Overview

LUX* South Ari Atoll is a luxury Maldives resort in an idyllic island setting. This private paradise combines five-star service and blissful seclusion for a truly relaxing escape.

Books and films have made being stranded on a deserted island seem like a rather trying experience. But once you visit LUX* South Ari Atoll, getting stuck in paradise won't seem like a bad idea at all.

Whether it's a secluded beach suite surrounded by lush vegetation, or a villa on stilts suspended over the crystalline blue waters of the Indian Ocean, LUX* South Ari Atoll' 193 rooms suit every taste. And speaking of taste, prepare to enjoy cuisine from Japan to the Middle East at any one of LUX* South Ari Atoll' five restaurants.

And what would a private island paradise be without beaches? Lounge in the white sand, swim, windsurf, jet ski, or experience some of the world's most magnificent diving sights, including the area's magnificent whale sharks. Even the landlubbers can enjoy the sea life - with the resort's daily stingray feeding off the jetty.

With a spa, kid's club, postcard-worthy pools, and regular buggy service around the island, Robinson Crusoe you are not. Thank heavens.

Wonderful Experience

The hotel was excellent, I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience during my stay.
The staff were very friendly and their facilities were great, for food lovers this is a good hotel as they have a good amount of restaurants and varieties (just book the restaurant you want to go to way ahead of your arrival, as they can easily be fully booked by the time you are there). Overall this hotel is great for both couples and families alike.

Very Nice

The hotel and the island are very nice. the service is great and the staff are very friendly. the only down side is that the trip was very hectic and the prices in the restaurants and bars are highly overpriced.

Definitely not a 5 star resort!

Our stay at Diva was disappointing for so many reasons:
1- the resort has a serious lack of buggys, although we don't mind walking, even when we called we had to wait for up to half an hour.
2-you have to ensure u prebook all your dinners, for us the resort was busy and we could not get into the main restaurants our first night,and the walk in buffets had a half hour wait.
3- we were ther to relax, however we were woken up to the sound of construction at 8:30/9:00 am.even when we were moved to a beautiful water villa, same thing "preventative maintenance" at 9am. Why this is done so early and when the resort is full is beyond me
4- the beach in front of our beachvilla was unswimmable, you had to be on the opposite side of the island to get the good beach.
5- finally although the staff was very friendly, they were often clueless, about our requests, sea plane requirements, and even basics like where the yoga classes were being held.
Redeeming factors, the Maldives are beautiful regardless, the staff is friendly, and the food at Allegria is good if u can get a table. It's the small things that they are not good at.
