Formerly known as Lux* North Male Atoll resort, Jumeirah Group, the global luxury hotel company has announced its new Maldives resort, Jumeirah Maldives, and will be welcoming its first guests from 1st October 2021 onwards.
This latest addition reveals the transformation of Olhahali island into one of the Maldives’ most innovative resorts. Coming in at an admirable 4th place in prestigious Condé Nast Traveler’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Award - Indian Ocean Category, the former LUX* North Male Atoll Resort & Villas is contemporary in design and provides a stark contrast to the more traditional take on island life.
Make a choice between a 45 minute speedboat or a 15 minute seaplane transfer from Malé and arrive at the intimate resort, where you will discover an all-new modern twist on Maldivian hideaways, a far cry from the traditional woods and thatch.
If you're looking for similar resorts that is near to Malé International Airport and can be reachable via boat transfers, you may like to consider the following:
Striking new architecture abounds, with 67 villas, residences and retreats on either the beach or over water and with huge spacious living areas. Guests can expect outdoor decks, private gardens and private pools.
Unique in the Maldives, each residence is crowned with an expansive reef terrace, a magnificent private deck that is elevated five metres above the giant house lagoon with barbecue grills, a rooftop bar, cinema, Yoga plinth and starlight Jacuzzi, to create the ultimate sky lounge for those who love the high life.
Extraordinary service, a breathtaking dose of design, innovative dining concepts, and all the details that take a holiday from good to perfect: Jumeirah Maldives defies all norms and stereotypes.
Inspiring nautical forms and tones enhance this intimate resort elegantly styled by Singapore design group Miaja. Each of the 67 residences sits either on the beach or overwater so that guests benefit from a breezy living area which is 350 sq m at the very minimum.

Prestige Water Villa with Pool
Located off a jetty at the tip of the island, the views from your 369 sqm Prestige Water Villa with Pool are unobstructed.
The villa is similar in configuration as the Over Water Villa but it comes with an additional dining space within the living room that opens onto the pool. In addition, you can also dock your yacht right by your private outdoor deck.
Get creatively cool with a tasting menu or take sophisticated nights to bespoke new heights with award-wining chefs - whether by candle or moonlight you’ll also discover the most magical stages for special-occasion romance. From breakfast to lunch and dinner - and any impromptu moment between - you’ll find a menu to move you.
Glow is a true meeting spot of people and cuisines - dishing up an all-day menu that’s creatively international yet always in step with island life. Enjoy the view from your table on the outdoor terrace - and the very best in creative, international cuisine.
With shimmering views of the ocean, start your day with a selection of healthy, fresh and far-reaching breakfast buffet of round-the-world gastronomic delights. As the day beats on, the a la carte menu and expansive delicatessen offerings rise to the fore - and the global flavours only deepen as we slip into the night with an around-the-world gastronomic dinner.
Nestled just next to Glow, the main restaurant, Glow Bar is your go-to spot for a refined menu of bites and refreshments. Slipping into the night, find a unique cognac or devilish cocktail to melt into a soundtrack that’s addictively original.
Bright, light and always on the beat, Beach Rouge is the prime location to kick back with views across the pool, the lagoon and the Indian Ocean beyond.
From Spanish tapas to wood fired pizza and charcoal grilled seafood and meat, the emphasis is on simple quality ingredients, freshly cooked and placed at the middle of the table. It’s a place for flavours and good company to mix freely - and that extends to sunsets toasted with mixologist-made cocktails and our own resident DJ. Shisha service is available upon the guests request at Beach Rouge’s roof top.
Unexpected journeys are the most exciting, and INTI sweeps you to the culinary heights of Peru and Japan, with a live sushi and ceviche bar and outdoor terrace for dramatic views of the Indian Ocean. Served with imaginative sophistication, these are dishes by local and international masters that make INTI not only memorable, but truly inspirational.
Simple, clean and sharply executed, the finest and freshest fish, meat and vegetables find perfect balance on a taste tight-rope between two dazzlingly distinct cultures. Savour octopus with black olive mayo, Tiradito breads and smoky guacamole - or take in a five-course fresh fish Cerviche tasting. Sip on an iced Peruvian beer, warm sake or Pisco sour as the smells and sounds of Peru and Japan stir the sensory feast.
Spa and Wellness
This over-the-lagoon world of wellbeing is no ordinary spa. Here, the two-hour treatments for twosomes include body scrubs, massages and aromatherapy bathing rituals, ensuring you never miss a moment together. The treatment rooms are right over the water in view of where the ocean currents collide. For a more private experience, they also provide private spa treatments in your villa or in the fresh air on the rooftop with the waves as your soundtrack.
Not many islands are blessed with such a spectacular reef, metres from the beach, entertaining you with tropical fish, stingrays and the occasional pods of dolphins. The location of the resort is well-positioned as a launchpad for outdoor and adventure seekers.
For the adventurous, there’s a world class PADI dive centre and access to the Maldives’ most famous shipwrecks and caves. With a resident marine biologist on hand, you can find out more about the resort's coral restoration projects or discover turtles, spotted eagle rays, bannerfish and reef sharks who are all visitors to the house reef.
Plenty of other activities are available - some complimentary - such as stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, wind surfing and more.
