December is drawing closer and you will soon be called to decide on where you would like to spend the last days of the year (and the first days of the next one). The option to spend your holidays at your homeland sounds tempting since it is budget-friendly and hustle free. But, haven’t you gotten bored of the same old stuff?

We urge you to make something different this time. Go to a place where you have never been before. Maybe, you could go to Paris, or somewhere slightly further. What about Maldives? Maldives is definitely the last country that you would think spending your Christmas.   Lux* South Ari Atoll decided to change our minds about Christmas and Maldives.

LUX* South Ari Atoll | Living the Extraordinary!

A place where you can celebrate life, a promise of different luxury, a sanctuary of relaxation and serenity – this is the concept behind LUX* South Ari Atoll. It’s an innovating hotel that has created lots of experiences on its premises aiming to bring the creative side of its visitors on the forth.

To celebrate the coming of the new year, LUX* South Ari Atoll has created a series of daily events taking place from 22nd of December to 7th of January. Let’s discover them!
