The Most Anticipated Luxury Hotel Openings of 2019

15th January 2019 // By Lauren Hill

LUX* North Male Atoll, Maldives
February 2019

The resort brand known for light-and-bright design-led properties in spectacularly beautiful locations, LUX* focuses on helping people celebrate each moment. The latest property to join the collection, LUX* North Male Atoll is the brand’s second hotel in the Maldives. This one will stand out for replacing the classic Maldivian thatched-beach-villa aesthetic with penthouse-style overwater residences, each featuring a private Sky-Lounge, with nautical forms and tones. This bold style will flow throughout the resort, from its dining venues — Glow Restaurant, which serves world cuisine, Peruvian and Japanese restaurant INTI, bespoke dining spot Barium, feet-in-the-sand Beach Rouge, and Café LUX* — to its two swimming pools and translucent overwater LUX* ME Spa. There is of course plenty to do: embark on a private yacht voyage, play tennis and beach volleyball, and join a variety of expert-led workshops.
