LUX* Resorts launches tailored family adventures in Maldives
LUX* Resorts & Hotels has launched a new Little LUX* Life programme for guests aged 6-14 and their parents, spanning the brand’s Indian Ocean properties, including LUX* North Male Atoll and LUX* South Ari Atoll in Maldives.
The fun-filled programmes, operated through the PLAY kids club and STUDIO 17 teen club, will offer a range of unique and educational activities for children and teenagers alike, with experiences tailored to the creative spirit, the dare devil, the natural inquisitor and the rising sports star.
A Little Creative at LUX* North Male Atoll
At LUX* Resorts’ newest property, LUX* North Male Atoll in the Maldives, families will stay in the newly opened LUX* Beach Retreat, complete with 24-hour butler service, immense rooftop, infinity pool and private stretch of beach.
The five-night A Little Creative programme includes an art class for families at STUDIO 17 or a family photography workshop around the island with the snap-happy experts at the resort’s Photo Fanatics studio to learn how to capture the glistening hues of blue ocean and the sandy white beaches.
Subsequent days will see children immerse themselves in creative activities like coconut boat making classes whilst older children and teens can take part in a DJ spinning classes with local musicians. Families can wind down at the end of the day with an under the stars cinema experience on the roof of their very own villa.
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.
To book: A Little Creative at LUX* North Malé Atoll starts from £10,415 per night for a family of six, including stay in the LUX* Beach Retreat on half board basis, an art class or family photography workshop and a family cinema under the stars experience. PLAY Kids Club and STUDIO 17 activities complimentary.
A Little Adventurous at LUX* South Ari Atoll
The five-night A Little Adventurous package at LUX* South Ari Atoll will offer daring children and their families the chance to explore a kaleidoscopic Maldivian water world, including an introduction to diving lesson in the open water for older children; or lagoon snorkelling for those still learning to swim.
The experience will also take families on a whale shark safari to spot the magnificent creatures up close.
Back at the resort, families will enjoy a Master Chef cooking class, before returning to their Family Lagoon Pavilion, set directly on the beach with two bedrooms interconnected with separate entrances and terraces, offering privacy to parents and children alike.
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.
To book: A Little Adventurous at LUX* South Ari Atoll starts from £5,340 per night for a family of four, including stay in a Family Lagoon Pavilion on half board basis, one diving lesson, a whale shark discovery safari and family cooking class.
