LUX* South Ari Atoll celebrates Aug reopening with online treasure hunt, half-rate offer



LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas in Maldives is gearing up for its reopening on August 1.

To celebrate this occasion, the resort has kicked off a month-long digital countdown treasure hunt on Facebook and Instagram.

During the month of July, LUX* South Ari Atoll will post daily images, videos and all the information you need prior to the reopening.

Each main feed post (no stories) will contain one or more hidden LUX* stars — as shown here in the first image — for you to keep count of.

By the end of the treasure hunt on July 31, you will be asked to send the resort a private message stating the total number of stars you found (excluding the first post) in the posts during July.

Among the correct answers, one lucky winner will be announced on reopening day — August 1 — via LUX* South Ari Atoll’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

The winner will receive a complimentary four-night stay including breakfast and domestic airport transfers.

“Happy Hunting! We are so excited to welcome you back to our paradise island for a relaxing and safe holiday,” an announcement read.–GtTsxR0BkcBQUvBDZ3gbES964uH5ejZTjkAQXOC1FEmHWAh4a1_QemTdM4X80LwLGeBEN0MzFSiCm4Q9anvfWKAsl2RwzCGNYbfXaZZ-2YTHMQHD-Cn2_T3nPPDktjDx0cnRwfqwhWUcppunSm-TEHJGZarOFM31X7Gcz3-PfWVZrJ31VOzGAh2d1lJL-SosYFLyR0wHaN_wZ9-0HuUkDNUA&__xts__%5B1%5D=68.ARBzUWpn4_xXMrLkFHGIjTXxtWNiYxwnof5CeZs0pVQYKDuaBrWw_bkVERoLGeCwSBiHqNxgy6bVPKkQbni8wxJyX8c5E_iV5UBpGcTTBLqc1z8PjTsb4QnNat5d3zE2xbb9EKL4FX0p1Ks22ZvO9nQjOiHqDUORpHrnaXEa-VXfZkcFd-JpRC1PPu4iLRduhB5qTysWAQ-GrWktxbNaiDQMvMqRYHgAxn24Np23o00mwIqaGL633U1d_H5fttDanaGvmfLUajz06FXKHIjlUbbiNUFqanbh79IJyKc3CjdjW2nEj0uFTIAsGrODYOcWFKNqX9SGe1BdaS–kpye5tcQqOD8y7yEikdCvjxw5LqZt6D770Oy0w7qRZHuNu8pX1igxTFT0I_6abnZPCJmm8H_pp9VA8XFslUr0LcuTJbB0hY&__tn__=-R

YOUNA, an emerging DJ/Producer specializing in melodic techno and progressive house, hails originally from South Korea.

Dedication to refining her craft led YOUNA to cultivate a distinctive sound, skilfully merging emotive melodies with the infectious energy of her compositions.

Despite embarking on her production and DJing journey in 2022, YOUNA has swiftly ascended to prominence on the global music scene. Her debut single, ‘Self-Doubt,’ ascended to the top 14 in progressive house and secured the 4th position on Beatport’s hype chart. YOUNA’s music, characterized by potent beats and evocative soundscapes, transcends cultural boundaries, dismantling barriers and creating a harmonious fusion on the international stage. Get ready to dance the night away and create memories that will last a lifetime with DJ YOUNA
