LUX* North Malé Atoll celebrated its first anniversary with the unveiling of the impeccably-designed Lagoon 40 catamaran that offers guests a chance to explore the pristine waters of Maldives beyond the atoll.



LNMA - LUX_ Overwater Retreat & Catamaran
Designed and produced in Bordeaux, France, the 11.74 m (38.5 ft) catamaran features three airconditioned cabins with king beds and ensuite bathrooms, a kitchenette as well as an indoor dining space. With wide windows and integrated portholes, inviting fresh sea breeze and natural sunlight, the catamaran also offers an unparalleled view of endless azure out on the sun deck with two sunbeds, an outdoor dining area and an overwater net. The catamaran can accommodate up to 15 guests for an excursion, whilst dining experiences and overnight cruises can accommodate four guests.
With a crew of minimum two skippers and a butler on board to personalise and curate every detail of the experience, the catamaran provides half or full day excursions. Explore untouched islands, enjoy picnics with champagne on private sandbanks, guided snorkelling expeditions in remote areas or anchor in some of the best spots to watch the sun set. Prices for a full-day excursion start from USD 6,000 for four persons.
“The catamaran is the perfect complement to the resort’s laid-back luxury. Offering the highest personalisation, the catamaran offers the picture-perfect setting for a romantic escapade, family adventures and friends’ get-together,” says John Rogers, General Manager of LUX* North Malé Atoll Resort & Villas.
Guests staying at the three-bedroom LUX* Overwater Retreat can enjoy complete exclusivity including private docking of the yacht. A three-hour excursion is offered for guests staying a minimum of three nights at the LUX* Beach Retreat or the LUX* Overwater Retreat.
