Introducing an entirely new level in stand-out luxury, this is the Maldives… elevated.

On February 1st 2019, LUX* opened it's doors to the most LUXURIOUS RESORT EVER in the Maldives - an era-shaping resort that sweeps away the thatched-roofed Maldivian footprint of old with a dazzling paradise of penthouse villas and spectacularly designed spaces to play, relax and retreat.


A short transfer from Male by luxury speedboat, this intimate resort is a visual feast of nautical forms and tones. Harnessing the fresh vision of Singapore design house Miaja, each of the 67 double storey residences features a private pool blending superyachtpanache with a vibrant South Beach pulse. For the first time in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with a magnificent private Sky-Lounge. These high-life stages stretch playful imagination to their limits, enabling inspired indoor-outdoor living and a unique perspective on the planet’s flattest country.


The Maldives elevated

Blow away the island footprints of old and step up for the Maldives reimagined with a sky-deck above your luxury, architect-designed penthouse. As you kick-back high above, the island is a breezier, bluer place - with rooftop views that stretch to the horizon, and possibilities for relaxation that go further than ever before.

Adorned with hammocks, sun-beds, swings and spots to dine - this is your personal space for play, suspended between sand or sea and the sky above - affording opportunities for new experiences, limited only by your imagination. Roof-top revelers will savour sundowner cocktails but hanging out with perfect drinks is only the beginning. Think backyard barbecues with a roof-top twist or let us transform your night time sky- deck to the most secret of outdoor private cinemas with your choice of celluloid stars.

Stretch body and soul with sunrise yoga and tai chi, sooth yourself with a moon-lit spa treatment elevated by nature’s soundtrack of lapping waves - or invite friends up for a LUX* Master Chef dinner party. In this penthouse paradise every day is dazzlingly different from the Maldives that’s gone before. You have the perfect people, the perfect place - it’s time to pop open a bottle and raise a toast to sky-high adventures.

Penthouse paradise

LUX* North Male Atoll heralds a dazzling new dawn for luxury in the Maldives - a penthouse paradise, where every super-cool villa has a pool with a view. The ubiquitous thatched-roof water villas of old have been replaced by contemporary white- washed penthouses. There are hints of jet-set chic reflected in your sunglasses, wide-windowed villas tinged with hot pink accents and Jacuzzis that bubble to sunset vistas. Each and every penthouse is elevated by a spacious roof top deck, where the expanse of azure ocean only stretches your freedom to dream.

Some villas are perched atop stilts, lapped by the turquoise waters of the lagoon, while others peek out from the luxuriant foliage that fringes the pure white beach. The villas are unique, the lifestyle fresh - and our legendary LUX* service lets you take your pleasure principles to a whole new level.


Each stunning accommodation ensures you’re the star of a unique island-life story that has no parallels. Each airy expensive room opens onto another, affording a sense of space and openness. The details are striking, and the overall feel is indoor-outdoor living of slick, sleek glamour. Take to the decking or step up to the rooftop - every angle of relaxation covered and ready for a picture perfect photo opportunity with you, your loved ones and the beautiful nature of the Maldives beyond.

Each villa has a spacious, private pool boasting idyllic views across the soothing waters of the reef, while the 120 square metre rooftop terrace is your very own penthouse paradise for sun bathed lounging and sensory star gazing. The sense of living beyond boundaries extends to the romance of the tropical outdoor shower, while the strikingly spacious bathroom features twin vanities and a centrepiece free-standing bathtub. Featuring advanced interior technology - from touch mood-lighting to SONOS sound and streaming inside and out - each Water Villa seamlessly blends contemporary playfulness with the ever- changing ambience of the Indian Ocean.

From plane to penthouse

Whilst the undoubted attraction of a visit to The Maldives is its isolation from the rest of the world, one of the draw-backs is the lengthy time it takes to arrive in paradise. After your international flight touches down, LUX* North Male Atoll is just a short luxury speedboat journey away - meaning no frustrating waits for connecting domestic flights or onward seaplane transfers. LUX* North Male Atoll affords the opportunity to make more of your time away with plane to penthouse check-in just 15 minutes away.



With a relaxed Mediterranean elegance, drop the pace for a long, relaxed lunch, or turn on the style for a romantic dinner at the water’s edge. Laze in the shade for brunch - with long drinks and longer shadows - and a day-to-night menu that invites sharing.

A holiday without ice cream? Not on our watch! Our guests deserve the very best, so we created our very own ice cream brand, ICI. There’s a stunning ice cream stall at every resort and hotel, and because it’s fat free it’s a treat you can enjoy without feeling guilty.

Excellent coffee is at the heart of every day - always a must, never a luxury. That’s why you’ll find a Café LUX* at the centre of the action at LUX* North Male Atoll.
