Lux Resorts & Hotels has unveiled its latest Maldivian opening, Lux North Male Atoll, which includes 67 contemporary whitewashed double-storey penthouses and a vibrant South Beach aesthetic.
Set back from the resort, the translucent overwater Lux Me Spa features a menu where the healing power of touch, water therapy, and breath-work come into play.
The Lux Me Spa includes five overwater spa treatment villas, one overwater beauty salon with a hairdresser, a common relaxation area, Lux Me Spa boutique, sauna, fitness centre, rooftop yoga, a spa for children and yoga classes for children.
The signature wellness experience, Celebration of Life, has been inspired by the graceful dolphins that populate the waters of the Maldives. It begins with techniques for conscious breathing to soothe the nervous system, followed by a flow yoga or aqua stretch session.
Aqua stretch sessions use the buoyancy of water to allow limbs and muscles to move in ways that aren’t usually achievable, easing stiffness and tension. Combined with a Shiatsu-style pressure point massage, the treatment aims to realign the body, and is concluded with an aromatherapy scalp or grounding foot massage.
The resort has been styled by Singaporean design house Miaja, which took inspiration from the curves, lines and finish of a luxury yacht.
“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,” said Dominik Ruhl, COO of The Lux Collective.
