The resort also promises pure peace and pampering for its guests so that they can reset, recharge and recalibrate uninterrupted on this heavenly island.

The resort will be home to 67 double-storey residences each featuring a private pool.

Speaking about the inauguration of LUX* North Malé Atoll, Dominik Ruhl, Chief Operating Officer of The Lux Collective said, “We are so excited to be opening a truly different resort which dares to get away from what we call the ‘sea of sameness’ with a thoroughly original approach to a luxury Maldivian holiday.
