Maldives, Saturday 22 November 2014.
After being awarded the Indian Ocean Leading All-Inclusive Resort at Maldives Travel Awards 2013, LUX* Maldives has scored again with yet another valuable award recognizing the significant efforts of the past year by gaining the title of Leading Family Award at the 2014 Maldives Travel Awards.
Since December 2011, LUX* Maldives has worked tirelessly to be recognized as a leading resort in the Maldives and last night’s award ceremony held in Male firmly confirmed this achievement. The resort has been officially awarded for its ongoing innovation, high standards of guest service, understanding of family needs, unique concepts and a true belief in the motto of ‘helping people to celebrate life’. PLAY is the large and well equipped resort kids club for children below the age of 12 providing a daily program of activities including treasure hunts, yoga, pizza making and cake decorating. Teens enjoy a sophisticated program called STUDIO 17 including team sports, teen only excursions, guitar lessons and can even learn how to be a DJ for their own party. The 5 star PADI dive centre and well equipped water sports centre warmly welcomes families of all age groups providing a wide range of experiences in, on and under the water! At LUX* Maldives kids are sure to never be bored and with 7 restaurants everyone is sure to find something they like.
After winning against some of the long established beach resorts of the Maldives, LUX* Maldives General Manager Shaun Dunhofen said “We are immensely proud to receive this wonderful award in this year’s Maldives Travel Awards. The Maldives has become a very popular destination for family holidays and our large beach front, wide selection of resort facilities and experiences, coupled with passionate team members, ensures our guests enjoy the best beach holiday possible”.
Guests at LUX* Maldives are treated to unique experiences such as Café LUX* freshly ground coffee, hand roasted on the island. ScruCap, a special selection of South African wines, produced only for LUX* Resorts & Hotels. ICI, freshly made ice creams and sorbets in a kaleidoscope of delicious flavours, plus the simple fun of ‘Phone Home’, a retro British red telephone box with free calls anywhere in the world! Being one of the larger resorts in the Maldives, guests are provided with a great choice of dining options and activities, a rejuvenating LUX* ME Spa, water sports and dive centre plus regular snorkelling trips by traditional dhoni, to spot magnificent whale sharks, manta rays and endangered turtles that inhabit the warm waters of South Ari Atoll.
As the Festive Season draws closer, LUX* Maldives is looking forward to celebrating this special time with its guests. The island experiences will showcase treasure hunts, beach games, interactive pop-up dining in true LUX* Style. The arrival of Santa is always highly anticipated, arriving last year by FLYBOARD, it’s an exciting time for the younger LUX* guests. The New Year’s Eve party will bring about lavish decorations, fairy lights, live cooking stations and pop-up bars with a colourful Carnival theme showcasing celebrations from around the world. With impromptu cinema screenings on the beach, mother and daughter LUX* ME Spa packages and an onsite Marine Biologist, LUX* Maldives presents a constant variety of activities that never fail to delight – both above and below the waterline!
