LUX* North Male Atoll unveils first-of-its-kind LUX* Retreats

Published

on

LUX* North Male Atoll has unveiled its LUX* Retreats, a first-of-its-kind villa category in Maldives offering private luxury living.

The scale of the LUX* Beach Retreat and the LUX* Overwater Retreat villas is extraordinary: built on three stories, the penthouse-style villas built with design top of mind, present nearly 1,000 square metres of play area, and offer an experience of luxury that is unparalleled in the Maldives.

 

This unique configuration of the LUX* Retreats, which can accommodate up to eight guests, appeals to families and friends travelling together. The extremely private villas — with their 24-hour butler service, in-villa spa treatments, unlimited laundry service and a fitness area, sauna and hammam — present the ideal spot for a celebration or a gathering. What sets these retreats apart is their immense rooftop overlooking a private infinity pool below.

Residents of the LUX* Overwater Retreat (997 sqm, including 389 sqm of indoor open space living) can even dock their yacht at their villa, whilst guests staying in the LUX* Beach Retreat can enjoy their own stretch of beach.

The tastefully-decorated villas open onto an expanse of terrace bordering a large infinity pool and gazebo, ideal for a dinner outdoors. The jewel in the crown is the rooftop, which provides ample space for yoga, barbecues, movie screenings, intimate, candlelit dinners with a shisha, cocktails at sunset and spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.

“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,” John Rogers, General Manager of LUX* North Male’ Atoll.

The pioneering LUX* Resorts & Hotels team brings travellers its second property in the Maldives, on the island of Olhahali, a six-hectare island fringed by a house reef steps off the beach. LUX* North Male Atoll is a short transfer from Male by speedboat or a 15-minute flight by seaplane.

LUX* North Male Atoll is an intimate resort offering a visual feast of nautical forms and tones. It is a next-level 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. Harnessing the fresh vision of Singapore design house Miaja, each of the 67 double storey residences and rooftop features a private pool blending superyacht panache with a vibrant South Beach pulse with four elegant eateries and two bars.

For the first time in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with a magnificent private rooftop relaxing area. There’s a wealth of ways to relax or raise your game, and the invitations to adventure are endless. Guests will 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. A uniquely exclusive paradise retreat — where breezy island living meets jet-set chic — LUX* North Male Atoll is luxury beyond boundaries.

The three-bedroom LUX* Retreats are subject to availability. Please contact stay@luxnorthmale.com for further info, offers and bookings.

Prime Surf Season in Maldives: Niyama Welcomes Back Surf Pro Brad Gerlach and Surf Photographer Junior Gracia

Published

on

At Niyama Private Islands Maldives, surfing is a way of life. And with peak surf season fast approaching, two renowned surfies – Wave-Ki founder and instructor Brad Gerlach and whiz-behind-the-lens Junior Garcia – are set to take up residence.

Niyama Private Islands Maldives is the ultimate surf destination. Guests can jet in with their boards or get fully outfitted at the Rip Curl boutique, set up camp in one the specially outfitted surf villas, then hit the waves – including Vodi, a powerful and sometimes hollow wave that breaks right on shore. Afterwards, chill time awaits at the Surf Shack with rum and reggae, or at Drift Spa with a recovery back massage and sunburn-soothing aloe vera wrap.

In residence 10 March – 20 April to offer his revolutionary method of coaching is Brad Gerlach, the world’s #2 in 1991 after dominating the leader board for the majority of the year. He is the founder of Wave-Ki, a land-based method to perfect surf skills favoured by pros like Parker Coffin, with a martial art-like focus on slow, precise movements which create kinaesthetic motor memory for improved surfing once in the water.

There to capture guests mid-wave will be photographer Junior Garcia, at the resort 8 March 8 – September 30. Originally from Brazil, and now based in Bali, Junior has spent his life chasing the ultimate wave and the ultimate shot.

“The return of Brad and Junior to Niyama is epically exciting,” says Nathan Kemp, Surf Development Director at the resort. “Their unrivalled talents, combined with the perfect surf conditions and absolutely incomparable backdrop that is the Maldives, guarantees an unforgettable experience for all who will be staying with us during this time”.

While surfing in the Maldives can be enjoyed year-round, peak season runs from March to November. Brad can be booked for private or family coaching, first on land (USD 249) then in the water (USD 447). There will also be regular group land sessions (USD 74). Packages include a year’s access to Wave-Ki online, with video lessons, live sessions and Q&As, plus the option of one-on-one virtual coaching. Sessions with Junior begin at USD 249 per hour, or USD 489 for a week.
