.

Workshop 1, May 21, 2019: Love & Wonder — Living Your Best Life as a Couple

Join couple Amber Rae and Farhad Attaie, otherwise known as Mr. and Mrs. Wonder, as they guide you through a journey to unlock more love, meaning, and depth in your relationship. This workshop combines relatable stories with research-backed and personally-tested techniques for celebrating the good stuff, navigating the hard stuff, and creating your best life as a couple. Develop your communication skills, conflict navigation, shared meaning, couple vision mapping and take your relationship to a deeper, and more meaningful place.

Workshop 2 – May 23, 2019: Choose Wonder Over Worry — Move Beyond Fear & Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential

How do we tap into our creativity and unlock our true potential? How do we move beyond the worry, fear, and doubt that stifles our potential? Learn how to use the power of wonder to access more meaning, ease, and joy in your life. Together, we will break through the myths that hold us back and learn how to tap into the three Cs — Courage, Curiosity and Compassion — to propel our growth. Blending soulful conversation with research-based insights, you’ll leave with tools to navigate tricky emotions, build confidence in the unknown, and express your gifts.

Called a “real-life Wonder Woman”, Amber is a New York-based best-selling author, illustrator, entrepreneur and speaker who encourages emotional wellness and personal growth.

Blending raw, personal storytelling with visual exercises and actionable aha! moments, Bustle called Amber’s best-selling book, Choose Wonder Over Worry: Move Beyond Fear and Doubt to Unlock Your Full Potential, “the one advice book you should read even if you don’t like self-help.” Her illustrations turn complex ideas about the human experiences into bite-size wisdom, and reach more than 1.2 million people per week. Her public art has spread to more than 20 countries, and she has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, NY Mag, Forbes, TODAY, Inc., SELF, Fast Company and Entrepreneur. Fortune called her “a Millennial Motivator” and Mind Body Green called her “The Brené Brown of Wonder.”

Amber speaks frequently about unlocking our true potential, and has collaborated with organisations such as Kate Spade, TED, Ogilvy and WPP. Previously, she started a publishing company with Seth Godin and Amazon, and created marketing campaigns for brands like Apple and Dove.

LUX* South Ari Atoll offers a generous day package for guests wishing to visit the resort for a full day’s programme, including Amber’s workshop, access to all resort facilities, lunch and spa treatments (30 minutes of Body Scrub and 90 minutes of signature spa treatments).

Cutting-edge designer villas and world-class dining can be found only a 30-minute seaplane flight away from the main Velana International Airport, making LUX* South Ari Atoll one of the most exciting resorts in the Maldives.

With 193 private villas dotted at the water’s edge along four kilometres of powder fine beach or perched on stilts above a crystal clear lagoon, these spacious pavilions and villas bring an entirely original vibe of coastal, beach house chic to the Maldives.

Excellent eating and drinking is always a cut above the rest at LUX*, and at LUX* South Ari Atoll, there is authentic South East Asian street food in the Maldives’ only over-the-water gourmet night market and world-class Chinese cuisine at East, along with the Japanese restaurant Umami, which offers live teppanyaki and dazzling selection of sakés.

While the resort has a PADI-certified dive centre, two infinity pools, a floodlit tennis court, a fitness centre and a renowned spa which hosts a wellness concierge and a menu of indulgent treatments, what sets the property apart from its neighbours are surprises, or better known as #ReasonstogoLUX. Designed to create lasting memories for guests, these ‘reasons’ can range from island-roasted coffee in Café LUX* to impromptu movie screenings at cinema paradise and the chance to hang your wishes on the Tree of Wishes.

The Day Package is available for USD 550 per adult or teen, with a 50 per cent discount for children aged 6-11 years. To book please contact,
