The prefect place to stay in Maldives

Posted Jan 17, 2017
Our experience at LUX was beyond incredible! I would recommend this location to everyone. The most prominent feature about this place is the hotel staff. Everybody was so nice and friendly; they were always willing to help and always greeted you with huge smiles! If you go here, I would definitely recommend getting the all-inclusive packag, especially if you plan on taking advantage of the bars. For example, buffet cost is: $70/person plus beverages. And the cheapest bottle of wine is $45. So it's an easy $180 for only one meal. But the restaurants can add up to be more expensive. So all-inclusive is the way to go.

Great island, nice accommodations, friendly staff

Posted Dec 15, 2016
It's a stunning island which is well maintained by the staff. The staff is very friendly. And a big thank you to Ali who took care of our villa. He did a fabulous job. The hotel offers lots of activities. We had a few rainy days but we never felt bored. The food has a big variety and is always fresh and tasty. There are a few restaurants on the island which are all worth to visit. The hotel staff hides daily 20 messages in a bottle. We found one nearly every day which was fun. In total we had a memorable stay at the Lux and I would always recommend it. If we go back we would stay in a water villa instead of a beach villa. This would be the icing on the cake. Thanks Lux team!!!

Amazing beaches, crystal clear water, amazing food (worth the all inclusive upgrade), upgraded from beach villa to romantic water villa, private infiniti pool, great friendly staff, amazing coffee, so many little details--they've thought of everything! Truly paradise!

Once-you-go-Lux*-you-aint-going-back hotel!

Posted Dec 13, 2016 on Hotels
Lux* certainly lived up to its name. Luxurious, Oh Yeah!! Lets start from the beginning; as you drag your tired feet with your heavy bags through the airport, you will be greeted by a smiling Lux* rep waiting for you at the booth in the airport. Their smile took away a little bit of your tiredness away. Thts the last time you will see ur luggage, till u get to ur room. :) you will be waiting at Lux* lounge waiting for the seaplane. With complimentary coffee, pastries, macaroons n tidbits. You felt that your holiday has begun. Reaching Lux* after a quick 20mins seaplane ride, you will be greeted by Lux* amazing n cheerful staff and manager. This is where your holiday really start! Check in was so quick you feel lost as you will be surrounded by beautiful reception area facing the clear waters of Indian ocean. We stayed in the water villa ( A MUST) . I kid you not, we saw baby black tip shark, baby manta, fishes that look like nemo swimming outside our room. (I tried swimming with them, but they swam away)The 6 days stay in Lux* was incredible. Everyday, they have activities planned for us. Some are complimentary! Snorkelling and diving there was one of the best we had. Crystal clear waters and fantastic reefs. Paddle boats, jet skis, hover boarding. Just a few to name. Food could be a tat better. 5 star, definitely, wide variety, but a little pricey. Bfast spread could be better too. Our enormous villa is kept clean always. Already miss Lux*. So what r u guys waiting for!!!

Remarkable quality all around! The most surprising part was extremely fresh and delicious food and very friendly and professional staff. Hope the hotel management realizes that they are a big asset and takes a good care of them. Dive shop had very lean and efficient operation and relaxed attitude, letting more experienced divers go without a guide. The room is very clean and comfortable. All in all very positive experience. We will be planning a trip back next year!

Lovely Holiday

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Pros: There is so much to do and can never be bored.
Cons: Can not fault this place just wish the rain stayed away longer.
Location: The scenery is just breath taking.
We went for my husband's birthday and had an amazing time. The staff where so friendly and did a 5* job with the house keeping. The food was exceptional and that's coming from two chefs but it did cost a bit more than we thought. Over all we had the time of our lives and looking forward to going back.

A relaxed slice of heaven

Posted Oct 16, 2016
Pros: The clear blue water that stretched into the horizon, the white soft sand and the warm, friendly staff made us fall in love with the place
My wife and our baby stayed here for a week to celebrate our wedding anniversary. LUX gives an amazing boutique luxury experience, we had high expectations and we were not disappointed!

My Dream Destination

Posted Oct 7, 2016
Pros: Our beach front room was amazing and we were close to the reception and just a little stroll to the pool.
Cons: Water is free in your room and at drink stations on the path but not offered at meals as complementary.
Location: Many locations for beautiful scuba diving adventures. Snorkeling with the Whale Sharks was a trip highlight!!!!!
The hotel was beautiful and the island was paradise. Stunning views while flying in the seaplane to our resort! Staff greeted us on arrival at the dock and helped us with an easy check in. They showed us to our room and made our stay relaxing and always checking to see if we had everything we needed.
