LUX*Maldives Review

An Island resort which should be very proud of their location, staff and facilities.

Having just spent a week at this incredible resort I feel privileged to have seen some of the most beautiful beaches, sea life and views on the planet.

The island resort has created a luxurious hotel that is nestled into its environment so sympathetically you’d hardly know it was there.  The pure beauty of the location can not be challenged, 4 km of white powdery sand with turquoise waters lapping gently at its edge, beaches so uncrowded that you could be lead to believe the island belonged to you.  Forget the feeling of having to place a towel on your sunbed at 7am or queuing for dinner at 7.30pm.  This wonderful resort has an abundance of high quality restaurants hidden within the natural beauty of the island, some buffet style others with outstanding table service.  All serving an incredibly high standard of food ranging from Italian, Japanese, Curry and other nightly specials.

The staff around the hotel could not have been more attentive, from the groundsmen and women who spend everyday making the hotel gardens look absolutely  beautiful, to the housekeepers who not only kept our rooms sand free they also left us a little surprise most nights.  Each night we would come in from dinner and find an amazing creation on our bed made from a towel, a turtle, an elephant, kissing swans and even a monkey.  The waiting staff were tremendous, every mealtime going that extra mile to make our evening special, a warm welcome with a friendly smile just seemed to come naturally.

Other perks of the resort were free snorkeling trips, free use of snorkeling equipment, kayaks, pedal boats and bicycles around the island.  For the more adventurous guests, activities included deep sea fishing, scuba diving, searching for the infamous Whale Shark, ride the jet skis and trying out the flyboarding, at an extra cost.  Again, nothing is too much trouble for the guys at the watersports centre.  A welcome change from other resorts I have been to.

All in all I would like to congratulate LUX*Maldives for creating a small corner of the world which gives you real rest and relaxation with views to die for and service you can only dream of.  Thanks for a great week guys!
