LUX* South Ari Atoll dedicates Oct to breast cancer awareness
In light of the World Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October, LUX* South Ari Atoll Resort & Villas is doing its part in raising awareness of what affects hundreds of thousands of women every year.
All donations given by guests to the resort’s Tree of Wishes during the month of October will be handed over to the Cancer Society of Maldives, a non-profit, non-governmental organisation formed by individuals for the purpose of reducing the incidence and impact of cancer in the Maldives.
The Cancer Society of Maldives engages in activities such as increasing general awareness, establishing early cancer detection methods through cancer screening camps, promoting healthy living through educational programs as well as conducting training programmes for healthcare workers, and providing psychosocial support to cancer patients, survivors, their families and more.
Additionally, throughout October, all team members at the resort will wear the pink ribbon on their uniforms, an international symbol of breast cancer awareness and support for those affected.
“With health and wellness comes difficult conversations as well. By contributing locally to the awareness, support and research of what affects so many people worldwide daily, is the least we can do from our end,” Sindy Lagare, Director of Spa and Wellness at LUX* South Ari Atoll, said.
LUX* South Ari Atoll is one of two resorts in Maldives run by Mauritius-based LUX* Resorts.
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.
