LUX* North Male. Visit & Photos
A Dreamy Retreat in a Penthouse Villa
Unique to the Maldives, each penthouse has a beautiful private rooftop terrace with exceptional views of the lagoon.
LUX* North Male. The Island
Located at a 15 minutes flight by seaplane or 60 minutes by speedboat from Male International Airport, LUX * North Male is set on a medium-sized island surrounded by a huge blue lagoon so you will not find much to go snorkeling nearby.
The island is not very big, so you can walk from one end to the other. Restaurants and Bars, SPA, water sports and diving center are all within easy reach.
The view on arrival at the resort followed by the warm welcome of the butler until the discovery of the Penthouse is all impeccable.
Note that if you wish to have your transfer by seaplane, you will arrive later than by boat. You will spend much more time doing so. You will have to go to the domestic airport 9 located close to the international hub – by road only ) and then wait for the boarding which can be long sometimes.
