LUX* ISLAND RESORTS

The island of Dhidhoofinolhu is one of the biggest in the Maldives, only a short 25 minutes seaplane flight away from the capital Male, and featuring four kilometres of silvery white beaches stretching out to the sparkling turquoise waters of the natural lagoon. The clear waters of the ocean are home to an infinite variety of species, multi-coloured coral fishes and other marine fauna. Here on the island, LUX* Island Resorts has opened a Marine Biology Centre, dedicated to research the presence and conservation of whale sharks in the South Ari Atoll waters. Inland, the island is a haven of lush, green foliage and vividly coloured flowers. The world class PADI diving centre and full a range of water-sport activities are an attractions for many, but for those who prefer rest to recreation there is the luxurious LUX* Me spa, two swimming pools and an extensive choice of restaurants and bars.
